Hello More Eagle Pals

and Hello Eagles

Yes, JudyE spinning arrow often for me here at work

Linda said...

Good Morning! Nice to see both eagles in the nest. They sure are looking around a lot, though!

JudyE said...

ow at ford and see eagle still in nest

stronghunter said...

Good that eagles are tough. That nest looks like a cold spot today.

magpie said...

Oh Shep
Belle might be giving you some
opportunity here

JudyE said...

beaking

stronghunter said...

I am having lots of spinning arrow issues.

JudyE said...

hey they finally doing some nesstoration looks like It will take a little over a hour for by brake and powersteering flush so here I sit

Lolly said...

GOOD MORNING! Well, I just about chocked on my coffee.....my first time to see Belle and Shep!!!!!!!

One happy camper here!!! Wahoooo! I do keep getting the circle thing...that is irritating!

stronghunter said...

Flugg rearrangement.

JudyE said...

so glad others are having spinning arrorw
funny thing is we got a new camera but keep the arror huh

JudyE said...

i really don'tlike this small laptop can't get but one two windows open can't get the still on it to small to grap pic poof BELLE

Linda said...

Me, too, LOLLY! I just realized my coffee was getting cold because I was engrossed in the screen.....

POOF BELLE!

stronghunter said...

Poof Belle.

JudyE said...

It is a misserable misty cold rain out I checked my rain guage maybe about a half inch so far

JudyE said...

belle is back with stick

JudyE said...

beaking

stronghunter said...

So maybe spinning arrow is OC issue, not our computers.

Belle has returned.

JudyE said...

both doing nestoration one at 12 and the other a 6

JudyE said...

Belle is at 6 Shep at 12 he is picking at rail

JudyE said...

I think the arrow is like a buffering issue maybe

stronghunter said...

Still frosty outdoors here. BRR. Want to go tend to birdfeeder and put out something for the squirrels, but want it to be a little warmer.

Already went out for firewood and started a fire in fireplace. Got a houseful of smoke, but got the fire going.

stronghunter said...

Maybe, Judy.

magpie said...

You are GLAD? we have spinning arrows...
JudyE!

I have the problem more at work than at home...

okay, speaking of work
I am elbow deep in trying to make dough
Enough out of me talk wise
I'll watch but be silent
xoxo

magpie said...

old trick from before,
I hit pause then play again

JudyE said...

I am so surprised they are in the nest this long and so happy

Judie said...

Timing of the spinning arrow seems to be about 5 seconds - maybe it's a 5 second refresh by OC?

So nice to see both our eagles at the same time.

Glad the electrician has been and gone Shirley. Also really nice that Will offered to pay the bill.

JudyE said...

I meant I am just glad it not my puter and others have the arow think it may have been just meeee

Lolly said...

Heading to Denton soon. Going in Jack's truck to help move things. Supposedly Joey had scheduled movers for the big items yesterday. Well, he says they mixed up and did not have them scheduled but said they could do it today. But, also he had not gotten a price and when they quoted a price...he cancelled as it was too high. He has also not searched for another mover. Therefore, Laurel has moved but there is no bed in their bedroom, no refrigerator, and no washer and dryer. When I left last night Joey was gone, supposedly moving one of the two refrigerators by himself. Grrrrr! There is a dresser and a bookcase we can move. Boys have their beds and Laurel has been sleeping on Jacob's trundle bed, Joey in a recliner. At the same time Joey has made sure that the TV's were moved, and the company come and hook of computers, phones and TV's. He has got to get his priorities straight!!!! Yesterday, I was moving a heavy box, Joey was "chatting" with the cable guy...Joey ignored me, the cable guy opened the door for me.
Grrrrr! The night before I asked Joey to remove some paint supplies from the kitchen. We were trying to clear the kitchen to be able to eat. He put two cans in a box I supplied, then turned the job over to an 8 year old, who dumped items into the box and then the box did not get moved...until Jack did it. Another time I walked into the living area and he is in his recliner, feet up, and readding!" and his reply was "I know when to quit." Well, if Laurel and I had quit he would not have had a cleared off kitchen table and a meal!!!!

Please excuse my venting!!!!

stronghunter said...

Good morning, Judie.

Yes, nice to have someone help with the bills.

I do hope that Will and Kathryn might be able to install the ceiling fan. I once installed a four-way light switch and a bathroom light strip. If I can do that, my children should be able to do a ceiling fan.

magpie said...

but that does not always work
obviously,
pause play pause play

JudyE said...

