Feather for me?

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Yay!

Sandi said...

Thanks Steve for the new thread! Shar, I wasn't sure if you were for real or if this was an April Fool's joke! Thanks for the call over!

Judie said...

Good morning.

Thank you Steve for the fresh first day of April thread.

Congrats and thanks to Shar.

Just tuned in to see a brief battle of the beaks. Looks as if the babes were basking in the sun and looking ever so cute.

Hoping to finish most of the remaining papers today so I'll BBL.

Have a terrific morning everyone.

magpie said...

Good Morning Eagle Pals...

Thanks to Steve for the new Fresh April Thread, and
to Sharon for the call over


We are due to get some more rain today, looks like Belle is getting ready for it now

Thinking of Christine right this very minute....with prayers that the surgery is going well...

Martinsburg has an Edible Arrangements store, on Foxcroft Avenue, not sure if Jefferson County has one or not, that is
the county NCTC is in

Janet Fog Lines are the white lines painted along the SIDES of the pavement of the highway....very helpful especially when vehicles are coming the other way because their lights can
make things even more difficult to see

magpie said...

Lori
Hoping those Flash Cards are coming along nicely...a good way
to study for things, for sure!
Wish I could spend some time with you on all this...
I remember all the terms in Anatomy and Physiology classes...
whew, they were rough to remember!
I'm mailing out Mathematics Dictionary today...hope it will help at least a little bit, but
I did not see the term "drams" in there.

also learning everyting in metric...kilograms and all that,
quite different from pound and ounces....Best Wishes!

magpie said...

I SEE all that poop shoot whitewash on the left of the nest...not sure we have really seen such a quantity as that
in past years! The Royal Babies' digestive systems are working great!

Shirley
happy that that Rus slayed the pesky old virus for you !

magpie said...

DanaMo:
one of my two brothers, and his wife have a "winter" place in Naples...they are pleased with it, they own a condo, and in the other parts of the year they live
in Connecticut....
Keep your dreams alive !
You too, Sandi!

magpie said...

Best Wishes to All, for a Very Good Day....whatever is on YOUR dance cards today....

must take the machete to checkbook, and do some run around town chores, and then hope to
attack the debris field HERE.
AND turn over all the calendar
pages ☺
ttfn

paula eagleholic said...

Morning, all. I see fresh fish in the nest.

Mema Jo said...

Good morning THanks Steve for fresh new thread


Has anyone been watching the nest as to why the 2 chicks are alone

WVJerry said...

Good morning Jo. It's been that way no more than 10 minutes. I see a shadow so maybe an adult is in attic.

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Jerry - Looks as though little Hedgie has done a face plant but Shamrock is still looking all around.

I'll just keep faith in Belle and Shep that no harm will come to the little ones.

Mema Jo said...

Michael had just called from NC to say that Christine's surgery went well and that she was in recovery and she told them she wanted to come home today! I guess that says it all ♥

magpie said...

Howdy...
Belle got up, shook her wings a bit, then I think flew to a nearby perch in the tree...just what I am thinking right now...

WVJerry said...

Yeah. Maybe it's the angle of the camera but when they get close to the lower edge of the nest I think they are going overboard. Hope you are doing well this morning.

magpie said...

Yesindeedy, JO...that DOES say it all...Wonderful news, and
Thank You....
Hope Christine CAN go home today, that's the place to be ♥
with all those wonderful people
there !

WVJerry said...

Hi Margy. Good morning.

magpie said...

Howdy Jerry...going thrifting today?
probably a bit muddy for fishing!

magpie said...

Some of my plans just drastically changed..whale of a downpour
in my bathroom from the upstairs apartment...think something in their bathtub drain broke loose.
Big WOOF !!!

magpie said...

On that note:
See Y'all Later !!!

WVJerry said...

Wow Margy...better get going on your water problem. Was going out but wife and little dog she's watching this week are both asleep on the couch. I'll let them sleep and we can maybe go out later. Hope things aren't too bad with your incoming water there.

glo said...

yeah for Christine. prayers for an easy recovery.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Whoops! So very sorry Margy. That is a bummer! Good luck with getting the landlord right on it!

