Thank you Steve, for the update. We appreciate all the hard work on everyone's part there. Thanks for the new thread, I will head back to tell the others. ☺ ... if someone else does not beat me to it!
Hello Red... it's all wet and soggy up this way. What kind of weather are you getting>
If anyone has not checked out the links to pics on BWO and BWE pages, they are really a treat!I recognize MITS's pix on BWO -
Good morning, Margy! Thanks Steve for the new thread and the cam info!
Rainy in Bluefield this morning.
Oh, Sea Eagle on the nest at Finneys!
Howdy Double E-S - I am going to scoot over and alert Suz that the bird is there...
Waiting on company at that nest, that I hope shows up ☺
Got to head out and get some things done. Very wet and sloppy here so would rather not . Hope everyone can get well, or stay well. Good day to all...xo (Canada Geese flying low over the area, going every which way, in small groups, very loud. ♫ ♪ )
Lone Sea Eagle just disappeared. :(
GOOD MORNING EVERYONE....BUMMER ON THE BATTERY, STEVE.
technical problems at BWO and BWE too
Is it just me or is others having problems getting to the Sea Eagles web page?
no problems here, Red

Good wet morning! Trees and bushes are iced over, and it is raining....guess the roads must be okay cause no school delays here.Glad you weren't called intowork, Margy!Thanks Steve and John and rest of the NCTC crew for taking care of the cams.
We may get sunshine later but we are still cloudy after 24 hours of rain. Lots of flash flooding around too.
Red, here's the link:Finney
MORNIN' HEDGIE!---Our schools are on 2 hour delay!----There is some icing out in the county----forecasting more ice & snow later!!
FINLAND OSPREY NEST
Hey, Sharon, how's Thelma? We haven't seen her for a long time!! Hope she's okay!
Thanks Hedgie. Guess I have a problem. Thats the same link I have and I just get a message that The Page Cannot Be Displayed. Same thing on IE and Firefox. I'll play with it.
Thank you too MITS. :)
Thanks HEDGIE!---I hadn't been able to bring that link up!!!
Lynn, Thelma is okay. She has had that yucky cold that has been going around. I told her everybody was looking for her and she needed to check in. I am going to Bedford this evening and to Charlottesville in the morning.
RED!---It's CRAZY!----I hadn't been able to open that link for a long time!!----This morning---using HEDGIE'S LINK it opened up for me---same with HELEN'S this am!---Pray it stays!---SUZANNE is always sending me that site!!!
Thanks SHARON for letting us know-----will keep YOU & SISSY in my thoughts & prayers!!----GOD BLESS!!
Well, tell T-bird to kick that bugs' butt and get well!! And don't you catch it, Sharon!! Sure would be great if you could get that last drain out, but if you're still having alot of drainage, guess it won't be yet. Know you'll be glad when it happens, and when you can stop the long hauls to Charlottesville.
Red, can't offer any suggestions. You're the ace!! Maybe reboot and then try?
Raining harder and ice-laden sticks are coming down...don't have a helmet--LOL--so a bit leery about going out to get papers.
Rebooting won't help Hedgie, I haven't been able to get into that site for about a week now. Can't understand why I cannot get to this one site. Everything else seems to be working. And since its happening on both IE and Firefox, I'm thinking it's not my PC but probably the local area Internet server.
NORFORK NEST is BLACK!----It was open yesterday!!
I'm looking out my window and seeing something I haven't seen for days. Sunshine!!!!
ME NEST--MT---Foggy & windy---appears to be snowing!!
it stopped working yesterday, Norma, it was only up for a little while
RED!---Aren't you the LUCKY one!!!---Tell me what sunshine looks like!---ho! All I see is FOG--FOG & I hear light rain!!
update for BWO AND BWE.....01/06/09:Technical Note-We're waiting for our ranger to reboot the computer.
HELEN---Thanks!----I thought it was too good to be true!----Praying all goes well at that site!---Always was a favorite of mine---
NPR just forecast Eastern Panhandle could get a few inches of snow tomorrow!!!
Okay, I braved the gauntlet! Nothing fell on me, but picked up a few small limbs on the way...heard several crashes in the back woods.
Norma, Here's what it looks like.Sunshine
Oh, Norma, hope they are wrong about that! I have a hair apptmt. tomorrow afternoon. Argh!Going to read papers. BBL.
