Palmer must be exhausted from her first couple days of flying, she is dozing in the nest♥Thanks for the new thread Steve, hope you are enjoying your trip!
Thank you Steve for the new Thread. Thank you Paula, for the cal over. Now I have to go back and get my post I just sent. LOL
good morning again everyone:)
Palmer can take her time about flying off. Work on her wing flapping and dozing.Thanks for the new thread Steve.
Good Morning Sunshine!!!! Actually it is cloudy here, but in my world with Palmer in the nest...the sun is shining bright. I am sooo happy to see her back. Was really worried she had injured herselfTurned on feed just in time. Saw Palmer sleeping like a baby. Then the rest of the action. Thought she was going to leave again. I don't understand......why is it, she has fledged...been out for two days and now seems to be having a hard time to fly out of nest again?Look she is sleeping again. Maybe she is just to tired.
I think she's had 3 breakfasts this morning, Ragdoll! I'd be ready for a nap too! Bet she hasn't laid down in two days, either. Probably feels good.
2 remaining chicks at Finney's nest being fed, they are looking good.
Thanks for the new thread Steve. Hope we get to see pictures of your trip.Paula you got that right.Lolly you said you seen Hope's facebook page. I sign up for it but it doesn't show on my fb page. Paula do you know what I can do???
good observation, Lynn, you may be right
Since Palmer has not left nest since she returned makes me wonder if maybe her first exit was accidental....she seems very hesitant when she's on the rim, and you would think that she would just take right off.
LOL, Mits, funny----makes it look like you read my mind before I posted!!! Were you on the cams or the trail yesterday?
Lynn, she's not an expert flyer yet! Sure to still be some hesitation, I just don't think she's ready to go anywhere yet today!Dana, they will only show up in news feed when they post something.
tee hee, read it in email 1st.....yes trails and cams yesterday.....was good to see the animals again.....was humid, but not too hot, and not too crowded
I think Palmer's just fine!! Typical young adult! Out testing her wings, comes home and gorges herself, sleeps into the crack of noon... then just watch, she'll be off again. Then we'll be waiting again, wondering when we'll get to see her next. But it's so great to get to watch her now while we can.:)
Dana, go to your profile page, then info, under likes, should be the link for it.
What a plotzed-out eaglet!!Maybe just laying low because of the wind.
Good that you got to do both, Mits! Did it storm at all? Bet the animals love it when it rains!
not a drop, Lynn....was kinda hoping for a downpour, but nothing:), disappointed sloth bears did not want to come out, but all the other animals were out on the trail...
Hedgie. We have the same thoughts.I felt Palmer was a little early flying off but I am still new to it all.
KB. I like your teenager resume.
Thanks for your prayers and good well wishes. My flu has moved on it seems, feeling pretty good now.
feeding time at BWO.
Good Good Morning! I really didn't think that I would see Palmer this morning and when I opened the cam I was very very happy no matter what the reason she is still there! They may have canceled Fishing School today...Thanks for the new thread and sure hope your enjoying your trip be itbusiness or pleasure.
HOPE PALMER STAYS FOR A DAY OR SO!Going to the church to make brownies for COFFEE BREAK at the WV south bound Rest Area. Stop by and visit and we will give you a hot dog, pop corn, coffee and 2 brownies:) The Capt. and I will be there from 6am til 10am. Yaaaawwwn:)
Fri, Sat. and Sunday (Sunday is our day). Might just stay all night in the Eagle Epress so that we will already be there, come 6am!
I see BWO Lisa's news update about the tractor question you asked her the other day. BWE - they have been coming back to their nest quite often.
Tummy is full. Nest bed is so comfy. Mom and dad are watching over and probably planning lunch now. Its all good :-).
yes BWE eaglets have come back alot to the nest...Lisa always answers your questions, she is great:)
Wanda - you and Gene are really something else by giving so willingly of your time to others. Where exactly in the WV South location? What route?
Glo, you live near where my nephew goes to school - I think when he comes home he collapses into bed there with that same sort of attitude.:)
Don't always get questions answered from people as busy as Lisa must be. She is great! Jo, LOL...I will check and see if Eagle School is closed when I ride by shortly;)Have a great day♥
The whiny buzz is there so I'm not sure, but I think Palmer may have sneezed
Jo, it's right after coming into WV from MD on 81. Just "our" side of the bridge!