64 here right now and not a cloud in the sky.....a beautiful blue, no haze at all. After we walk think we are going to Fort Worth and the Botanical Gardens. A great day for it. I especially want to go to the Japanese Garden. It is absolutely beautiful and this time of year so much is in bloom.

Lolly said...

Lolly said...

So very happy, Jo, that Christine's surgery went well. Know that she will be relieved to have all of this over with and so neat she has her dad there.

Cam just shook, so know someone is in the attic.

Lolly said...

Well that link does not work. Will get rid of it!!!

DanaMo said...

Well, I'm back from my run. It wasn't pretty at all!! Not sure what to blame. Saturday's run was much better. Oh well. At least I got out there and did it. Now to stick to the meal plan. Very disgusted with myself. Gained everything back that I lost, not that it was nearly enough anyway. Back to ground zero.

Lolly said...

Will try that again, glad I checked.

Japanese Gardens

DanaMo said...

Saw on FB that Christine's surgery went well. Glad to hear it Jo!

There were some pretty bad April fools jokes on FB, Sharon and Bev! They weren't even close to believable! ;)

Mema Jo said...

I totally do NOT like water cleanups!
Good luck Margy!

Jenny is here - BBL

Mema Jo said...

F Y I: Dad is in the nest

Lolly said...

Left for a second...very happy to see Shep in the nest. Look at those two travel across the nest to dad,. They want some, too!

Lolly said...

Oh, dear, Hedgie was not being nice to Sham, Cone on, Sham, lift up your head and fight for what's right.

paula eagleholic said...

FEEDING AT THE 5 SPOT

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Shep just did the wiggle wiggle down into the cup. The only problem was that he forgot to get the babes under him. :)

Sandi said...

In from digging in the dirt - nice day outside, sunny and close to 60 for a change. Getting cold again tomorrow! =(

Decided to dig up all my daffodil bulbs in the garden area between the 2 driveways. This is the 3rd year in a row they haven't bloomed! GRRR!! I think there are too many roots from the liriope that I planted a few years ago for the daffodils to get enough nutrients to bloom. I get lots of green stalks but no flowers! Will move them to another area where the daffodils are blooming fine.

Margy, so sorry about the water in your bathroom - what a mess that sounds like!!!

Lolly, those Japanese gardens are gorgeous!!

Jo, wonderful news about Christine!!

Dana, thanks for the video in FB of the duck embryo moving around inside the egg - too cool!!

Belle just arrived with more fresh grass. Both parents are spreading it around. I agree they need to start working on those rails!! The kids are moving everywhere already!

Sandi said...

Bell has now covered both chicks with the new grass she brought in. Maybe instinct is telling her that cold or bad weather is coming? Both babes must be asleep as the grass isn't moving.

Lynne2 said...

Hello, checking in from work, glad to hear Christine's surgery went well!

Lynne2 said...

Busy as all get out today...no surprise!

stronghunter said...

Good afternoon,

Finished my morning errands and had lunch. Not excited to have to pick up colonoscopy stuff, but must do it.

Wind blowing the grasses in the nest.

I checked the nest a bit earlier to find that the little ones were alone for a bit. They are under cover now. I hear chirps.

Oh good grief, Margy. So sorry about your water problems. Yikes, what a mess.





Lori said...

Good Afternoon!

MARGY, thanks for the math thoughts and Flash card momentum! I'm slowly getting through it. Already have close to 200 cards done. Physics is next. Can't wait for the math dictionary.

JO, great news about Christine's surgery! Tell Michael I said hello.

OH MARGY, so sorry about the water problem! BIG YUCKO!

Thanks STEVE for the new thread, and SHARON for the call over!

JERRY, nice to see you on so much today! Hope all is going well.

SANDI, good for you getting out in the dirt. We had snow this morning, but it didn't stick anywhere.

JUDIE, good luck on finishing up grading your papers.

Think it's almost time for a nap!

NatureNut said...

Happy Day after Easter! I added a couple "survivor" pics to the Nook!

