Thank you Steve and all NCTC Folks I'll try to round up the others
Thanks Steve and Margy.Good morning everyone. A gorgous cool day in Alabama. Will really be nice this weekend with temps in the 60's. I'm sure Donnie knows about the wax story already.
BRS is on the move again. Heading ro Ohio.
Howdy all:) Thanks, Steve:)What just happened on our nest-was there a switch, or just a position change? anyone know, got too many screens up here..missed all the action.
That should be TO ohio. I have Larryitis. lol
Good morning all. Cold here in Baltimore. It was nice to see juvie's at BWO. Hope they are the ones from last year. Have a great day.
Sorry Megan. I missed it too.
That's alright, red. I have the cam up and I still missed exactly what happened. Working on another screen, made my own 'pop up cam' by minimizing cam page until it just fits into the corner of screeen, so I can still work and see it, maybe that'll help.
Egg roll- changed positions...
Good morning everyone. Balmy 7° in Bluefield this morning.
Thank you Steve for the new thread. Thanks for the call to come over Margy.Good Morning again Eagleland...You think so Red?
I has ask on other thread...Is anyone having a problem keeping NBG cam open??
Good Morning Everyone in Eagleland!Keep those eggs warm! If a 3rd is laid, hope it's later in the week when it gets warm.
Nest work around egg cup, pulled some fluff aside and turned around facing cam.
No problems with NBG cam Dana. Just getting seasick. lol
Red what link are you using?
Morning, all.Eagle looks all comfy, even in this cold weather...
Egg roll and position change....facing 2ish
Nature - If we get a 3rd egg, should be no later than tomorrow...

Gosh Norma. I thought you just got your computer fixed. Whats wrong now?
Hi Paula. Yes, I know eggs are usually 3 days apart--seems like with all that sitting and adding fluff hopefully they will be alright! ☺It seems that at Park every year when ospreys come back, they are later faced with awful weather including ice storms. Of course they haven't laid eggs yet. They just sit on nest & face the wind.
Morning, Norma!! Glad to see you back on the blog!

That link should open it up in Windows Media Player Wanda.
Norma, can you open your email program at all? And what did they say was wrong with your computer?
Good morning, everyone! I feel your pain with the temps, but it is 27 here already! Going to be 46 today.
Good morning all! Have been lurking while reading the paper. I was keeping a really close eye on OK. She was sitting in the nest for a long time. Finally she flew.....no egg yet, but it could be any time.You are most welcome, Wanda! LOL I don't know what happens to me when Jack is gone....I do not get sleepy. I stay up late, but do sleep good when I go to bed in the wee hours. I am so excited! Diet is working. I am loosing weight! Going to stick with it. Retirement and good eating did me in!
Wanda, what version of Windows Media player are you using. I have version 11 and have no problems with NBG.
Wow, Norma. Hope your lunch date is w/one of those 'puter techies!!! LOL ♥ ☺ ☺ ♥
Norma, my internet explorer freezes up all the time when I have our cam up, have to restart it a lot, so it might not be a problem with your computer on that one.
I've been able to get NBG up---using the WVEC link in My Faves from last year. A couple times when I first brought it up, it had the black screen, but has been OK now.
I am on Internet Explorer and I freeze up all the time as well. I think everyone is having problems with freezing up on this cam. The OK cam is not freezing.It is what it is! We are all learning how to deal with it and how to refresh!☺
RED YOU HAVE MAIL
I just heard a little spring like bird at Maine Cam, sounded like a Phoebe maybe, have to check my bird songs...GB owl in Colorado looks good this morning Hi again everyone, just passing through. Oh, Gobbler convention in PA
Which link Loretta for NBG?
but now I hear Eagles at Maine ☺
Fly in at Maine, one
NORMA, nice quiet day at the zoo yesterday....:)
real close up of eagle in Maine
Zooooooming in Maine - my pic is kinda washed out
could be the glare from the sun on the snow, Margy

OUR bird just did a peek and a wiggle, maybe I missed a switch?
Thank you, our lovely PM!
You're probably right about that MITS, the glare at Maine, almost looks like a negative exposure
No switch, just a wiggle and maybe egg roll.. Now-here's the other flying in, and now a switch!