I wonder if Steve would know what the spinning ARROW IS if he reads the blog maybe he will answer I saw he put on facebook that the eagles were in the nest when they landed at 8ish

stronghunter said...

Electrician shared a few pointers. He is very nice. An older gentleman--I think a West VA native.

JudyE said...

I opened a tab in this window for the still cam and figured that would work I grabbed a picture too but I just don't have the Momster album set in my favorete at this puter will have to wait till I get home

JudyE said...

celing fans are easy I think

stronghunter said...

Eagle chirp.

JudyE said...

I installled all my fans in this house as well as the apts that I lived in before I bought this house

Lolly said...

I am off....hate to leave two eagles in our nest, but gotta go!

Have a great day!

stronghunter said...

Just remember my ex trying to install one. I finally suggested an electrician, and he was happy to agree.

But I later learned he was not as smart as I thought he was.

JudyE said...

They both are in each corner with back to each other they act as if they are mad LOL

JudyE said...

MY X is the same way Boy was he surprised when he knew I could install them Angie asked me to go over to his house and put oneup he had for two years

JudyE said...

so happy to have them in the nest that way I have somethingto do while I sit here and wait for work on truck I think I am finally getting use to this lap top key board not as many oopses

magpie said...

Lolly!
I am sending some of my Spirit
along with you....
♥♥

stronghunter said...

I just remember the wires sticking out of the ceiling with little pieces of tape on them. He looked pretty nervous, so I offered to call an electrician.

I expect the 4-way switch was at least as complicated. That was after he left, and I did not want to pay an electrician.

JudyE said...

I love it that they have a desk to sit at here with a plug too
I want to go out and look at nest but I don't know if I should leave everything on desk
Me not a trusting person I am

JudyE said...

JO AND PAULA do we know if there is going to be some kind of open house this year?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

JudyE said...

funny funny I am sitting here talkingto 8 peeps about the eagles and a the tower out back with the eagle nest and me wanting to see what was in it and a Ladder truck pulls up and one of the guys say hey there is a truck go use it to see and then the ford guys walks in and i asked if i could use the truck and he says well the keys are in it What would he have done if I went to the truck lolol

JudyE said...

then I told him that I was serious and he then said I am sorry but I am not bummer LOL

JudyE said...

they both seem to be looking at something

Mema Jo said...

Wowser They waited for me this morning

Thanks to the Royal couple - my eagle fix is right on

Good morning Thanks Steve ♥

JudyE said...

I went looking for Mary the gal that is handling the cam on the nest here for next year and she isn't here today I told them nest year I will be watching their nest toooo

Mema Jo said...

Poof Poof

JudyE said...

they did bring in some fresh flugg yo can seein the MT nest

JudyE said...

that was a long visit a little after 8 is when then landed

JudyE said...

now that they are gone I think I will venture out in to the cold and wet day and see if I can see the eagles

Mema Jo said...

Open House No, there will not be one this year - Insufficient funds
However, Steve said there would be an Earth Day where the public is invited - That should be in April

Perhaps we could work a Nest Visit in at that time. This information came from Steve the day I went over for lunch and visited the Gift shop.

JudyE said...

just went out and I can see the eagle in the nest looks like she is feeding hard to tell

Mema Jo said...

I can live with that small black arrow
The cam picture is so great that I can just overlook it. Like most of you I think it is some sort of a refresher.

Lori said...

I think April sounds GREAT for another Non Open House Momster gathering!

Bird Girl said...

Good morning! I see our two eagles were at the nest this am...I wonder when Belle will get around to laying eggs??

Judie said...

Shirley, made me chuckle. Who turned out to not be as smart as you thought? Husband or electrician? Well, I know the answer.

Judie said...

The arrow is not a problem for me. I'm just so happy to have such a beautiful picture and to have seen both eagles for such a long time this morning.

Shirley, just make sure the mounting for the fan is attached to a beam or something really solid otherwise spinning blades will loosen the fan - capow!

Off to have lunch with a girlfriend.

Bye

magpie said...

Yep
I should have added a long time ago:

I ain't complaining !!

So glad the Royal Couple waited for your Mema Jo !!!

magpie said...

Hi Birdie !!

traditionally, this egg-laying has
occurred late January, early Feb
but the much more smarter Eagle Trackers will add in the correct and detailed info

magpie said...

