I'll alert the others

Thanks Steve for automating our blog

Lolly said...

Good job, Jo!!! I'll try to get it tomorrow. lol

When are you leaving for the beach? Enjoy for all of us!!

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Hello Mema Jo and Lolly!

Lori said...

Thanks AUTO for the new thread...

Congrats JO on your new feather! Have fun at the beach!

Hello JO, LOLLY and ShARON and the rest to come to this new thread.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. Actually had some snow flurries again this morning!!!

CarolAnne said...

Hi all.
Much to comment on but for now will just wish Jo safe travels.

And to add : such crazy weather my wash line has sweaters, long sleeves, short sleeves, tank tops hanging on it from one week's weather.

Have a great day everyone.

Sandi said...

Quick check-in from school.

Jo, call me if you want to get together for dinnerthis week!

Happy birthday SUSAN!

Happy anniversary DANA and MONTE!

Judie said...

Home again. Vampire accomplished her task.

Happy Birthday, Susan. Hope it will be an exceptional day for you.

Happy Anniversary to Dana and Monte.

Really hard to believe Vincent is going to be one year. Can only imagine how much fun his family will have for his birthday.

Jo, safe travels and may the "open" house go quickly and easily. Hope your old computer lets you chat with us occasionally.

Two blobs huddled together in the nest. Bet they're chilly.

I can relate to CarolAnne's comment. Wore a sweater to the vampire's place this morning and will wear it again to a viewing this afternoon. Well, can't really complain. Sun is shining brightly.

Okay, feets going up.

Kay said...

Good Afternoon Dear Eagle Buds !

♫♪Happy Birthday to you, SUSAN ♪♪♪

♫♪ ♥Happy Anniversary Waltz Day to DANA and MONTE♥ ♪♪♪

Much thanks for STEVE for the Auto feature---love today's technology !

And thanks to all who gave me such a gracious "Welcome Back" !

We, too, are back to warm jackets, but I love it. I'll be complaining about the heat soon enough !

Adding my good wishes to others for safe travels for JO ! I hope she and SANDI can get together this trip.

Love our eagles and love you all !

My prayers are with those in need !

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Lolly said...

Helloooo there, Kay! Missed your first post. Yes, welcome back1 Just know you had an awesome time!

Have been to church, Pulled weeds and spread mulch. Looks good, the Lantana should be blooming soon. Did note I will need to water there soon.

Came home and started work in our yard. Taking a break and eating a late lunch. I get busy in the yard, do not get hungry and often miss a meal.

I see a fish in the nest and an adult feetsies at 12.

magpie said...

Well! I see Jo has started the Feather Parade....
If I happen to notice any new threads and get the first grab on them, I officially donate my
feathers to Jo ♥
Safe Travels, Pal...

Did I tell you we shall miss you ????

magpie said...

Oh I have a clear visual of
CarolAnne's clothesline !
Whoo, it could get cold hanging and unhanging those clothes...I did that for many years....
miss it now, but I can't say I'm
too sorry about having a Dryer also.
"Someday" I shall have a place
with a clothesline !!!

Hello Afternoon Eagle Pals ! xo ♥

magpie said...

Thanks to Steve, far far away...for this brand spiffy new thread !

Wonder what HIS weather is like!

magpie said...

New Thread, New Round of Greetings:

Happy Birthday, dear sweet Susan...may this be a most happy day for you ☺ ♥

and...

Happy Anniversary Dana and
Monte, may this be a Sweet Sweet day for you also ! ☺♥☺♥

magpie said...

Lolly! that is too funny about Joseph Driving and Texting, and
sharp on Jack for catching a good
opportunity to crack both a funny,
AND to give the little chap a good lesson for the future.
I am so happy for your entire week-end's activities ☺

Lori said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY,SUSAN!!!! I hope it's a very special day for you.

Happy Anniversary to DANA and Monte!

Safe travels, JO! Did I miss a post about you having an open house?

KAY, so glad you're home and back on the blog!

LOLLY, that's very nice of you to work on the gardening at the church.

