Good morning feather time in IL
Good Morning everyone!Thank you, STEVE for the new thread, and thank you to GLO for the call over!Beautiful day today!Safe traveling, LOLLY.
Thank you Steve for the fresh thread and photo.... Lucky you Glo with another feather! Hello Lori! Are you still in MD?I guess Sandi and Dana are back in their classrooms.
Hi JO!I'm still in MD...so pretty today. I have a lot of gardening to catch up on and it's perfect weather! So glad to be home!!!! Will be leaving again for PA probably on Wednesday, or early Thursday.
Good Morning Eagle Pals...Test-driving the air conditioning here at the apartment to makesure it works! Might need it this week.Lori: It sounds GLorious ,your visit at Your Roost....Enjoy! Your Math Dictionary should have arrived in PennsylvaniaSaturdayxo ♥
Thanks to Steve for the beautiful photo, and the New Threadand to Glo...for the call over
Interesting and difficult topicsJudie is teaching...unfortunately,there is incidents of both of those, especially the latter topic,in our county:(
Hearing that beautiful Robin ♪ ♫singing at the nest
And the Peaglets seem as content as can be on this beauteous day...Thinking of Shirley every time I type that word Beauteous....used it with James yesterday,new word for him ☺Also thinking of Shirley andwishing all good outcomes todayGod Bless Our Returning to the Classroom TeachersSafe Travel Wishes for Lolly and Jack...Oh the things they have seen! (And Done!)
Time for me to shake the morning legs...and get things done here.Hoping to get to some birdwatching and wildflower finding later in the dayBest Wishes to Every One, fora Beauteous Day !xoxo ♥
sometimes I think I see a Spot onHedgie's forehead...like father like.....son ??☺
I also thought that I saw a spot on Hedgie one time - I would guess that Hedgie is a female and Shamrock is a male. Especially if their size stays for Hedgie to be larger not because of the first hatched but gender.
That does make sense, Jo...about their sizes and suchI am hearing Robin still, Cardinal, Crow, and that"Virginia Virginia Virginia" chirping is a wren, though I can't say which wren.Also hear the Downy Woodpecker sometime making its "cheep" sound
Holey Moley, Shamrock ligtening the load!
Jo, I agree...Hedgie looks much bigger today than Shamrock. I would guess she is female and Shamrock is a male.
Thanks for the new thread, Steve.I got home late last night...roof is all done. Boys did a great job, it was a long 2 days for them.
I see a white head and fish at the noon spot,,,looks like eatin' time.
Good Morning!Have been pretty busy this weekend. Got more reports from the doctor to transcribe.Haven't read back very far, but Shirley, thinking of you, hoping the procedure isn't uncomfortable, and the report is good.Margy, thinking of you and your mammogram and bone scan. Hoping for good reports on both!Lolly & Jack, safe travel prayers for the journey home!Paula, glad the roof's fixed!Well, gotta get busy. Will be in lurk mode, and will check back in later. Hope everyone has a good day!
Well, here I am stopping by on my lunch break and wouldn't you know I had e-mail notifications set to the old thread so I posted on the old thread too. LOLAnyway, what I said was I read Lynne 2 and some of your comments, and hat yes, I will let you know when I will be going to see the nest! Would be great to be able to see and meet some of you if you are around :)Talk to you soon. I have to get back to work now, just wanted to respond and wish you all a marvelous Monday!
HOME for lunch for a quickie and find a new threadTHANKS FOR THE NEW THREADSTEVE
Hey what is with collecting feathers? What happened to the sticky wax? :)It looks like everyone is pretty busy; only 28 comments on here today. I couldn't believe how big the two bobble heads are getting when I came in to school this am. They must be eating good. 44 days of school with children here for me this year!!!!! It was still good to be back tho. Hope everyone is doing ok and feeling fine.
Just to let you know that the eaglets are being fed at 3pm to.....and haven't stopped yet. They are nicely sharing the food and all is well. <3
Looks like our parents have gone from covering up the chicks to provide warmth, to shielding them from the warm sun in a matter of days :-)
I have rturned from the eye dr and can't see too well with these dilated eyeballs.Paula - John and Michael did good by youWaiting to hear from Shirley but I may have missed a comment... Thought I saw her over on FB games.