Heck there was a time I could not even GET live feed at home...
Jo's ED helped out on with that, and others too....
and ED helped with other things too

Bird Girl said...

Magpie, yes I remember I'm just anxious! Savannah Eagles have two already.

I know our eagles' eggs hatch around mid-March, I just am anticipating them!

:D

JudyE said...

Back home once again work done on truck

NCSuzan said...

Good Morning everyone.

Nice catfish at Florida nest!
Catfish

NCSuzan said...

Lolly, in my son-in-law's Christmas stocking was a little book, "What Every Husband Should Know". Wonder who stuffed it in there?

JudyE said...

she seems to be surronded by fish at the Fl nest they have almost 10thousand viewers right now

JudyE said...

SANTA of course who else LOL

JudyE said...

I am so cold I am thinking about turning on my heat I am a big WIMP

magpie said...

Oh my Suzan, I'll say Fish

JudyE said...

Harriett seems to be having a time keeping the bobbley heads under her she has to keep tucking them back in

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

I hope it is not permanant I don't like it I typed over on the new look and when you do you don't see your new comment it reminds me of the way our blogs look with the comment box Let me know if anyone has the same thing Please

JudyE said...

I am on the new look right now jus testing and playing and waiting at the bottom of the page has a Load more in blue to refresh the page

JudyE said...

and when you make a comment from this page it takes you back to the top of the page and you have to click LOAD MORE what a PIA I hope its just something going on with my puter OH I will go check my lap top to see if its like that there

Lynne2 said...

HEY what's going on??? This all look completely different!!!

JudyE said...

well its like that on my laptop tooo and in the lower right corner it send feedback well I am I don't like the new way The Blogger gear comes up and its seems user unfriendly now you when you make a comment it doesn't put you back where you were Its like they are going backwards with technology I think any way

Lynne2 said...

what is going on here???

Lynne2 said...

new looking thread!

magpie said...

Mine looks the same here from work
Lynne2
and the thread had not
been changed when I left from
home

JudyE said...

I sent feed back to them besure you do if you notice the dislike like I did
after you make a comment you have to go to the bottom of page and reload more Dumb I think they messed up blogger

JudyE said...

I have both the old and the new up I see Lynne has the different look Its after you back out or open a new IE

JudyE said...

off to pick up Jordyn to see if she want to come to my house to play instead of staying at school to wet and chilly out for a park

stronghunter said...

We'll be attaching the fan to the place the previous fan was attached, so that should be secure, Judie. I had fans put into all bedrooms and the family room. The fan in Susan's bedroom died because of too much cat hair floating around in there.

So my pronoun's antecedent was vague. I had no issue with the intelligence of the electrician. Just let me put it that way.

I will not list all of the reasons that made me conclude that my ex was not so smart after all, but a lawyer who couldn't figure out that he might wish to block my access to his credit card information when he went astray ain't so smart. His expenditures told a lot about him.

Sandi said...

Hi all - checking in from school to find a new thread with already 100 comments on it! Chatty bunch this AM!!

Dana, today was the first day I showed the live cam to my kids on my Smartboard. they were mesmerized too! They always have a hard time believeing that what they're seeing is LIVE and visualizing the actual size of the nest and the eagles.

As for eggs, Belle laid her first eggon Super Bowl Sunday, just before kick-off time, so that was early February.

I have hung several ceiling fans with a girlfriend - piece of cake (black wires to black wires, red wires to red wires, nothing to it)! Even switched a chandelier and a ceiling fan b/c my friend wanted her dining room to be her living room and her living room to be her dining room.

Lolly, it really bugs me when I am working my butt off and others around me aren't! It bugs me with my students as well! I made a study guide for a social studies test. One kid said, "Don't even give me a copy - I won't study." His IEP meeting is next week and I plan to tell his dad that, if Jacob is OK failing the 8th grade, then so am I! I can't be the only one working! The kid never does homework, so Dad is no better than the kid - apples and trees! I sign the kid's agenda book every day to show that his homework is recorded and he comes to school day after day with no homework!

OK, back to work - gotta finiah this IEP since I have another one to write over the weekend. Later!

Mema Jo said...

I have returned from an eye dr visit. I will be blinded in my left eye for a few hours.

OK - The comments under my Live eagle cam on Outdoor..... I just made a comment and bingo while looking at the cam - there was my published comment.
How about that? Not bad ♥

Sandi said...

Oops, forgot to check the box.

magpie said...

Mema Magic

Mema Jo said...

My comment is also published on my profile page on FB..