It's a cold day here...only 47, but like KAY, I'll be complaining about the heat soon enough. :)

magpie said...

Tom Sweetie ♥ is actively looking for a house to buy...has a bead on a couple of good ones here in town....I give him the "skinny" on whatever neighborhood the houses are in that he is looking at.....the two on the horizon are both pretty good.
I shall offer making garden, with
a trade for collecting his home-cooked specialities ☺

magpie said...

LOL. Lori...
Jo is going to the BEACH to open up their BEACH house there...
that is the Open House ☺

I have a three or four page
"thing" to fill out for
the neurosurgeon's appointment
Tuesday....groan...I am putting it off as long as I can! I make this mention to you Lori, as you plow
through YOUR paperwork.
Wait until you get to making Care Plans in Nursing School...talk about Paperwork !!!!

magpie said...

By the Way....
It IS beginning to look like surgery will be needed for "Lefty" which gets a "Severe Condition of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome." Righty got a score of "Moderate" so I think I might be able to tackle Righty with some good physical
therapy...."More to Be Revealed."

magpie said...

But I have a LOT of good tunes to
be-bop with while I struggle to
WRITE things on this paperwork :(

Judie...I figure you might be
involved in some of the National Police Week activities...yes ?

magpie said...

I went to a neat Chinese Food place for lunch with a family friend...
then went to Big Lots for Laundry Softener...well, one cannot get out of Big Lots with just That!
And it happened to be right next door to Goodwill, so since I missed my Sunday fix with James at Goodwill...well, you know...
So a few dollars later, I guess I am "set" for a little while.

magpie said...

NOW I need to get crackin' on some
"homework."

Best Wishes for a Very Good Evening, Pals....

I will cover up the plants once again tonight and hope it is the last time I need to do this....

Okay, well, so long and 'bye xo ♥

magpie said...

Lori:
I kind of make a pact with myself not to bemoan the weather...I like this cool spring, and the winter, well I wanted more Snow !!
But I know how daggone HOT HOT HOT things will get and I figure I will
break my pact with myself and start bemoaning ☺

Love you, Friends...
xoxo ♥

Janet said...

JudyE said...

JudyE said...

fish delivery

JudyE said...

looks like two fishes in the nest Belle is going over to the other one and Hedgie is picking at the one she brought in

JudyE said...

I think the feather should be on hold That is cheating 11:11 JMHO anyway

JudyE said...

this is a pic from today at the tower

JudyE said...

Tracey at work I am giving her the birds nest She said she could use it Cool I was wonder what i was going to do with it

JudyE said...

I think I chased everyone away LOL Just kidding or am I LOL ok gonna go watch the news

JudyE said...

both adults in nest

JudyE said...

That must have been Shep that came in with fish because Belle just arrived

JudyE said...

SHEP took a piece of something and hopped up to the cut off limb

JudyE said...

It is 75° and dry air mass is over us low humidity 29° 44° dew point nice


WOW Cold front went by 40's for tonight in northern areas WTH

but by the weekend the heat will be back Dern IT

JudyE said...

HEY anyone have any idea I saw two mocking birds as I was driving down my road one house from mine and I stopped first they were low in the air playing like then they landed in ground and doing a hopping around dance of sort Is that the mating ritual for them was so cute Only got a few seconds on video being I was on the road and people wanted me move LOL

JudyE said...

I need to get the pic in the album I have days worth to do but I need to go get a shower first Lator gator

paula eagleholic said...

Beautiful view on the cam. I eaglet perched at the 1 spot, the other is laying in the nest

paula eagleholic said...

I was wondering if that was a fish laying in the nest...apparently so, the eagle from 1 came into the nest and is now eating it. I think it's Shamrock, but not positive.

JudyE said...

One eaglet is eating now I have such a hard time telling them apart now They are like two peas in a pod

JudyE said...

HI PAULA

paula eagleholic said...

Hi Judy!

Trying to get some stuff done...I am leaving Weds night to go to Michael's, then we leave on Thurs morn for Mass.