Sounds like a fun service, Wanda......but be careful and keep EE locked up. Lots of thefts at that rest-stop.....some assaults, too.
I think it is the one closest to Winchester. I have to check and make sure! DUH!!
Both parents just flew into the nest to check on Phoenix...... Beautiful and careful touch downs by them.
That's one thing about the 95 corridor down south-----when I used to make the drive to see mom----there were always state troopers at the rest-stops! Made me feel much safer. States implemented that policy after several murders and assaults, mostly on foreigners, if I remember correctly.
yes, Wanda, and I believe Lisa actually has a full time job someplace else, so she goes above and beyond for the cam watchers.
We have 2 "protectors"...one for each of us. Yes, we double lock our doors. Have run into some weirdos over the many years we have traveled. Weirdest one was out west. Tell you about it sometime. Gots to go...
BEagle do you have the Hornby's nest on now. I know you watch them a lot. AND so glad the virus has left you.Thanks Hedgie and Wanda for the info
Going West & East on 70 up on South Mountain there are 2 new elaborate looking facilities which have taken forever to construct. When they open I intend to go up and check them out
eaglet resting at BWE now:)
Good morning! I see Lisa posted a link to my updated photos. I think this one is my favorite:Eagle and Fish
Was that a flounder, Bob?
Was out on the deck, with camera in hand....turned and there was a squirrel behind me, 4 ft. away! Think we startled each other equally-----but I got pic! Will post to blog later.
Hedgie it would have to be the rest stop you listed because the other one south is across the WV line. It is a Virginia rest stop.Hay I'm close to that rest stop Wanda. I love brownies might just have to drive there. Will have to see about me and meds tomorrow. Maybe Saturday hold a brownie for me lol
Poop ShootIs it take off time.
Nevermind, I see in your other pics that is wasn't, but it sure was a whopper!
Wanda, that would be northbound!
Good question Paula. I think it was too big for a flounder. They had trouble flying with it because it was so big. Maybe a carp.
Jo, I've been dying to stop at the new rest stops too! Guess the Spring Opening will now be Summer Opening....it's taking forever!Bob, great pictures!!!!
Palmer is up from her nap :)
I'm going to ask Steve if he can tell what kind of fish it is!Heading out again...
Nice poop shoot just now. Perhaps getting ready to take off?
Palmer is awake and standing at 1sh to 2sh spot.
Hope we see where Palmer's launch pad is on the nest........Looking upward - I guess mom and dadare just as tired as she was.....
The winds will take Palmer high high uptoday.........
Bob, that's one of the best of the best!!!Dana, I would think that Wanda's group is doing WV rest-stops. The one in VA WAS closed with their budget cuts, but new governor was re-opening all; don't know whether it's happened yet or not.The northbound one is just on our side of the WV/VA line.
I don't get why they are constructing new rest stops, when they just closed a bunch!
Paula I went to my profile page. There were other links there but no Hope's link????
OH, Jo, are those where they had the previous ones?
Maybe refresh your page, Dana, or logout and back in again.
I like that pic too Bob, Looks like the fish was looking at him, although I'm sure it was dead by then!
I just realized that the whiny buzz seems to get worse when the sun gets bright. I think the cam is solar powered, right? Maybe something can be adjusted?
Goodbye all of you Eaglet Momsters. It was nice visiting you guys. Take care of each other. I'm glad I found you for I would never have know that Lucky was a she named Palmer. Fly free Palmer and think of Deb all the days of your life. Peace and love!
I'd like to hang around until Palmer leaves but I have to go - have a great day, everyone.When you do decide to take off again, Palmer, you go girl!
Yes Paula - same locationI think Palmer has her head bowed asking for God's Speed......That 1:00 to 2:00 position seems to be her favorite. That is where she flew into the nest yesterday. Don't want to miss the fly out..Bob I will be looking at your photos soon.
Hi Bob!! Great pictures. That was a BIB fish. Thank you for the pics.
Up and looking out!
no link: Paula and Lolly I got it figured out. I got Lily and Hope's fb page now.
There went another poop shot!
ROFL That is a launch pad, Palmer!