Mema Jo said...

Margy - Michael is so pleased with his card! You are an angel. After all the commotion of the last 3 months the praises are dying down. Your card really picked up his spirits. He is trying so hard to over come the speech difficulty. Scull is replaced Jan 9

Prayers please once again! Thank you.

Mema Jo said...

Miss-spelled SKULL

BBL Need to rest my eyes
and may as well put my feet up at the same time...........

stronghunter said...

Big eagle day today! I see Belle, and logged on just as Shep poofed.

stronghunter said...

A gathering in April? Oh, that would be nice.

stronghunter said...

Was just thinking how I would love to see the Sycamore Palace again.

stronghunter said...

Was just thinking how I would love to see the Sycamore Palace again.

stronghunter said...

Well, I double posted, but it is such a nice thought that I'll just leave it there.

JudyE said...

JO I see what you meant it does go on your profile but not news feed ok heading out to take Jordyn to Angies work BBIALW Love seeing Belle in nest still

Judie said...

Back from lunch a while ago and do not much like this new format. All dark and unfriendly looking.

Sure hope the old format returns.

Bye

Sandi said...

Hi all! Home from school and it would appear there is an EAGLE IN THE NEST! LOOKS LIKE BELLE!

BTW, I get the twirling arrow about every 30 seconds but it only lasts for a few seconds and then the live cam starts again. Still preferable to the still cam!

Lori said...

Hi everyone! Looks like STEVE changed the format on his blog page for the cam.

JudyE said...

JUDIE this format wasn't like this earlier it had a odd white look and nothing was in it right place here is a snip of the format that was earlier and it was almost like one of our blog the comment area anyway and when you signed on the big orange blogger gear would pop up and also would pop up when you made a comment and to see your comment you would have to click on load more that was a pia I made a comment on the feedback part and said it was slower and unfriendly to use we got our old format back but different color that is better that the pic on the right here

Lori said...


The FULL SCREEN on the cam sure is awesome! Looks great!

JudyE said...

and the area where our days of the week and thread was really messed up as you can see in the picture on the right here

JudyE said...

I can't use the full screen and blog at the same time If my lap top had a bigger key borad I could use it should have gotten the bigger one but they where out when I bought it to go on vaca that is what I get for being in a hurry to have one on vacation .

JudyE said...

Its hard to beleive she is still in the nest This has been a awesome day for the eagles in the nest

NCSuzan said...

Just checking things out!

NCSuzan said...

The dark background enhances the white letters so much it is almost blinding!

NCSuzan said...

I definitely do not mind a change but something a little easier on tired eyes would be nice.

On ABCNews.com this morning was an article on the Fl. eagles. No mention of the babies, just the popularity and history of Mom and Dad.

NCSuzan said...

Got to grab stuff out of the drier.

Oh and Wanda, I followed you this morning with interest and a sincere heart to find what was happening to the crows. You led me to the end of the pier and kicked my butt as I fell in! Loved it.

Later!

NCSuzan said...

Lordy, lordy, I meant Lynne. LMBO!

JudyE said...

both eagle in nest now

JudyE said...

both were doing nestoration in center with flugg

Hoda said...

WOW what happened to our blog? It is a black page I get with small writing and hard to know how to get here!!!
Yes both eagles are in the nest now. They look pretty. a bit windy it sounds like.
Twirly thing on cam off and on

JudyE said...

Looks like Belle is gonna poof stretching neck loosing out to the right no she stayed

JudyE said...

both just sitting and looking around

JudyE said...

shep moves to middle and belle oopens her wing and beaking begins

Hoda said...

I very much like the clarity of the camera...nest looks soft.
Beaking

JudyE said...

HP HP HP HP

Hoda said...

Maybe they should not zoom in so much so we could a wider view.

Almost HP???

JudyE said...

then cam twiriling thing it was hp did anyone else see it and still didn't get it now beaking

Hoda said...

Spoke to soon JUDYE he changed his mind...

JudyE said...

It looked like hp but the cam froze so couldn't tell that is twice today the twirly thing got in the way

Hoda said...

I don't think it happened JUDYE...Twirling aside it was not long enough and the vocals did not go with it.

Hoda said...

I wished they would zoom out.

JudyE said...

almost two hours she has been in the nest

Hoda said...

Poof Belle

JudyE said...

poof

JudyE said...

odd just as I said almost two hours she left

JudyE said...

shep did a pick at flugg now looking around maybe he wants to leave tooo

Hoda said...