I need to rest my eyes for a while.I am straining to read what I type..BBL
Good afternoon all! Not many comments today - everyone must be out enjoying this beauteous day!Didn't do ANY school work over my spring break, but boy do I have to make up for it this evening! This will probably be my one and only post for the rest of the day and evening!
HELLLOOOOOHOME FROM WORKAS IF YOU DIDN'T KNOWFYII had the basket delivered today to Steve
CANDY we all have plenty of was and facial LOL
CANDY we all have plenty of WAX
See chicks are being feed
seems maybe its Belle hard to tell on edge at 12 sideways one chick at rear and other in front of her and She is eating not sharing right now Maybe its Shep both chicks are waiting
Heard that poop shoot as well as saw it
ok now its the chicks turn and still can't tell who the adult is
turn around go back both chicks are at 10ish and looking out over it seems turn around NOW
I don't think there is a adult in the nest anylonger I see no feet and the chicks are content to look out over the edge they are to close for me
EAGLE in nest moving flugg I think its Belle
Welcome home, JUDYE!SANDI, sorry you'll be so busy, but happy you enjoyed your vacation!JO, how are your eyes now?SHIRLEY, hope you're feeling fine and the reports are good.LOLLY, what time will you be getting home tonight, or are you taking your time?
Looks like they have decided to take a little nap on the edge of the nest
HI LORI happy to be home Welcome home
Hello from somewhere in Louisiana . Please note I did not say LA! My tush is numb. but all is great! Home between 9 and 10.
Yes, Jo, they did. I couldn't ask for a better set of sons.John put some pics from the beach on my FB page...and so did Michael.
Have a safe ride Lolly.
check this video of too coolEagles go to the beach I just love it
I got tears watching it
and if you live in the area at the end they invite people to come and see I think a ROAD TRIP is needed
chicks are awake again Belle is headless both are still at 11 on edge of nest
Big old Poop Shoot
good afternoon all. it is sunny and 78 degrees with heavy pollen here!!!!!!!!great news: well, i consider it great news. after weeks of monitoring, testing, tutoring, and observing, they have finally concluded that olivia indeed has an issue somewhere....adn are going to test for learning disabilities!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!i hope, i pray we get some answers! all i want is to be able to help her to be successful in school and in life.... i have been so deeply frustrated with this...this has been going on since 4th grade......she is finishing 6th now.....the testing will be before the en dof school on may 24. other than that, same stuff diff day here. so much to do, and i am just not in the mode right now. need to start the grill and get dinner going, however.hugs to all!
Thanks for the video JudyE. I haven't been to Minnesota for beach day YET but I have stood beside Angel to get a photo back about 3 years or so ago when she came to Bald Eagle Days near me. I must add Beach Day in Wabasha to my Bucket list. Its about 5 hours or so away I think.
Just called a order in to Parkside Cafe for Fish Sandwich (grouper) love it its just under a mile from me BBIAFM
JudyE that is a cool eagle hat you posted on the other thread.
Cool video, JudyE. Love that they get a little taste of the old life.Janet, glad they are testing Olivia.
Finished dinner - cup of coffee is brewing.Janet - I am so relieved for you with your results concerning Olivia. I'll Pray the testing will show something very simple that can be corrected ♥Just loving today's sunshine and warmth. Another great one for tomorrow but maybe some rain late evening.
My eye appointment was just to get checked for the Age-related macular degeneration. All is good but I will go back in 3 months to be sure it stays that way.Going to go on the deck and enjoy my coffee.. BBLI'm still checking for Shirley ♥
JANET, happy for you that they've decided to test Olivia. JO, enjoy your coffee.
Did you see that Annette Funicello has died?
and Margaret Thatcher?
Didn't hear about Annete funicello, heard about the Iron Lady.
EAGLE home WITH STICK
Lov those big feets sticking outEagle in the nest with a stick. Think it's Shep but not sure...nope it's Belle.
