Happy Good Friday everyone.

JudyE said...

THANKS FOR THE FRESH THREAD
AND
THE
CALL OVER JUDIE

was getting ready to leave so good I caught the new thread

Shep is still feeding the chicks They take turns so good

Sandi said...

Thanks Steve for the new thread and thanks Judie for the call over!

Yup, looks like Shep has the hang of feeding the chicks! Boy, can they eat!!

Off to run some errands - have been sitting at the computer all day!

BBL!

Lolly said...

In taking a break from the yard work. It is up to 74 and hot working in the sun. Going to go back out but do less strenuous stuff.

Shep is doing his best to keep the kiddos covered and tucked in, but I saw a head peek out on his right side, Then he looked down to his side as if to say "Get back under, now!"

Steve Chase said...

They're growing like weeds.

paula eagleholic said...

They sure are...or as my Mom used to say...growing like a zucchini! :)

Lolly said...

Yes, they are! Two well fed little critters!

Lolly said...

Little poop shooit! :)

Mema Jo said...

Good afternoon Steve and thanks for the fresh new thread on this Good Friday.

Judie, I sure hope you are 2/3 ways through those 100 papers! But I guess you are also watching the cam so maybe you are 1/2 ways through them....

It is becoming very amusing to watch the nest - Dad sitting on the two eaglets and he keeps pulling the fluff around him to keep the little ones covered BUT a little head keeps popping up and out and I swear it looked as though the oldest was helping dad pull more fluff around them. Up jumped Dad and decided it was time to eat again - grabbed the one fish and went over to the 4:00 nest position.
Now he is feeding the little ones.

Lori said...

Good - Good Friday - Afternoon everyone!

Thank you, STEVE, for the new thread!

Gracias, JUDIE, for the call over.

Lolly said...

Just came in. Beautiful day working in the yard. 74 and time to clean up. We just sat outside in the gazebo, perfect weather to do so!

I see our little pealets, cozy in their egg cup. Uh oh, I think Hedgie is not being nice to Shameie.

paula eagleholic said...

wow..quiet here...got all my easter dinner shopping done...having somr fried chicken...then its on to house cleaning

Hoda said...

Beautiful warm day here.

Blessed Good Friday to one and all.

A bit stiff today and I stayed in doing cleaning and laundry, cooking and dishes.

Opened windows and watered the plants.

PAULA are you going to PARADISE or are you staying put this weekend? I missed that info somewhow.

paula eagleholic said...

Shep has chicks well covered

paula eagleholic said...

Staying home for Easter Hoda. Entire family will be here...Michael and Laura arriving tonite

paula eagleholic said...

How's the wrist, Hoda?

paula eagleholic said...

Missed a switch...looks like Belle now.

Lynne2 said...

evening all!

been peeking in on blog and nest and FB while HONEY DOing today. I'll soon be ready for my video tour! Got the "Science and Nature" hutch just about done today. Took longer, as everything seems to these days, than I thought it would. Tomorrow, pictures on to wall. OR, walking and fishing!

Lynne2 said...

now, off to eat. Salmon cakes courtesy of Steve! Yep, he went to Alaska today and did some Salmon fishing.....NOT!

Hoda said...

Wrist is bruised, slightly discoloured on fingers too...no swelling and I have a range of motion that tells me nothing is broken PAULA. The pole strap dug in near my thumb and that is the worst area for looks really. Full range of motion for thumb and all fingers. Sore if I ply my hand forward. Last night I was able to put full weight on it for downward facing dog and decided not to do so today...I think it needs to rest a bit. Thank you for asking.

Glad family is coming in for easter starting with tonight MICHAEL and LAURA... BLESSED BE.

Janet said...

Hoda: so glad your injuries are not worse!!! :) smart to let it rest and heal....

Hoda said...

A friend of mine who lost her brother New Year's Eve, he just disappeared. He was out drinking with friends of his in Wisconsin.Milwakee...It has been very stressful for the family to not know where he was and they had an extensive search.
Well they pulled out a body from the river last night and today on FB she posted that it was a positive ID...They found him. God Rest His Soul. His name is NICK WILCOX.

Janet said...

Oh that is terrible, Hoda! That poor family...sending light, love and comfort....

Lolly said...

Oh, that is really rough, Hoda. They now have closure, but not good. Guess they will never know what happened, So sad!