HEDGIE!----You can't believe those forecasts!!----They are never correct!!!!!!!!
WOW!!---RED!---That is BEAUTIFUL!!Thanks for reminding us!!! ho!
Good morning. Beautiful picture, Red. I sure wish we had leaves on the trees!
Oh, please send that sunshine this way......So cold and still raining here...
morning Deb. saw all your encouraging news last night:)
2 eagles at Two harbors
BWO and BWE are back up.
super, and there is a fishcrow at BWO, but he is not eating the leftover fish from yesterday
MORNIN' DEB & FLORAL GIRL!!----MEGAN--LOVE your ATAR!!----(he makes me smile)!!!
Deb that picture is misleading. It was taken a couple of years ago in the fall before the leaves dropped. Those trees are barren now too but sunshine is still beautiful.
Good morning everyone. Just in from working an overnight but checking my email I found this story. I think you all will love this too. Dog and the Elephant
WHOA!!---Maybe we can get RED to BOTTLE the SUNSHINE!!---& send it NORTH!!----ho!
Good one Glo. I saw that on CBS's morning show Sunday.
Red, I was so jealous of your trees, I love it when the leaves are out! I wondered how they came back so fast after you talked about all the leaves you had to clean up!
what a nice story, Gol:)
That was a nice story, Glo, I saw it Sunday morning, too.
CBS Sunday a.m.'s always have such great stories
OH GLO!----That just about the 'BESTEST" story ever!-----Now I wish I could "HUG" both of them!!----Such a warm loving story!!!---Thanks!
I almost always watch Charles Osgood's Sunday morning show.
Oh, WOW!! What a beautiful story!! Thanks Glo!
big turkey at PA
dawn is breaking at LW
Good Morning Everyone...I also saw the story of the dog and elephant. Amazing and so heartwarming...now how did that elephant know the dog was sick? I think their brain is bigger than a peanut:)Margy, wherever you are, going to get my hair done now...won't be done in time to welcome Ceil and Co. to Martinsburg. Don't stay out in the wet and cold very long...don't want you getting the bug too:(
when I talked to Ceil, she said the same thing Wanda....they had passed Cumberland when I talked to her, she said it seemed like they were moving very fast last night
got to go get ready for zoo;)
RED!---I read that you love GRISHAM'S books!!---I think I have probably read all of them too!---Have you read "THE APPEAL"?----He says this book is about WEST VIRGINIA politics!!---our SUPREME COURT!!---(NOT A GOOD THING!!)----But is kinda true!!
HELEN---Cumberland, MD?----HECK! She's home!---Wonderful!
Yes Norma. I read the Appeal as soon as it came out. Waiting on the next one now. lol
DIVERS COMING IN!
Well, darn they went up, maybe they will come back down.
ATLANTA ZOO!----Will show pics of our favorite BOY CUB---'PRINCE XI' on Mon--Wed & Fri!!-----(SISSY--I guess best we can hope for)
RED!!---Doesn't say much about WV politics -- does it?
Did you see the film clip of Lun Lun and Xi Lan playing in their hammock. So Cute.
Norma I'm not too impressed with Politics anywhere. lol
Well I'll second that Red! not impressed with politics or politicians...
I think we can all chime in on politicians! I like your new eagles, Red.
CURSES DEB!!---Missed them--was getting dressed!---laundry room is just off the family room---so on cool days---throw sweats in dryer---SO WARM!---
I AGREE WITH YOU ALL ON POLITICS!!!---but this deals with Supreme Court cases---peoples' lives involved!! (forgive me kids---i get carried away sometimes)----ho!---(all the time)---ho!
Item in BWE reminds me of a dragonfly...Train running 49 mins late on its schedule through Martinsburg, but that could get better or worse .. "Time will Tell...."
But remember Norma, It's just a book.
HEY LOLLY!!----"The View" are discussing your show!!---'THE BACHELOR SHOW"--"WHOPPI" wants to shoot them all!!---ho!---Others enjoyed it!!!
