Happy St Patty's Day and welcome little chick!!

WV sUSAn said...

A new chirpy chick AND a pip.
woohooooooo

Sandi said...

Thanks Steve for the new St. Patrick's Day thread and thanks Susan for the call over!

Steve, great shot of chick #1 and the egg with Shep! I agree, time for some food for this new baby!!!

WV sUSAn said...

Thanks for the new thread, Steve!

WV sUSAn said...

Sandi, I'm a little surprised that Shep didn't deliver some dinner yesterday.

Sandi said...

Susan, I expected food last night as well - or this morning for sure!! He was SO great at delivering food last nesting season - not so great at feeding it to the chicks at first, but great at bringing food to the nest. Instead, he showed up with fresh grass this morning! DUH!! Hopefully, Belle will come through!

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Thanks for the new thread, Steve. And thanks for the call-over, Susan.

We do need food for this little one.

paula eagleholic said...

I see a nice pip in the second egg in Steve's pic

Costume Lady said...

GOOD MORNING ☼
We are so blessed today!
I don't see any fish...thought the nest would be full of them. Maybe tomorrow the feeding will start.

Have a Blessed Sunday~♥~

stronghunter said...

Checked the Weather Channel. Looks like there is snow nearby. Hope it does not amount to much.

Lori said...

Thanks STEVE for the new thread!

Thak you sUSAn for the call over and congrats on your feather!

How's it going at the Beach, Paula?

Sandi said...

Shepherdstown, WV weather:

NOT chick-friendly weather! =(

stronghunter said...

Hi Paula!

Went back and looked. I see that pip now, too.

Costume Lady said...

Reading back, I see we all have the
same concerns about food. Chicklet will be OK for a day or two without food. Not to worry...it's just such fun to watch them eating:)

WV sUSAn said...

Sandi, thanks for the weather update.

glo said...

So we have a second pip. Maybe the plan is to wait for hatch 2 and feed them both at the same time. Who knows. I don't have the cam on right now BUT if a fish arrives please note it here BOLD would help. I will try then to get first feeding videoed. Judy might be off today and she will catch it. Come on little eggbert and bobble head and FISH!!!!

Janet said...

Good morning! Another Pip Pip Hurrah Day! Maybe another baby today!!!!

I wil check in as I can. We finally got started on installing the "invisible" fence yesterday....a lot of wire to string around the yard...YIKES...thru the fence, around the fence, trenches to dig...and bowling tonight.

Once the line is strung, the worst part will be done I think.

Light, love and hugs to all!

Costume Lady said...

1 to 3 inches of snow tomorrow...not good, but Belle and Shep can handle that (praying).
38° right now.

stronghunter said...

Well, Paula, I tried to give you a weather forecast based on what I read yesterday. Now, I will say that Margy mentioned snow prior to that. Just goes to show you. I should have listened to Margy.

It has been said that "April is the cruelest month." March can be pretty bad, too.

stronghunter said...

Hi Wanda,

Good morning!

paula eagleholic said...

That chick is just so precious!

Cold and cloudy...38 here this morning...but any day at the beach is a good day :)

Costume Lady said...

JANET, we are going to put an electric fence around our garden this year...I will probably be the first one to get shocked!

Our daughter had the invisable fence and it worked most of the time. Not 100%

Costume Lady said...

That's my favorite expression, Paula:)

Mema Jo said...

Good morning - nest looks great - Thanks for the new thread, Steve and for the great picture.
Going to be another day full of events

stronghunter said...

I will not try to plant just a few stalks of corn this year. That was a failure. The squirrels enjoyed the corn. We got none. There wasn't much. Didn't get tomatoes, either.

I have bought some lettuce seeds. Will try that. I would like to try potatoes.

I have never been able to raise tomatoes in this yard. I had a huge crop in Ohio. Did much canning, even. What few tomatoes I have gotten here have been eaten by squirrels or birds.

I did have some parsley last year. It was happiest when the weather got cold.

stronghunter said...

I still need to get my do done. Was going to do it yesterday, and never made an appointment. Wonder what I was doing? (In addition to taking George to the vet.)

WV sUSAn said...