We have finished dinner and Jack has gone off to the study to watch hockey. Think I am going to go bathe. Yard work today was really dirty, We have about completed the mulch, I mowed, and then dug weeds. I am pooped! Getting clean and comfy for the rest of the night will feel good. Tomorrow I clean house and cook. Everyone will be here early afternoon. We will eat then and then have fun with the kids. Not much cooking tomorrow....some deviled eggs, and a couple of salads.

Lolly said...

Janet, love your avatar. One can not help but smile when looking at it.

Janet said...

Thank you Lolly. That is my youngest granddaughter, Lorelei.

Hoda said...

I agree with LOLLY Janet BEAUTIFUL avatar of baby LORELEI.

JudyE said...

Home from Angies and a visit to the mall to see the bunny now I got to get in the shower for work tomorrow

Mema Jo said...

Good evening - good to see all of you here. A hallmark movie got my attention this evening

I am getting ready to turn off the pc
Happy everyone has Easter family plans

Good night and God Bless

I love us ♥

Mema Jo said...

Janet - Lorelei is like our little eaglets - growing just like they are..
She is precious!

NatureNut said...

Hope everyone had a Good Good Friday!
Couldn't get online again at Chelsea. We had no heat, so Park Mnt. men came and asked "when did you last get oil?" Oil Co. comes regularly on their own, we thought. We called oil co. & they came out and partially filled tank & will be back next week. About the time I left, it was pushing 70°from 57°!
Did a little hiking and found some open daffodils in the woods next to pond! Hardly any open anywhere
else.
Finishing up Easter eggs. What a project!Had some leftover Paas color pills. Used a couple of them & then went the food color route.Wanted to make a green egg, the dye in the green bottle was BLUE! Already had 2.Got the other green bottle and was able to make dark teal & my fingers, too!
Just read back a little and Hoda, hope you feel better ASAP and preyers for your friends' loss. How sad.

In case I don't get back, Prayers for good health for ALL &
Pleasant Feather Dreams ;>)

JudyE said...

Had a little excitement at the mall and we help look for the 2 yr old that was missing it is such a large mall Well it ended well they did find the little girl and what a learning experience for Jordyn seeing how concerned everyone was

JudyE said...

Belle is up looking around

JudyE said...

I put a few pic and the short video of Jorydn seening the Easterbunny if anyone is interested She was so funny as she ususally is
Jordyn seeing the Easter bunny

JudyE said...

Belle is now tucked again I should also be but being out late need to wind down

When I was at the park I got a cool pic of a butterfly also put on the pic

Costume Lady said...

She's the cutest little thing...you can tell she is very comfortable in her own skin and that she knows she is loved. In return, she loves life!

Hoda said...

Glad they found the little mising girl JUDYE.

Goodnight

PRAYERS♥

Lolly said...

Have been playing with my ipad this evening. Now I am ready for bed,

Going to be busy tomorrow getting ready for Sunday.

Night all! SED!

stronghunter said...

Good night my eagle friends. SED, everyone. See you tomorrow.

Lori said...


Good Saturday morning eagle pals!

HODA, I hope your wrist is feeling better today...hoping for healing, pronto!

JANET, you've got a big job ahead of you today washing all your dogs! I usually end up as wet as they are!

LOLLY, I'm so jealous that you're getting so much yard work done. I think about my gardens back home and wonder how they are doing. Kate isn't as much into gardening as I am. She said last night that there are daffodils up, but none blooming yet. Tulip tips are starting to push through.

JUDYE, how nice of you to join the search for the little girl at the mall. Glad they found her!!

PAULA, sounds like you have a housefull this weekend. I bet Nick loves it! Have a great time with the family.

SANDI, what are your Easter plans?

KAY, how are you? I've been missing you on here. Are you going to Julie's for Easter? Big (((HUGS))).

ANDY, glad you got your MRI results and now they can do something about your pain.

SHARON, I hope you are feeling less pain...are you? Any new news?
Are you spending Easter with Andrew?

JUDIE, have you decided about your retirement yet?

JO, where are you having Easter dinner?

Prayers for all in need and big wishes for a love and light filled day!

DanaMo said...

Good Holy Saturday morning!

Hi Lori! I rolled over and the dogs thought it was time to get up. Might go back to bed after a bit.