Wow- you can hardly see him in all that fluff...
On the still cam we have an all white eagle in our nest.
I just noticed those flage at the top of the web page on eagle cam
happens in the bl*nk of an eye...
Dana, you have email.
Still no GH Owl in CSUB, no egg at CO GH Owl box, no egg in OK, no cam in Kent. :(
Good Late Morning - I sure slept late but I feel great! Love this retirement at timesLive Feed - I thought we had a beautiful ice bird sitting on our 2 eggs! I sure hope that sunshine come hot & heavy very soon! That fluff is their Down Comforter.
Both eagles at Norfolk.
ATLANTA UPDATE.....Wednesday, February 4Xi Lan has discovered leafeater biscuits! We feed the giant pandas leafeater biscuits daily, which contain vitamins, minerals and protein. In appearance, they resemble dog biscuits. We use them as training rewards and as a supplement to the bamboo. The pandas love them! Over the weekend, I saw Xi Lan pick up one of Lun Lun's biscuits and start chewing on it. He has been interested in them for a while, but this is the first time I have seen him pick one up. He gnawed on it for a couple of minutes until Lun Lun noticed that he had it. When she did, she took it right out of his mouth! I guess mother knows best, because Xi Lan is not ready to eat biscuits yet. I don’t think he ingested any of the biscuit, he just chewed on it; his teeth are still coming in, so he chews on everything he can get his mouth around. Pretty soon, though, Lun Lun will have some stiff competition for those biscuits! I remember when Mei Lan started eating biscuits. She ate all the ones she could find before Lun Lun could eat them.Heather Baker RobertsCarnivore Keeper II
Happy Valentine's Day Red - Love the avatarI need to read Lots of email to go through but justwanted to say Hello right up front.
I sure hope that NBG starts those eggs a comin'. They were sometimes ahead of us.
nice and calm at NBG today..
Eating fish at Norfolk (NBG)
Fun update, MITS - I think it is Liberty that plays so much with the fluff - do you think so Mema?
I thought the same thing, Jo, it would make sense they are alot further south.
Have you all noticed the format on Beakspeak this season. Hopefully it will help Jason keep us all updated with hisnew symbols! Don't forget to email them when new things happen at the nests. http://www.beakspeak.com/birdcams/
And I so pray that this year is easier on them than last!
I just encountered an uninvited guest: Blogger Cop ! I was going to say, I am watching the gobblers at Pix PA, see some snow in their beards, but no snowballs yet ! ☺
but they are leaving now, missed my chance at getting a picture. Megan, you saw the switch, is it Liberty that flew in?
Good morning everyone! It is freezing outside and inside the hospital today! I think I'm going to have icicles coming off my nose soon!
No kidding! I am reading comments & I am so thankful NORMA has returned to us! I have had my belly laugh to get me started this morning!NO OFFENSE SHARON but I just read that Norma called youBLUEFIELD BRUISER When you see me again I'll give you mycane to use on me & Norma will give you her's if need be! loLOVE ♥
I think it's Lib now, he looks way smaller sitting there now, ... but I'm guessing...
Margy I'm not sure which one of oureagles is the most Fluffy! I will pay some attention to that.
That sounds like a good name for a Roller Derby team-Bluefield Bruisers...
I wonder if last year goofed up the eagles at NBG for their egg laying timing. Peter from IWS wrote that eagles will typically lay eggs within the same time period each year, so maybe they are going to be a little later this year. I don't think they would go as late as the second batch. I also read that after a stressful year or event, eagles can take a year off of egg laying, like Kent and Maine last year. I sure hope that isn't the case with NBG. Just speculating, they are having HP, so I bet the year off won't be the case here.
I've been sort of noticing a pattern, but not sure of my eyeballs..about which bird is which sometimes. Danelle: cold in the hospital? What's up with that ?
I could never use a cane on you two, no matter what! :)megan, do you want to join the Bluefield Bruisers?
Size wise I think it is Lib also.
Hedgie will have a fit if she reads cold hospital ! ...speaking of which, Hedgie, where are you ?
good info, Deb.