I also heard on the news so sad
they are almost as big as BELLEs
I am so full I have half fries left and half of the fish next time no fries
Belle is now feeding them
AWW the chicks were on the other side of Belle and one of the chicks moved over in front of her to snuggle
Don't forget the ISS tonight here is a link of when it can be seenISS tracking dates and times
click on the day and it gives you a map of the path of it pretty cool
Headed outside to look at the ISS in just a few! Got most of my school work finished for this evening.Janet, you must feel so relieved to know that the school is getting a handle on what's going on with Olivia. Once the right accommodations are put in place to allow her to be successful in the classroom, she will feel so much better about herself. Don't forget to be the squeaky wheel if you must - YOU are Livvy's best advocate!
to cloudy here to see anything tonight any luck with you SANDI
didn't see it. Hmmm. Some clouds. Must not have been very high up.
No luck tonight with the ISS. About an hour earlier than last night so it wasn't nearly as dark out, and there are some clouds, though stars were visible. Maybe tomorrow night when it passes by later again.
LYNNE2 check the map it shows the path and the angle etc
yours would have been a sun reflection from it it says on the link
Might be too cloudy here for the ISS tonight, will have to wait and see. Coming from the West here at 9:27pm
www.spaceweather.comClick on flybys at the top of the page and put in your zipcode...gives time and direction for your area.
Spaceweather has a much later time for the ISS
JudyE, your link has two dates for today, the second one says the same time as mine.
Will try again at 9:27 when the sky is darker. Maybe we'll have better luck. But how can it pass over the same area twice in the same night?
that's weird. My Satellite Tracker has only the earlier time. That site has 2 different times for every day!
ah, there are TWO times in my tracker as well! Very strange.....
How long does it take the ISS to orbit the earth....According to http://www.heavens-above.com/orbit.aspx?… it orbits the Earth 15.7166 times per day, which works out at an orbital period of 91.6 minutes. At an average height of 354 km, one orbit is 42,298 km and therefore the speed is 27,700 km/hr or 17,212 mph.
That is why there are 2 times....ya learn something new everyday! I didn't know it would be visible twice in an evening.
I thought I had heard it was like 17 times a day that it orbits the earth, just never thought it would be visible 2x in one evening.
Thanks for that interesting bit of trivia Paula!! Well, I'm happy to go outside and look again in a half hour!!Gonna hop in the tub so will say goodnight to everyone.Shirley, if you check in tonight, just know that I've been thinking about you today. Hope everything went OK and the results were all positive!See ya in the early AM!
Checking in, Sandi.
Sometimes it is like that Paula...ever so grateful that you "turned is on to ISS flyovers many years ago.I watch it fervently every chance I can....and James Loves it !Too cloudy here tonight to try to view it.xoxox
Blood Root, Cut Leaf Toothwort,Virgina Bluebells, Colstfoot,Ramps, Two Red-Shouldered Hawks, one Northern Flicker, a few Eastern Meadlowlarks,one Great Blue Heron, and a Bunch of Blue BirdsThat's the report fromSwinging Bridge
and one Chevrolet Blazer with NO Air Conditioning!Blaaaaaah !
Procedure went well. Doctor said that he sees no evidence of colitis and wants to look at the records and talk with me. Wanted to know if he is the one who made that diagnosis. He is. Very interesting. I did not know something like that could go away.Funny thing--The nurse who helped with the procedure is a former student of mine. I have had this happen before, but I think this is the first time it has been a former student from high school.
"turned US on" that would be, what I meant to type. Parked in a farmer's field the first time to view, then realized I could see it right here from MY Roost.
ah Cutleaf toothwart....the one with leaves that looks like that SPECIAL plant. WINK WINK!
That's a good report, Shirley...no polyps ??Happy that Jo's EYE EXAM went well
Might not have time to read back tonight, so I will just wish everyone well.
glad for the good report Shirley!