Camera frozen here

Hoda said...

changed to regular page not frozen. Shep continues to be in nest

Hoda said...

Looking about!

JudyE said...

Hey you remember that they had zoomed in to get a better look at the hatching last year I wonder if there is a zoom so that can zoom back just a little Hoda thinking along your lines

JudyE said...

the cam freeze has been on and off all day

JudyE said...

POOF SHEP

Hoda said...

zoom out is definetly in order...who is going to tell Steve.
Poof Shep

JudyE said...

show must be over for the day was nice to be able to see them most of the day either one or both in the nest

JudyE said...

big cam shake someone landed on cam

Hoda said...

Camera shakes...someone landed on it?

Hoda said...

This is a new cam so I do not think the zoom issue is from last year's hatching season JUDYE.

JudyE said...

eagle in nest

JudyE said...

its Belle

Hoda said...

Belle back in...heard her wings...

JudyE said...

working on flugg in middle of nest

JudyE said...

I also heard her wing before I saw her HODA

Hoda said...

Nesting in the cup...trying it our for size.

JudyE said...

Looks like she decided to sit down

JudyE said...

I love her tail wing when it exposed showing us her slip LOL BIG SHAKE ON CAM

Hoda said...

Camera shakes...Shep took off and lands in nest

JudyE said...

the shake was HIM

Hoda said...

Windy over there...

JudyE said...

Odd that they both are back this late must be getting serious now huh

Hoda said...

Looking about...

JudyE said...

POOF

Hoda said...

Off Shep...

Hoda said...

she is looking about...

JudyE said...

poof

Hoda said...

Poof Belle

Sandi said...

Judy, I agree with Hoda. Even though my cam froze just as Shep flew up, I don't think enough time elapsed for anything to happen between Belle and Shep. I think he was interested but ...

MT nest now.

Hoda said...

There is still colour in the nest this late...pretty amazing rather...

JudyE said...

NITE LITE ON and we can say that is for real now

Hoda said...

night light...5:29 pretty awesome

Sandi said...

Personally, I'm not going to complain about the new look of the blog or the zoom on the cam. I've waited so long to see the eagles, I'll take whatever I get - zoomed in, zoomed out, twirly arrow every 30 seconds, whatever!

Hoda said...

Well God Bless USA Immigration...I followed the clues to try to figure out when I arrived to Canada...Old Age Security and Old Age Pension want to know EXACT dates of where I lived since I was 18 years old and they want to know the exact date I entered Canada.
Well I could not.
I went to my safety deposit box today and spent half an hour following a paper trail that I was smart enough to keep when I was younger...Huge USA stamp on my Passport for when I exited the USA...then I found my landed immigration paper...all is good...very clear dates on there...YAY...

JudyE said...

Nice video interview of the owners of the land where the eagles are in Ft Meyers
Interview with the lady that lives on the property

Lori said...

Glad you found your paperwork, HODA!

grannyblt said...

Hoda I am glad all is well with your Old Age Security and Pension situation. I got a letter today from Social Security concerning my TRS retirement offset. Geesh, I haven't even applied for TRS benefits yet because SS would take most of it. guess I'll trudge over to the SS office 40 miles away to see about it next week.

grannyblt said...

On a birding note, we went looking for Lapland Longspurs, Snow Buntings, and Horned Larks today. We saw one Horned lark, 2 meadowlarks(unusual for this time of year) and about 50 turkeys. We were on back untreated country roads and nearly had a snow adventure.
I would love to come to an Earth Day get together--now that I know I could get there in 4 and a half hours.

Hoda said...

GRANNYBLT I understand about cheques that come from the Gov't and return to the gov't...
I get one such cheque already...I pay sales tax and they think I pay too much so they write me a cheque for times a year which I save and write them a cheque once a year for my income tax!!! I will be elgible for another one of those next November. They they ask my to apply for one I am not eligible for so then when the rules change they have my application!!! They are all nuts in so far as I am concerened. I will be happy to get my OAS and my CPP though...the other three is like monopoly money...the one I collect now and the two I will apply for...LOL!!!

Hoda said...

Thanks LORI.
We have lots of snow here today and tomorrow I will go have hot cider and listen to Irish and Scottish music...worth the walk to get there...

JudyE said...

I did do a ten min video today and I had put it on when I was getting my truck done but I didn't bring the link over

this am visit about 8ish this am visit by both fly ins and outs too