NO - I do not want the wax, thanks anyway - too old for that stuff !
Been going thru lots of sites-saw Beakspeak has new look. When I came back to our nest, looks like a giant White bird!!! Sunshine I guess!Many have been talking about an OK eagle nest. I couldn't find it. I know last year an OK home page had a pic of 4 eggs & then cam was down I think.
Count me in, Sharon! I just might need new skates, tho....I've had the cam up in the corner of my screen all morning, I could tell a huge difference when the current eagle sat in the nest cup, he's down much further, he's smaller.
Thanks Eagle experts, far and wide, and Hi Deb Well, I need to drown some bubbles, see you all a little later.xo ♥
BRS, making a stop
Good Info DebI remember being told about taking a year off. When we lost our 3 - Lib & Belle had a little bit of time to redo but decided not to and took the season off. We were all very happy last season that the clutch of 3 arrived.
Hi Magpie, we are having trouble with our heat. It's terrible!
OK EAGLE CAM,
I haven't been able to get the OK cam up this a.m., yet
I'm not going to say OK
And Wanda disappeared!
Danelle...that is serious business, no heat in the hospital...hope it gets resolved very quickly, for the patients AND all the staff. xo
Dang blogger cop. He sure has been a pain lately, conflicting edits, a few other weird ones.I am off to Yankton today. Mary and I are going to look for swans and then I am going to help Mary with her Photoshop program.BBL
see ya, Deb
I have the OK nest open, it is currently empty.
Howdy those that have come in.Thanks Red had to remove the one I had in there (which is same). Re-typed it back in and got it. ty
Later Deb snap some swam pics
Hi Vicky, Carol and Sandra
Oh, Swans....Hope you find some, Deb,Have a great day....☺
BRS is across the river from Glo again. Maybe he's gonna take eagle pictures.
He told me he would if he saw any, Red:)
Dana, where did you see Vicky, Carol and Sandra?
BRS, back on the road again.
Red I don't ---- sometimes I just put that up. I did it a lot last season for Carol. She would then sometimes pop in for a "hi"...
OK Dana. I thought you were losing it. ha ha
lol that wouldn't probably take much Red lol lmbo
Red you have mail
Thx Helen & Deb for OK link. I must have deleted it last year. Turkeys were at PA Pix, lots of goldfinches at OK bird feeder & baby hummer is almost filling the nest!
Rolling those eggs and changed position...
time for lunch--yay!
Cam pic is really clear now
Hi gang. Been lurking. Not feeling too chatty today...sinuses are making my teeth ache.Margy, Christie is always complaining about the heat at Jefferson. SHe is always freezing...used a little heater when she was on nights, but now that she's on days don't know whether she can or not. SHe already has a cold. Mom's never stop worrying!!Red and Dana...I went back looking to see if I had missed Vicki, Carol, etc....LOL!Norma, see if you have Computer Geek or Computer Nerd service in your area...they come to the house!
Wasn't those tree coming into Sharpsburg beautiful that AnneMarie took?
Really bitter here..wind chill factors are probably STILL single digits from the way it felt when I let the dog out a few minutes ago.Funny update on Xi Lan, Mits!! He's going to give Lun a real run for her money.
The scenery pics Anne Marie took are good - she is a History Buff atheart!Lunch time in this nest!BBL
Time to go get my haircut later
Good afternoon dear ones, Back to the third egg, will it have to be laid by tomorrow (Friday) During the last 5 years, has there always been the three eggs? Just wondering mauley donna
Hi Donna - 2nd egg was 2/2 and the third one comes within 4 days.. So I'm thinking we have until 2/6 if we're going to have 3 again this season.
sunshine in Bluefield
Mt Washington weather conditions....Temperature -13.6°F Wind 36.0 mph Direction 312° (NW) Gust 48.3 mph Wind Chill -46.5°F Thursday 12:45 PM a tad chilly:)
Ok, back to work, time to go see some patients in ICU. BBL.
I heard a rumor that Xi Lan will be back on the cam next week...online!