Hoda-yow...sounds like that wrist hurts. I would say that giving it a rest is a good idea.

Lolly-I am so jealous that you were working in the yard and it was hot. :( I want the nice weather so badly. Supposed to be a little warmer today. Saw the sun a little bit yesterday and went out It was cold, but the sun felt so good. I'm really ready!



DanaMo said...

This time last year I got to meet Kay, now I hardly catch you on the computer at the same time as me :( Hope all is well with you, Kay. Have a great Easter.

I sure hope these days move very slow. After we come back from the break it's time to start counting down to the end of the year. Things have really settled down in the classsroom. My special child has gone to public school where he can get services he needs. I cried. I wish I could have given him what he needed, but I couldn't. Not with 24 other kids in the room. He is a sweetie. His twin went to public school with him. So things ha ve really changed in my classroom. I feel like the kids are finally progressing. Odd how one child can really have that much of an effect on everyone else.

Lori said...

DANA, so happy that your class is shaping up the way you wanted it to. Sorry about losing the twins to Public School. I'm sure you tried everything.

magpie said...

Good Morning Eagle Pals...
Breakfast at the nest....

lots of bird sounds in the area...

including WILD TURKEYS GOBBLING
mating season coming up for those big birds

xo

T-Bird said...

Good morning my friends.

Lori said...

Good Morning, MARGY & THELMA!
Hope today has wonderful things in store for you both.

magpie said...

G'Morning T
Lori, DanaMo...and all Eagle Pals...

Two ospreys at BWO and some corn stalky thing at BWE...

JudyE said...

GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDS

magpie said...

Thank you, Lori...and you and your parents and Kate and all the furbabies as well...

I hope your gardens grow lush and sweet this year....
at both places

magpie said...

workday for me....
moving in that direction..

"See You" from work in awhile

Best Wishes for a Good Day, to All

xoxo ☺ ♥

T-Bird said...

DanaMo-that is so funny about the dogs getting up when you rolled over. There are times in the morning when I know if I move the least little bit Buddy will get up. Isn't that funny.

T-Bird said...

Thanks, you too LORI.

Sandi said...

Good morning Dana, Lori, Margy, Judy, and Thelma! Boy, did I sleep late this morning!! Happy Saturday!!

T-Bird said...

Best wishes for your day too MAGPIE.

T-Bird said...

It was warm enough last night not to start the fire. This morning it is really chilly and I'm having no luck getting it started. :(

Sandi said...

Hoda, hope your wrist feels better today and you feel no new aches and pains. Sometimes the 2nd day after a fall/injury is worse than the first. BTW, any idea what the bulbs are yet? Are they still doing OK? How are things with your American brother and sister?

Dana, I'm with you. I just can't wait for the warm weather. Spring is always much chillier here b/c we're close to the ocean. Saw the 3 month forecast for Delmarva on FB yesterday - they're saying warmer than average. We'll see.

Thelma, I know what you mean about laying very still in bed in the AM. From 5:30 on, if I don't stay in one position, Bella is up like a shot! And then, so am I!

Lori, no plans for us for tomorrow -we'll go out to dinner somewhere. Not sure if Kevin will be home or not. He has been very reclusive lately - he and his boyfriend broke up (not Kevin's idea) but he really doesn't talk about it. Had to come right out and ask him to even find out.

Jo, has Michael already left to go to Christine's? Her gall bladder surgery is Monday, right? How is his speech coming along? Has he talked about Haiti in June??

Wanda, saw that great family photo with the bunny ears on FB last night! Looks like everyone had a fun time at GG's!

It's supposed to be warmer today; maybe a trip to the local eagle nest or just some fresh air and bird watching somewhere.

Prayers for all the needs on our blog, today and every day!

Sandi said...

Looks like feeding time for the chicks! Lots of peeping!

DanaMo said...

Yes Thelma the slightest movement and they think "food"! grrr....

Lori-I did try everything I could and I am comfortable with that, even though I am sad. We just don't have the resources in Catholic schools, or any small school for that matter, that the public school has for special ed students.

Well I think I am going to attempt a run. And of course Boomer will go with me. I hope he behaves. I have a hard time with him, but I feel guilty going out and not taking him he loves it so much. Even if I try to take him just once around the block, he will put his butt down in the road when we get back to the house! Dang smart dog! Off I go...

