They are dedicated birds!Thanks for the new thread, Steve.
I think we have learned over the past several years what great parents these birds are!Thanks for the feather!
2 eagles on the nest now
Shep doesn't want to get up and leave his cozy spot on the eggs.
Shep is finally up off the egg...big wing stretch
And off to the right he finally goes.Mostly circling arrows this morning, but you can still see what is happening. Belle incubating now, facing 3
Oh, Shep is back with a good sized stick, trying to place it on the rails around 5....
He got it down before it got the best of him...big shuggle and he is off to the right again.
Belle up for a quick position change, now facing 12
Thanks Steve...and you are so right, very eloquently stated...about the Royal NCTC Eagles... Paula: Thanks for the call over..you hold tight onto that feather you got this morningI was out of the room for the switch but just managed to see both birds in the nestxoxo
quick good morning to my eagle family...slept in til 7, have had all the dogs out to run and do their thing.now coffee. have had an issue with scout,but only one. all my other furbabies respond to a NO and a squirt of the water out of the water bottle. she plays with it. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm i found her nemesis! a tiny soda can with coins in it. (tape over the top). a sharp NO from me and a shake of the can and she stops/changes behavior. he he he. dry here this morning. trimming the maple tree in the front yard as it is quite tall and i am concerned over it loosing branches in a storm and taking out the red bud tree. hope everyone has a great day! hugs, light and love to all
See a new thread as I'm headed out the door. Just enough time to check the box for emails. Later!
I am LOL at Nick in the back yard...he is digging up ice pieces and eating them....silly boy.
Good morning.Trees are all still where they are supposed to be, Margy. Hope Annandale Ann's are also.Sunshine but very windy here.I see the nest is still there with Belle on duty. I am grateful the blizzard snow did not make a nest visit.Will be out most all day. Will check in tonight. Thinking of Jo and wishing everyone a lovely day.
Oh, Whew Judie....Thanks for checking in...wear a hat when you go out, hat-hair consequences and all.but Hold On to It !!xoxox
GREAT report, Susan..thanks...good way to head in to this day....You rock ♥
Good morning....although I have spent much of it in the bathroom. UGH! I FEEL much better overall, but how in the world can you feel sick and hungry at the same time! Thankfully, no vomiting. No fever. No aches or pains. I'm generally functional. I was worried about the Nororvirus possibility but I think this is just "DI" (dietary indiscretion).
all men and the women they love....my fellow coworker Sharon who is also my birding mentor and the other half of our singing duet (we are only working at the vet til our music career takes off)....well, she is about 5 feet tall. Her hubby is 6'8"!!!!!!Oh Dana, I was ROFLMBO at your "fell a little short" joke!!
I believe we will get another egg today!
Good Morning Sycamore Palace.Paula, I'm glad your feather didn't get blown away :-)Belle is still sitting pretty in the wind.I got to talk with (Jo's) Michael on the phone last evening. He sounds so great, his speech is improving all the time and his enthusiasm is amazing. He said Jo is improving every dayand that Ed is there every day,loving his Jo so much. With so muchlove, hopefully she get to come homethis weekend.Sorry about the delete, Margy. Can we not edit? Just needed to correct one word.
Glad you got to talk to Michael, Susan!
I'm thinking another egg today, too!!Margy, he sounded so together. He'scoming right along!!
Terrible about the baby being blown away. Geez.History/weather buffs...a great book to read if you are looking for something. The Children's Blizzard. It's about the west, early immigrants, the beginnings of weather prediction, and a very bad blizzard.
No can't edit, wish we could, Susan !But you can hightlight all your words, right click, hit copy, then hit the preview, then you get a chance to edit then...also saves the AAAARGH of having the blogger cop eat up your words
Wellll, I did take one oatmeal creme pie out of the freezer and it is thawed out...I will dedicate THAT one to Jowhen and if I scarf it down today☺Good Morning Lynne2 - I volunteer to whistle for you and your singing partner as accompaniement...Hope you STAY feeling at least better than you felt last night!