My brother in Naples informed me this morning that he has seen a Bald Eagle....told him about the Fort Myers, FL nest...but this would have to bea different eagle he has seen
Thanks JudyE... hope the Edible Arrangement reached its destination and that it was well-consumed and enjoyed !
Guess not, Margy. He did not go into complete detail. I was still a little loopy from the anesthesia, and it was obvious. I am sure that is why he said that we would talk later.
Damn Straight, Lynne2!I was surprised to see Blood Root at Swinging Bridge...never before have I seen it there....
I think he would have told youShirley...but you will surely learnmore in the lucid days to comeTake it easy, easing back into regular eating....Omelets are nice....
Glad things went well, Shirley. Gonna go take a look at the sky.
The ISS view tonight hereabouts would be too low and not very bright...but Tuesday's flyover could be better, higher and brighter.The "higher" the negative number and the higher the elevation....means better viewing
oh, Lolly, sorry about your numb tush..thanks for spelling out Louisiana, not an easy word to type !!Happy and Safe Trails for youand Jack !
Hey Paula, great call on the 2nd sighting of the ISS tonight! We saw it this time!! Woohoo!!Shirley, glad to hear everything went well!Goodnight!
Janet is there a name for what the specialists think Olivia might beexperincing ? I have a grand-nephew with a learning disabilitycondition....maybe we can compare notes
Yea, still too cloudy here.
Good for you, Sandi!
no luck with the ISS. Going to bed. Wish I was going to the Swinging Bridge tomorrow instead of work! Goodnight, prayers for all...oh, some pics on FB from our Saturday walk.
YEAH they found the two BOYS in CUBA may have to get the pres involved in this
Good Evening!Jo, glad your eye exam went well. Hope your eyes are feeling more normal now. Hate those eyedrops!Shirley, glad you've checked in! Good to hear that the dreaded procedure went well, and that your colitis has flown the coop!Margy, good to see you here too. Hope you get your results back really soon! I HATE when they make you wait for weeks and weeks!I'm happy to report that I got all my work done today, and sent back to the doctor's office. Now I can plan the rest of my week. I never know when they are sending work to me, or how much. I often get a boatload right before a holiday weekend, or when someone happens to be visiting from out of town. Have asked for a heads up from them, but they seem to forget. Oh, well. At least I'm getting work!!!Gotta stop complaining.Golly, the winds are fierce here today! Supposed to last through the night, I think. Hope they stop by morning, 'cause the gardeners are supposed to do the yard tomorrow! Janet, it's good that the school is going to test Olivia. Now maybe she will get just the right kind of help that she needs.Well, I need to clean up the kitchen, so guess I'll say goodnight now. Have said prayers for everyone. The porch light is on, and both security systems are enabled. Sleep tight, with SED. God bless, and goodnight. I love all of you!♥♥Lynn♥♥♥♥Carolyn & Christy♥♥I ♥ us!!!
Andy:I am often here at the wrong time for you...I dearly hope that Physical Therapy will help you in just the right way....rather than surgery...that is the route I took with the degenerative disc problems that I have have..mine were lower:L4 and 5, and S-1 - but I worked at it and learned to NOT do stuff ...takes some fancy-dancing sometimes..on the other hand: surgery sometimes IS needed...take your time and weigh ALL the options for YOU !xo (( Healing Hugs ))
Lynne2:I know you would really like Swinging Bridge....but it will always be there, and sometimewe can go there together!Let's keep our dreams alive ☺
I'm turning over all my car problems over to my Higher Power!and with that...I am working my way to bedtimeThinking of All, Seen and Unseen....Prayers that Wellness, Swells !Good Night, Precious Pals.... God Bless This Nest, andGod Bless Us, Every One xoxo ♥
can't figure out what is at the Snowman Cam.. too late for turkeys, looks like a BobCat or well, maybe a Racoon
Well I'm calling it a day SED ♥AOYPSee ya in the am ☼ at Sycamore Sunrise Cyber CafeBless this Nestand all ♀ ♥ ♂ whom watch it at Sycamore Palace Healing thoughts forthose in need"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting some kind of battle."