Shirley, potatoes are hard back work but it is sure nice to have fresh ones.

magpie said...

Good Eagle Watching Morning, Eagle Pals

There IS an osprey on the platform at Blackwater Osprey Cam ☺

magpie said...

Corn was always a dud for me,
Shirley, but I have had pretty good
fortune with tomatoes
and MEGAN FLOWERS ☺

magpie said...

Saw the little eaglet a short while ago and an egg roll and heard some cheepings too

That was nice....

stronghunter said...

I grew delicious potatoes in Ohio.

magpie said...

Fantastic Open Up Picture with the new thread....
Thanks Steve ! You know what makes our hearts sing

stronghunter said...

Figured corn might be a problem. It was fun to watch it grow.

magpie said...

And Thanks Susan for the Call Over

magpie said...

Oh it starts out like gangbusters, corn does...but we had corn blight and I barely got a few ears out of it, that's when I had a house
in Hedgesville town and lots of
room to plant....
I miss those days !!!

magpie said...

Precious Image on Googl today, I am not sure if it is animated or not

Happy Saint Patrick's Day, Everyone

magpie said...

The Pip on the egg in Steve's picture is bigger than the black
spot on Shep's Head ☺

magpie said...

Hope George is going better,
Shirley

I got tired and sore reading
about the invisible fence
installation at Janet's

magpie said...

Gee Whillikers that is one loud and low-flying plane !

stronghunter said...

I hope he is better, too, Margy. Kind of hard to tell with cats.

I thought I would try to sneak a pill into his food last night, yeah, that did not work. It was still in the uneaten food this morning, so I resorted back to the pill popper. It is such a small pill that it is a bit hard to pop.

stronghunter said...

Yes, I think that one buzzed the nest. Too bad it didn't drop a fish or two.

DanaMo said...

Shep was like, "what the h$#* was that?"

stronghunter said...

I have had lots of pill-popping experience with George. He has gotten two pills a day for quite a few years, but those are bigger and easier to handle.

magpie said...

I guess that other noise is a Crow?
And I hear baby eagle peeps

magpie said...

"Well I'd like to feed ya'
but there isn't anything here to pick from"

Nice view of the egg and chick
and Shep

Sandi said...

You can hear both chicks peeping! I could also see the chick in the egg working on that shell! Maybe today!! Where the heck is the food??? I'm not really worried, since I know #1 is fine for a day or two. But I'll just feel better when I see fish in the nest, esp. with the weather forecast.

magpie said...

Osprey is still at BWO;
Nice...

magpie said...

I'm thinking either Belle will return with something, OR,
when she returns Shep will go get some chow

I'm not worried either but it
will be fun to watch feedings ! ☺

Hi Sandi and all Morning Eagle Pals here

magpie said...

I guess I heard that second egglet peeping too, was trying to see movement but I can't say I could...
Good for you, Sandi !
Younger Eyes ☺

magpie said...

Could you squish up that pill and get it into George's food Shirley?

Also the term is Corn SMUT
not blight...that's what I had,
it was disgusting looking....

DanaMo said...

Yes, the nurishment they got from the egg lasts several days. When I hatch in the classroom they tell me they don't need to be fed for 2-3 days.

magpie said...

MIght be Tundra Swans we hear flying over... ???
can't say for sure at all,
could be local other things

magpie said...

Wowser, Sausage gravy and English Muffins was just delivered... ☺
It IS Breakfast time after all...
more like Brunch!

magpie said...

The Google Image IS animated on my lap top, little girls going up and down

DanaMo, sounds like all went well
with the Play...did you and your parents enjoy it ?

Lynne2 said...

Top o' the morn to ya!

I see that our little McChicklet is working hard to exit the confines of the egg!

magpie said...

G'Morning Lynne2
Nice Avater, don't think I told you that.

Tag You're IT -
I need to disappear for awhile...
am on call for work
NO James visit today :(
Big Super Waaaaaaaah !

ttfn ☺ ♥

Lolly said...

Top o' the morn to ya!

And the same to you, Lynne and to all!