BUTI am starting the day now witha bowl of REAL Oatmeal,with some butter for a little fatinsulation, and some cinnamon.Pretty yummy.
hahahaha You're a good woman for dedicating your Moon Pie to Jo. So funny.
Susantry it, the highlight, right click and copy then preview...just intentionally make some typos or leave words out and see how itgoes...and it will SAVE your text in the copy bin until you do it again☺I used to do that ALL the time but have let my guard down ☺
ooooops had Moon Pie on the brain.Lynne, could your illness just be nerves, honey? I hope whatever it is that it passes quickly.
Just a quick GOOD MORNING! Need to eat and we head out in 20 minutes. Heading to Denton for basketball and then helping to move garage stuff if it is not raining.Lynne, glad you are not too sick. Take it easy! Got a phone call an hour ago from Zach. All he was doing was playing loud music for me. I listened for a while but when I got him to talk told him I had to go. He wanted to know did I want to listen to 7 or 11. I said I had to go and he hung up on me. He was on the house phone and I bet his parents were still asleep.
If I had Moon Pies I would dedicate them to Jo Also !But on some occasions late at night a few years back, waiting for egg-laying or hatching, somehow we got on to this crazyroutine ☺Maybe someone will smuggle one or two into the hospital to her this week-end
I want Belle to lay a second egg this evening when I am home.
I would say we are due for another egg today, too!
Oh Margy, I thought about sneaking one in for her!
Well, Lolly....speak up loudly so Belle hears your request, put your mouth close to her head on your computer screen...but don't be gone too long !!Have a fun and not too strenuous day today...Paula, glad you found the cologne you wanted for Merry Larry...bet it's a wonderful scent!
You should have, Paula....for the laughs!Gotta run...hold down the fort!
Lolly, I sent Belle an text with your request. ;-)
I don't suppose there is anything like a reduced sugar or sugar free oatmeal creme pie...Well, I'm done magpie-ing now,Best Wishes on this New Thread for All, with Positive Thoughts and Prayers and all that jazz !xoxo ♥
Good Morning!!Well I totally missed yesterday's thread, so I must go read what's been happenin'.....Very busy day yesterday with not a lot of definitive answers on the ear thing. Trying a different inhaler with an oral steroid medication (medrol dose pack) to try to reduce swelling in th sinus and eustation tube to see if that helps. No bubble and no fluid. Hearling test shows a little loss in hearing on the right side, but minimal. If that doesn't work, we go to plan B, whatever that is!!Must go read back!Beautiful sun on the nest this morning... ;)
LYNNE - Sorry for the bathroom blues.....That is no fun!
Linda, I have appt with an ENT on Feb 19th, a doc my daughter has a lot of faith in and he is very progressive. Hoping to get some answers, as well. Good luck with your situation.
What is she having problems with?
A good report, Linda....hope all will go well with this plan...Whose Birthday is it today??one of our Bloggers family members but I have CRS....
Belle has gone on a flyabout.
egg is exposed,Belle off the nest
Hope you feel better, Lynne2!!And Welcome back to Jerry, Bob, Donnie, and Maria!
It's me, Linda. Chronic sinusitis and hearing loss. SUCKS!!
Do you also have tinnitus?
Margy, no birthdays today!Next one is Mattie on the 13th
That was mentioned, Susan, but he isn't sure yet. The feeling I have could resemble tinnitus, but yes, I have the same with chronic sinusitis.He thinks that because I started using regular nose spray at night, I may be having those rebound symptoms that could contribute to the problem. He thinks the eustation tube could be opening and collapsing causing the sensation I am having.
And sorry for misreading your post. A good ENT is good to have. I had to use one for scopes in FL for nodules on my voice box. Didn't have heart burn that I felt, but lost my voice. Now I have to take Nexium daily and get checked for that as well. Strange.I don't hear constant ringing or high sounds, but I do have occasional high tones or beeps that I hear.
You'd know if you had tinnitus. It's so aggravating. I hear it all the time and interferes with "real" sounds.
