Good morning Eagle Friends!
Good morning everyone.Must have been false labor or there;s one buried down there some where LOL. I checked her about 3:30 and she was up then too. Not a very restful night at that nest for soem reason. Keep an eagle eye.Off to coffee and dog treats.
Morning Sissy and Glo:)
Isnt' that just the most beautiful egg!
Morning Glo! They do seem very restless this morning.
Did I miss anything eggciting this weekend?
Good Morning All!Thx, Steve! Great picture!!!☺
Hi, Sissy. Things were pretty normal all weekend I think. Babysitting of egg, switching of sitters, food brought in, some vocalizing....
Geez, I forgot all about this silly day- groundhog day...at my house no groundhog would ever have a chance to make a statement, but sorry, Phil Says "Six More Weeks of Winter!"
Morning all. Heard Phil said 6 more weeks of winter. Lets get that little varmint.
Phil Says "Six More Weeks of Winter!"Phil's official forecast as read February 2nd, 2009 at sunrise at Gobbler's Knob:Hear Ye Hear Ye On Gobbler's Knob this glorious Groundhog Day, February 2nd, 2009 Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Prognosticator of all Prognosticators Awoke to the call of President Bill Cooper And greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths After casting a joyful eye towards thousands of his faithful followers, Phil proclaimed that his beloved Pittsburgh Steelers were World Champions one more time And a bright sky above me Showed my shadow beside me. So 6 more weeks of winter it will be.
Morning everyone, that was what Suzanne sent out this morning, regardless of what the little varmint says, 6 weeks from now we will be closer to spring and osprey season:)

Good morning! Can you believe I am up and on this early. While the jubby's away the wife will play. No, I had to get up have a dentist appointment this morning. Yuk!See there is still one egg. She was really restless last night...time for another egg!
Mits, we don't want snow on Belle!
Gosh, what a tree limb she is moving around!
I am going to sit back, finish waking up, read the paper, drink my coffee.....and lurk!!!BBL
Mits the last I heard the big storm coming up the coast is suppose to stay out to sea but the west storm is going to clobber the States over the mountain. Look out Belle.
I'm just looking at the changed forecast now, Ceil...the other day accu-weather said we could have 6 to 12, but now basically nothing
guess they both went out to breakfast, maybe she has to fly around to get the action started
Off to shop. BBL
If I had a nickel for every time my feed froze I'd buy you all lunch...I love the way you can really see the beak and talon color, tho.
Mine is freezing all the time too, quite bothersome I must say!!
Sissy were you watching the hummers this a.m., when the sun shines on them the colors are spectacular....and this is a cam in Ecuador, how do they do it?
Good morning, everyone. Osprey in HH.
wow up close and personal, Deb.
Good morning everybody!
I know Mits, I was watching. That is so beautiful. Funny how that cam is so clear from Ecuador and the one here in WV freezes and all that junk all the time!
Blank screen on the live feed, still cam is up though.
Good morning Miss Sharon:), does anyone know which way our solar power thingy is facing?????
Hit refresh, my live feed is still up.
my live feed is up
Mine came back up.
Those coati are at the Equador cam.
Good morning everyone! My gosh, it's been a looooong time since I've been on here! I'm trying to catch up. So the first egg was laid on Saturday?
Whoa- they are drinking all the hummer food:( there are several.
BOY THEY ARE BIG BUGGERS!!!!!!
BRS is headed to Denver. Osprey is back and there is a raid going on in Ecuador!
Mits are you watching the hummer cam? Up close and personal with the varmits.
It's a wonder those bees don't sting them. They are gonna have to refill the feeder.
Hi Danielle....how are you...yes, egg late friday or early saturday a.m.
they almost knocked the feeder over!!!!!
here they come again
There they go, can't imagine there is much liquid left for the birds.
Update on my uncle from my aunt:Bob can now move his whole right foot on command! He had spasms that were driving him crazy and the Dr. said that was part of the heeling. Bob said, "I had a talk with God and told him I sure would like to have control of both legs and pretty soon I was able to move my whole foot"! You are all such good cheerleaders. Thanks for the prayers!!
the bananas are for them...leave the nectar alone you big bullies
isn't that wonderful, Deb:)
Dang, one is back and drinking all the food.
Welcome back, Danielle. The first egg came in during the on Saturday. We first saw it about 2:55 AM.
their tails are neat
Those coati are bound to be sticky messes after being in that feeder.
Make that Danelle. :)
one of the coatis, swiped at the hummers
Good Morning, all.Welcome back, Danelle!!
meanwhile back in California, that hummer baby is huge:)
Yikes, weird interference on live feed sound...Hey Paula:) Hello Danielle, missed your comment...I got too many screens open.