Judy, I found a great $99 camera on the clearance table at Wally World, I am a happy camper. It's still just a point and shoot, but I've been camera-less for awhile now.

paula eagleholic said...

But it's a nice point and shoot :)

magpie said...

Perfect timing, Paula...I think you shall have a LOT to point and shoot in the week to come ☺
So very happy about this jaunt you
have planned....

JudyE said...

what is the Zoom and MP on the camera model # They still sell mine now but its Plastic and 10 more dollars I would recommend to any one I love the pic it takes

magpie said...

Maybe you will some Massachusetts Wildflowers "never before seen" in these parts

JudyE said...

Take lots of pic for us OK

magpie said...

Oh my that is a great view of the nest... I hear the crunch and munch..

55-degs here now but it sure feels colder wondering how accurate
my thermometer is

Plants covered up once again

And it is a beautiful sunset...
Moonie is visible already

paula eagleholic said...

Judy, it's a 2yo Kodak, brand new in the box. 21 zoom, 14mp.

magpie said...

When in Massachusetts in July 2009 I found a few new flowers,
Hawkweed was one, a beautiful orange,
and a few more that I forget the names of now

paula eagleholic said...

That's why I got the camera, because of the trip.

Hoda said...

Well I see competition in our future!!!
11:11 can cause us some problems!!!
LOL!!!
You youngsters had all better play nice!
Don't crash the blog as you try to get THE FEATHER!!!

Happy Birthday sUSAn

Happy Anniversary DANA and MONTE.

Safe travels JO. Enjoy the feather and the beach. Yes I hope the computer holds for you to be able to post.

Rain rain and rain...it took me forever to walk home from errands as things are in bloom more and more and I had to stop and just look about. The iphone did not do the blossoms justice...Oh it is like a London rain today...

No brownies for me JUDYE. It was an honest mistake...I did however have an asthma attack during the Garden Fest on Saturday as someone toked up close to our booth and my oh my did I have a reaction.I used my inhaler. The By-law officer gave a warning and put a stop to it. I think this is why I had been so tired on Saturday.

paula eagleholic said...

Well, maybe not quite 2 years old...manufactured Aug 2011

Hoda said...

MARGY a million thank yous for your support of the Nelson Grans to Grans. We cashed your cheque today and everyone from the committee told me to say thank you.
THANK YOU MARGY

paula eagleholic said...

Oh yes, I see they are all at 11:11 for the last couple of days.

paula eagleholic said...

We are visiting my Aunt and cousins on Thurs, Fri and Sat, then we head to Boston at lunchtime on Saturday. Going to Cape Cod on Sunday, then home on Monday.

Harrisburg Falcons Banding info

Banding Event
The annual Peregrine Falcon banding event will be held Tuesday, May 21 at 1:00 PM in the Rachel Carson State Office Building Auditorium in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The event will be produced and live webcast by Commonwealth Media Services from the DEP Falcon Page. DEP is inviting teachers, with their students and non-formal educators to attend, through a pre-registration process. Biologists will weigh, examine and band the soon to be nearly four week old eyases.

JudyE said...

good zoom that will get you some good pic PAULA

JudyE said...

OK off to TV land

JudyE said...

LM

Hoda said...

I am excited for your trip PAULA it sounds terrific. Enjoy and oh how I love the feel of the water off of the Cape. Are you going to Barnstable? This is "home" for me when I was there. Lucky you...Best icecream any where in the world is a little place called Four Seas. Pictures please with your new camera...

paula eagleholic said...

Chicks are snugged together at the launch pad.

paula eagleholic said...

We will probably go through there and may even stay there...I am checking out B&B's tonight.

Hoda said...

Well tomorrow I will be MIA
The polls open at eight and I will be there at 7:30 AM in the morning.
I will stay there till 4:00 PM and then go to Yoga. After yoga there is a Bhajan Concert till 9:30 PM. By then the results of the elections should be close to being declared and there is a gathering for all the volunteers to watch the results come in...I am not sure I will last to attend that gathering...I need to be able to function on Wednesday so I am almost sure I will not go...9:30 my time most of you will already be asleep. So do not worry if I do not log in...if the polls are slow I will use my cell phone to let you know I am alright.