Oh, just read your last line again. Def sounds like tinnitus, also.
egg all alone....
sUSAn - You won't like this one, but I started out in my young years smoking since I came from a family of smokers and it was cool!! I actually became allergic to the smoke, which was a blessing in disguise. It made it easier to quite at the ripe ole age of 24!!
Thanks Paula... I just keep thinking someone said the 9th would be a good dayfor Eggbert #2....becuase it was a birthday...maybe someone's mom or dad ??
SUSAN - Some days I don't even have it, though. Other days it is relentless!
I'll let you know what this ENT has to say. I'd be elated if someone can get this resolved, for both of us.
I hope I am worrying too much, but that egg has been naked for over 13 minutes...
LYNNE - If you're hungry, go easy on your food selections. Stick to the BRAT diet. Maybe some toast or saltines to start off with. So sorry you woke up to that.
yup, time for an eagle to come back...
Eagle back...putting away some stick....it's Shep
My tinnitus is 24/7 and so many causes that it's difficult to treat.
I was just going to say I wish they'd clean up the nest and put some of those sticks back up on the rails...but today probably wouldn't be a good day for that!
Yeah, like a 6' long stick.... LOL
Belle is back
Shep standing in the nest, looking around.
Make that Shep, hard to tell in the wind.
We got a little over 8 inches of snow last night!!It is a winter wonderland all around our home!!Just beautiful.....
WOW that's a lot of snow, Linda.
OK Shep- sit on the egg--just for me--I'm a worrier
That's OK granny :-)
SUSAN - that must be so annoying.My ENT said sometimes, if it kind of pulsates, it could actually be from your carotoid artery being so close to something in your ear, that you feel it there. I don't think mine is that regular. A cat scan would probably reveal more, too, but hopefully I won't need that.He said things I couldn't even understand for if this does not work. The good thing about that for YOU is there are many avenues to pursue to find the underlying cause.When is your appointment??
Linda, Feb 19 for me. I had a CT a couple yrs ago, just showed the chronic sinusitis. Hopefully, this ENT will have more to offer that antibiotics. I'll be sure to let you know.
GRANNYBLT - Lnne1, I am so very sorry your beautiful Daisy has crossed over the rainbow bridge. Your avatar is beautiful and I deeply feel your loss. We so love our furbabies and they just don't live long enough!!
My cousins up in Massachusetts have over a foot of snow.
Sit Shep Sit...on the egg
SUSAN - Will look forward to your report. Hopefully he will have some good news for you.My son has the same thing with the chronic sinusitis and recently is having anxiety problems. His ENT said they could be related. When he can't breath, he could be getting anxious. He is going through his second round of allergy testing, since he stopped taking his shots over 6 months ago. He also has a deviated septum as do I.POOF!
I have cousins in Boston and in New Hampshire and a brother in Syracuse. I am sure they all got more snow than my piddly little 8".... LOL
Shep is incubating...facing 5
SHEP settles down on the egg
He brought back some flugg
OK, Paula......we're posting exact duplicates!!!I am going to catch up on yesterday's threadand then get to my desk!!!Just love that sun shining on the nest...
Now we can resume normal breathing...Paula, my sister in the Berkshires, Western Mass,has 13 inches...they expect maybe more...
OK......so one more thing.....maybe...I got Dennis his first smart phone for Christmas...decided on the iphone5 since I had the 4S andcould help him with my limited knowledge!!He said he didn't want one, of courseBut he is really loving it. He hates the phone, but is in better communicationwith his son, his niece and a a few others with the texts!He also said he would never text!! LOLYesterday while he was waiting for me at the doctor, he stayed in the truck, checking weather reports, the news, etc.Now he texts me if he is downstairs and I am upstairs reading or blogging!He will text me if I am working at my desk and he is in the living room watching tv!!Too funny. He loves that darn thing!!
LOL! Funny, Linda!
Shep facing 6 now...tucking it in...too cute.gotta get dressed and start working on the basement. Ajay is coming down later today to help...will keep the nest up all day.
