I can just hear Red now explaining to Mrs. Red about the WAX....lol

Thanks Steven for the new thread.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Thanks Steve!!

Mits said...

looking good there, Deb...hope it stays up.

Red said...

I'm donating all my wax to Wanda. Neither I nor Mrs Red use it.

Mits said...

NOTE FROM LISA re: eggs

Nest Update

01/27/09:
The two eggs are being kept warm by the parents, despite the snow. We hope the weather will improve around Thursday.

floralgirl said...

Dang, Jo mentions new thread, and voila, it appears....
Thanks Steve:)

Mema Jo said...

I FOUND YOU GUYS

Mema Jo said...

It really did work didn't it Megan!


THANK YOU MY FRIEND!

Mema Jo said...

What also works is when I say
I am taking a break...

Watch for Lib & Belle

Mits said...

Jo is like E.F. Hutton when she talks people listen;)

Red said...

Nap time for Red. BBL

Eagle-Eyed Sharon said...

Red obviously hasn't used his wax yet or he couldn't even consider taking a nap! :)

Mema Jo said...

There are those unattended eggs again
at BWE

deb said...

I hope Dexter is doing better today with his eyes.

Mema Jo said...

Right Back! Didn't want to get in
trouble...... lol
I am sure they are switching and probably finding their own food.

RED PROBABLY JUST SLID INTO SLUMBER LAND
WITH ALL THAT WAX HE HAS.

Mema Jo said...

Leaving for an hour or so......
Maybe they will come visit now..

deb said...

A note about the OK eagle nest cam:
"Our techies tell me that the problem is at the power plant where the camera signals are sent from the nest, and the transmission from there. Yesterday they rebooted their server, but that didn't solve the problem. OG&E will have to get their technicians out there (they all work in Oklahoma City), and that requires a work order and many even a couple of days wait. Looks like we are back in the same situation of breakdowns! Sorry, no one is more disappointed than I am."

Mits said...

well hope they get it fixed, Deb

deb said...

I am off to run a few errands, bbl.

hedgie said...

Video worked fine this time, Red....guess maybe too many visitors to the site b/4! Amazing...but I was holding my breath for a moment when the two bears were "cuddling" the white dog!!! Guess this is what we call symbiosis!

NatureNut said...

sshhh, the snow has stopped! It started to get brighter, but now has taken a turn to graaaay.

glo said...

I am So happy to say that Dex seems to be much more comfortable and alert than I have seen him since Fri night. Right now at least to my observations I think these trial drops are working in a positive way. We see the Vet tomorrow at 9:15 am.
I had to run to the grocery store real quick and he actually met me at the door when I came back. He has not moved for 3 days unless I went and got him and carried him to a new room or outside etc. He feels much more like moving around today so eye has to be feeling better to him. He wants to scratch at it though so maybe as it heals its gonna start to itch. hmmm...mtbr with that one I guess. His left eye is being treated too but it never did seem as dreadfully inflamed etc as right eye did.

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Glo, I am so happy to hear that Dex is doing better. Me and Sher were wondering about him a while ago!

Eagle-Eye's Sissy said...

Looks like changing of the guard at BWE!

glo said...

I feel encouraged to see this too. He has a pretty long way to go and we don't even know what has caused it to begin with but right now it looks like the new drops are being quite helpful.

NatureNut said...

Saw 4 juvies sitting at edge of ice on other side of Jug Bay.Went outside & an adult eagle flew over my head, going down river. Went behind other office bldg & watched juvies thru telescope. One something flew & I got it's pic--might have been one of the juvies.What a wonderful day!

glo said...

Awww Nature nut The sights and osunds of eagles soaring free. Its awesome for sure.

NatureNut said...

Just read back......
Glo, how wonderful that Dex is better. Pets are so stoic--suffer in silence & we only know something's wrong by their behavior.

glo said...