Margy, holy smokes! Hope somebody upstairs can turn off the water!Hope it's repaired ASAP!

So glad to hear Christine is doing OK. Prayers for her.

NatureNut said...

Almost "Batter Up" time at the first Nationals' game! Wonder if Helen & Ceil are there?
Later~~~~

paula eagleholic said...

Sun is out, kids are eating again. They are in the cup.

Judie said...

Afternoon everyone.

Margy, so sorry for the mess at your place. Hope by now the landlord has taken control to get the necessary repairs (and help with your cleanup).

Hi Jerry.

See the babes getting some late lunch.

Jo, so pleased to know that Michael says Christine is doing well and surgery was apparently successful. Sigh of relief.

Lori, not sure I understand the flash cards. Can you use them for exams or only for studying? I remember some stats profs would allow one page of formulas for exams. Making progress on the papers but, as usual, a slow process.

BBL

stronghunter said...

Feeding. Chirping. I think that's Belle.

Windy at the nest and windy here.

Judie said...

Ooooo! Nats 1 the other team 0 Can hear Loweeda all the way over here.

stronghunter said...

Hi Judie, you are definitely earning your pay. Hope you are almost finished with those papers.

stronghunter said...

It's spring! It's baseball season! Hunter's practices started on Saturday. Same team as last year, but different coach.

Hoda said...

The BBC reports a 100 car pile up on the roads in Virginia! I hope you are all safe

Hoda said...

I hope the papers are almost done JUDIE

Good luck LORI flash card studying is effective. We are metric in Canada but it must be confusing to you in the USA

stronghunter said...

Metric can be confusing if you are used to yards, feet, inches, and so on. But the truth is that metric is much more logical.

stronghunter said...

Not that I don't have issues with the metric system, too.

stronghunter said...

The accident was near Fancy Gap, Hoda. My news says 75 vehicles were involved in the accident on I-77 on the North Carolina border. Looks pretty awful, but I can't think of any Momsters living there. I do hope all of us are well. Looks like three people were killed and 25 taken to the hospital. It was very foggy when the accident happened.

Guess our Southern Delegation would be the closest to Fancy Gap.

stronghunter said...

Watching the news from North Korea. The adopted daughter of one of my good friends just returned from a teaching job in South Korea (her homeland). I am sure her American family is happy she is back with them.

stronghunter said...

Belle moved off the eaglets. There was some sibling rivalry immediately.

Belle took off straight up.

stronghunter said...

Got sound turned up, but not hearing anything but the wind.

Kay said...

Good Afternoon and Happy April Fool's Day dear Eagle Buds !

JO, I'm positively elated with the Christine news ! God is good !

Oh, MARGY, another flood from above. Arrrrrggggghhhh ! Hope for a quick and complete fix ! Wish those folks would move, though I guess plumbing woes are not their fault entirely. Or do they let the tub run over ????

LOLLY, such sad and distressing news out of Kaufman County Texas ! Sure hope the authorities zero in on the perps, and fast !!!!

DANA, don't kick yourself over the relapse, just go for a new beginning and I wish you great success !

Had a wonderful Easter weekend with the kids in spite of rainy, cold to cold weather. Haven't read back to the "old" thread, but trust it was a good holiday for y'all !

Seth is on Spring break this week and his parents aren't, so grandmother and Penny will be spending a lot of time with him and Malcolm.

Will keep looking in on our precious little Eagle family---love those parents and Hedgie n' Shamrock, too !

Love and prayers for all !

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

stronghunter said...

I hear some crows.

stronghunter said...

Happy that Christine's surgery is over, Jo.

Mema Jo said...

From Christine: My surgery went well. They said my gallbladder was really big but were able to get it out laproscopic. I went in around 7:30 and was out and coming home at like 11:30. The only problem they had. Was getting my breathing tube out it took like 30 min. I came home and took a two hour nap. Thinking I may take another one:)

I am so thankful for this outcome!

Sandi said...

Jo, what a terrific report from Christine!! Glad she's home with people who love her to take care of her!!

NatureNut said...

Wash. Nats. WON!!!!

