Sunday

I have to admit--back in November, we were very worried that the birds may have moved on to another nest.  It is normal that a nest is abandoned after six or seven years.  We had heard from local folks that there were potentially two other nests within a few minutes flying time of our tree, and the fact that the birds were not hanging around very much had us concerned.

Based on the past few weeks though, things seem pretty much going the same as in the past.  Let's keep our fingers crossed that it is a smooth start to the nesting season.

New thread.

Wow. Really like the new looks here. First - Hope everything and everyone has been well. And if not, you were able to get through OK. Happy Late New Year - Been a very hectic and busy last few weeks. A busy season for my work, boss has been nursing a sore foot and I've been working a great many hours while suffering from the worst cold/flu/infection thing that I can remember. Worked three 10 hour plus days last week to top things off. Can't complain because we can use the funds and I am working. Watched the nest some this morning looks like not much going on there now. Is it my imagination or the view of the nest different now? Hope I can be a little more active now. Take care all.

Janet said...

woo hoo, WVJERRY got a feather! and a new thread! thanks steve!

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for the update, Steve. Maybe we have more than 1 pair in the area!

Welcome back Jerry! Congrats on the feather.

Jerry, new cam was installed in November. View is slightly different.

Good morning! And, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE BLOG TWINS...LYNNE AND JANET!!!!!

Oh, so very glad to have our nest and our cam. Hate the thought of them building another nest elsewhere.

The Llano eagles have had three different nests in the last few years, but all close to the highway in the same area. The highway dept built a parking area and put up pedestrian warning signs and then the eagles moved their nest. However, you just park and walk the path a little further down.

Lolly said...

Today we have a large group from our church going to the Boars Head Festival at the large Univ. Christian Church in Fort Worth. It is awesome...have not been in several years but it is so grand and the music fantastic. A great way to end the Christmas season.

Lolly said...

Have been watching little birdies pick at the nest. Brave little souls!

Lolly said...

Laurel cooked her first meal at the new house and she slept in her own bed last night. But, still so much more to move...mainly Joey's stuff!! But she still needs her china cabinet and piano and the patio furniture.

Lolly said...

I am off to start my day! Will be back this evening!

Have a great day....especially the birthday girls!!!♥

Judie said...

Good morning!

Thank you Steve for the update. Everyone is anticipating a successful eaglet season at our Sycamore Palace.

Judie said...



♪♫Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Janet and Lynne, Happy Birthday to you both ♪♫

May you both enjoy a very special day and a great year ahead.

Judie said...

Strangest event to report. Kept hearing mooing last night. Could FFax Cty have spiked the water supply? Am I schizophrenic and hearing animal voices? Then the sandperson literally dragged himself, exhausted. Said he was seriously delayed making rounds (especially getting to southern B.C.) because his routes were all blocked by mooing cows. Very strange event, indeed.

Judie said...

Okay, time for more coffee and to rub some ribs.

Hope everyone has a great day and may their favorite team (Redskins) win.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Belle and Shep can't leave us!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Steve, I want to thank you for not letting us know those concerns. I would have panicked.

Lolly said...

Same here, Sharon!

Dana is at the hospital with her dad. She says they are keeping him there, he needs blood. Let's keep Dana and her dad in prayer!

magpie said...

Thanks for the Prayer Alert for Dana and her Father, Lolly...

Enjoy your day...

Good Morning Eagle Pals
and
Thanks Steve for the New Thread, and the information on your concerns....
Glad "OUR" Eagles seem to be doing their normal things and hope all the other Eagles will stay in their OWN Roosts as well...

magpie said...

Huge Happy Birthday Wishes
to Lynne2 and Janet;
Hope this is your Best Birthday,
EVER ! xoxo ♥☺♥☺

magpie said...

Oh bummer, might not be able to watch Eagles from work.
:(
Hi Jewels...
☺ ♥
Sandi: and all others going out
birding or Wildlifing:
Enjoy!!

magpie said...

Good on WVJerry for starting out this new thread...
WOOF ! cold, flu, and extra hours
but sounds like he has
the Spirit and Attitude to Prevail!

magpie said...

Just heard a rooster !

Sandi said...

Back from tennis - great morning for me!

Steve, I agree with Sharon that I'm glad you didn't share your concerns about the eagles back in November!

Quick lunch and then off to hopefully see some eagles!