Have been reading the paper and monitoring the cam. Saw the pip!! Wowser!! Now come on Belle, please deliver a big ol fish!

mariadangeloart said...

So is the chick's name officially
Hedgie?

stronghunter said...

I wasn't looking at the nest when the plane buzzed, but I heard it.

Lolly said...

Time to go eat a bite of breakfast and then leave for church. Have just a touch of green on. :)

stronghunter said...

Probably will just pop the pills into George. I don't want to waste them experimenting with putting them into food and have him reject it.

Lolly said...

Yes, the eaglet is Hedgie!

Sandi said...

Mornin' Lynne2! I like McChicklet. =) While I agree with Judie that giving a chick born today the name Paddy O Joy would remind me of that awful, sad nesting season, I think that a name starting with Mc is a good idea! I guess first we have to wait and see if he/she gets out of that egg today.

Yep Margy, I am going to disappear as well, though I will be sitting right here at my computer. I need to get this kid's IEP written!

Still waiting for that food delivery! The ugly weather is getting very close to the nest!! Wind has really picked up there. Still just gray and cold here in Bethany.

Later!

Sandi said...

Boy, that Hedgie is a feisty one!!! Wiggled his/her way out in front of Shep! Shep now looks like he's trying to find some food in the nest! Sure wish Belle would get back and quiet this youngin' down with some food!

Sandi said...

I think Shep just took off!!! Chick and egg are alone in the nest!!!

PattiO said...

Oh boy - Shep needs to get back there now! Seemed like he was digging all around looking for food but he's forgotten that he's the one who's suppose to bring the fish!

Sandi said...

OK, Shep is back and is covering up chick and egg! Good!!

PattiO said...

There he is! I could see that piece of straw in the upper part of the screen.

Sandi said...

I'm with ya PattiO!! That was scary - even 5 minutes uncovered is a long time in this wind and cold! Have to keep reminding myself that they know what they're doing! They know what they're doing! All is well!

PattiO said...

Yes, I think it's 'clicking' in his mind now but he'll have to wait for Belle to come back. I do wish the weather would get warmer. Winter doesn't want to let go yet.

Sandi said...

I think Shep is still in egg sitting mode - no food needed! Needs to get into babysitting mode and remember that babies need to be fed or they make a lot of noise!

OK, schoolwork!

Mema Jo said...

The last switch was around 7:22am when Belle left - She should be back around lunch.......... with lunch I hope.

BBL

WV sUSAn said...

Sooooo agree. Shep needs to get his "fishing" instinct kicked in for the season.

Great to see so many on the blog this morning!

Lolly said...

I'm off but first, if the chick hatches today, how about McRiner?

Later Gators!

PattiO said...

I could hear the other chick peeping when Shep was up digging around. Come on Miss Belle! Come back with a nice fish!

NatureNut said...

Hooray, Hooray!!!!!!
Baby Chicklet is here and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

hedgiesbaby said...

Happy St Paddy's Day everyone!! Am trying to keep up on the blog and have been reading last years blogs too. My eyes will be tired by this evening. I saw where someone mentioned Riner or McRiner or something starting with Mc. Just a suggestion....Riner was moms married name which she mentioned several times wanting to change back to her maiden name.....it was McCann. fitting, eh?

stronghunter said...

McCann!! I like that.

stronghunter said...

Hollering and fly-out by Shep. Egg and chick alone.

stronghunter said...

Come on, Belle!!

stronghunter said...

Eagle in nest. Belle? Yes!!!

Sandi said...

Belle is back and I hope she told that man of hers to get his butt out and do some fishing!!

stronghunter said...

Please bring food, Shep.

Mema Jo said...

No Food :(

Sandi said...

Christie, McCann would be great!! I like it!! =)

Mema Jo said...

Sure looks as though our 2nd hatch is not too far away
The pip looked long!

glo said...

We human eaglet grandparents LOL are interesting folks. The cam at Alcoa in Davenport very near my home also had a hatch yesterday about 3 hours after our little bobblehead. This morning fish are almost falling out of the sky # fish sit in the nest BUT the first feeding has not happened YET That nest also has a second unhatched egg. No one watching that nest is worried about food or fish or hungry chick although it too begs and peeps LOTS. I say this because I need to remind myself to Trust the eagles. Just thought I would share. Having said that I still say come home Belle and start lining the nest with fish because WE NEED THEM THERE LOL.

mariadangeloart said...