Hoda said...

Oh I am jealous PAULA. Barnstable is pretty awesome and Centerville is not bad either...do take pictures...lucky you!

Hoda said...

Commander Chris Hadfield has left the ISS aboard a Soyuz on his way back to earth...a good five months he spent on the ISS and we in Canada are very proud of him. We learnt a lot about space.
God Speed Commander Hadfield. Welcome Home Sir!

SAD news

Northern California Eagles
57 minutes ago

JudyE said...

LOVE HOW THE EAGLETS SNUGGLE SO SWEET TWO PEAS IN A POD

Hoda said...

JUDYE was that the eagle that was fighting and fell to the ground in the parking lot?
Sad whenever an eagle is lost. Sorry it is Patriot as I think there is a large following. I did not see a picture.

JudyE said...

YES HODA so sad

JudyE said...

the picture is on my wall down a day or so I shared it to my newsfeed

Lynne2 said...

Hey there!

If I could tell you about today at work, you'd want to send a shrink to us immediately.

SO tired, tried to read to catch up, but not able. BUT, I see Janet and Paula are taking vacations and Hoda is her usual whirling dervish! And Tom Sweetie might soon be on the move, and will have a personal gardener?!

Gotta run, love you, good night and prayers for all!

Lynne2 said...

UGH...

HAPPY BIR

Hoda said...

I saw the photo on your wall a day or so ago. This news quote you brought over here said there was one photo that made them 99.9% sure that it is Patriot and I am curious as to what makes them that sure JUDYE

Lynne2 said...

omg fingers are pooped.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSAN!

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY DANA AND MONTE!

NatureNut said...

Good Everning Eagle Buds! Finished my leftover Mom's Day dinner~~~~lobster, Yum. But we didn't go out.Had to devise a cooking method myself! Have cooked them before, but a long time ago. It was nice of Fubby to get them at grossery! Been finishing up laundry. Since it might be freezing in AM, had to spruce up the heavy pants for Park. Thought I was done w/them!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUSAN and HAPPY ANNIV. TO DANA & MONTE.
Small home nature report is that Mr. Wren chased and tried to peck a squirrel in the tree!!So weird~~~he sits in the tree by bird house and sings away and we haven't seen Ms. nest builder for a couple days!Maybe he's trying to entice another renter!
Time to go, so Pleasant Feather Dreams and Good Health Prayers for ALL ;>)

magpie said...

Did Judie give us the Sandperson alert, or has he done his Sleepy Dust deed at her roost before she had a chance to do so....
Because, I do believe he is close by NOW

magpie said...

Paula
Thanks for the Peregrine Falcon banding report at Harrisburg PA...
funny, I had realized today I have not been checking that site...
WOOF - I'll be at the doctor's office around that time.....

magpie said...

Pretty certain it is Soup Kitchen and Clothes Closet for Wanda and Gene Tuesday night...
Busy Busy and bummer we probably won't get to drool over the Menu
unless her computer revs up in time for that

magpie said...

Time for bed here, for sure

Best Wishes for Sweeeet Sleep with some extra wishes for Hoda the Energizer Bunny

Prayers for Wellness, All Around

God Bless Us,
Every One xoxo ♥

Hoda said...

Yes JUDIE gave us a sandperson alert MARGY.

I think I am headed off to snooze land as I will get up earlier than usual tomorrow.
Blessings to all

Goodnight.

PRAYERS♥

Lolly said...

Getting on to say good night. I am yawning big time!

paula eagleholic said...

Happy Birthday Susan!

Happy Anniversary Dana and Monte!

SED, love and hugs for all ♥

Sandi said...

Good Tuesday morning my eagle friends. 37 degrees this morning - BRRRR!!!!

C/A, know what you mean about sweaters and tank tops in the same load of laundry! Roller coaster weather!!

