Hi Steve. Thanks for the new thread. I will tell the others.
thanks, Shirley for the call over:)
She's a clean plater.
She sure is!Thanks for the new thread, Steve.
Can I have some more?
Eating lunch. I have to squeal and mantle to keep George from stealing my food. I think he likes this stuff from the Asian Wokery.
Thanks Steve! Palmer found the little spot of shade.
Must finish getting my tasks done before Suzi arrives. She has already asked off for the weekend of Oct. 23. She enjoyed the open house last year. So far, she has not gotten the okay to take off. I hope she does.
Palmer is still hanging out at the nest, I see. BBL.
Well wishing everyone a good weekend. For Dads a Happy Fathers day. Think I need to get some other things done for a wile now. Keep the sun a shining in your hearts.
Palmer at the 1 spot with wings slightly spread.Y7 back at LOL, think he has another fish. Mom face down with wings spread.
Finally back!!!! Verizon crashed---not just me, either!!!Waiting for company to arrive....any minute.
Nice little poop shoot by Miss Palmer.
Stronghunter, LOL! I have to do the same thing with Craig.I was only able to get on once yesterday for a minute. :( I showed Craig's Mom Paula's video of Palmer being greedy--of course she loved it.
I am back from working in my yard.Whew.It finally got too hot for me and now trying to get cooled down.My bro stopped by and helped tremendously. Showed me the new wheels he got for his hot rod. I think he should upgrade his computer instead so he can watch the eagles.
The reports about Isla are sad.
What nest is that with Isla?
Just read about Isla...so very sad, can't keep from crying.Jim, hope you got the buggy started!Shirley, hope Suzi gets the weekend off for Open House! Enjoy your crab dinner tonight!!!
The temperature on the OD cam says63 degrees.I don't think that's accurate.
The WE eaglets look a little like penguins.Probably because they are standing on the rocks with the ocean behind them. : )
The TH twins are both in view now. The one just flew in from their patio, which is on the left and out of site.
The small TH eaglet doesn't do any wing things that I have ever noticed. Hopefully, that is OK.
The AK loon looks alone on her nest.But you know she's not when that little chickie pops it's head out from under the wing. So cute.
The PH twins are where they are much of the time, on the left side of the nest like they are having a major conversation.
Palmer alone on her nest.BEagle alone on the blog.Son is cleaning his nest. Good thing.
I am in and out BEagleHere's the Loch of the Lowes nest Loch of Lowes nest cam
The link for their blog is on the same page.
Back from some traveling up the road.Really hot outside.Those rest stops on 70 W & 70E are to open June 23 at noon.
Thanks for the Loch of LowesPaula.It's sad though. She can't seem to get her feet under her.She lifts up but can't get up far enough to get her nest legs up under her.
One of the WE twins has nice white feathers streaking it's back too.
Okay, I was about ready to send out a missing persons alert on Susan, but she just called. I thought she was going to be here at 2, but she said she was planning to leave there at 2. However, it is after 3, and she just left. At least she is not lying in a ditch somewhere. Our children are always our children.
We are going to be very late for the baseball game if we make it at all. As hot as it is out there, I am probably better off on that one.
Yes, it is hot out there. The humidity is bad and that's why it's uncomfortable.Had to come in because of it.
The loon chick is dozing with it's head out from under the wing.
Not to worry, BEagle. Someone is always lurking nearby the blog.Cannot distinguish Isla now. Too well camouflaged or?Have lost the live cam again. Is Palmer still at the nest?Am reading a very many-paged report on serial homicide and falling asleep.Have drafted an email to dept. chair but want Darth to look at before clicking send.Shirley, if you are still around, please wear a hat of some sort or take a parasol.Think it was Kickngbird who mentioned Google Chrome. Googled it (lol). If I download it, how does it work with sites I have bookmarked? Do I have to re-bookmark? Remember, I'm technology challenged. Anyway, thank you for the suggestion. Off to try the live cam again or back to reading.BBL
Judie, Google Chrome seems to be different. It works by search engine. Just put in the address you want or I guess you can enter it like you would anything else on a search engine. Just put in the way you would Google anything. I use it sometimes for the cam. I use whichever of Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Google Chrome seems to be working at the time for me.
I have already gotten information about writing my syllabus for next fall, Judie. And you are reading crime stuff. Not much rest for the educators is there?
Off to mop a floor. Tried to call Suzi and tell her to go on to the game without taking the time to come here, but no answer. I think her phone might not be working properly.
She is using her boyfriend's old phone, doesn't see any need to have the newest phone out there as he does, but it does need to work.