Linda, so funny' Have a friend like that. Always saying, hey did ya know the phone will do this? hehehe
Margy, hope you've gotten some stuff done...thought you were home this week...
Shep is still settled on the egg.
Okay....caught up on yesterday's events.LYNNE2 - Surely hope you find the perfect place within your budget. You know all too well how the budget constraints affect your life, so I hope the rent is reasonable for you!!Hoping that dietary indiscretion is nothing more than nerves and not a bug or virus.LOLLY - Glad to hear JACK was not lost out there somewhere. He is too young for that!! Dinner sure sounded yummy last night!
Have to refresh the cam page everyone once in awhile...seems to stop playing for me.Shep facing 3ish...tucking the fluff in
Hi all! Home from great tennis this morning and have caught up on my reading - 65 comments since I left at 9am!!Linda, while I was speed reading, I thought you suggested that Lynne2 eat toast and sardines!! =) had to go back and reread! I wouldn't eat sardines with a healthy stomach much less a queasy one!!I'm predicting that we get another egg today too. I think Hoda may have said it would be her dad's birthday today?? Someone DID say something about this being a special day for someone! CRS!OK, need to get started on laundry and writing that blasted IEP.If you're on the east coast, don't blow away out there!!Later!
Have sat in on many IEP discussions, Sandi. I do appreciate the effort that goes into creating them. Bless you.
Yes, Sandi, you are correct! A great egg day :-)Happy Birthday to your dad, Hoda!
I, too, think that this should be egg #2 day. We certainly have a rocking cradle for those little ones.
My son near Portland Maine says he had 34 inches. Haven't talked with Boston cousin yet.Linda, back in the day of new cell phones, my husband and I would call each other when shopping in a big box store. We always had extra minutes to burn. If he were alive, I think he would have loved texting.
that's it Sandi!I believe it was Hoda's American Dad...am I close on that?I do believe you have a much milder case of CRS than I!Okay then,Happy Birthday to dear Hoda's American Father !xo ♥
I have also had to refresh the live feed a few timesPaula, yes off all week,no, did not accomplish a lot ofanything, but I think it's what I needed, some nothing time ☺Massage therapist could tell I was away from the office ☺she starts at the feed, works herself upwards and sees, reads, and feels many things....actually she starts when she calls for me and leads me back to the treatment room.SOME of this is due to the ergnomics or lack thereof at the office
that would be starts at theFEETgrannyblt, that is a dear message about your husband and you texting♥♥and also the other texting comments here such as Linda and Dennis's ♥♥
egg tending in progress now
I actually do have some things to do outside the home soon.time to shake a couple of legson that....Oh lots of snow reports from you folks on yourselves and your families...so, FYI, ttfn, bbl , C-U, and xoxo ☺
Granny, that was a nice thought to share.Shep is back on the egg
Speaking / Thinking of Hoda...have not seen her this morning on this new thread...BIG SHOUT OUT to Hoda...and to JO and ED also !okay, 'bye
Later Margy.Shep is still settled on the egg.
We've used our cell phones to call one another in big stores. It is a great help.
Shep facing 5ish
Margy, glad it has been a restful week!
CRC egg is hatching now!
CRC are the eagles Derek and Savannah.
1st chick at CRC has hatched. Mom just rolled chick and the 2 other eggs, LOL. She's trying to figure out what to do with the shell now.
1978 Blizzard in OhioI did not realize that so many species of birds were nearly wiped out in Ohio by this storm.
Oops, that is Derek on the nest.
Yay for the CRC eagles!
She rolled the chick?
He rolled the chick?
Dad got the shell out :)
Yup, LOL...chick is OK
Love the way Savannah and Derek have arranged the sticks on the nest!
Bet Belle will come back later and lay an egg!
Back to the basement...