Mema Jo said...

Loretta was this their opening game?

I follow the O's for baseball

stronghunter said...

Congratulations, Loretta!

stronghunter said...

Babies in the sunshine alone. Looks like they are napping.

stronghunter said...

Big shake!!

paula eagleholic said...

Lolly, Reece is really cute.

2 chicklets alone in the nest...I'm sure a parent is nearby...in fact one just popped onto the nest

stronghunter said...

Eagle calls. Shaking.

glo said...

Wow talk about quick gall bladder surgery. good news on Christine for sure.

Judie said...

Giving up the grading for today. Eyes are blurry and tired. About 75% done. Will tell the students tomorrow that I ran out of Jack Daniels.

Congrats to the Nats.

So happy Christine is home and apparently doing very nicely. Happy dance!

Shirley, glad your friend's daughter has arrived safely home.

Thinking of Kay, Seth, and Malcolm all having fun together. Enjoy.

Don't fret Dana. You'll soon be back to where you were and then be on your way.

See the babes plotzed in the late afternoon sun.

Okay, baby back bbq ribs and Cole slaw tonight.

BBL

JudyE said...

HOME from work and find a new thread

THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD
STEVE

I SEE CHICKS ALONE TOO

Lydia Price said...

Peeking in at nest form work on and off over day--for last almost an hour now they have been alone. I am sure parent is perched nearby..but would feel better if I saw one return to nest before I have to go to a mtg (late work night for me)

Lydia Price said...

And THERE WE ARE! HI MOM! Okay, I feel better now

JudyE said...

FEEDING TIME AGAIN AND MY THEY DO SEEM TO HAVE GROWN IN A DAY

Lydia Price said...

Shew! (WWN over and out)

Lolly said...

Home from our trek to the Botanical and Japanese Gardens. Beautiful day for it and we walked and walked. Always get ideas of things to do for our landscaping. Wish I had a crew of yardmen to do my work. LOL

Now watching a feeding and a poop shoot. :)

JudyE said...

SHIRLEY the whitesmoke thing I got too and had a hard time getting rid of it I had a message come up from Norton It is a ad wear and I googled it also
Also Norton came up with Auto protect is processing security risk Trojan, Dropper along with a warning of Ad wear so I uninstalled it from my control panel but had the hardest time getting it off of Google Chrome It wasn't on IE anylonger but being it was a google product and search engine it didn't want to go away from Google I reported it to them What a PIA for sure

I snipped a picture of the RED icon that came up with the trojan warning

JudyE said...

LOLLY happy you had a good walk in the garden I love our Largo Bot garden down here I need to go one day I went with Jordyn awhile back but need to go again by myself can stay longer LOL

JudyE said...

BELLE is digging the cup deeper

JudyE said...

Chicks are getting bigger need a bigger Bowl

JudyE said...

BELLE is talking just a few chirps

JudyE said...

WOW at a drive up ATM a lady was robbed last night at 9pm in Tampa not here but at a Well Fargo bank they had a gun and they had their head covered up good video but can't see who it is So be careful I know its here but it could happen any where I love the drive up ATMs I use to feel safer that getting out of your car now I wonder

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

I love it they are talking to you the camera operator that is so cool to see and listen to they ducks are green a pretty color so cute

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

Here is a video of the chicks all 8 jumping after the parent

Jumping down 35feet

paula eagleholic said...

Thanks for the video link, JudyE. Took me the longest time to finally count all 8 chicks.

pretty windy at our nest...was going to walk the dog, but it's rather chilly out.

Belle has the kids covered in fluff.

paula eagleholic said...

Supposed to be below freezing just about every night this week.

Think it's eatin' time. Nice wing stretch.

Mema Jo said...

Just returned from the Red Lobster - We still had gift card from Christmas present..

Our nest looks calm - I think that the adults more often will stay above the nest on guard as long as the weather is good and for longer lengths of time. lol Hard to sit on two of them and there comes one little one peeking out from under the fluff.........

Going in to watch some news and game shows......
BBL this evening.

paula eagleholic said...