Judie. Was trying to be humorous.I know I have lurked on occasion myself.My son says some of the browsers will ask you if you want to keep your old bookmarks. He just cannot remember if Chrome does.
Palmer is still here, lounging in the shady nest now.
y7 is feeding the ospreylets again....Mom barely moving.
Company gone. Good to see old friends, even if for short visit.Know that when I installed Firefox, it automatically copies my favs off IE into the Bookmarks section. Nice!Looks like poor Isla is still breathing. Shadows make it hard to see---and they are Zoomed in on the chicks and Y7 feeding them. Wish he'd feed Isla.
Happy Borthday to Glo's Elia! 5 yrs. big today!!
I take it Palmer has not made any trips today, right? Lazy girl!
Firefox copied my favorites into their bookmarks with one of them being a link to the favorites list. I can't get the Loch of Lowes nest on Firefox. I have to use Internet Explorer. Susan says that Rus and Rebecca are supposed to join us tonight.
Happy 5th Birthday to Elia Thanks, Lynn for that informationI watched Palmer for awhile this morning after work, went to check on Loch of the Lowe's as I usually do, often, read the sad reports, then checked Chrissy's email...internet went down here too, shortly thereafter....I was too sad about Isla anyway to post...She has been a remarkable Mom Osprey....praying for a miracle of recovery, with prayers for a peaceful ending if that is the answer insteadxo
So very grateful that Palmer seems to be doing just fine...eating well, and all thatafter a few days of unstated worry, this is a big relief glad you had that visit in Lynnhope the heat is not too stifling anywhere, lots of Vitamin K and D out there todaybest wishes for a good afternoon everyone
came home form work, slept, got up and put on a dress to go a funeral memorial, couldn't recheck the email with the location detail, because of the internet being down,found that I went to the wrong place and missed it altogether :(word is that Verizon is having problems with phone lines all over town here, I expect internet to go down again sooner or laterthink I need more sleep nowttfn xo
close up of Isla now, she is moving her head, is very weak
Magpie, I live in Martinsburg and my phone and internet have been acting up. Guess it's due to the impending switch to Frontier. Happy Birthday to Elia! I have 5-year old twin nieces. They are the light of my life. Who is Isla and how can I see her?
PammySue. Look at Paula's blog at 2:26 on this page.
I mean, Paula's post. The Loch of Lowes.
BEagle...ODC, never keeps TWC thing updated ....don't know why they bother to have it on the page....below is real up date from TWC 25443 page.Shepherdstown, WV (25443) WeatherUpdated: Jun 19, 2010, 4:45pm EDT Right NowPartly Cloudy91° FFeels Like: 92° FWind: From S at 7mph
PamIsla is an "elderly" female Osprey at a Scottish nest...there is posting about her situation on their link thereIt is very very difficult to watch, but I support their decision to let us share in their profound sorrow of what is happening Loch of the Lowe's Scotland, Osprey nest
Y7 is the male mate, new this year for this nest, two chicksY7 has brought in several meals today....
and Y7 is there now, once again
I was reading all your morning meal posts BEagle this morning, then checked Loch of the Lowe's - couldn't type a thing much after that
they are five hours ahead of us there...darkness is setting in...Pamfor some reason, I guess I thought you were in Winchester...wow Martinburg...that's neatI am in the very northern inside edge of the city limits here
Ospreys at Wildwatch seem to be doing nicely Wildwatch Washington State Osprey nest
lots of links on that Wildwatch site, including eagles,two juves and a parent in that nest now
Magpie and BEagle, I went to the Loch of the Lowes site and read about the female (and have the camera feed going). That is sad.I live in Martinsburg, but I am actually in Winchester right now. My boyfriend Craig lives here. His computer is slow, which is annoying. :/
PamHere is another Scottish site Loch Garten, Scotland three chicks hereMom is EJ, male is Odin
I know Margy. I was hesitant to go to the Loch because when they get helpless like that, we forget that it's nature and we can't do anything.
PammySue, have you tried an upgrade in your network provider?