Didn't it look like she was feeding Hedgie while her back was to us?

mariadangeloart said...

LOL Glo! So true! :)

WV sUSAn said...

Christie, I love, love McCann!

mariadangeloart said...

I like McCann also!

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Good afternoon eagle buds! I have been lurking and watching all morning and am anxiously waiting for someone to feed that baby! I think I have PTSD from when we lost POJ! LOL! I am sure the eagles know what they are doing but I need them to FEED THIS BABY!!! LOL!! Hope everyone is having a great rainy Sunday. It is gonna be a lazy day around here.

Oh yeah, Linda, thank you for the link for the flash browser for my iPhone. It works wonderfully and I am sure I will be buying it when the trial runs out. I love being able to peak at the nest where ever I am!

I hear peeping! Looks like the second egg is gonna hatch today. <3

Lynne2 said...

I like McChicklet, it has a fun ring too it! I had actually thought the "Mc" part because of Lynn's maiden name and thought of McCann altogether, but then I got to thinking the Lynn herself might think naming both chicks in her honor would be a bit much?

Meanwhile back at the fishless nest...ARRGGG!

Sandi said...

I agree with PattiO that it has now clicked with Shep that his role has shifted. He did great last year with food deliveries - no reason to think he won't do fine this year.

Glo, thanks for the reminder that the eagles know what they need to do. I'm sure of that. My worry is the weather that's headed to the nest. I doubt that Belle or Shep have a weather app on their iphones but we know that bead weather will arrive soon. I'd like to see chick #1 get some food before the weather gets there in case Belle has to keep them covered up.

stronghunter said...

But the eaglet will not remain a "chicklet," Lynne. We need a name appropriate for an adult eagle.

stronghunter said...

Trying to think of St. Patrick's day eagle names:

Pat
Patrick
Shamrock

stronghunter said...

Saw that too, Maria. Not sure what she was doing.

Lynne2 said...

I like Shamrock!

Lynne2 said...

nice look at the exit hole!

Jeannie C said...

I like Shamrock!

Lynne2 said...

hey there, welcome Jeannine!

Eagle-Eyed's Sissy said...

Shamrock would be okay but Patty or Patrick has already been used. And I agree Lynn might think it a bit much to name both eaglets after her. Gosh I sure do miss her with all the eggcitement. Love you guys!

NatureNut said...

ESPN! I just made up a Shamrock juvie eagle for the occasion! Whatever name we dicide on using, these chicks will be here in honor of our Lynn! ☺ ☺ ♥ ♥

Jeannie C said...

Thanks for the welcome. I am new to the blog.

Lynne2 said...

Wow Loretta that's really cool! How do you do that kind of stuff?

Lynne2 said...

Glad to have you Jeannine! What part of the world do you hail from?

mariadangeloart said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
mariadangeloart said...

I really, really like Shamrock! Someone suggested it on the other feed and since they honored Lynn with Hedgie it would be nice if we agreed on Shamrock for them. Just a suggestion....

Jeannie C said...

I am from Hernshaw, WV, near Charleston.

Sandi said...

I like Shamrock as well and get Lynne's point that naming both for Lynn might be too much. I also agree with Maria that we would be playing nice to agree with the folks on the OC site about a name.

Hi Jeanine and WELCOME!!

OK, back to IEP writing - I've only managed to complete the first page so far! =(

Jeannie C said...

@ Sandi - thank you.

mariadangeloart said...

I think i might have gotten it wrong, they posted that someone "on the blog" suggested Shamrock, so that's us and now looking back at posts I see that Stronghunter suggested it. I like it.

paula eagleholic said...

Hey Sandi...might be some snow and sleet headed your way

Was out trimming the fig tree...had to stop...inside washing dishes now

NatureNut said...