Sorry to hear Dana's dad is in the hospital. Will keep him in my thoughts and prayers this afternoon.

Later!

Lori said...

Good Afternoon everyone!

Just got home from a short trip to PA to check on the folks. Both were happy I showed up, and Mom helped me put the starting touches on two baby quilts...sometimes it's just hard for me to get started so it helps a lot!

DANAMO - Prayers for your Dad and family. Maybe the need for blood is why he's been feeling so puny. Sure hope it helps! Big Hugs!

STEVE - I agree with Sharon, and the others, too. I would have freaked out thinking Belle and Shep had moved on!

SANDI, have a nice eagle sighting afternoon! I saw an eagle on I-70 on my way to PA! I was so excited! Watched him just as he flew onto a branch and sat there in all his majesty!

JERRY - congrats on the feather! Now we're tied with one each. :)

magpie said...

so many sounds, sometimes I don't know if I am hearing an eagle way off in the distance or some of the many varieties of chirping birds around NCTC...

Lori, sounds great, your little visit with your folks...sure that brings great J☼Y into their lives.

Headed out to see James the Wise Kidster...by the time I get back
maybe the Redskins will have achieved Victory !

Best Wishes for a Super Sunday....
for the Birthday girls Janet and Lynne2 especially, and for all
those in Medical, Physical and Spiritual Need....oh, that might just include ALL or MOST of us ♥

xoxo ☺ ♥

magpie said...

I think I see a Royal Sycamore Ball swaying in the breeze near/on
that Sycamore branch to the left of the view
down at the far 7 pm spot of the field of view ☺

magpie said...

and the winds sometimes sound like the Ocean

Okay, 'Bye xo

Judie said...

Wishing a quick and positive improvement for Dana's dad.

Margy, have a super fun afternoon with James the Wise.

Just too cute - the potted plant babe is out and looking around and stretching and Phoebe's babes were abandoned just long enough for a quick view of two baby-beaks.

Bye

Lynne2 said...

alright, why does one of our birds have what looks like a bloody tail?

Lynne2 said...

ah, the other, Belle, I think has a bloody meal.

Lynne2 said...

Shep's beak is bloody, too. EEEWWWW

paula eagleholic said...

Looks like a bloody good lunch, LOL

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, I see Shep's bloody tail..must have been sitting on the lunch...

paula eagleholic said...

Come back Shep, I'm trying to get a pic.

Belle eating the bloody mess.

paula eagleholic said...

Oh Shep is back on the stump at 10

Lynne2 said...

Hi all! Thanks for the birthday wishes.

Put pic in album of the bloody brunch, bloody tail, bloody beak....EEW

Lynne2 said...

BLUNCH is over, time to wipe the bloody beak!

Lynne2 said...

Belle poofed, Shep in

Lynne2 said...

Poor Shep is now picking remnants out of the bloody spot...

paula eagleholic said...

Belle poofed...think lunch is gone...Shep inspecting

paula eagleholic said...

I would guess he ripped a piece of meat off of something for her.

paula eagleholic said...

Big ol bloody spot of the left side of his tail feathers.

paula eagleholic said...

Shep up on the 10 stump

NCSuzan said...

Lynne, many, many birthday wishes headed your way. Happy Birthday!

Janet, Happy Birthday to you. Hope you have a super day.

paula eagleholic said...

T-Bird said...

Sorry I haven't kept up with everyone today. Now I have to go again because I don't want to miss the commentary. ((HUGS))

T-Bird said...

Love you Lynn.

Sandi said...

No eagles at the nest - maybe next time. But a Ravens win is good!

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

I keep getting messae IE can't show the page to the still does anyone else have issues

JudyE said...

I can get the still feed on my laptop but no picture at all black WTH

JudyE said...

YEP STEVE I am glad you didn't tell us the new till now I also would have been uspet if they would have left the nest tree

and I still can't get the still cam up

NatureNut said...

Happy Football Sunday! Ravens won, now the Redskins are playing. Had to take a short break as someone "changed the channel"!!!!Went to Ledo's earlier for subs and salad, so that takes care of din din! Went to Penney's and mall to get a Redskin stocking hat to replace mine that's disappeared.None around. Oh well, guess I'll have to be a Panda!
Wearing my Superbowl Champ sweatshirt from years ago, gold Redskin charm on chain, Redskin teddybear earrings and burgandy socks!Hope it helps!

Hoda said...