Margy, after I texted you I found out that others were also having trouble! Sure seems strange that they can claim the transition will be seamless, and all of a sudden there's trouble. Heard about one person who lost connection and got a letter the same day saying that it was because of Frontier (this was in Inwood). Don't know all the details----Margy, it was Ike Faircloth (Larry's son, FF at Mt. Storm federal facility), but they got ticked off so cancelled phone and net and went with Comcast!
you can tell from their posts, BEagle, that they are very compassionate and passionate about what is going on...it is a choice, a tough one, to watch or not, we have had some tough things in the past at other nests in which the "caretakers" did not seem to have the same concern and dedication to their nest sitesjust my very humble opinion I guesswhich I hope no one minds that I express...we can share in their sadness and grief
and we can still surely pray for a miraculous recovery, that would be the very best answer to a prayer
What is that shadow near the Loon nest?Or is it just a bug on the cam.
meanwhile, Palmer is sitting prettyand that is surely a blessingI'm going to take some quiet time herexo
I have done all of the available upgrades for his computer. I think it is because of his security system. Right now all he has is the free version of AVG.
Anybody else having trouble with cam stopping again????
Hedgie....I did NOT get your text messageoh brother, not cell phone glitches too !just checked again, do not see it:(I would switch BACK to comcast if things disimprove...
I do not have live feed up, because, I cannot do anything much else when I do...
My cam is going good.Pam, I have AVG too, no problems here.Isla's eyes are closed, have been most of the day. She is mustering up some strength from somewhere to try and move.
How old is the computer, Pam?
Looks like Isla is trying to rally a bit...don't think she has much longer. I know how committed they are there...but don't understand why if they can retrieve her for necropsy, they can't rescue the chicks if Y7 doesn't care for them..........
His computer is only about a year old. It's a basic Dell. There may be a bunch of unnecessary stuff running too, but I don't really know how to address that. I am afraid of deleting something that is needed.
Y7 seems to have certainly risen to the occasion today....good job for a young Dad...Good Afternoon Eagle pals...see you later on probably (( hugs ♥ ))
Y7 is a fishing machine, I think he brought another one back. Mom trying to get up again.
I see what I assume is the father with a little fish.
no sound at that nest today for me, Loch of the Lowe'sguess that is a good thing...
The company that provides your network service may be slow.
Oh...I use AVG also! : )
BEagle, you may be right about the service. I think he has Comcast. I wish I knew more about the inner workings of computers. I see the Mom osprey trying to get up. It breaks my heart. I wish someone could help her.
I think Y7 will be fine with the chicks...I wish now they would retrieve Mom and give her some relief.
my live NCTC feed is good, but Palmer has not moved much in quite some time
Comcast internet should be fast...is it always slow? A year old computer should be zipping along.
Y7 is feeding again. He is doing a good job it seems. He's had to grow up quickly, hasn't he?
and now she moves, Palmer..good, guess I was getting worried
No problems with cam stopping. I have shut my system down a couple times today...just to refresh everything in it.My son says to shut it down every night so little danglers can clear out. I think he used the C-Cleaner on it a while ago.
Paula, the computer was sort of fast for a very short time. That's why I wonder if there are not things running that are unnecessary. Craig's cousin works on computers, so we may end up having him look at it.
Fly free, Lucky, fly!
There he goes!
Looks like it is getting dark in Scotland. Kinda wish the Dad would feed the Mom, but maybe that will just prolong her suffering . . .
Sometimes I need the danglers to clear out.Are you speaking of the eagle on the NCTC nest?
HokieJoe, you are seeing things, LOL
I just switched over to the NCTC cam. It looks like Palmer is still there, so I'm confused. Did she leave and come right back?
Hokiejoe...what eagle you saying just flew out?
Yes. Palmer is still on the nest. I think it's another eagle.
Good Saturday afternoon everyone. I think I've finally caught up and so sorry to hear of Isla's distress. I can't watch since I get too emotional after watching Koo last year. Also, what's with Hope's FB page? Could the improper posts be from teens with nothing else to do? This is the time of year when things go awry. Such a shame one (or more) bad apples spoil it for the good guys. Judy, I hope things work out in your best interest. Anyway, yesterday we had a salesman come to give us an estimate on a new furnace and he had to check everywhere. I wanted to hide. I was so ashamed, never mind the cost!!! The guys helped me clean up today since daughter and Max will be here tomorrow. Can't wait to see him.Before I forget - our local tv news and today's newspaper told us that at TMI (yes, THE Three Mile Island) has nests of eagles, osprey and peregrine falcons all in close proximity of each other. A very unusual situation to say the least! No eaglets this year since this is a young couple, but the falcons were banded this week I think. Gotta get up there soon with binoculars. It's only 15-20 minutes from here and it's close to Harrisburg International Airport(HIA).Maybe a field trip is in order??
Yeah, who is 'Lucky'?
Had a nice conversation with Rus. He and Rebecca are coming this evening. He said they will tell me about the California trip. Rebecca is working on an application to make a three-week humanitarian trip to Liberia. She is quite the traveler. Spent some time in Portugal awhile back.