Minor error-----I had deleted the N from ESPN, but it showed up anyway~~~Boo.
Lynne, You can combine parts of pics in photo programs. Used Photoshop. Open the first pic, Eddie Eagle,open 2nd pic, Shamrock.Draw a dotted line around Shamrock, under Edit choose Copy and slide it over. It usually puts a dotted box around it so you can adjust size, then click!
I am really going to try and wwatch this as much as possible today, but I've got to vook the corned beef, cabbage, & potatoes and work on some cool pics from Rainy Day Tuesday.

stronghunter said...

Welcome, Jeannie C.

Lydia Price said...

Well darn, I just posted on the old thread instead of this now one. OY!

I just got home from church and lunch. I see dear Belle on the nest but no fish yet? (i told Susan on cam chat I was on my way with a bucket of fish, she was bringing ladder. Hedgie will son be 24 hours old and must be hungry. Now I will begin my fretting.

And bobble #2 on the way. I like Shamrock too :) ᕙ(`▽´)ᕗ

stronghunter said...

Oh, big hole in the egg!

stronghunter said...

Belle is doing that beak thing again. Wants to feed the little one.

stronghunter said...

Hi, Maria, I am Shirley on the OC posts.

stronghunter said...

Please, Shep!

Sandi said...

Belle is up and "practicing feeding" with the chicklet. Watching this brings back sad memories. I just wish some food would show up - this chick wants to eat food!

Oops, I see that it's Jeannie, not Jeanine - sorry!

Shep, please come home with food!!!

NatureNut said...

Is baby getting real food that's out of camera view?? Or saliva?

glo said...

sigh sigh I want to celebrate. What a difference a fish would make. Belle gone now

stronghunter said...

There will soon be two little ones to feed. Belle is getting anxious.

Lydia Price said...

Oh this breaks my heart...

NCSuzan said...

Would also like to see some food for the baby!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

paula eagleholic said...

Welcome Jeannie...and welcone back Maria

DanaMo said...

Last year there were times when there were tons of fish in the pantry. I'm sure there is no reason to stress. They do this naturally.

Hoda said...

Good morning for it is still morning here!

Paula said a couple years back that it is fluid exchange between Belle and the chick when beeks touch and there is no actual food in the nest. I think this is what Belle was doing earlier and continues to do...

Jeannie C said...

@ stronghunter and paula - thank you.

stronghunter said...

:)

Lolly said...

Home from church! Welcome Jeannie to the best blog ever! I hail from Texas but have been to the nest two times now and have met many on the blog personally.

I like McCann but agree with a lot of you on how Lynn would feel. I like Shamrock a lot...Hedgie and Shamrock, sounds good. He could be Shamrock McCann..Sham for short. lol

Jeannie C said...

@ Lolly - thank you.

WV sUSAn said...

Hoda, it's moisture from Belle's nares. Salt water.

Lolly said...

Oh, Hedgie is talking...wants food. See the big crack in the egg.

hedgiesbaby said...

Wow.....why did I just do this to myself. Just read througb 4/25 and 4/26 of last year. 1/2 box of tissues later, I MUST get off my butt and get a few things done. 4th load of laundry going in, hubby has the corned beef,potatoes and cabbage cooking in the crockpot and I am off to the grocery store. BBL!!

And you guys are right....Mom would not want all of the glory...maybe McCann can be another year! I like Shamrock :)

Sandi said...

I hear Shep in the tree. If he had a fish, he would have landed with it so ...

Lolly said...

Shep is in the tree. Shep go get food!!!!

DanaMo said...

I think if Belle was stressed she would be calling out for Shep.

Lolly said...

I do not like watching this kind of "feeding".

WV sUSAn said...

Belle really, really needs to start calling LOUDLY to Shep to get him going.

NatureNut said...

I keep picturing in my mind the fishing ramp down from the nest that Frank and I finally found last year! Hope Shep finds something there soon.

stronghunter said...

Lolly, how do you know Shep is in the tree??

Lolly said...

He jiggled the cam...twice.

stronghunter said...

Calls--I am assuming that was Belle?

movin said...



**************************

GooD MorninG,

Happy St. PatricK's DaY,

aLL !!

**************************

I see Happy Hatch Day is here for one chick and nearly here for the second.