Email reply I received from Randy Robinson...Thanks Jo ! Yes, nice to see Eaglet back on the nest.Saw him eating something this am.Hard to believe he/she was an egg in the snow just a few months ago !! Cheers,Randy
Hope was a "no show" for the morning feeding. We left some food in case she comes by later. -- SM
Hedgie, You said a day or two ago...THE WAX Story is on your My Cancer Blog...I can't find either.OH Good, Palmer is resting again. I am sure she and parents need the rest.Welcome Debs, Hokiejoe and Pammysue. The people here as sooo nice. (smile)OH Lolly, I pray for you ad Annie again. I hope all will turn out well at the vets.
Hello Hokiejoe, I am glad to see you are back to check things out!
Bob, Those photos are awesome. I especially like 35&36, 41-44 and 68!
Well I don't think she is going to leave the comforts of the nest anyways soon.
Here I go again...I meant BIG fish not BIB fish. sorry lol
Hokiejoe, hope you aren't leaving us forever!Palmer is resting again
Jo, can you send me Randy's email address?
Yes, Randy, BUT......has anyone there been WATCHING and LOOKING for Palmer when she was off nest?? Any idea where she was then??
For any of you that didn't witness Palmer's return to the nest.....PammySue's video of Palmer
Guess what? I think my hubby is getting hooked. While I was gone yesterday "HE" had the live feed up. Saw the whole "Return of Palmer". Was telling me about it just now. HeeeHeee!!! I love it.
You have mail Paula
That is my question too Hedgie!
Another Dadster bites the nest! Love it Deb.......
This is the sneeziest bird!!
Is that what that sound was? I thought a parent was landing.. lol
JO, I put up a longer version of that as well...it's on the EM blog.And thanks for the email.
Deb, the blog is Lung Cancer Survivors/Inspire (formerly Lung Cancer Alliance). Too hard to try to find old posts, so when I get on PC later, I'll send you the WAX story as an attachment--Sharon sent it to us a long time ago!
Yesterday was a great day with my daughter. Julie's lucky enough to be a stay at home mom. We spend many days in the summers playing. Yesterday was the kick off day of my being out of school. Lunch/shopping --then "Oh My" it's dinner time. hahaha We got home at 10:45. How do I get to look at the Eagle Nest Album?
Ragdoll, it's in the photos section of the group
Mema Jo,You are not old enough to be my mom. I felt like you did not want me in this ladies chat room anyhow. :)
Hello out there. I was up half the night. I think I just got so excited when Palmer came back . . .I was very surprised that she is still in the nest. Poor baby must be so tired. Laying in the warm sun with a full belly--now that's the life.
Ragdoll, glad Hubby saw it and could relay it to you! That's too funny!
Joe, we love having anyone and everyone here....male or female!
Hokiejoe you are more than welcome here anytime.. Sorry about the impression I gave you.....
Paula - your video is fantastic.. It captures so much detail. You probably mentioned it on the earlier thread but I didn't even go there yet.
Hi Joe, glad your back. Didn't get to greet you before. All genders are welcome to this nest. (smile)
Taking a breakBBILW
This isn't all ladies HokieJoe. We have some men on here too. Everybody is welcome.
Jo..."....bites the nest" That is cute.
Guys may not be able to get in a word with all the yakkity yak.
Paula, I just watched your video. Thank you so much for that. You got all the interaction between Palmer and Liberty. I can't wait to show it to Craig. :)
Wind is really blowing again at nest AND here! Beautiful day out there.
I think an adult just flew over. Perked Palmer up.
Palmer is letting folks know that it's lunchtime!!
A nice stretch . . .
Okay Baby Girl we hear you......
She's going for a lift off!She keeps getting tangled.
Playing hovercraft...er---make that hoverbird!
Look at that beautiful shadow when she jumps up.
She needs to figure out how to handle her talons.
It's not at all windy here in the valley I sure hope Palmer goeswith the wind and not against it ifshe decides to go........
Well, here's an article full of BS...IMHO. Robyn posted on FB.No Best Friends Allowed?
mixed feelings....want to see her fly...but I am selfish and want her to keep resting. I think she needs to practice more. Do you think her fledge was premature? I really don't know enough about this. I have only witnessed Hidey's actions last year.
Was that a sneeze?
I don't think Palmer's fledge was premature... She was 12 weeks oldand the way she cam into the nest on her return - I think she is good to go. We just need to forget about the Pine tree Crash ! That was just a learning lesson for her to Stick to the Sycamores!