Big PS, made it all the way across and out of the nest. I see where they had hitting that tree trunk, LOL

paula eagleholic said...

Belle grabbed a bunny leg that was by the 10 spot trunk. Walked it to the middle, now feeding from the 2 spot

JudyE said...

FREEEZING PAULA wow Its April

JudyE said...

I love watching them feed they are so patient too I think

paula eagleholic said...

One is eating, the other hasn't jumped in there yet...playing with the fluff

paula eagleholic said...

Yea, JudyE, it's been a cold spring this year.

paula eagleholic said...

Other chick backed up for a PS out of the nest...Belle walking around in circles...maybe too much wind.

Oh look at the crop on Hedgie....some wing flaps too.

Belle moved to the 11 spot.

Hoda said...

Well it is official!
No coat, not even a fleece!
No socks and not even shoes!
Yes I went out in sandals!!
The young people are in shorts and no footwear and very skimpy tops for the girls and no tops for the boys and there are street musiciens in the park also street dancers.
Very warm and very beautiful.
I declare it spring!!!

Hoda said...

Thanks SHIRLEY for assurance that MOMSTERS would be OK from the accident reported by the BBC.

So happy for Christine's report JO.
It was the same for me when they removed my gallbladder.

Dream on DANA and MONTE.

I only go to the bank in day light JUDYE and never to an ATM during early morning or evening/night.Once I went to the bank at 9:50 AM thinking I could use the ATM since the doors were still closed and there was a homeless person asleep next to the machines. I left. I do not go to the bank on weekends either when they are closed. They now have Saturday hours half day.

JudyE said...

watching something over head or in attic

Hoda said...

night light on. WIndy and Belle is on yet the chicks are visible and chirping.
Oh she is upset.
I see the spot on the side of her nose...left side. Camera shakes and she stops looking up...

JudyE said...

she watched him fly over Cam shake and then she looked up as he went over her

Judie said...

Sandperson will depart at ~11pm. The night light is on. Restful sleep for all.

paula eagleholic said...

Hoda, so glad you have spring! You are warmer than we are!

Hoda said...

To you too JUDIE!!!
Let us know how the " ran out of Jack Daniels" excuse goes over with the adult wanna be's!!! LOL!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Belle appears to be standing over the chicks...they are laying in front of her from what I can tell.

paula eagleholic said...

Now Maybe she is going to try and tuck them in a little better...seems like she was watching or listening to something.

Hoda said...

I know PAULA!!! None of us can believe it and this is why we are all taking it to the limit! We hope that this is not going to be our summer and then end up with a cold rainy July and August!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Nope, gonna do the standing up thing...guess they are getting big!

Hoda said...

Still little chirps PAULA but she does have them covered better...

paula eagleholic said...

She's looking around again. Heard some chick cheeps. Head tucked again. That kinda night, I guess.

Hoda said...

The Kootenay Co-op had the most delicious goat feta cheese today and I bought some...yummers. I do not think it will last well into the week!!!

JudyE said...

Hey does anyone else think the cam is a lot clearer tonight

Janet said...

good evening all!

MAGPIE: thanks for the info. i've seen and used those lines, but never knew they had an actual name!

JO: fantastic news about christine!!!

its been such a lovely day. mid 60' and sunny. it is cooling down for the next couple of days, but i think still sunny. at least til thursday.

work was good. had my annual review today. it went well.

livvy and i took scout for a walk this evening. i am working on her not pulling on the leash. i had googled some videos and learned some techniques. they seem to be working....she is such a good girl. :) just needs to learn....and she learns quickly.

everyone else here is fine. everyone, have a pleasant evening!

JudyE said...

MARGy you got email I sent u pic of yellow billed magpie that was posted on FB

JudyE said...

IS that a chick in front of BELLE ?

Hoda said...

Not to my eyes JUDYE!!! not clearer!!!

Hoda said...

I do not think so if you are talking of the grey changing shape blob infront of her...JUDYE

Mema Jo said...