I am confused about who Lucky might be, too.
Lucky is Joe's name for Palmer
I have got to get in a habit of previewing my posts.I should have said, What eagle are you saying just flew out?
Oh my, Manute Bol has died. He was that super tall former Washington Bullets (now Wizards) player that came from Africa and couldn't speak any English. 47 yrs. old. Died at UVA from a rare skin disease from a medicine her received in Africa.
Paula, that's what I thought. Palmer is lucky. :)
Oh, that's right. It was Lucky Palmer.
I need to take care of a few things. I shall return later. Awaiting the arrival of my children.I am wondering if the birds in the nest fledged today. After an adult flew out, I saw a little birdie face in the opening. And there have been a couple of weird bird happenings here today. Awhile ago a bird flew up to the door and looked in at me as if it thought I was interesting. A little later, a bird flew into the window. It seemed to be okay. I am still not sure what kind of birds they are.
Gee, Diann, so many species in such close proximity! Yeah, field trip sounds good! WOnder if they are attracted by the warmed TMI water the way manatee are to the nuclear plants in FL???
Lucky came back. He is that free Eagle on NCTC. You girls need to get a life. How could you name a bird before it is born? How about Debbieson? You all are so selfish that I'm sure Deb is rolling in her grave. Palmer is a surname only so; Fly Lucky Palmer, Fly! Go, boy, go!
Palmer just moved around for a poop shoot.She hasn't moved much in a while.
Shirley, glad that you are going to get the scoop!! Also nice that you will have the whole family together this evening!! Will they spend tomorrow with their dad?
Oh Mits. Thanks for the zip to update the temp. The OC weather is saying 87 degrees now.
We aren't selfish at all, Joe. Palmer can be a first name as well as a surname, and it is not gender specific, so regardless of whether the eaglet is a she or a he, the name is appropriate. Deb's sisters' are very glad that we named her that, and she is not rolling in her grave. And we all have great lives!
Only a guy would poop shoot off of the side!
I think Joe wants to see Palmer take off :)
Have you buried any children , Hedgie?
That Lucky Palmer is a guy! He told me!
I'm sure Deb Palmer was a wonderful lady! Child of God.
I thought Palmer WAS going to take off a short few minutes ago.
HOKIEJOE, I am not trying to be mean, but your comment at 6:13 was inappropiate. You didn't know Deb, we did.
No, Joe, thankfully not! Only many 4-legged "kids".
Palmer can be a first name as well as a surname,(no) and it is not gender specific, (yes it is)so regardless of whether the eaglet is a she or a he, the name is appropriate.(not a good opinion) Deb's sisters' are very glad that we named her that, and she is not rolling in her grave.( I think she is!)And we all have great lives! (I can tell!)Did Deb ask you to name a male eagle after her?
Joe, you are welcome to call the eaglet any name you desire, as are we.
This is a blog, isn't it?
and as an FYI, I grew up with a friend namer Palmer Allen, a male.
And...Arnold Palmer is a male.
Hey Shirley, did you go to Hunter's game? Are ya'll having crabs tonight???
Actually I think Palmer is playing it just right today...stay in the nest and be fed and relax in the shade!
Adult on the nest and brought something.
Parent just arrived with dinner!!
Of course, Palmer is keeping it out of sight.
Dinner is served!
Can't really see it either, but I am guessing fish by the way she is tearing into it!
That Palmer is such a Lucky guy!
It just might be a little squirrel or a rodent.
Palmer is having a hard time keeping her footing or else the food is still twitching.
Turtle shell certainly sounds empty and brittle!!! Don't get a talon caught in it, Palmer!
Oh, he is digging up bones!
Still can't see what dinner is, but she seems to have a hold of it now.
Is it a turtle, Lynn? Certainly could be by the way Palmer is tugging at it!
I think she was concerned about it skittering off the nest.
Gotta go skewer some food for the grill...bbialw
I was thinking a turtle too. It looked like it was round.
A spider gets it's web all over the lens here. In AK it's a mosquito!
BEagle, I caught a glimpse of it and also thought turtle.
HOKIE JOE...."I'm kind of a big deal, people know me""My sisters says if I get a million fans she will name her baby ...."***************************Is this YOU, Joe? I hope not!We enjoy interacting with new members, but not if you are here to harass us!
I think he's feeling unlucky. There is no meat in that shell! :)
Is that a new turtle shell next to the cam? or is that an old one?
Oh, I thought it was just one of the old shells getting underfoot!!Didn't see what she was eating!!
I am pretty sure it was Jim that first suggested Palmer is a female.