Very happy with the results SHIRLEY.JANET keep us posted with OLIVIA.MARGY What are the two tough subjects that JUDIE is teaching? I missed that one.PAULA yes indeed MICHAEL and JOHN are awesome rockin's people! LORI I am glad you have a few days at home...transitions take energy...
Rainy cold and snowy on the mountains here!!! I am back to bundled up and then some! LOLLY and JACK should be getting home soon. I hope LOLLY checks in.Glad you had a terrific trip LOLLY.
Woweeeee! We be home!! We be unloaded and unpacked!!! It really is a shame we have not been to Georgia more often, Why it is only a days drive away! 13 hours! The reason we have not gone in 7 years is because we were always trying to find a time for Laurel and the boys to go with us. We have seen Jane and Herbert but not the 4 girls and their families and we love them so much! We had a blast!!! And lots of hugging and loving!! We used to see them every year when Jack's dad lived in Judy's area. We all vacationed together at the beach.
Was that perfect timing, Hoda?!!!!
I will go out to see the ISS but doubt it will be visible here as it is overcast and rather the mountains might get in the way od the SW skies.
Gotta tell you our hawk story. Yesterday some of us were sitting on Jane's screened in porch on the back of her house. It is on the second story level. The immediate back yard has only a couple of ornanental trees. The back of their lot is woods. Jane has lots of birds as she has lots of feeders. Well, we heard the doves startle and fly off and then I saw a large bird swoop by. It took a second for it to register as it happened so quickly. A little while later it happened again and the hawk landed in a tree in the neighbors back yard. I think it happened two more times after that. We got the binoculars and then he did not come...of course. But, from what we saw we think it was a Sharp Shinned Hawk. They go after smaller birds and Jane's backyard is a perfect hunting area.
Welcome home Lolly!Hoda, sorry you are bundled today! We were in the 80's today....winter into summer here.SED, love and hugs for all ♥
Coming on rather late this evening - another Hallmark had my attention and then I watched a basketball playoff. Wishing all a peaceful night's restSED with AOYP ♥Goodnight
Oh, Lolly, a hawk buzzed through my front yard the other day...my sons saw it...said what was that? I explained it was a hawk looking for lunch :) They thought it was pretty cool. Gotta go look up what kind it was...
Sharp Shinned Hawks dine on smaller birds. Thought that interesting.
Welcome home LOLLYThanks PAULA...enjoy 80 weather. I just hope we did not just finish our summer with the few warm days we had.DANA had to take someone to the vet. she said bad luck on FB and now I am very worried. I hope the Labs are alright.
OK DANA posted on FB. All the problems are of a solvable nature. Aric's apt flooded, Monte had problems with car keys and bloomer is in hospital yeast and stomack expanding...might have to spend the night.
I am headed to bed. Hard to believe I have been up so late so many nights in a row!Night all! Will be happy to peek in on our eagles in the morn. It is good to be back! ((hugs))SED!!!
Good late night you all...It truly was a beautiful day here in Nestville...very warm and to be in the 80s tomorrow. Just a taste of more to come later.Time to get a garden in before the rains come and make it impossible to even walk in the garden, much less plow and plant!Did some outside work at GGs today...she sat out on her porch as we did our work, which is a major accomplishment, seeing as how she hasn't been out since last Fall! She sat for nearly an hour then got sleepy. Took her inside and she ate a big chef Wanda salad, she then ate a small dish of Kale. Hope that gives her some vim and vigorgood night my friends...sending love and prayers~♥~
Good night.PRAYERS♥Sounds like you had a good day WANDA. YUM for G G's food.
Good Tuesday morning my eagle friends!Judy, the Edible Arrangement you sent to NCTC is beautiful - what a nice thing for you to do!Lori, enjoy your time at home!Paula, glad the roof got finished in one weekend!Prayers for all the needs on the blog - make it a great day!
GOOD MORNING EAGLE BUDSboth parents in nest
The chicks are begging for food Belle is moving flugg and they must thinks its food they keep going to where she is Now she Poofs Kids alone
and Belle is back
both chicks are passed out in middle of nest BELLE is just sittin there at 6ish and she seems to be watching something
and POOF again she is a yo yo today
cam shake again
Good morning my eagle peeps.