I am going to have a nervous breakdown.We looked at the 2 other apts and I liked the second one. Only THEN did the guy say i had to fill out a credit app. UGH. For FORTY DOLLARS!!! I alread paid THIRTY FIVE for the one yesterday! I was honest with this man as well, about our situation. But he said that he didn't make the decisions. He gave the apps to the credit whoever they are and THEY tell him who he can and can't rent too. WHAT?? The other man didn't say that!!! He said HE made the decision. I'm so frustrated.....and I am going to be very disappointed if we end up not getting that place from yesterday.....
Cool, there is a tree shadow on the CRC nest...can see a woodpecker in the tree shadow as well
Switch at CRC
Having trouble bringing up CRC. Will keep trying.
Oh, Lynne, I hope you get what you want. Geesh.
I got it up on IE, Shirley.Lynne, will keep my fingers crossed for you on the first place...
Thank you. AAARRRRGGGGGHHHHHHH!OK, now that I have that off my chest I will continue to stare at the phone waiting for it to ring....Those watching Lucy and Larry...I have been off and on. Really hoping they defy the odds and successfully raise some babies this season!
I haven't been able to get CRC up this season. I get the message that it needs Windows Media. OK, I have WM and use it at other sites. Not sure of the problem. Any suggestions. I get the same message home and office, IE, Firefox, and Google Chrome. hmmmOur boy, Shep, must be getting hungry. He's a real trooper today.
Shep flew off and I hear some calling. Egg alone.
Belle has landed.
I have the same problem, Susan. I have tried Firefox, IE, and Google Chrome. I get into a confusing mess of stuff and I may have deleted a lot of other stuff updating Firefox, which I do not even use most of the time.
Perhaps you should not wait too long for the phone to ring before you call the place you are most interested in getting into, Lynne.
Well, maybe I will try IE again. Did not go too far with them.
Sheo flew off
Yes, finally got there via IE. Thanks, Paula. The video is very small, though. I do not remember that it was so small before.
I got in, also, thru IE this time. YEAHHHH
Belle has flown off.
well Shirley, I am quite sure I made a happy bubbling ass of myself gushing over the place yesterday and he DID say HE would be making a decision in the next day or so and the of the couple of people who have been to see it, he say so far he preferred ME. And I actually DID call this AM to give him a number of someone for a reference that I didn't have with me. I got a machine though.
OK, Lynne. Hang in there, lady.
Belle has poofed leaving a perfectly round cup holding one beauteous egg. And that circling arrow.
One good thing about a bricked-in backyard. No mowing. You can just sweep it, and it will make a nice place for a patio table, some chairs, and a grill. I could live with that. Add some pots for plants, and you are set.
Lots of hollering at the CRC.
there IS a picnic table! and 3 flower beds!I love that round egg cup...can't wait to see another egg in it, or 2!
Got a pic of the round cup. Posted on FB.
Lynne, I hope he calls back with a big YES. This is the first floor place, right?
along the outside wall at the window, I think I can put my tall shepherd hook for feeders and flowers!I NEED TO LIVE THERE!!We also called about an apartment on a small farm today in Littlestown. And while it sounds HEAVENLY....not attached to the main house but rather an addition built on to a barn, 15 acres, dogs and cat OK, washer dryer hookups and front yard, it's in the boonies. Too much so for a one car family.
yes Susan, that's the first floor place.
Shep has landed and is on the egg.
and the first thing I'm going to do is CRANK UP THE HEAT!!!!!! It's freakin' freezing in this basement today!!!!
uh, Shep, we love you. BUT...if you on on the cup, we won't get another egg.
Yeah, you need to be in town, Lynne. And you need to be in control of the heat, etc.
I am sure Belle will chase him off the cup when she is ready.
We lived in town in Fredericksburg for awhile. I liked it. I could walk to the college campus and to nearby restaurants.
Lynne, I so hope this place comes through for you and Steve. Have a plan and move forward. Everything is crossed. :-)
Goodness, those eagles at CRC have a lot to say.
I think it is cool that CRC is on Sample Road. Sample is my father's middle name--his mother's maiden name. And Huntersville is his family homeplace. Would love to go there and do some family research.