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Funny you should be talking about pets getting you up this morning.

Same routine here . . . If I do not move, I MIGHT get a little more time before George insists on being fed. But he is also tuned in to hearing others in the house, and Kathryn is up and about very early on weekdays. She is usually doing the same on weekends, and George does take cues from her.

Janet said...

good morning to all!

thank you for the compliments on miss lorelei. i thought the pix made an adorable avatar, but i do have a biased opinion!!!

JUDYE: so glad they found the child. i lost chelsea once when she was 2, horrible horrible moments til she was found.

LORI: i always end up as wet as they are. i put on shorts and a tank top and climb in the tub with them....

lol. talking about dogs waking you up, Scout woke me up with morning with an ear lick and a head on my neck.....

DANAMO: i am certain you did everything to appease the parents/students .... the old adage you can't please everyone comes to mind here.

HODA: hope today dawns with your injuries improving

its cloudy but dry here. funny to have a day where i don't have to rush anywhere in particular. plenty to do though.

hope everyone has a great day!!!

grannyblt said...

Morning all.

Isn't it funny how our pets seem to know if we are awake and not moving? Maybe our breathing changeds. If I don't respond to Williams march over my boday, he gets on the nightstand and starts knocking things to the floor. I don't even leave a glass of water there anymore because he knows that is the trigger.

I am off in a while for another birding trip. Not as extensive as originally planned as my birding buddy and I are about birded out, sad to say. And besides we are both tired and it is still earlyish in the morning.

grannyblt said...

sorry for all of those mispellings, I obviously didn't proofread...

stronghunter said...

Brought this over from my FB page. It is really violent. A hawk flies into an eagle nest while the eagle is brooding. The hawk does not survive. Rus posted it on FB for me.

Hawk vs Eagle

Duke Farms Eagle Cam

That hawk did not stand a chance. Wonder why it flew in like that with an adult eagle in the nest? It does show you what kind of danger little eaglets might face.

Sandi said...

Can't see exactly what it is and didn't see any new food delivered, but Shep seems to be de-furring or de-feathering something. Maybe the rabbit that has been there? Also can't tell if he is feeding the chicks or just himself, but they sure are watching him.

Sandi said...

The whole family is in the nest now. Belle is at 12 and Shep in the middle of the nest. Chicks are focused on dad though Belle is trying to feed one.

Sandi said...

Belle is feeding one chick. Shep appears to be feeding the other. Such good parents!!

stronghunter said...

Well, my link seems to be to the live feed at Duke Farms. Interesting, but not what I was trying to do.

Sandi said...

Good morning Shirley. When I clicked on your link, it took me to the video of the hawk and the eagle. Must admit, I didn't watch the whole thing - too graphic, but I got the ida!

Sandi said...

Belle just stole what was left of that rabbit carcass right away from Shep! =)

And off he went - guess she was letting him know that his services were no longer required!

stronghunter said...

Yes, I went back and tried it again. Yes, it is very violent. I don't know what happened the first time I clicked on the link.

I understand why you might not want to watch the whole thing, Sandi. Think what would have happened if the eggs had hatched. Not pretty.

Sandi said...

And Shep is back with grass.

Sandi said...

Shep took off and came back with even more grass! Chicks are now completely covered! =)

Sandi said...

OMG, anyone who opens the live cam right about now will think the chicks have been stolen!! I can hear them but not see them! So funny!

paula eagleholic said...

LOL, I see a chicklet head peaking out of the fluff!

Looks like the eagles captured the easter bunny's assistant!

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, OK, they have been passing around the easter bunny...thanks for the commentary.

I watched the hawk and eagle video...it was from Duke Farms...I know people here have watched that cam before...and the 2 eggs hatched!

paula eagleholic said...

Granny, talking about dogs knowing when you are awake...Nugz and Boo used to wake me up as soon as the alarm went off...if you didn't get up shortly thereafter, Boo would stand on top of my and start licking me in the face.

Now Nick, he is very laid back. He doesn't get off the bed until I get out of it...doesn't bug me to get up or anything.

paula eagleholic said...

Very happy to report that the basement is pretty much done! It looks like a basement again! John rendered the finally cleaning and arranging to it yesterday. He and the gkids are going to camp out in the basement tomorrow night.

paula eagleholic said...