Cows, Turkeys and Geese? What have you all been drinking? Then JUDIE says all this commotion is what kept the sandman from making his rounds and what is this I saw right before I slept a cow jumping over the moon??? No no moonshine here...it would freeze I think.LOL

I will keep BRIAN and LYNNIS in my PRAYERS SANDI...In a sense I hope she does not go as she will find it very limiting to move about. When my sister was in Saudi she could not drive, she had to cover up and she could not go shopping without her husband!!! This was in the 80's but still, The Yemen is more conservative than Saudi.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LYNNE

Very glad too STEVE that you did not share your concern in the autumn. Without the live feed we would have worried sick. I wonder if this is why the camera purchase and installation was so late? I am grateful we have them...Is the other nesting tree on NCTC property?

Gracious me I am not sure which was worst the description of the bloody food or the pictures???!!! I am glad they are eating well.

Hoda said...

I hope you are having a terrific trip LOLLY and JACK.

Hoda said...

PRAYERS for DANA'S FATHER and MOTHER and DANA too.

JudyE said...

I learned something this afternoon
Remember I haven't been able to get
the wifi at McDs well today I found
out that our store requested them
to turn in down It was interferring
with our registers and our store
was gonna crash if they didn't
I guess the mgr gave our mgr grief
about it and instead of down they
must have did it off I will talk
with the MCD mgr if he is there
My Asstmgr told me that today Well
now I know its just not me LOL

JudyE said...

I took a pic of the bloody
tail of Shep and posted
on FB will but the pic in the album tooo
I am uploading this am
visit and this evening
short one tooo

DanaMo said...

Thanks everyone! I am home, and so is mom. Dad will be kept overnight. They didn't have his blood transfusion started yet when mom left.
There are a number of things going on. His creatonine levels were high in his kidney (the good one) this can be really bad because he only has one functioning kidney and this is showing that kidney is not functioning at it's fullest. There are a number of things that could have caused it though. One is that he could have been dehydrated, which actually can be from the chemo which caused him to be so tired.... sounds like the snowball effect. He also has fluid on his lungs....pleural effusion, anemia (needs 4 pints of blood) and COPD (his is on O2). I'm really not happy with him because he said he didn't feel well on Wednesday. He didn't want mom to call the doctor. When I went over Wednesday afternoon he told me they would call in the morning. When I stopped Thursday he said he felt better (which I did not believe, but how do you get a 75 year old man to do something if he doesn't want to?). I think this has been coming on all week! Hopefully the IV fluids and blood transfusion will get him back to "normal" again. I am worried that these setbacks are going to cause the doctor in Baltimore not to do the surgery. I want to get this surgery done so that those cancerous parts of him are removed. What a day! Geesh. Thanks for all the prayers they are greatly appreciated. Love you all!

Sandi said...

Dana, thanks for the update on your dad. Prayers continue that the doctors can find the source of the problem, and the solution is an easy one. Not the lazy Sunday you had in mind, was it??

Hoda, Yemen will be a solo assignment.

Redskins game is awfully close!

I probably won't get back on the blog tonight so I'll say goodnight now. See y'all in the AM!

Hoda said...

PRAYERS continue for your DAD DANA. Yes Dehydration can cause a lot of problems...

SANDI I am glad LYNNIS is not going to Yemen and I hope there is a security check where by when BRIAN leaves a building he checks in and out and checks back in when he arrives to another building. They do this with our Diplomats in troublesome areas. Also a Cell phone contact every few hours to verify safety and where abouts and a security team always on the ready to evacuate and or protect those who are serving there. BRIa is certainly in my prayers till he comes home safely after he is deployed...Bless his heart.

Hoda said...

BRIAN not bria!!!

Lolly said...

We are home! Dana, we will be keeping your dad in prayer. Know it has been a hard day.

Hate to tell you...but I am pulling for Seattle. hee hee My cousin played for Seattle after playing for Miami and acquiring several super bowl rings.

Glad I did not see the bloody meal today. Your descriptions were sufficient.

The Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival was awesome. Have seen it before but it has been several years.

JudyE said...

Well I got the still cam up on my lap top but still a no go on this puter HMMM I am wondering if I should do a restore point on my puter with the issues I have been having Have to mull it over in the old head

JudyE said...

oh and I can't get the live to load now what is going on I have it up as the pop us and I still can get it on chrome I am going to pull my hair out over this computer stuff

Hoda said...