Yes so true I knew he wasn't feeling well Fri night when he went in to bed ealry but I really knew he was in trouble on Sat morning when he wasn't on the bed when I got up. We were sitting in the Vets parking lot when he opened at 8 am and immediately were referred to the Specialist facility in IA. We just didn't get to see the referred physicaln until yesterday. it was an associate of his who took care of him on Sat. At anyrate I do think he is in good hands and I do think some prayers are being answered. He is sleeping now but even that seems so much more restful than it was all weekend.

wvgal_dana said...

Glo I am so happy for you and Dex ( : ( :
give him a pat and hug for me. We love our doggies for sure. Or if you have a kitty...these pets are like our children. They depend on us to care for them. Yet they give us so much more. Continue prayers for you and Dex.

Mema Jo said...

Loretta - you have had a very good birding day!

Glo - Very relieved to hear about Dex feeling better. His symptoms sounded like my virus where I didn't want to move for days! I hope the eye clears up -
sounds like it is. Prayers for Dex!
Paul's doggies too - they now have meds from the Vet.

Geula said...

Hi kids!
Try as I may, I can't get anywhere NEAR the webcam......OUR webcab......THE webcam..I keep getting an error message....one of those 404 grrrrr. messages! is it just me?

H E L P!

NatureNut said...

Just found out that our naturalist, Greg, saw the Golden Eagle juvie here on Inaug. Day.It was near a wooden bridge over a creek that leads to the State Park next door.
Also 3 snowy owls have been seen on East Coast area around here.

magpie said...

Geula..
Great to see you here, and if it is any comfort, I couldn't get on to the Blog and still cannot get on to the cam....

One of those things I guess.

Mits said...

good for Dex, and a thankful shout out to St Francis:)

Geula said...

I can't even get to the site! BWAAAAAAH! I can blog though.....thats some comfort!

What's the link for the Maine nest? if there is one...(my mind!)

Mits said...

Oops! This link appears broken.
DNS error - cannot find server.


isn't that just ducky...off to put away groceries...my road was treated this a.m., just snizzling here now.

Geula said...

Okay.....I'm happy that it's not just ME that gets the OOOOPS message...but it's a bummer that we can't see the eagles!

Geula said...

First the ZA cuts off the Pandacam. Now this? what else can happen...I shouldn't ask that!

magpie said...

Here's Maine link, Geula, which you will probably get from more than just me:

Maine Eagle Nest Cam

Well, maybe we can see NCTC together later ☺

magpie said...

My message says:
"Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" but it also says the site may be experiencing difficulties or I am not connected to the Internet So it must be the first one.

Meanwhile: Great News, Glo, a very encouraging report on Dex...☺ ☺

Costume Lady said...

Hi, Geula...stick around...Lib and Belle should be coming to their nest shortly.

Mits said...

mins has the oopps message

magpie said...

Thanks to Mema Jo for giving Hedgie the link to the blog, who gave it to me and I saved it....

I am happy to say that in my book, the Woodsboro Ladder truck made it to the Pentagon...so I finally made it to that chapter. ☺

Loretta: This really is a great day for you there, can't wait to see your pictures, makes us that more anxious to schedule that Field Trip !

TTFN - Hope everyone's afternoons are going well. Back Later. When the cam opens up I hope.

magpie said...

There are two eagles at Norfolk to watch, one in nest and one on branch.

Mits said...

tried sneaking on from Beakspeake...no luck

magpie said...

Norfolk Link, Geula:

Norfolk Nest

( I have to test drive that...)

floralgirl said...

Well, crud, rushed back in here to see if there would be a visit before dark:(
Just finished shoveling my very long driveway. wow- I am worn out, my back is feeling it.
Glad to hear Dex is doing a little better, Glo♥
me and the dog are munching on Tostitos, suppose I should make some dinner...

magpie said...

Okay that works, birds still there.
'Bye.

hedgie said...

Geula, sometimes the links get corrupted...mine must be, too, cause I can't get back in, either. Hmmm....someone help, please!

paula eagleholic said...

Cam back on...

floralgirl said...

This happens sometimes, site or cam is having issues, all we can do is wait til they fix it...

magpie said...

While we are talking about all this by the way, does ANYONE have the NCTC cam up ?

hedgie said...

Okay, so it's not just me and Geula!!
Glo, such wonderful report on Dex. Bless his little heart; hope things continue to improve.

floralgirl said...