Did my grocery shopping last night to free up my evenings in case Jo and Ed want to meet for dinner.

More state testing in store for me today.

Eaglets were alone when I signed on but Belle has now arrived and they are peeping for some food, which she is offering.

Make it a great day all!!

Janet said...

just a quick good morning to all! sunny and 50 here, quite a lovely morning...made even more lovely by you all, my friends!

light, love, comfort, healing and smiles to each ofyou! :)

magpie said...

Yup, 31-degrees here overnight.
And Wednesday it will be in the
mid-80's...
Especially thinking of Megan and her Crops...and hoping all her beautiful plants made it through the night OK

Janet: Happy Trails....and Safe Travels....and have Boatloads of Fun on your Vacation !

Best Wishes for a Very Good Day,
today, Every One

worktime looms, so it's time to go
xoxo ♥

JudyE said...

GOOD chilly morning 58°

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

I have been meaning to say this. How appropriate is it for the ad for goRVing.com at the beginning of turning on the eagle cam to be Tom Selleck's voice.

paula eagleholic said...

Big wing flaps and eaglets are being fed.

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps.

Lori said...


Good Morning everyone!!!

Glad to see so many people on the blog this morning.

It's a cold morning, 29...brought the potted plants in last night.

So, HODA will be MIA today. Good luck with all your duties and activities, HODA.

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Lolly said...

Good Morning!!!!

Thinking of doing the annual cleaning of the patio today. It is a big job...haul all furniture off, then scrub the tile and let dry and then reseal and let dry. While it is drying scrub all the furniture and then move it back. It looks so nice when finished!

Lolly said...

All the oak pollen has fallen and most of the pecan pollen, so think today will be a good day. Rain possible tomorrow. I say possible as the all the news is about how dry we are. Big fire at Possum Kingdom lake where there was a big fire two years ago. Dreading this summer. Water rationing has already started in some areas.

NatureNut said...

Happy Chilly Tuesday to Everyone!
Brought the parka to the River this AM. It's now about 50° out!
Just had to tell you that there are 3 CHICKS in our UStream Osprey cam. I can copy the link, altho it's easy to find. My Bluey Thing instruction sheet disappeared :>(
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/osprey-camera

Lolly said...

I do hope Dana and Monte had a good celebration yesterday. We hit 48 next month. Two more years and then the big 50. Our plans are to go to Italy...Tuscany here we come!! I also want a beach vacation with the whole family. Doesn't that sound fun! Have already told Michael and Ashley.

Lolly said...

Loretta, I have my blue thingy instructions taped to my laptop. lol However, I do have it memorized.

< a href = paste web site > Name you want to use < / a >

Do that with no spaces except what you want to name it.

glo said...

Stopping in to say hi and wishing all of you a good day. I hve a backyard to mow before it is 90 degrees today. Silliness it was 37 yesterday morning. But everything is green and beautiful Dex and his new kitty sisters are all doing fine. One of them actually comes very very close now and sort of bumps briefly to see what will happen. I think we have a bit of friendship coming along :-). HAGD all.

Lolly said...

Just came back to say have a good day! Going to start mine.

No new thread at 11:11.

Lolly said...

Taking a break! Whew! Patio is de-furnished and scrubbed. Waiting for it to dry before doing the sealer. Jack is cleaning the furniture. Yea!

Still no new thread. ????

Lolly said...

See just the back sides of two eaglets. They are on the edge ( 12 and 4) facing out.

Lolly said...


Minnesota Bound Live Loon Cam


WE ARE LIVE!!!! Please be patient as we work out any of the remaining kinks and update our website with all the happenings. As always, tune in to Larry's regularly updated loon blog for more information.


Lolly said...

Well, drat....can not get the loon cam to come up.

Lolly said...

Loon Cam


See if you have better luck!

Lolly said...

Ok, got it to work! Back to work!

Kay said...

Good Afternoon Eagle Buds !

Looks like y'all took a break after LOLLY got back to work !