Oh, not his mother's maiden name. It would be further back than that, but still a family name.
Shep is alarm calling from the egg cup. And quiet again.
It's a beautiful area, Shirley.
Shep has flown. Lots of calling.
Shep is back,moving sticks and then sat on egg. Working on his domain.
I wanted to stop in and say HI! Have been watching next whenever I can but have not been to blog as much as I would like! having trouble keeping up with everything. Hope all are well and on watch for egg #2 along with ya'll! I am thinking it will be this eve! if not, tomorrow, but I think this eve
Just sitting here working on this IEP for next Wednesday and watching the nest.Shep has been on duty for a long time today. I hope it means that Belle is getting plenty of exercise and food to prepare for laying another egg this evening/tonight!Shirley, 6 years ago, it used to take me about an hour to write an IEP. Now it takes me about 6 hours b/c of all the new regulations - so much bureaucratic BS!!Lynne2, did you not fill out the credit app. for the place you liked today, so now you're down to hoping for the one place? Sure hope you find something soon! I assume you and Steve are paying rent to stay in your friend's basement. If so, it seems very unfair that you can't have heat!! After all, you're helping them out with their mortgage payments/bills with whatever money you're giving them! The idea of Mr. Man having sole control of the thermostat makes me angry!OK, back to work; this is a very complex kid and consequently, a very complex IEP to write! I'm here watching, even when I'm not posting!!
On our way home. Saw two BB games, moved 2 loads of garage stuff (lawn tools) and now headed home. See no egg yet!
yes Sandi, I did fill out one for the first place but I don't think that man sends them to someone,,,?
HELLOOOOO HOME from work and find a fresh full thread must bee some excitment HUH Now to go read and FYI I didn't get a commerical at all with the live cam but I have a thing up in the top left corner telling me Your video will resume in 166 sec and its counting up the seconds What up with that
pulling a SANDI forgot to check the box lol
and yes Sandi...hoping Belle's out having her last "hurrah" because she'll be laying an egg this evening. Hi Lydia...glad you check in!
better take my temp. I am REALLY FREEZING. Have on a sweatshirt and a blanket and still can't get warm.I think, I hope, that our stay here serves a purpose in helping Tracey to see some things in a clearer light.
I'll "hurrah" to that! Sandi, all good points.
Here is a video I did from the park yesterday Remember the hawk that is a resident there well it flew over our heads with a nice mouse or baby rat here is a video I sit to music because of all the kids that were there Hawk eating a rodent delicious LOL
shep wants something eagle chirps
He doesn't seem happy at all
SIS Angie used that method with her dogs for jumping up amazing only a couple of times and they understood
SHEP IS DEMANDING BELLE TO RETURN HE IS OF THE EGG AND POOF
LOTS OF CHIRPING AND CLUNK ON CAM HOUSING
I think Shep is saying, "Enough already!!!! Get your butt back in this nest, girlfriend!!"
Great news about MICHAEL speech improving
YEP I think you are correct Sandi and here she is
she materilized I dislike the SPINNING CIRCLE
And there she is! OK Belle, get busy!
I went to the Libarary and they still don't have all the tax froms in yet and since I sold stock I need the Form D and noticed it is different this year you have to fill out 8949 too that is new I dislike trying to figure out the average of the stock since its payroll dedection
you all are freezing and I am sweating have my windows open and the fan in the window was too warm today not to bad now 74°
wow just had a power surge flash of sort but didn't loose puter cable box but not puter Odd
I still think egg 2 is coming tonight! I have to go get dinner ready --shoot--time to carry laptop to the dinner table
belle up for a roll
geesh I was hoping she was up for an egg LAYING!
BELLE has pulled flugg up almost to her neck around her
Judy were you ever able to get postive ID on the birds at the retention pond?
no I sent it to the Audobon but nothing yet lots of peeps say the same thing on the Birdcount page
this is odd with that surge I lost tv cable and the blog and the still cam and the TWC app said no connection but I could get facebook and the live cam