Snow and rather still at Maine, haven't seen those birds in awhile...Hope the day continues okay for everyone, will check the link that Glo posted a little later on...Think I will start making my way towards the AMTRAK Platform. I might not see the "kids" depending on where they are at the time, but I will see and photograph the train!TTFN xo ☺
If you are looking for Panda action, Bai & ZZ are still a lot of fun to watch.C(°ٿ°)DJim
RED!!----All we need to see is a pic of BOY CUB!!----and he melts your heart!!---
The fish at BWO from last night was still there earlier this morning, but now it's been moved or taken.Did anyone see what might have been there in the last few minutes??C(°ٿ°)DJim
MORNIN' MOVIN'JIM!---THANKS--Will check the SD PANDAS!!----
fish is still there. lower left hand corner, where it has been since last night
OREGON NEST---Just some snow in the bottom of the nest!!----
HELEN---How long have they been on the train coming home?---Less that going there?
BIG RIG STEVEthis is an interesting site, one of earth cams top 25 cams of 2008, tons of info and pictures, and he travels with his kitty TK aka Truck Kat...he just left a truck stop in Wisconsin headed for Minnesota
Norma, they left Sat, had to be bussed to Spokane, got on train Sunday, missed the connection on Monday and left Chicago last night, one day longer than going out
A new osprey cam we can watch come March:Kentucky OspreyThere are some clips from last season's nest--it will be a good view. I found this on the Maine Forum.
wow....that will be cool, Deb....can't wait, March will be here before we know it:)
I e-mailed the Dundelin site this morning. He said the new cam is installed, now they just need to get the connections done and it will be up. He didn't say when that would be.
HELEN!---Bet your M&MS will be delighted to see them!!!!
THANKS DEB!---I checked & I have that site----must have gotten it last year!!
for sure, Norma, just have to get schedules together to allow that to happen...
Helen, Big Rig Steve is headed to Michigan, not Minnesota
That's strange, Red, yesterday his destination was Minnesota, I forget which town. Wonder what happened??
You were right at one time, Helen. The pin was in Minnesota yesterday.
Eagle at Two Harbors.
Now both eagles at TH.
according to his pin he has been in Wisconsin, looked like he was headed to Minn.....will look at it later, he really trys to keep it updated.
Ceil just called, she missed Margy, but Mary Margaret saw her and took a pic.
must be passing thru a dead zone now.....off to zoo later
Oh, that truck cam is interesting... I don't have much use for the lava lamp cam though....Helping hubby complete an application for a gov. job, wow, the paperwork is mighty....
I got a severe warning message when I tried to open Steve's Big Rig site...it said NOT to proceed!! Any thoughts?Yea, Margy....cool to greet the passersby!!
I saw the Dog and elephant piece on CBS, too...love Steve Hartman's pieces...he is following in Charles Kuralt's footsteps.
Keeping my fingers crossed, Megan!!!
My security settings warned me not to open that site, too, Hedgie. Just google earth cams top 25 cams of 2008 and you will see the truck cam towards bottom of page.
HEDGIE---I get that same warning when I open the OREGON!!--still open it!!
I was lurking a while this am...Chuckling that Mary Margaret got picof Margy!Everyone stay well - Icy trees are beautiful if you can stay inside!Just saw the otter bros. at the zoo soMits must be keeping them on their toes.Maybe in a day or two I will last longer on here.. lolove ♥
I love grumpy but I sure feel like Dumpy Thanks for cards and well wishes......
MOVIN'JIM----Checked SD site---SU LIN is on view!-----PRECIOUS must be busy!!---That LITTLE IMP is always busy!!
Love you Jo. Get better quick!!
MORNIN' JO!!---We miss you bushels-----but want you to get better!!---Crummy weather any way!!
MISS PAULA!!!----pray her MOTHER isn't worse!!------and I MISS DANA too!----ED must be feeling worse!!---DANA be careful you don't get the flu!!!!!
time for food!---
Oh, Yes, that bug got me good!Went to Son's house for dinner on Monday night...youngest son and his GF was there also....apparently grandson had a bug...gave it to me, Michael and his GF...darn thing hit me like a ton of bricks...couldn't do a thing last night...didn't go into work today...and not gonna visit Mom either....don't want to give it to her...finally starting to feel better now.And to top it off, electric went off for 4 hours this morning...lines down across Rt 15. House is finally warming back up.