My TV is over for the night - nothing else I prefer to watch.
Judy - clearness with the cam at night still isn't great. I think the weather has something to do with the reception... But yes it sure is better then last night.
Thanks for sending Steve and his cam crew the Edible Arrangement - Good idea and I feel Steve will like it too!

Hoda you mentioned the scar on Belle's beak - it has been there for a number of years (Not sure what year it happened - Intruder I think) I didn't read all the comments so I'm not sure why it was in conversation.
Just didn't want anyone to think it was a new mark.


Hoda said...

Camera is gone off! Twirly thing on...Camera is back on

Hoda said...

Thank you JO. Most recently it was brough up again as from something she has eaten...
Goodnight JO SED

Mema Jo said...

HODA - I just saw your picture over on FB of your sandals and NO socks WOW

Mema Jo said...

I am not ready to go to bed yet -
I'll holler when I do...... ♥

Lori said...

Goodnight everyone! See you in the morning.

HODA, so glad it's warm there - it's NOT here! Enjoy it, and the cheese. :)

JudyE said...

I think with the camera being clearer is why we can see the scar on Belles beak YA THINK maybe

JudyE said...

Getting ready to watch the Following Cable DVR love it

Good Morning Eagle Pals...
I just started out my computer morning with Tom Selleck's handsome voice ♥ on the RV ad...
Looks like the Royal Family is still snoozin'

It's just at 32-degrees here in Martinsburg

xo

magpie said...

Perfectly wonderful reports from
JO regarding Christine...

Thanks Jo !

Thanks for all the Water Leak wishes, pals....
once the first downpour ended, there was no more....but the maintenance guys will be here soon after I leave for work, and will probably have to tear a few things
apart

The apartment building was built in
1978, so I guess it's time that a few more things would start coming apart

magpie said...

My memory is a wee bit weak on the posts that I did get caught up on...
so I can't comment on much right now.

But, as always....I wish everyone the Best in what's going with
you...
and Prayers for Wellness All Around

now I have to start the Morning Shuffle

(( All Day Tuesday Hugs ))

magpie said...

and now Belle is awake and moving around...waiting on those first
Baby Eagle Cheeps

JudyE said...

GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDS


63° to start the day here gonna be warm today

JudyE said...

SHEP is feeding the chicks

T-Bird said...

Good morning my friends.

T-Bird said...

The moon is so beautiful this morning.

JudyE said...

BELLE arrives

JudyE said...

SHEP is up off chicks now both are on the edge at 12

JudyE said...

BELLE is feeding just one chick and its probably Hedgie other is asleep for the moments

Janet said...

good morning all. in the 40's today, but the sun will be out!

hope everyone has a wonderful day!

i am off. my afternoon meeting canceled (at olivia's school) as the psychologist wishes to be present..... and cannot make it today

not sure if my lunch meeting is going to go on or not. if not, i have other ideas for the day.

light, love, hugs, and smiles to all. make it a beautiful day!

Sandi said...

Good Tuesday morning Margy, Judy, Thelma, Janet, and all my eagle friends!! Clear and sunny here but only 29 degrees in Bethany! Cold front came through last night - no more 60s for the rest of the week!

Hoda, I am so jealous that you can wear sandals and no socks! I am so ready for my flip flops!!

Tennis for me this morning. Hope it's a great day for everyone!

Lori said...

Good Morning Eagle lover's world!

Asking for prayers for Kate's sister Annie, the one with Down's Syndrome. She is hospitalized and not doing well, you might say failing. Her blood pressure was super low last night, and they're waiting til this morning to make sure it wasn't caused by a sedative they gave her. She also has 2 broken bones in her pelvis from likely from turning her for bedsores. She is 52. Kate just says that if this is the end, she hopes it is fast, since Annie doesn't understand anything that is going on. I'll keep you posted, as I get news. Thanks!

magpie said...

Oh dear Lori...
so very sorry to read of Annie's illness...Prayers for the entire family....
(( Hugs ♥ ))

magpie said...

JudyE,
thank you for the pictures via email...I just had too much going
on yesterday to comment and say thank you

Must leave for work now...

Take Care, Eagle Pals
God Bless Us,
Every One xoxo ♥

Judie said...