Belle in the nest with food, Shep right in behind her. She is mantling...but I think she brought the food in. Shep exits to the left.
Looks like fish...she is grabbing a couple of bites...chicks getting ready to eat. Think Shamrock is the first one up for breakfast.
Good morning eagle fans!Going to be a beautiful say here with temps around 82...will feel like summer. HODA, are you still bundled up?SHIRLEY, glad your procedure went well and hope you learn the results very soon after talking with the doctor.MARGY, I'm envious of your trip to the Swinging Bridge! I bet springtime is beautiful there.I plan on doing a little gardening this morning while it is still cool, then studying and playing with Dalai today! We'll take a walk then play some fetch.Hope everyone has a blessed day!
Chicks plotzed at the 3 spot.
Ha Ha one is sitting up falling asleep.
Good morning everyone. Back from coffee and dog treats. Rainy days ahead for the week. Its good the country needs the framlands to get this rain. I have some Kohls cash to spend. I think I will go look for a new spring top :-) HAGD everyone.
Good morning my eagle budlets. I have been watching these Miracle Gro babies. I cannot believe how big they are already.
Good morning! Good to sleep in my own bed last night! I have been really achy lately and think it was the bed in Georgia. We shall see, do not want my back hurting.Neighbor just came over. Lady across the street died yesterday morning. Bless her heart, she is in a much better place. She was given a few months to live three years ago. The last few years have been really rough. It is a blessing that she is no longer in pain.See our eagles plotzed in the nest. They have really grown since I saw them last Friday.
Good morning - beautiful out there todayI was here earlier but then went to view the nest and check out FBI need to get to the bank and post office. Not sure when that will be.Hoping everyone has a great dayBBL
I see the peaglets are trying to get into Mom's Wingshad...and also wondering, is that new food at the 6-spot?haven't beeen able to watch too muchHello Eagle Pals !
They are following Belle's shadow. Hot and need the shade.
now that it is out of the shadows I guess it is a fish ??
Good Morning!Margy, it does seem as if we are like "ships passing in the night,"doesn't it? Always so glad to read your posts, though. You sure saw some cool things on your Swinging Bridge adventure! Thanks for the advice about my cranky neck. I am going with the P.T., as you did, and am hoping it will work in the long run. I hate to think of having surgery. I always take the more conservative route FIRST. It's possible that in the distant future surgery might need to be an option, but being the optimistic type, and knowing the power that prayer has on our bodies, I'll wait, thank you. I'll pray for you, and you pray for me, and we'll both be OK, I am confident.Love you dearly!♥♥♥ Happy to report that the fierce winds have died down completely in our area; they had been up to 80 mph in some places closer to the mountains than we are. No raging gales for our gardeners today, I guess.Prayers for Dana's Boomer--hope he feels better today! He's very much like Emma--I swear that pup would eat anything she can get into her mouth! I've always had to be so crazy vigilant with her that Ken swears I'm a little nuts! It does mean that it's easy to give her the allergy caps she's taking, though. Put them in a "pill pocket," and she thinks they're one of her best-ever dog treats!Lori, have an enjoyable day, and please give Dalai an extra dog treat for me and Emma!Glo, hope you find a nice new Spring top on your shopping expedition. Sounds like Dex is feeling better--give him a treat for me, too, bless his heart!Well, going to get a late breakfast and spend some time with Emma. Will check back in a little later. HAGD, everyone! I LOVE us!P.S.--Lolly, your hawk story sounds very much like what happens around our roost, but we have Cooper's Hawks instead! Keeps our smaller birds on their toes, for sure! Thank God the hawks don't catch anything really often. They have to go farther afield for a meal, usually.
Good morning, Andy!Time for me to start my day. Need to eat a bite and then do my walking. Did not eat much while gone, I was very good but was not active, just sat and talked, now up 2 pounds! Good grief!Have a great day! 72 here and expecting the front and storms!