I hope the computer issues can be fixed without too much pulling of hair JUDYE!
I brought up the live feed so it is OK.

Pretty amazed that McDonald's co-operated so well with Walmart managers in regards to registers crashing...are they owned by the same people? I do not know...

Welcome home LOLLY and JACK.

JudyE said...

HODA can you get the STILL CAM that is what I can't get to load on my puter and on my laptop it comes up but freezes the time so not working and not on IE or Chrome??
??????????????????????????????????????

JudyE said...

I got the still cam to load but its frozen stuck in time on both the lap top and this puter I am running scans again I did last nite tooo so redoing

In our McD we have MCD some Walmarts have Subway instead of a snack bar The asstmgr told him if he didn't turn it down then the store would crash and he would have to close his mcd because the store would be closed so he had no choice He wasn't going to do it but like I said I think he turned it off instead of down I will definitely ask tomorrow if Omar is there

JudyE said...

I forgot to say HODA they lease the spot from us and do a great business

JudyE said...

paula eagleholic said...

OK JudyE, didn't realize you had MCD's in your store...thought you were going elsewhere.

Poor Skins...they should have pulled RGIII when he started limping on that one run...3rd Qtr I think it was...

NatureNut said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAYS TO JANET AND LYNNE!!!
We can celebrate even if the Redskins lost!
I have a Ravens Superbowl shirt!!
I found a small turtle shell w/both parts intact in the grass at Chelsea yesterday. Thought it might be interesting for kitties, but then thought better of that. Had rinsed it, wrapped in paper towels, but left in car. Told daughter about it and she said turtles are known to carry salmonella! So, if you want to use it, it should soak in disinfectant and always wash hands w/soap after handling turtles or coming in contact with their water.

Well, gotta answer some emails and do the do for appt. tomorrow. What else do we do on days off?

JudyE said...

Is it possible my internet provider could be the issue being I can't get on either the desk top or lap top I wonder (scratching head right now LOL) if it was just one and not the other then I would say puter but both I has to be the connention here some how any input anyone ????

I put two video on the blog the just a hair over 1 min of tonight bloody tail visit you can see it in the first seconds of the video before the light comes on and the other is this am visit before I went to work

Two visits two video short and sweet

grannyblt said...

Dana, Sorry to hear of your Dad's problems. When my DH was on chemo, he had to get blood several times. Don't be surprised if he has to stay more than one day they may try to get rid of the pleural effusion while he is there. Of course this is strictly guessing on my part............

SED to all, I'm off to watch Downton Abby...

Hoda said...

I can not bring up the Still Cam JUDYE.

Thanks for explaining that they are leasing from Walmart...

PAULA sorry about the RED SKINS.

Hoda said...

I can not get up Still Cam nor Nest Updates from the Gov't site...

magpie said...

I went through your links on the Momsters Page, Paula
just to get here...
last time I [could] check the Still Cam had stopped a 8:58

Hello Eagle Pals....
have to say RGIII was eloquent and classy during the post-game
press interview

magpie said...

Difficult time for Dana's Dad, and therefore also for Dana and her Mom....
Prayers a'goin' for immediate relief and improvement

magpie said...

I did buy a Redskins shirt today
at Goodwill, It's a nice one and I will still wear it ☺
I bought it with Lynn♥ in mind
for sure

magpie said...

interesting posts about BLUNCH
Lynne2's picture was "Spot On"

magpie said...

I bet Judie's Game time food fare was great regardless, I am thinking it was Ribs...
and Judie,
Yes I did have a super fun afternoon with James the Wise Kidster....
thanks.

Lolly, you and Tom Sweetie are happy with the Seahawk'w win,
Tom is from Seattle

magpie said...

Thank you, Sincerely, Magpie

stronghunter said...

Been running around town today and am tired. Saying good night. See you tomorrow.

stronghunter said...

Happy birthday, Janet and Lynne.

Mema Jo said...

Happy birthday to Lynne and Janet
I hope you enjoyed your day.

I've been under the weather a little today - upset tummy and just wanted to lie around all day - which I did

Saying good night
Prayers for your dad Dana

I love us ♥

JudyE said...

another permit given to remove a active eagles nest so sad
Eagle nest removed

Lolly said...

Watched TV tonight...Downton Abby on Masterpiece Theater. Great show!