Took some pics of the ice w/ my new camera..turned out pretty good. Even took 2 shots through sunroom windows...very little reflection, whereas with my old camera, it was awful!
Paula, we figured you were a sick cookie last night. So sorry, but glad you are better today! Bummer to have no heat when you don't feel well!Jo, you take it easy. We're here waiting for you when you feel up to it!Hope that Ceil can get the pic of Margy from MM's cam to post !!
Hdegie - I tried to catch the cardinal at my deck feeder this morning....he was too quick...then sat on the far side of the feeder...only got his tail...ice hanging from the feeders, too.
Megan - did you and hubby get the bug as well...darn thing spreads quick!
Deb - glad uncle is improving and niece found a new place.Jo - hope you keep getting better.Sharon - good luck at your appt.Red - send the sunshine this way!Glo - haven't seen the dog and elephant story yet, but heard about it.Margy - how cool about the train!
Deb - thanks for the Kentucky site.Mits - haven't checked out the rig yet, either.
That big rig website message is just like Oregon eagle cam...OK to proceed!
Big rig traveling to Quincy, MI.
Ok - Ceil & Co. is going to make it into DC right about NOW ! Train due in at 1:30 - just checked and automated Julie lady said 5 mins late...train picked up 20 minutes between Martinsburg and Washington -
Trip to the train platform was great fun! Huge crowd getting on, though: Two Passengers! ☺Train was only 25 minutes late, and obviously made up some time further East. It is very hard to see into the tinted windows....but I waved my cardboard flag and my rainbow windsock, had on my Eagle Scarf and Beads from the Open House.Saw one person or two waving back at me but was so hard to discern...the people on the train just might remember passing through Martinsburg this morning....☺Finally, The Lambert Delegation should be just about finished with the long journey... Welcome Home, Ceil, Mary Margaret and Jim !xo
Paula and Megan : Glad you could plunk on the keyboard a little this morning, hope you have a Lightning Bug! Get it? Goes away fast?Thanks for the KY Osprey link, Deb, somehow, I had that from last year I think Rockin' Circle R sent it to me, being as how she moved to KY in September of '07. There were some great cam shots, and those rascals grew so fast!
Friend in New York is enjoying some great wildlife:"I am hearing Great-Horned owls and Screech Owls and Red Fox mating calls at night so spring is in the air for others as well." Deb, Wanda: Horned Owls and Red Fox, should make you smile ☺
Finally ! I see the turkey live at Snowman Cam...!
..or maybe I was imagining it...all gone now. ?? Maybe it was an old unrefreshed pic. :(
Missed the turkey...only got to see a truck pulling out!
Just did a little speed-camming, can't find much right now...hummingbird of course, though. Norfolk all black still...Back in a little while. xo
Sorry to hear our cam is down again...at least they know what the issue is and are working on it!
Youngest son Michael is leaving tomorrow for 2 weeks in Jamaica. He is going with the church group from school...they go every year. Going to be counseling some young kids in orphans home down there. Of course, he has waited till today to pack!!
That's a special mission for your son, Paula. Best wishes to him on his journey.
Paula, you should sneak into Michael's suitcase!! Have a friend from work who owns beach property there where people go naked...LOL! He always said he would retire there, but it hasn't happened yet...bet his newer wife had something to say about that!Margy, bet MM was excited to see you! Can't believe tha Ceil missed you.
Hedgie, they were on the other side of the Sleeper Car, and MITS had already told me that she wasn't sure she would be able to get to the Martinsburg side...so I was prepared for it. ☺ I asked the conductor that if he knew the Lambert family in the Sleeper car to tell them I said Hi!
I know you all probably saw an earlier post I made, and am probably way ahead of me anyway, but BE SURE to check out the picture link on the left side of the BWO Page.... I believe our star screen-grabber MITS is the featured "artist."
Eagle BWE and sunshine, too!
BWEagle moved the cornstalk again!
Thanks for the Alert Paula, ref BWE - almost missed it!Sunshine.....
Whoa, thank goodness the old pic was still on there before I refreshed, or I would have missed it!Gone now... :(
BWE - MTBWO - 1 eagle!!
I think Dana and Ed had swimming at Winchester today...hope they were able to make it okay...Have to leave, See you all later...xo ☺
Guess it took him that long to fly over the Visitors Center...those talons !