Hey Deb, BRS, looks like he is heading into some dark clouds, wonder if he will get some snow showers?
heard that Megan, maybe they are adjusting some stuff, I hope
deer on snowman cam
Eagles at PH
I saw that, too. Now they have disappeared. I checked the forecast for Denver, 49 and partly cloudy today, 31 mostly cloudy tomorrow. No snow forecast.
yeah seem to be disappearing, they looked so threatening for awhile
Good Morning, Danielle, long time no see:) Good to have you back. We will all be happy to follow along with you on you Invetro Journey. Good Luck!
Good Morning to All here on board and to all the lurkers out there! Great picthat Steve has posted for us! I also forgot about Punxsutawney Phil! Great commentary Suz sent us - thanks for posting Mits! I don't see that Ms Sunshine has her computer up/running yet.
eagles working together a PH....what a wonderful site that is
Deb - Glad to hear about the progress your uncle is making...wonderful news.
I lost BRS- maybe it's just as well, I think I was getting carsick...or trucksick...
Thank you Paula for the new prelog to our beautiful couple on the Momster's Home Page. I love the pic you have on there!
egg in view
Eagle up on back of nest
LOL moving a big reserve pile of fluff!
According to his map he is in Denver, but I sure didn't see that he was that close when the cam went down. Some parts of CO have bad coverage. He uses Sprint Broadband, so must not have any coverage.
BRS SAYS:Remember! I am a moving object! If I lose signal or switch towers the camera may drop out.Just reload your page or check back in a few minutes
Eagle exchange! For a second there thought I saw another egg, it was a talon! Rearranged some fluff. I am now off to the dentists. BBL
My cam hung up....thought there was a switch! Looks like Belle...
Checking emails now - Jim sent one that is really great - Duck in a Truck!Wonder if Big Rig Steve has any mascot riding with him?
A cat, Jo, someone else will have to get you his name. BRS is approaching Denver.
BRS has a cat that rides with him....TK (truck kat)
Great! LIVE FEED still has LibStill Feed now has Belle.Refreshed Still Feed and Belle stayed on the egg cupRefreshed Live Feed and took a good minute or two to come back up BUT Lib had gone poof and there was our Belle.I have been keeping both Still & Live cams up/running. It can get confusing as to Who is Where Doing What!
I just remembered it is TJ.
I'll keep my eyes open for his cat!That is so cool......
Both in nest now-
Oh well, I was close!
Thank you Deb I will check out his photos - I guess I thought I saw ananimal on one of them.
Thanks Mits! It's ok Deb you were only one letter away from being right! lol
he has lots of pics and videos of TK
As usual Lib is tiding up He best go get lunch startedWhoops! Guess Belle wants to get her own
They are such wonderful parents!! Lib is a great husband (kinda like my Tom!).
Changing of the guard!
Live cam reallly slowwwwww today...can't get a decent refresh time....
Still cam show an MT nest....
Two Poofs Not Allowed
I thought it was just me, Paula, I refresh and it just disappears a long time
Honestly, live feed is driving me bonkers today, it keeps freezing and takes forever to come back up after refreshing. I bet I have refreshed over 50 times this morning.
This cam thing is driving me nuts. Can't keep it running much at all. Have to restart every couple of minutes.
Eagle back, in egg cup.
I see we are all having that problem. Eagle back in nest.
SOMEONE IS BACK
Live feed is going good right nowMaybe those spreaded wings were part of a poop shoot! lol
Jo, you have mail>
yes we are...AAAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!!
They didn't take such a long break but to us birders it gets your heart a pumping until they get back.
Yep, I have two frozen eagles..and my cam has sound, unfortunately it's the sound of me swearing...
I'm checking mailKeep making comments
BRS pulling into a TS
HO, you don't wan to hear some of my comments:)
I refreshed again, I hear the daycare kiddies outside.
If I worked at that day care, them younguns would be outside all the time cause I would be watching the nest.
they do seem to be outside alot
Now who is going where to do what
It's really nice outside, just muddy. 46° and partly sunny.
It's nice outside this morning...gotta let the kids run off some energy, I'm sure
Darn $%((# I hate the blogs Conflicting Edits
maybe one of us can volunteer to have a baby so we can go to the daycare center everyday....MEGAN, you are the youngest I volunteer you:)
Paula, you have mail:)
No don't leave
Poof anyhowEgg alone
OMG- I just fell out of my chair- no way....
Um, wouldn't it be easier for someone to just get a job at NCTC?
there you go, Megan, I highly recommend you:)
When I do get sound, it always sounds like a pig snorting.
Here to, Jo. Just what we need.
Oh WOW, Megan, I would have fell out of my chair too.
**GOOD MORNING****EVERYoNE**It looks like our pair have left the egg alone...at least temporarily. At least they are still expecting more eggs, or they would be incubating this one full time.Eagles are getting more active at the Channel Island nests. One in the PH nest a couple of minutes ago.C(°ٿ°)DJim
yeah, well, youngster I was going to volunteer you next:)
Kinda makes you wonder how a cam in the jungle of Ecuador or underwater in the Netherland Antilles has less problems and run smoother than one is a tree in West Virginia.