I sure hope that RUMOR turns out to be TRUE. Sure do miss the little panda!
wouldn't that be nice.Speaking of Panda's. I think its time for my Panda nap. BBL
Chrissy has had a sadness...had to have her Scampy put to sleep today....his kidneys failed overnight. She is, needless to say, feeling very low.
I just saw the update from yesterday on Buddy Buddy of NBG Fame
We can send her lots of ecards showing our sympathy. We can help her get thru it. Thanks Lynn for informing us.
Have been doing laundry and cleaning a bathroom. More fun!JO....went to Wally World yesterday, saw purple Mardi Gras (how do you spell that?)beads! Thought of you and smiled.☺Hedgie....sorry you are feeling bad, Get well quick! I am feeling GREAT and want everyone to feel as good as I do!Back yard has been a riot this morning. I had a flock of cardinals playing in the stream. So pretty! Got the binoculars to watch, and spotted at the same time a red bellied wood pecker, blue jay, tit mouse, wrens, doves, and a mockingbird. My yard was hopping!
Hi, Dana - I saw your "Hi" to me. So, we're still at 2 eggs, right? It is still cold up here on this mountain. It's 12 degrees! Was 3 degrees when I got here this AM. Yes, Norma, we do have a lot of bats here in Pendleton County - because we have a lot of caves. Well, I gotta get back to work.
Jo....great article and video on NBG and Buddy. Last week the cam was aimed at a camera crew on the ground. Bet that was when they were filming that video. Thanks!Buddy, is special to me as we visited that nest, remember? I knew him when he was an egg! LOL
Both our nest
My purple beads are right here by the computer, Lolly! Yes they do bring asmile to my face.One or 2 great pics of you and also of Jack in the 1st Momster's album of Open House taken by Anne Marie.....

Eagle back on nest at OK. Going to go get some more things accomplished. I have been soooo lazy with Jack gone. Oh, well!!It is what it is!BBL
Also, tomorrow is Frank Beahan's birthday...not a very good one for them....Chrissy said they have spent over $300 on the vet since yesterday.
Chrissy just picked up my email card.Vets don't come cheap - Similar event here dealing with a feline.. Over $200spent and then still had to be put to sleep. But it is what it is! Chrissy's Scampy is now in a very happy place with no pain!
Egg adjustment, turned around facing cam.
Thanks, Lolly...I suspect I'll feel better when the weather warms up a bit! Congrats on losing weight...it's never easy!!
She picked up mine, too, Jo.

WHOA LOLLY!---Do you ever have your gardens on tour?---They are AWESOME!!----(i would need to do some 'lawn work' before I could invite you for a visit!!---ho!-----AND A CREW OF ABOUT 100 WORKERS!!!!---- ho!
Saw Wanda and the pretty new advatar in the comments this morning around 8:45 Where did she go? Hope all is well.
I know, Mema Jo. Wanda was on here talking about not being able to get the NBG cam and then she went poof!
The colder it is the faster the egg rolls
Yea, she really jumped back on them quickly. Only 22° here and windy, sun is in and out of the clouds as you can see on cam.
No Norma, you wouldn't...just put me to work. ☺ But, thank you for the nice words. I just came on to say that I saw where the OK nest is empty again...so I am going to head outside. While you guys are freezing it is 70 here today. We missed this last front! Anyway, it is just so nice outside. I am going to go mow. Really no grass to mow, but hey, it makes the yard look nice mulching the leaves, twigs, etc. So, see you later....Gators! BBIALW
MEGAN---Have you started planning for your gardens---bet that takes a lot of planning!!---Such beautiful fields of flowers!!!---and birds---
Working on it now, Norma:) Been ordering more seeds......
Hello Everyone, again...Miss Daisey called early this morning. Needed driving to the store, bank, dollar store, sheetz and K-Mart for a new black button up sweater..... Long day with Miss Daisey ! HeHe..I've been reading back over the day. No number 3 yet.
Hi DonnieSeems like this season the eggs are being laid late evening hours rather then in the daylight hours.Going to take a break - Keep those comments coming......BBL
well then we still have some time to watch and wait then.. I've got everything crossed I can think of.
Paula, where are the Hancock forum people getting their news about Atlanta's panda cam?
Egg roll, still see two, changed positions, facing cam again.