It feels pretty springlike here today...going to try and get some yardwork done today, too. Gotta finish cleaning as well. Heading to the Ott House for dinner and the band afterwards tonight.

paula eagleholic said...

I see another head poking thru now :)

Belle doing some wing and tail stretches.

Chicks are peeing for breakfast...looks like it's going to be bunny...great view of the feeding right now.

paula eagleholic said...

OMG, they are peeping for breakfast, LOL

paula eagleholic said...

Poop shoot!

paula eagleholic said...

I think Shamrock is on the right and Hedgie is on the left

paula eagleholic said...

Now shamrock is in the front and Hedgie is in the back. Both are getting fed, but I think Shamrock has gotten more :)

paula eagleholic said...

Hey we have an S & H, like S&H green stamps...anyone else remember those.

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING...
Shep has made an Easter Basket for the chicklets with all that grass:)

So wonderful to be able to see our little family again!

paula eagleholic said...

Shamie just did a poop shoot right out of the nest.

Happy 2 wk Birthday to Hedgie today!

Sandi said...

Paula, I don't even try to tell them apart anymore! Good for you! As long as I see both getting fed, I'm good!

paula eagleholic said...

Hedgie is slightly bigger. Now Shamie is still up front and Hedgie is in the back. Shamie is crawling out of the cup.

paula eagleholic said...

Belle calling out a little...something must have been flying too close

paula eagleholic said...

Chicks are in the cup, Belle standing next to the cup.

Mema Jo said...

Good morning! With our fluff covered eaglets it sure did give me a jolt to see an empty nest when I opened the cam.

Happy to see all of you preparing for tomorrow - We will be going out to Jenny's with the rest of the family, Lori.

Sandi - yes to all your questions. The speech is slow but getting better. Still has 2 sessions a week over at the hospital. Monday is Christine's surgery - they will do an exploratory first to see if there were and nicks in the bile duct during the first surgery... then out comes the gallbladder. This is going to be interesting.

Time for a cup of coffee - incidentally my 2 cats will sit there and keep an eye on you sleeping - very patient felines I have.

BBL

glo said...

Good morning everyone. Continuing today with yesterdays headache. Think I will spend some time on the sofa today to shake this thing. OK had a longer message but it is too messed up and i don't want to retype. Just wishing all of you a good day.

Mema Jo said...

One thing I'll say is that those 2 are NOT going to stay down in that egg cup much longer. Therefore I wish Shep would soon start building up the crib rails from 6-9.

Both osprey are atill at BWO platform

paula eagleholic said...

chicks are out of the cup, catching some rays

magpie said...

I remember S&H and probably can still find some of those in my parents' papers Paula

but I was too little to remember what we might have actually "gotten" with them

Enjoy the Ott House,
if I misspelled it would be
OUT house, no typos allowed!

Lots of fine folks here this morning... !!
Hello !

magpie said...

Oh super delighted
have not seen the kestel in the nest boxs for days.l..
now a kestrel is in roost !

magpie said...

now on its windowsill...

magpie said...

Yepper, nailbiting time with the Royal Babies already !
frisky little rascals for sure

magpie said...

LOL
we have a tree hugger in the nest
a baby tree hugger

Lolly said...

Good morning! Wow, all of a sudden the wind picked up. Down with the sound!

Had a real thunder boomer in the night. We got 6 tenths of an inch. Will take that! Jack said the other day..."Do you remember when we used to have several days of cloudy, rainy days?" No more! All we get occasionally are fast moving thunder storms.

Time to eat some breakfast and to get busy with house cleaning and cooking for tomorrow.

Had to laugh when I first brought up the cam. There was adult in the egg cup and the two babes out of the egg cup. Now they are plotzed...snoring away!

Have a great day!

stronghunter said...

S&H Green Stamps--We got our first laundry hamper with those when we first got married.

Oh my, those little ones are getting around.

Jo, George watches me, too, but he is sitting inches from my face on my pillow. Sometimes, he pokes his cold nose against my closed eyelid. Rather close observation.

stronghunter said...

Poof.

Little ones alone.

Mema Jo said...

I tried to leave a short message on the OD forum - can't record it. There was a comment about liking the new format?????

Anyone know anything....?



Panda News

stronghunter said...

They are looking around at the big world and at one another.