I don't think we need worry about food "yet", because with their yolk sack and the fluids that Belle is giving the chick, it can live for a couple of days.

But I too wish Shep would show up with a couple of rabbits or a giant carp or a few perch like another eagle we knew did as soon as a chick hatched.

C(°ٿ°)D Jim

WV sUSAn said...

Yes, Shirley, that was Belle.

Hi Jim, we all know that but you know how mommas worry. hahaha

Jeannie C said...

Does daddy feed the babies crop milk like mommy does?

Lolly said...

That is a good question that I can not answer, Jeannie. Have only seen Belle feed this way.

WV sUSAn said...

Jeannie, I have not witnessed the male dropping water from nares but assume he would be capable.

AZPatti said...

Happy St. Pat's day, Momsters and Dadsters!

It's good to see little Hedgie this morning. Can't wait to meet the new mcchicklet. Shamrock is a wonderful choice!

Sandi said...

IEP is written!!! =)

Jeannie, last year was Shep's first season as an eagle parent. He started delivering fish to the nest very quickly - LOTS of them. But it was a warmer spring and maybe fish were easier to catch? IDK.

However, it took him the longest time before he understood that he could/should feed the chicks. At first, he would stand in the nest and feed himself, but feed nothing to the chicks! Eventually, he caught onto helping Belle with the feedings.

I'm sure he'll come through just fine this year, but I sure wish it would happen sooner than later!!!

paula eagleholic said...

I have faith that Shep will produce a meal for the chicks. It is important for them to be kept warm right now.

magpie said...

hedgiesbaby Christie;
It's completely understandable why you do these things....going back over painful moments of the past...

We are With You...and have done the same from time to time

magpie said...

Welcome Back Movin' Jim
A sight for sore eyes :)



Red shouldered hawk in the distance at NCTC

magpie said...

and Welcome Jeannie C, another
West Virginian ☺

And Welcome back, Maria, and AZPatti...


now, I would like to see Bird Girl today also ☺

there's cheeping to be heard another hatchin' to be watched

Sandi said...

I am going to leave the laptop and run to CVS for toothpaste. Maybe this is a case of a watched pot never boiling and, if I leave, Shep will arrive with lunch!! =) Plus, this is becoming too anxiety-producing for me to watch!

BBIALW!

magpie said...

Glad that man of yours is
fixin' up some vittles, Christie...
(( Hugs ♥ ))

AZPatti said...

Thanks, Margy!

magpie said...

On the bright side,
at least Belle is giving us more
views of the clutch

NatureNut said...

Someone, Shep?, seems to be squealing from a little bit away from the nest.

Jeannie C said...

@ magpie - thank you my fellow West Virginian! Best state in the Union!

NatureNut said...

Yes, maybe that's the RSH I heard & of course crows are around.

magpie said...

Can't argue with you on that point, Jeannie..though our many friends here also from their best states and provinces also ☺♥

Loretta: Maybe Frank could play like Christie's Hubby and do up the vooking ...
yes, I hear that RSH often at NCTC, AND, the mother RSH at Swinging Bridge was on the roost
a few days ago...3rd year I'll be watching that nest

magpie said...

time for me to do something....
not sure what but it will be here
and the nest will be UP BIG

ttfn ♥

Hoda said...

MARGY Glad to see the Provinces there too!! O CANADA! LOL!!!

I ♥ US!

Some pretty AWESOME FOLKS come from WEST, BY GOD, VIRGINIA we must admit.

Hoda said...

HEDGIESBABY {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

Lydia Price said...

I have tired leaving computer for awhile and doing other things in hopes that I would come back to find food delivery..now working...yet

Oh look--second egg has a big crack now--almost cracked all the way open!

Lydia Price said...

Belle trying to give the chick moisture again. Come on food delivery, please....

Lynne2 said...

oh wow the Shamrock McChick is really working on getting out!

magpie said...

That eggbert is moving
and baby is Jonesin' to get outta there !

Hi HOda ! And Lydia

magpie said...

We are one large and wonderful national and International Fellowship

Hoda said...

I saw the second egg crack move, widen, just now.
Yes LYDIA it would be nice to have a food delivery.
Egg/Hedgie roll.