Good morning.

Lori, so sorry about Annie. Thinking of Kate, the family, and you.

Looks like a babe is peeking out and Belle, I think, looks pretty in the early sun.

Sun on the nest is a good thing. Hoda, enjoying sunshine wearing sockless sandals is quite another thing -- an inspiration to become envious. Enjoy, Hoda.

Margy, sure hope the repairs will be quick and clean.

Soon to depart for the big schoolhouse. One thing about university students, they do relate to Jack Daniels -- well, cheap pitchers of beer.

Continued improvement for Christine.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

Janet said...

Lori: sending light and love for the highest and greatest good....and big hugs....

glo said...

Good morning all. It surely is still cold here. I iwll wear my winter coat scarf and ear muffs and head on over to coffee and dog treats. on my list either today or tomorrow is a stop at Bust buy to play with all the smart phones. I will own one this month sometime. I sure hope I can learn to use it quickly enough. I don't invest much time in cell phones but with spring and wanting to get Dex out I feel the need now to stay a little more wired!!! HAGD all.

Linda said...

Good Morning!

Nice to see Belle feeding the chicks in the sun! I do check on them from time to time.

Have missed checking in on all of you in the past couple weeks, but just can't seem to find the time.

When all the "have to" are finally done, I am done, too! In a couple weeks things should be better!

LORI - Praying for Annie and Kate as I am sure this is so heart breaking. May God Bless Her.

I couldn't possibly catch up at this point, but hope everyone is doing okay here!

So happy to see our eaglets doing so well! Did see the intruder video. Eeeks!!

Have a wonderful day!

magpie said...

Good Morning Mor Eagle Pals...from Work...


Google Image is very beautiful today

paula eagleholic said...

chicks are peeping and eating!

Lori, so sorry to hear about Annie, will keep her and Kate in my thoughts.

Good morning,

Haven't really read back--must get ready for bowling. I did see the post about Annie. Wishing her well. Prayers, Lori.

Chattering babies getting fed this morning. And not being tucked under some flugg.

Chicks are trying to scoot they way under Mom...she's got them pretty well covered. Pulling a big wad of fluff in.

Shep just arrived with more fluff

Kids kept moving around...Belle out of the bowl and took off. Shep at the 12 spot.

Shep is down in the bowl, not sure he can brood them. They are laying in the bowl and chirping away. Good boy Shep, he has snugged over them.

Good morning - bright and clear but rather cold outside! The nest looks great

Lori - Prayers for Kate and for Annie.

No plans for the day - Bowling and tennis sound like good activities.
I better think about some type of activity to occupy my time - right now it is computer card games.

Good chilly morning to all.

Jo, I think I spent the winter playing computer games...

Prayers for God's will for Annie.

Good morning! Dentist today and certainly hope the crown fits and this is ended.

Then tomorrow the do gets done.

Then on Thursday a road trip!! We are heading to Georgia to visit family. We will be returning on Monday. We think 4 nights there is enough to bother his sister and hubby. lol

Watching the feathers fly or is it fur? Belle, I think, was preparing brunch for the children.

Lolly said...

Prayers for sure for Annie and her family. Very sad since she does not understand what is going on.

Sandi said...

Home from tennis. Belle is de-feathering or de-furring something in the nest - fur or feathers flying everywhere!


Lori, I will keep Kate and her sister Annie in my thoughts and prayers. How is her mother doing in assisted living? Has she adjusted or is she still determined to go home?

It appears lunch is a fine feathered friend. :( The wind blew Belle part of the way across the nest.

Sandi said...

I think it's a duck or some other water bird. Thought I saw a beak when Belle picked it up by the neck. Whatever it is, the kids seem to want some!

Hedgie got lots to eat and Shamrock got some, too. Belle is making sure Shamrock gets plenty on this feed.

WV sUSAn said...

Sharon, you saw that big wind blow Belle got. She was getting it straight up her bum and it finally caught her just right.

Apologies for my neglect on this site.  I'm thinking that it might be time to conclude this blog, as I started it before the social me...