Eagle is back
Eagle is back.
That was almost a 10 min breakHow fast can an unhatched egg cool down?
BRS says.....Arrived in Denver, ColoradoJust waiting for late night appointment to deliver
I wouldn't worry, it is really warm out and it's tucked into all that fluff. They seem to be very capabale of taking care of their eggs.
I never worry about these two, they seem to have it together
I give up....not even trying the live feed any more today...don't need the frustration.
I hear ya, Paula..
I need to get something for lunchOnly had banana for breakfast..Need to be in emails afterwards soBBL
I been trying to get Sharon to have another one for a while, before her eggs dry up!!!!
OMG- Sharon, they are ganging up on us!!
Monday, February 2On January 23, we told you how we were starting to limit Lun Lun’s and Xi Lan’s access to the off-exhibit space during the day by giving them less off-exhibit den space. Well, the transition to being on exhibit full-time for young Xi Lan is moving along smoothly. Last week, we started giving Lun Lun and Xi Lan the dayroom with no access to off exhibit space for 45 minutes. We gradually increased the time in the dayroom, and over the weekend we expanded it to five hours. When Xi Lan is given access to the off-exhibit space after being in the dayroom exclusively, he seems to prefer the off-exhibit area. However, when he is on exhibit he has become comfortable enough in the area to curl up for short naps. It shouldn’t be long before he is totally comfortable in the dayroom and can spend the whole day out there. We will then have to start working on teaching him to shift, so that the dayroom can be cleaned throughout the day. This is a good time to come see Xi Lan. He is practicing climbing and seems to be learning something new each day. At this time of year it’s fairly quiet at the giant panda exhibit. So, beat the spring crowds and come see Xi Lan and the rest of our giant panda family!Kate RocaCarnivore Keeper IITHAT IS NICE, ATLANTA, BUT NOT ALL OF US CAN COME TO THE ZOO.....just more frustrating
I missed it somehow, but it looks like someone filled the hummer food pan in Equador.
That is exactly what I said awhile ago about this cam. One down yonder works perfectly!
Did somebody on this blog pray for patience??
Yep, I have had that hummer cam up for hours.
Suzanne saw them re-filling the feeder, with a big bucket
I must've been outside.
Eagle just flew in-what is that it brought??
What did they bring for lunch?
looks like a cold cut sub...hold the peppers
Good afternoon. Been lurking while doing alot of other puting!!LUNCHTIME in the nest....big something there.
eagle at CALTRAN
A fish, already half eaten? when she tears into it, you can see the gill separation.
I'd say filet-o-fish....
Worst snow storm im London in 20 yrs. 6" blizzard....wonder if Chrissy is getting the same thing?
Other eagle just flew back in.
OMG, Sissy....after everything she's been thru', we don't want her to stretch out her tummy!!!
My still cam shows 2 eagles(saved it)--one eating, but Live shows 1. No one sitting on egg at moment
There was a car on the hummer cam. That was pretty strange.
Well, yeah, now maybe wouldn't be the best time for Sharon to have a baby, but still.....
A car???!!There is one eagle in the nest eating, other flew out.
my live shows only one....you can go to Earthcam.com and go to London to see their snow, also interesting to watch the 24 hour archive during the storm
Time for lunch...no fishy for me!!
We are starting to get light precipitation in Bluefield.
You know, I would really hate for an eagle to look at me that way.
They definitely have a pretty intense stare.
The temp has dropped here 10 degrees in about 2 hours.
POOF on Still...
Eagle back in nest- onto egg.
I have, what I believe to be the last bunch of Margy's photos posted on Wandas Wishes. Then, when we get MM photo of Margy on the platform at the train station, she has a few photos to go along with that.
Now it is snowing here.
Live feed has disapeared:(
Sissy, saw on news awhile ago that snow was in TN & Ken. & moving E, so you must be getting that.
My live feed and sound are up at this moment.
Wow, that wind is a-whipping!
Just got my Live to come back on. Will Never Refresh Again! Can't turn that tab off when it's "not responding" w/out closing everything & have to start over.
Had my quickie lunch.. Looked better then our eagle couples'. Just saw an egg turning and then the wiggle wiggle and then pulling in of the fluff! Wind seems to be picking up.Suz had gone home for the day knowing that she may run into some snow up at her home in PA.. She hopes to see us tomorrow.
ok, got it back, wind is gusting about 18 mph.
QUESTION: How do you manage your REFRESHof the live cam?I had always hit F5 and had to wait quite some time for it to come back up -Just a few minutes ago I clicked into thelittle brown box on the left with our 3 bobble heads and the refresh was almost immediate.
Sharon - I see lots of traffic in Bluefield and some snow flakes..
I hit the refresh button on my browser...I am using IE