Hooray----a CHIP's officer prevented a duck and her brood from entering a freeway!!! They were safely removed to a safe location!!
It could have been a chipmunk.A simple evening snack.
Evening Everyone! Was reading & heard big squeals from Palmer. Adult brought in some tidbit I think, as P is nibbling. I thought I got their pics, but hit wrong button!News Flash from Park~~~A gentleman came in to office around 10 AM w/BIG camera and tripod.He got one picture of a JUVIE EAGLE on a branch of the nest tree before it flew away!!!!!We exchanged email addresses, but his 'puter just got the "blue Screen of death", so he needs to get new disc & reinstall everything!We knew there was something in the nest or the parents wouldn't have stayed there, but no one knows how many nor have any been seen til now.Just checked LOL---this is terrible about Isla & it seems problem was just detected this AM.I know nature should take it's course, but I can't stand NO intervention. I don't know the weather there, but even if Dad provides food for chicks, he won't protect them from sun by standing in the nest---Mom does that.We had a motherless nest & our naturalist built a small little roof cover which saved the one chick who later fledged.
Er..that was redundant!! Sorry, Shirley and Judie. You KNOW i know better!!
I just heard the little high pitched "bark" at the end of Palmer's squeal. It must be when she's inhaling.
Sounds like more food?
You "go" C..Lady.Nature...N. You can see what CHIPS did to protect the ducks and ducklings. Why can't they do that with ISLA?
Looks like turtle now.
Whatever dinner is, it's right next to the turtle shell.
There is something messing with the cam. Is that an adult?
Is that you, Wanda? So what! I'm sure I don't want to know you. I have an Aunt that was a clown. She is dead. Why are you threatening me? This is a blog! That bird does not belong to you. Maybe some day he will take a poop shot at you and ask you: "why can't you fly". Are you trying to tell me that the eaglet is not Lucky? That man Jim that suggested "Palmer" was not thinking. Why not Lucky Deb. Ode to Deb? Deb the most beautiful? Deb told me today that she is not very happy with you. Incoming!
LOL, there's that honking sound!
Please come back and feed me this turtle!
Loretta, glad to hear the eagles has at least one eaglet!
Yep, looks like a turtle. She is having to work a little for her dinner.
Cool, Loretta. Glad your pair has produced again!!!Greg is a good naturalist!!! I'm glad that it's dark there now. I think their weather is not too different from ours....maybe a few degrees cooler, but hot nonetheless.
Here we go with the puppy sounds again! LOL!
DOES look like she's working on the turtle---so maybe it was a new one!
Wow! Palmer is either get hoarse or his/her voice is changing. ;-)Barking no less.
Musta been a turtle. But it doesn't make sense. What happened to the other shells.
Sounded a little like the braying of a donkey.
BE, never thought of that. lol
Yes, Mamn, Hokie Joe, It is I, Wanda.As far as I am concerned, when you are addressing our VERY SPECIAL EAGLET on this BLOG...Her name is PALMER...when referred to ANYWHERE ELSE, you can call her whatever you wish. This Blog is for those who love eagles and each other, you do not seem to love either one.You do know that you can be BLOCKED, don't you? Change you attitude if you wish to stay here and be a part of this group.
Yea, Joe, you are getting boring and redundant. Why don't you go pick the dingleberries off your...
Block me and stay in your narrow minded world. Lucky is free and even Ben Franklin thinks Lucky is a free male!
Fly, Lucky, Fly!
Paula...you "go" girl.
Don't miss watching our Palmer working on her turtle - far more interesting
P.S. Wanda! I do think that it was very nice of you to put a funeral on your blog. I take photos of funerals all the time. People need that, seriously. regards,Joe
YES, MA'AM, WE MEAN WHAT WE SAY AND WE SAY WHAT WE MEAN :)
BEagle - good view now of how she has more white feathers than lots of juveniles
Now you are shouting. How immature is that? I think Lucky is going to eat the shell.
HOKIE JOE...for your information, I put my VERY SPECIAL Aunt's funeral on FB for friends and family members who couldn't attend the funeral...NOT for anyone's ENJOYMENT!
Palmer still working on dinner.
Wanda, You over react. I said that I sincerely thought it was very nice. I buried my son and don't have any photos.
Wanda you have mail
Is it eagle cane time?
Joe, you have hit this blog by mistake, there is another blog that would enjoy your comments. Just don't remember the name.Please find your missing blog.
KB it always fascinates me that the white feathers are not random but have a pattern to them.
Jo went out a while ago. I guess she has not yet returned.