Palmer is laying on the launch pad looking over the edge...left wing is flapping around :)
I don't think her flight was premature either...and I'm sure she is enjoying laying in the nest! She probably hasn't done that in 2 days. The BWE eaglets still lay in the nest, too :)
Thanks Mema Jo for the info. I think I am trying to Mommmy Cottle her. I need to "let go" LOL
vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvGOOD morning,aLL ! !vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvC(°ٿ°)D Jim
More sneezes? Sounds like a horse or deer snorting!
Good afternoon, Jim!! How's life on the west coast??
She is at the launch pad.Then any flight would not be premature. She did branch already.It must be determination.All eaglets must move out differently. It seems that some of the other eaglets branch awhile before take off.Each eaglet has their own story.Just thinking out loud.
My son just fixed me a burger.He's the sweetest.
He said I put a lot of pickles on it.
The temperature says 73 degrees at the nest. That's nice.
Well, Hedgie...still morning here in So Cal. 70° already, although it looks and feels cooler than that yet; rising to near 80° later.The U.S. Open Golf Tournament is starting this morning at the famous Pebble Beach course up north near Monterey. It should be a great one... Beautiful day.C(°ٿ°)DJim
Palmer is just 'lovin' life'
Dill pickles or sweet pickles, BEagle?
Got my mouth watering now for a burger with mustard and dill pickles!
BEagle - your son made a very nice gesture of love! Pickles or not!
Mustard, Pickles and a slice of onion!Didn't do the onion this time...not till the tummy gets totally back.
Feeding BWO osprey, boy have they gotten big!
With our eagle - I don't think I can get wrapped up in the golf game...Maybe later near the end of the competition......
Heading out for a burger!
Enjoy that burger Paula.I got back at my son. I said "and that's a lot of burger."He used two hamburger patties on his.
Looking at Norfolk, and they have something I've never seen before. One of the eaglets is flaking out in the crotch of another tree...not the nest tree...C(°ٿ°)D Jim
Jim Don't miss Bob's new photosBob Those new photos are justout-of-this-world! Many many of them could be contest winners. The flowers, butterflies, red-winged blackbird, osprey and the eagles! So much variety that you really had a full beautiful day of it! Once again as always, Thanks for Sharing!
Well, I can see now that I am out of school, I am gonna have to use self control. I have been on this computer since I got up this morning.Time to get some stuff done around here. I have been using the excuse that I am always at work. Can't use that now. Be Back later. Enjoy the afternoon.
Was that the sneeze sound I just heard?
Check out the Duke nest.Both eagles have branched and the cam has a distance view. It's pretty there.http://www.ustream.tv/channel/eagle-cam
Unfortunately, Craig and I are headed to his Mom's, which is right outside of Baltimore. Going over to help her do some stuff around the house. That means I can't watch Palmer all day. :( Ragdoll, I know what you mean by self control--sometimes I am on this computer entirely too long. OK, I am protesting loudly as I tear myself away from the live feed . . .Enjoy this beautiful day all.
Well, finished with the yard. Need to go clean up. Annie goes to the vet at 3. She is limping worse than she did with the other paw. Strange.?????So surprised to see Palmer still in the nest. He is happy to be home, I do believe.Dana, sorry I was not in to help you. But, you have the Lily fb page now?Off to clean up. The yard looks great. Come on over!!!! How I wish!BBL
Pam, tell Craig I said to behave himself! :)
Yes we see you Palmer
Thought she was gone that time, little fooler!
Whoa. The Duke nest is swaying. Buurrrrppp.
Palmer flapping and jumping after a poop shoot. Wonder if she will take off???
Palmer is playing with your turtle shell, Jo.
Palmer up again.
Mema Jo, love you!
Palmer was just all over the place and now settled back down again.
Messing with the turtle shell, is there still something in there?
I see that Lolly Maybe she'll throw that shell down over by the barn!Love you too Eagle Eye!
LOL Guess lots of you saw Palmers latest antics. So glad we can spend soem good time enjoying here. Guess she is guarding that shell fo rMeMa Jo :-) I thought maybe she wanted to take it with her
Yes I agree Glo - this is very enjoyable and she sure lets you know when she is about to do something!Love her squeals!
I think Palmer is saying that it took her 2 days to get back in that nest, no way she is going to leave again yet.