BOTH EAGLES AT BWE!
Now just one at BWE -BWO - MT
Jamaica, huh...now that sounds good...Had to run out to use a fax machine, what a cold, wet, dreary day here.Hope you feel better Paula and Jo. I still feel ill, not really sure what the issue is though, I think hubby's problem last nite was stress and lack of food in his tummy.. Gotta keep an eye on him...
You might have to change your avatar to DOC Megan...☺
Both eagles back at BWE - Out the door now for me.TTFN xo
No can do, cause I seem to be eternally grumpy right now...
Gotta keep on eye on you, too, Megan!!! Stress is probably working on you, too, poor girl. Neither of you needs to end up with an ulcer!
No pool exercisiing today.I took long panda nap - feeling tired today.Hubby is a little better....sleeping alot!I did feed hubby chicken noodle soup. He hates the liquid butdid eat some noodles last night.It stayed down so that's a goodsign. Thank you ALL for prayers.Deb so glad your Uncle is doing betterGreat on the resturant!Megan and hubby hope you both are feeling better whether stress orthe bug.Margy nice home coming you gaveat the train station.Paula sorry you caught the bugglad your feeling better.Jo just keep on getting better !
What is this about Mits on BWO? I'm not even sure I have anything for BWO...????? Is that Blackwater Osprey and BWE Blackwater Eagle??? I don't see anything about pics...help!!
Lynn, BWO is osprey and BWE is eagle. On each page, there are links for pics!
Hedgie on the BWO for the Osprey platform, page, to the left, do you see something that says Nest update, and "an interesting sequence of shots." - if you can click on that, you will see some still pictures. I think MITS got a few of those and probably sent them to Lisa. If that doesn't work, let me know and I will try something later when I come back. Have to run an errand for a senior.xo
Eagles back at BWE w/ fluff
I did send the link to my SIL that loves elephants. Glo thank you for posting it.
BWEagles in and out!
Thanks, Margy...I got it!! They are great captures...go, Mits!Hi, Dana...we've been talking about you all...how is Ed? Did you go swimming?
Your fingers typed faster than mine, Dana! Got my questions answered before I asked!! LOL.
RAIN AT BW
I just hooked the cam up, but we are having problems with the charging system. This should be taken care of soon, we are installing a new solar panel in the next day or so. Thanks for your patience...
Thank you for the update and all your hard work on the cam! I know it's nasty out there today!
Hey - I didn't think the cam was on by your remarks...but it sure is!Thank you so much!!
John, thanks for all your efforts, we really appreciate it!
I thought the same thing, Paula, and then noticed no lines in the still cam.
Is the Kent cams getting worked on today or next week. I was never clear.
Deer at snowman cam
I'm glad I don't live in Gaylord, Michigan. They get way too much snow there. Glad I got out of Canada too. lol
Thanks, John!!Red, I thought someone said two more weeks before Kent is working.When did you live in Canada???
Yup, Red, I'll watch it from afar!
I took it to mean next week, Red, but it really just said next Wednesday. It would be nice if it was today!
deers & turkey in MI now
That is a big turkey!
Hedgie, I worked in Canada for 11 years. 1977 - 1988. Near Toronto.
I hope we get a visit soon.
Yup, that one was eatin' size, Deb!
Hi all! Just jumping on for a moment. Tried to stay away today to get things accomplished.Paula, glad to see you on. Hope your bug does not last two long.Margy, Oh, I would have loved to seen you on that platform. You are a GREAT friend!!!
whoops! make that "too long". LOL
Boy, I am out of it...make that "have seen". Time to get off!
Lolly if we all tried to correct the mispells and grammer errors here the blog would be twice as long. lol
You're right Red. Guess it is the teacher in me. LOL
Red, did you enjoy the time you spent in Canada? I guess that weather in that area is on a par w/ New England and the upper MI peninsula, huh?
Hi, Lolly! Whatcha' been doin' today?
I normally correct mistakes too but I used "is" this morning where "Are" should have been. I really had the urge to correct it. lol
Yes Hedgie, I really liked Canada (in the summer) We lived in a little town named Erin and drove about 30 miles to work. I worked about 10 miles NW of the Toronto Airport. Snowed a lot but they know how to remove it. In 11 years I never missed a day of work because of snow.