Have to leave early in the morn to go up to Denton. Laurel and Joey report to school for a work day, but the boys do not have school. They will be okay until I get there around 10.

So, I will not be on until late tomorrow. Hold down the fort!!!!

Night all! SED!!!

Hoda said...

JO so sorry to hear that you are a bit under the weather today. PRAYING that it goes away and that you rest soundly tonight and are feeling top shape tomorrow.

Goodnight.

PRAYERS♥

Costume Lady said...

Hope LYNNE and JANET had a great birthday~wished them same on facebook but never know if it was seen by them, so trying it here:)

The Skins game was NOT a good one. RGIII should have been pulled at the half, but played until he was forced to give up! I'm thinking that the fact that Shanahan lied about the doctor saying it was ok for RGIII to play when he first hurt his leg, may lead to his dismissal.

Heading to bed...Good Night all, love and blessings♥

Costume Lady said...

Hot soup and tea, Jo♥

T-Bird said...

Thank you so much Steve for sharing that information on the nesting. I swear I am or would/will have a hard time if/when they move on.

T-Bird said...

Good early, early morning my eagle momsters and dadsters.

T-Bird said...

Insomnia this morning. : (

Lori said...

Good Monday Morning All! Or is there such a thing? :)

LYNNE2 & JANET I hope your birthdays were filled with joy and smiles!

Still bumming about the Redskins loss...and RG3's leg. What a bummer. Happy for SANDI and LOLLY that their teams won!

Glad I missed the bloody mess in the nest yesterday ...what was it? Besides lunch?

DANAMO, glad your Dad is being taken care of at the hospital and hope his care goes very well, and he's home very soon.

Off now to start a brand new week. Hope this one goes FAST! Dad has an appointment with his new oncologist in Pittsburgh on Wednesday when we should find out soon after when they will be scheduling his surgery. Thanks for your prayers!

I love US!

Lori said...

Good Morning, THELMA! Sorry you can't sleep...Try some hot tea like Hoda does.

T-Bird said...

Sure sad about the Skins.

I found a shirt of Donna's that fits me. I've got it on and it feels like a hug.

T-Bird said...

I think I'll do that LORI (I have some chamomile tea. Although I don't know if I want to go back to sleep or make some coffee and stay up to start my day.

T-Bird said...

I think I'm a little manic. I've washed two loads of clothes and cleaned the freezer. That is always good on trash day. It's amazing how much food gets wasted.

T-Bird said...

I'm I all alone here?

Lori said...

You're never alone, THELMA! I'm here.

DanaMo said...

Good morning Thelma and Lori.

Sandi said...

Good Monday morning Lori, Thelma, and Dana!

Lori, the words good and Monday morning do NOT belong together - agreed!

Dogs took longer outside this morning than normal - gotta run.

Prayers for all, esp. Dana's dad today.

Oh yeah, ND plays Alabama for the National Championship tonight - BIG night for Denny!

Make it a great day!


DanaMo said...

Time to hit that damn treadmill!

JudyE said...

Good Morning eagle buds Here eagle here eagle

JudyE said...

Still cam is still being a PIA for me I got it up but the time doesn't advance I got up it was a hour behind I just refreshed it took forever to come up now its up and not counting down the time maybe they are working on it HUH

Janet said...

Good morning to all. Yes, Wanda, I saw all facebook posts and posted a thank you last night. And thank you, today, to you all for all the birthday wishes yesterday. :)

Tomis back to work this morning, I am heading to work. Olivia has one more day; back to school for her is tomorrow.

It is chilly this a.m. 22. But they say heading towards 70 later this week????? That's not good in January!

Hope Jo feels better......

Everyone, have a great day. Light, love and healing to all.

Sandi said...

Hi Lori and Judy - watching the eagles from school.

Sandi said...

Judy, just curious ... why would someone CHOOSE to watch the still cam when the live cam is working? When you said the still cam wasn't working for you, it occurred to me that I hadn't even checked it ONCE since the live cam went live.

JudyE said...

YEP I see Delware on the map funny think is I am not on the map now I think after you are on it for a while you fall off HELP I have falling and can't be found LOL

JudyE said...

Good morning everyone. Guess i need to turn on the cam. Will do that next. I wanted to stop in and say I did get some photos loaded on Glo's Glimpses from last weeks time with the eagles. Also a ocuple of cute ones of you know who in the snow:-). Just click on my name here and look for the Blog called Glo's Glimpses. As always you can click on each photo to see it much bigger etc. OK time to load and enjoy a cam while Dex and i get ready to head on over for coffee and dog treats.