I still can't open cam page, or any FWS site...

magpie said...

I don't mind waiting on it, I am just so doggone spoiled...still cannot open mine up.

hedgie said...

Not back on here, Paula!
Loretta, you ARE having a super day! Bad weather is good for something, huh???

hedgie said...

Me, either, Megan...they all give me either an oops page or an error page!

hedgie said...

Just for the heck of it...going to reboot.

Mits said...

no cam here still

Mits said...

sitting here munching on California sushi rolls with ginger and wasabi..yum..

movin said...

My live cam looked frozen, so I tried refreshing it.....

Same story as you ... can't find fws.com, or something similar.

Happened at Catalina last year, and it turned out they had forgotten to pay their site fee...

Or it could be a weather outage, or a technical necessity while they are repairing the live feed.

Geula said...

There are advantages to having 2 computers...on 1 Puter, I can't get the Maine Cam and on the other one, I can. Go figure!

movin said...

The Hummingbird chick is growing like crazy, and it looks like it has pushed the remaining egg out of the nest now.



C(°ٿ°)D

Jim

hedgie said...

Nope, that didn't help.

Mema Jo said...

No FWS sites... Can't be found!

I'll send an email & hopefully someone will open it.......

T-Bird said...

hello everyone

T-Bird said...

what's up with the cam? did the weather get it?

floralgirl said...

Apparently the FWS sites are having issues right now-so no cam:(

Mits said...

I sent an e-mail to Steve, but if he sees Jo's name sure he will open it;)

Mits said...

well I have an issue with FWS:(

Mits said...

maybe it is a budget cut:(

floralgirl said...

I have so many issues....

Mits said...

do you think if we send a message to the President's blackberry he will respond?

floralgirl said...

Do you have his email address? I would love to have it-
Maybe the FWS needs a bailout check...

Mema Jo said...

It very well could be a budget cut -
THEN WHAT WILL WE DO!!!!

Like Megan reported - NONE of those sites will open........

Guess we'll check Lake Washington out

floralgirl said...

This does happen every so often with FWS sites.

Mits said...

MESSAGE FROM STEVE...

I can't get any FWS website. That's a problem beyond our control. Hang tight, they'll fix it.


Steve

Geula said...

Dear Mr. President,
I know you are new to this job and you've got lots of other things on your mind (like world peace and a failing economy) but MAYBE, just MAYBE you could do us eaglemomsters a wee favor? Could you order the FWS to fix the site and the cam for us? ah...and while you're at it, could you allocate some funds to Zoo Atlanta so that people all over the world can see the most wonderful Pandas live and grow?
Sincerely....chearyshe from Israel who REALLY loves eagles and pandas!

Mits said...

yes, and it eventually does come back on, but I wonder with a new administration, whether they would close it down

T-Bird said...

I'll second that to the president. LOL

glo said...

New thread and info on cam with link. I have the cam on my desktop but not my laptop at least not the last time I tried.

Geula said...

Little Xi Lan is getting bigger and we can't see him....the eagles are doing nestorations and we can't see them...

::SIGH::

Mema Jo said...

Geula - It's a sad day in the cam world

movin said...

Well, I finally got the cam up by using the second link from Steve; but as someone said, it's dark, could be snowing, and nobody is on the nest.

I was sure that Belle would have laid her first egg and we would be frozen out, as has often happened.

Jim

movin said...

I forgot. I came back over here to tell you that there's an interesting new blog entry at San Diego about the procedure to ween ZZ, which has just begun and will last about 3-4 weeks.

glo said...

Well MeMa Jo If it is needed and serves a purpose I would be very happy to post videos back on the original first blog for the NCTC Eagles of Sheperdstown Blog That I worked hard on the first couple of years. Folks will need to send them to me. Or send the links to me whether they are on their BLOGs or on You Tube and I will get as many as are shared with me into that one spot. Someone needs to let me know if you all would like me to do this.

Tuesday

Apologies for my neglect on this site.  I'm thinking that it might be time to conclude this blog, as I started it before the social me...