Lynne2 said...

Jeannine, you will find us using words like "vook" which is cook, or "deet" which is deer. We all make typos and they become part of our blogcabulary!

magpie said...

Lydia...I am stopping and starting on everything I am trying to do also ☺
Pretty nice all this occurs on a week-end though, eh?
Not that everyone has this day off, however

magpie said...

When Belle sits down I get up,
When Belle gets up I sit down!

Hoda said...

Building the railing higher and higher!

AZPatti said...

I am so thankful this is happening on my weekend!

Hoda said...

LOL MARGY ♥ you and Belle dancing...

Lynne2 said...

oh good, me too. Trying to get things done while anxiously awaiting the new arrival and a food arrival is exhausting!

Judie said...

Hi everyone,

Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Have been watching on and off. Was a treat to see the second babe rolling its incubator all around trying to get out to see the world.

I know the eagles know what they are doing but not feeding the eaglet for almost 25 hours is unsettling for me.

Going to distract myself for a while.

Lydia Price said...

Yes,,,we are all in the same boat MAGPIE and HODA. And yes, very nice (for me) all this is happening on a weekend when I am off. Now it will be perfect WHEN we get a nice big hunk of meat, fish, carrion, or even a hot dog on that nest :)

NatureNut said...

Heard noise above!!!!! Hope it wasn't wind

AZPatti said...

Sounds like Shep's in the attic.

Jeannie C said...

Yes, we are all one great big collection of "the best states" that make up this awesome USA! Thank God I live here!

Hoda said...

Camera shake...did Pa take off? Not sure...I hear a noise ont eh cam and a slight shake again. Maybe he is doing a jig being as how it is St Patrick's and all!!!

Lydia Price said...

and JUDIE, I think even Belle is getting a bit anxious about no food to give lil Hedgie. They know what to do BUT they also know they have to stock the pantry. Hunting must not be good today.

Someone call the gate guard at NCTC and ask him to slip some meat over there by the nest (just kidding)

Hoda said...

Good to see you JUDIE. Me too on the 25 hours!

Cam shakes again!

At this point I don't care what they bring to the nest as long as its edible and cold weather does not make difficult fishing BUT frozen water does. Is the water near NCTC frozen over? Just asking

Just had family company leave. I made a few trips to the PC trying to monitor what was happening.
It's 3:14 so soon the meals on wings should be flying in!

I have to put my feet up for a few -
Come on Shep - bring it on ♥

Hello to all our new Eagles Fans!

Jewels said...

Ok,I am awake...got the race on, the camera on and now to catch up on here. Good Afternoon!!!! Sure hope I see where Hedgie was fed!!

Mema Jo said...

GLO From what I know about the Potomac River
it does not freeze over - that is one reason the eagles stay all year round.

Lydia Price said...

Right Jo, the Potomac does not freeze over, and it has not been that cold anyway.

Mia Culpa, I didn't get a chance to welcome all our new Bloggers!(some we already know, like Christie! ☺)
Happy Hello,you have come at an opportune time for sure!

Lydia Price said...

Do you think it is possible that there is food at the top of the nest where we can't see? Maybe Belle has a little something besides moisture she is giving when she makes those feeding motions

Sandi said...

Back from CVS - have turned off the sound and minimized the cam page. I cannot keep hearing that peeping and staring at a nest with no food in it!

Oh, and it's SNOWING outside - here in lil old Bethany Beach, DE!!!

Bought chocolate at the store - that's how stressed I am!

Walking away from the computer - will check back later! Going to eat me some Cadbury Mini Eggs!

Sis, sorry, I have too gone back and read April's blogging. I end up in tears too. I like the name Shamrock too, and Mom loved Shamrocks, so its still fitting for the whole Lynn (MOM)feeling.

NatureNut said...

YAY, Shep, but WHERE'S the FOOD????

Jewels said...

Sandi, I am stressing a little too, I may go get a second helping of ice cream!And that I don't need!!!!

Lydia Price said...

Oh geez! Shep flw in but no FOOD????? Okay, I am getting worried for real now. Can we hold hands?