Well I did get all that mow mow done yesterday but I need to go out and trim now. I really hope she is still here when I come back. I am so enjoying watching her today.
There you go Jim it just took off from the branch it was sitting on at Norfolk. Tuesday they were showing one sitting on a branch.
Hi Glo when Palmer was exercing those wings I heard her hit the turtle shell.
I think maybe she is wishing it could make a nice soft pillow. OK out to trim :-(
Interesting, JimLooks like a 2 turtle shell pillow! Got that big ol' feetsie sticking out!
Haven't gone for lunch yet! I'm afraid to leave and I'll miss the take off. Thougth for sure she was a goner after the jettison (poop shoot) but it was only a test flight.Great pics as usual Bob!Hi to the newcomers. Hope you stick around and post often. I usually read more than I post, but this is a great bunch of people.Dana, I feel for you. I have the same condition. Take care.Glad to see the update on little Hope. Sure do miss that little furball.Guess I better eat something before I wither away - hahahahabbl
BEagle I think you started a small epidemic. A burger sounded so good. Since I couldn't drive out to get one. I fixed myself a nice burger. Thanks for the help on what to have for lunch ( : lol
Dana.It's my pleasure to assist when it comes to food. : )
Palmer was dozing in middle of nest wit a turtleshell pillow when I turned cam on now. Then she squaled a little and stood up.Don't open those wings w/the wind gusts!!!
Did someone say hamburger??? I almost never eat them anymore, but was starving when I left dentist. Drove in to a BK & ordered a bacon 'burger!!(they have an Oreo shake, too!!!)
Palmer up and looking off the right side of the nest
LOL, you really started something BEagle!
Posted the 2 turtle shell pillow video on the EM blog :)
Eaglet at BWE...Palmer still in the shade on the launchpad
Bet Lib and Belle are glad Palmer is staying put for awhile!
Check out the poop shoot ring around the nest at BWO, LOL
Thanks for that video - that's a keeper Paula.
Remember that we saw Belle under the nest - I think that is where Palmer is looking........
Wow! My cam has been running for 16 hours:35seconds! Must take a little break. bbl
What if I say Frosty?(The Oreo shake reminded me of a Frosty.)
I found the BWO once. Seem to have lost it.
I have son/family coming for dinner - a chili dinner. Be here in about 2 hours.. I need to do some things &BBILWHope if Palmer leaves she screams first.....
I am clean, and refreshed. ☺ Yard work in the heat takes it out of you. Loading Annie into her carrier soon and off to the vet. She did come into the bathroom and asked to be held. That is good, that is routine and normal. ☺Have been watching Palmer. LOL Wonder what he is "thinking." I guess he is just so happy to be home.BBL
OK, back again. I see Lucky Palmer is going to be one of those kids who won't get a job and will be living at home til age 34. LOL!Went to see my friend Tracey who is working at a local nature center. I got to pet an opossum and a screech owl, got up close and personal with a red tailed hawk and a barred owl! AND...they have all kinds of native frogs and stuff in cool display environments, and they have and opening for something and it's going to be DINKY the Tadpole!!! They don't have any wood frogs yet....poor Dinky, the teeniest of the tadpoles still waiting for his legs to grow. He'll have a safe home where he won't get eaten 5 minutes after we release him!
Wonder if our birds will have dinner at home like Mema Jo!!??
Mema Jo. You are just way too funny.I know I would scream if I were about to jump out of a nest.
Oh Loretta an Oreo shake that must have that must have tasted GOOD!BEagle a frosty sounds good too but don't have a Wendy's except on other end of town.Although I do have a BK right up the street. BUT I CAN'T DRIVE TODAY !!! lol
Peeking back in as I pass byBlackWater Osprey Nest Cam - Eagle cam was messing up
Palmer just movd to 11 o'clock. Nope time for wing exercising again.
Lots of flapping hops across the nest. "Wish these stupid sticks would get out of the runway!"
Looking out launch pad side of nest. Flapping those wings.
Oh no - don't go until you are really readyJust jump And flap all over your nestReally needs to learn how to curl those talons under!!!!!
I think she almost fell out of nest that time.My still cam is nice and light/bright with greenery.My live cam is dark.
I think Palmer is saying Hey I am ready to eat again and if you don't deliver food I am going to jump and you will have to chase me all of the countryside for another two days.
Now that's a thought, GloBBILW