Mema Jo said...

Shirley - can you make a comment over on the forum and if so =- how did youi do it?

stronghunter said...

Let me try, Jo.

Lolly said...

Annie used to pat our faces gently with her paw. And, other times get on my chest and just stare.

Annie does not get on our bed anymore. We have a very high four poster bed. She can not jump to it. She used to get on the cedar chest and jump, but no more.

Look how those babies have grown. Wow!

stronghunter said...

Posted, Jo. Can you see it?

stronghunter said...

Poop shoot! Almost made me duck!

stronghunter said...

I get face pats, too, Lolly, and little cat noises...not exactly meows, just cat greetings, and meows, too.

Chattering eaglets.

Shep arrives.

Lolly said...

Shep into the nest. Now he is going to chow, but think Hedgie and Sham would like some, too.

stronghunter said...

They are very active, and making me nervous.

stronghunter said...

Yes, I think the children are singing for their lunch.

stronghunter said...

They are making their way across the nest to daddy.

stronghunter said...

Feed me, Daddy!!

stronghunter said...

These two little guys are quite the beggars.

Mema Jo said...

That little one is so serious!

Shirley - I am going to sign out - then see what is going on - I can NOT see you comment.... I'll let yoiu iknow!

stronghunter said...

Oh, parents really need to work on the crib rails over between 6:00 and 9:00.

stronghunter said...

Several comments have posted since mine, Jo.

Mema Jo said...

OK Shirley - I just needed to refresh browser Thanks for checking

Mema Jo said...

Lunch time!

BBL

stronghunter said...

Okay, good, Jo.

Feeding. They were not going to give up until they got lunch. Kind of like our pets.

stronghunter said...

Satisfied little chirps now.

stronghunter said...

RE our pets:

Sometimes I fuss at George and push him over the side of the bed, but he comes right back. I don't think I scare him one bit.

stronghunter said...

Shep trying to keep the little ones under control. Not working.

Costume Lady said...

He's calling Belle for help!

paula eagleholic said...

Chicks are really peeping...adult doing some wing flapping..trying to scare something off??

Costume Lady said...

He acts like he is stuck on something???

paula eagleholic said...

OMG, that was an intruder!!

Did you see the eagle fall off the left side and under the nest.

stronghunter said...

What just happened? Was that Belle?

paula eagleholic said...

big clunk in the tree...maybe Belle is back.

paula eagleholic said...

Chicks are flattened out...

Still some adult calls

Costume Lady said...

Someting is not wanted in the nest area, for sure! Scares me!

stronghunter said...

I saw it, Paula. Looked like it went all the way to the ground, then something landed on the cam.

Costume Lady said...

Chicklets are lying still, like they were told!:)

stronghunter said...

Times like this, it would be nice to have another cam to see wide view.

paula eagleholic said...

The eagle came in from the left and into the nest, Shep was right on it...the cam stuck for a moment, and I could see the other eagle tumbling off at about the 11 spot, and down beside the tree, regained control and flew under the nest.

paula eagleholic said...

Other eagle was probably wanting some of those vittles in the nest....

stronghunter said...

I think Shep is on the alert and I expect Belle is above the nest. Little ones are quiet. Calls!

stronghunter said...

Little head just popped up for a moment.

Lydia Price said...

Seems like intruder was just at the nest and dad defensive

paula eagleholic said...

I thought it was Belle at first, also, coming in with food. But when Shep rushed it, I knew it wasn't.

Lydia Price said...

oh--now that I read back I see you all got all of that..I was on OC commenting when all of that happened

paula eagleholic said...

Cake is out of the oven and cooling, Kids went to go watch a movie...going to head outside for awhile...

stronghunter said...

Fortunately, it did not take much for Shep to get it out the nest.

paula eagleholic said...

Look at that little rascal sitting up :) They are so darned cute!

stronghunter said...

Ready to help Dad guard the nest.

Lydia Price said...

I can't believe how big they are getting! and yes they are so darn cute!

Mema Jo said...

Oh we so don't need any DRAMA
I was watching the attack and that tumble from the nest was awesome! You are da'Man Shep.

Mema Jo said...


Deb's Intruder Video

Costume Lady said...

If we weren't sure of him before, we sure are NOW!

Mema Jo said...