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Hunter's safely on the bus. Having my second cup of coffee.

Belle and Shep enjoying the breezy West Virginia air this morning.

Went with Kathryn to a contemporary church service yesterday morning. The thing about going out to church with Kathryn is this: It becomes an all-day event. We got home just in time to watch the Redskins game. It was fun. We ate lunch with her divorce care friends, then went shopping at Target.

stronghunter said...

Today is Will and Susan's birthday. Thirty-three years ago my number of children suddenly doubled. Happy birthday, my son and daughter.

Off to the day, have a chiropractor appointment in a bit, then need to get some good foods at the store, Old Magpie's Cupboard is bare!

magpie said...

nuthatch, close to the nest somewhere

magpie said...

it was just ON the nest near the Dash of Red
and also just saw a blue jay fly around on the left

Bird Girl said...

Is that a nest cup I see????

Judie said...

Good morning.

Wishing Dana's dad the best.

Happy Birthday to Susan and Will. Happy memories for Shirley.

Well, Margy wasn't the only one to get ahead of the sandperson. Watched the Ravens (yea), the 'Skins (boo), Downton Abby (yea) then fell down asleep.

Margy, hope the chiropractor does much good for you today.

Jo, sure hope you're feeling all better today.

Bird Girl said...

Belle in the nest!

Bird Girl said...

Belle is still in the nest, being a lookout. Not sure if Shep is near or not. There appeared to be a nest cup this morning, at about 12 o'clock position.

Bird Girl said...

And Belle just flew off

Lori said...

Poof BELLE

Lori said...

Hi Bird Girl, Delphia!
I just tuned in and saw her poof! MT nest now. :(

Bird Girl said...

Hi Lori! Not sure what's going on at the nest this am.

It doesn't look like they're really doing much in the way of preparing the nest for breeding. I wonder if it's become a feeding and lookout platform instead?

Mema Jo said...

Good Monday Morning to all ♥

Shirley - 33 years sounds like a long time however to you it could seen like just yesterday! Be sure your twins know they are wished the best

Mema Jo said...

I know you are all praying for Michael when he has his skull placed back but
now another urgent request I have for
prayers

Sammy, Michael's oldest granddaughter has a tumor on her pituitary gland on the left side. Going to do another MRI
this week for a closer look. Left alone it could cause blindness so pray for her to have the best results!

Mema Jo said...

That prayers request at this time is for our blog only. Thanks

stronghunter said...

Prayers, Jo.

glo said...

Lots of Prayers for Sammy

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Lots of prayers for Sammy and the whole Lennox family. ((((((HUGS))))))

Costume Lady said...

(((SAMANTHA))) BIG TIME PRAYERS for that sweet young lady!

Costume Lady said...

Delphia, you asked about the intentions of our eagle pair. I don't get to see them often, but a few days ago, saw Belle wiggling her body quite vigorously in the nest bowl area. Hope that means they are STAYING!
Has anyone seen any HP? If not, that is NOT a good sign!

magpie said...

Absolutely Prayers for Sammy, Jo...
Thank you for bringing this need to us...
xo♥

and continued prayers for Michael....

magpie said...

FWS Site is back up, and the Still Cam is back up

magpie said...

There has seemed to be
some wannabe H-P Wanda... not really sure, but I think there is some suspicion that is has occurred, maybe in the branches above the nest

magpie said...

I did just hear a minute ago, a loud equal squawk close to the nest

magpie said...

equal = eagle

Lori said...

Prayers for Sammy, Jo and Michael Lennox! Love you all!

Margy, have you had a nice day off?

Shirley, Happy Birthday to Will & Susan - happy memories to you!

T-Bird said...

We have a new thread.

stronghunter said...

Good evening,

Time to fix dinner here.

Kathryn is on the way home.

My new avatar--Will and Susan's 4th birthday picture. I have had fun going through pictures today.

Costume Lady said...

Oh, SHIRLEY, I wanted twins so badly when I had KARLA. I had lost 2 babies and didn't want to go through another pregnancy. We thought if I had twins we would name them ED & FRED after our fathers:) Good thing we didn't have twins...KARLA is a nicer name!

magpie said...

Hi Shirley and Wanda.....
We are over on the
NEW THREAD