Time to get up and start doing some things

Praying for safety of our eagle family

JudyE said...

Home for lunch had to pick up a ring that I had made at the jewelry's and off course its a eagle ring I had a extra pendant that was a ear ring and with alll my new threaders was to cluttered on the ear so I had him make it to a ring He only charged me 30 for the gold and to make it not bad I think and then he didn't charge me to fix one ring that had a sharp something on it that kept cutting my finger part of the filigree was sharp

Lydia Price said...

Shep is AWESOME!

JudyE said...

boy they sure can move fast alread over to where she was thinking someone had food I guess

JudyE said...

The nest looks so much cleaner today covered everything up I guess HUH

JudyE said...

paula eagleholic said...

Getting warm out there when you are raking!

Presently 59° here

paula eagleholic said...

Chicks are laying at Dad's feet eating.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Good afternoon my eagle budlets.

Lolly said...

Hi Lydia and Sharon! Ok, just got on, heard the crying from across the room....now where are the babes? In front of adult, I hope!!

Lolly said...

OMG!!! I have had the cam on but cleaning house. Missed all the drama!

Lolly said...

Just watched the video of the intruder. Always have to wonder if it was just one of the former eaglets dropping in. Shep did great!

paula eagleholic said...

Wow, one chick at the 5 spot, the other one halfway there...got a bunch of little explorers.

paula eagleholic said...

The sun is nice and warm out there today...65° here now.

paula eagleholic said...

Got 2 gardens done out front and all the leaves from the neighbors oak tree raked up...hate that tree!

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, parent in the nest at noon. Can only see the feet. Kids are plotzed.

paula eagleholic said...

My daffodils are on the verge of blooming. Might get to cut a couple tomorrow.

She is BACK The Lady

Bobbi alerted me on FB - Sure hope that Chrissy knows!

paula eagleholic said...

Alarm calling. Kids are plotzed.

paula eagleholic said...

More alarm calls, Belle in the middle of the nest calling out and looking around.

Can hear other eagle calls.

paula eagleholic said...

Kids are flatlets...still asleep.

Lolly said...

Intruder is apparently still around.

Lolly said...

How can I get work done?

Hoda said...

Good Friday to all. Have not read back. Cousin in Egypt died of kidney failure today on Good Friday of all days!!! It seems to run in the family this kidney failure. He was a kind and generous man. The family is in turbulence. On the phone a lot. Burial could not happen today, as is the tradition, will be buried with first light tomorrow.
Blessed Be.

Lolly said...

So very sorry, Hoda. I know that for you that it is very hard to be away from family. Please know your eagle family is here for you!

((hugs))

God bless you and your family, Hoda.

Just doing a quick nest check before finishing up some chores. BBL.

Hoda said...

It is Saturday! Gracious me he died on Good Friday and I have not switched days yet!
Thank you SHIRLEY and LOLLY.
Thank you JO for the video of the intruder close to nest episode. Pretty cool to see Ma Belle descend into nest and then take off dropping below nest.
I will go for a walk without iPhone
I need a break
I truly love my Eagle Family.
Thank You.

Sandi said...

Holy cannoli - there's one eagle chick in the cup and the other all the way at the other end of the nest!! Hedgie, I presume, is the one on the loose!? Seriously???!!!

Sandi said...

Hoda, so sorry to hear about your cousin in Egypt dying.

Lolly, that intruder was an adult, not a juvenile.

Paula, wish it was 65 here! Spring takes so long to arrive this close to the Atlantic! Maybe 50 outside today and there is some wind.

Not a great birding day. No action at the eagle nest and it was downright cold right on the water. Then we went to James Farm, an ecological preserve about 10 minutes from our house. There are 3 osprey platforms set up on the property. Only 1 was occupied - we watched the pair and listened to them but couldn't get close enough to the stand (it's in the marsh and the ground was very soggy) for Denny to get any photos.

Need a cup of hot tea!

Lolly said...

Sandi, saw that it was an adult. Some of our babies have become full fledged adults.

yes, what is up with the eaglets. One is sound alseep on the close edge and one getting all the food. LOL The one getting the meal just did a poop shoot, narrowly missing the other.

Lolly said...

We are about to split!!!!

Heads up!!!

Lolly said...

Sandi, sorry about your weather. 76 here and sunshiney! Have the house open as I do my cleaning.