MARGY, I love your avatar ! Dandy-lions get a bad rap--why do we call beautiful flowers weeds ??? I love to see the freedom lawns in my neighborhood with their lovely yellow and purple flowers--don't know what the purple weed is, but it's beautiful, too ! Sounds like you and Tom Sweetie will have a good working relationship and bartering system ! Nice !

SHAR, I agree re:Tom Selleck's voice over---our lovely HEDGIE LYNN would love it ! I saw him recently on The View and couldn't get my mind off LYNN the whole time.

Penny and I spent the morning at Julie's. I helped refresh the patio, wash windows/screens and prep her wood tables and benches for painting. We're getting ready for Seth's Graduation Open House on June 1. I love getting back to "work" and spending time with my dear daughter. Penny and Malcolm are getting along great so I'm relaxed about leaving my little gal with them next weekend when I go to CA.

Enough about me !

LORETTA, thanks for the good news and link for the 3 osprey chicks !

LORI, mega hugs for you. What's up now that you've aced the big test---what's next ? How are your mom and dad each doing ? Inquiring minds......

Love and prayers for each and every one of you ! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Sandi said...

Good evening all!

Just got off the phone with Jo - she asked me to let everyone know that she and Ed made it to the beach safe and sound!

We are not getting together for dinner this time, as Jo and Ed will be heading home on Thursday morning/afternoon. =( Next time!

Kay, so great to hear you talking about washing windows and doing spring cleaning stuff.

Paula, have a wonderful vacation!!

Lolly, now that the pollen is finished, Denny needs to pressure wash the outside of the house and the porches so we can get the screen panels in the screened porch and be ready for summer. Speaking of summer, highs were in the 50s yesterday, 60s today, and going up to 80 tomorrow!

Dana posted on FB that she can hear her ducklings peeping - hopes to have some in the incubator when she gets into school tomorrow morning!

OK, think I'll go stick my body in the bathtub and my nose in a book. Long day - one of my special ed. kids punched another kid in the face and is getting a 3-day "vacation" from school. Another just got up and walked out of class and told the teacher to "get out of his face." A 3rd kept putting his head down and falling asleep in each of his classes! The kids are SO done! And so am I!!

Goodnight everyone!!

Evening all -
Now that I've riled up the dandy lion folks; how do you feel about lilies of the valley? I feel they are as aggressive as dandy lions. Give them an inch of flower bed space & next year they've taken over a foot. Grrrrrrr. :o)

OUCH - after battling the l.o.t.v. I attempted to trim an old (30-40 yrs) gnarled lilac tree. Each year a few more branches die. I wait until tiny leaves form & flowers start to determine which branches are dead. Mistook my finger for a branch(nt really) & sawed a jagged cut across the top of it. Enough yard work for tonight.

Hope everyone has managed a good day.

stronghunter said...

Happy birthday, Susan,
Happy anniversary Dana and Monte.

stronghunter said...

Hunter is snacking on lemonade and pickles. I am cringing.

stronghunter said...

Watching semi-finals of DWTS.

stronghunter said...

Hunter had a baseball game last night--temperature was 58 and the wind was blowing. A bit chilly for baseball.

Ice cream person was quite lonely.

JudyE said...

stronghunter said...

Stopping by to say good night while I can still type. Getting very sleepy. I will try to check in tomorrow between errands and bridge.

Rest well and SED, everyone.

Lolly said...

I plotzed in my chair tonight. Hard work wears one out! :) Tomorrow a chance of rain so probably will stay in. Do have a doctor appointment tomorrow afternoon. This is routine, follow up after blood tests.

Time to head to the shower and get comfy.

Good night all! SED!!

paula eagleholic said...

Got to see my studmuffin before I head off on my road trip. He finally is getting to his beach house on Thursday and Friday, working on getting his boat ready.

Can't wait to start the trip tomorrow night. I am psyched!

SED, love and hugs to all!

Hoda said...

Have not read back.
Just got in
Long long long day.
I left at 7:30 in the morning and just got in and it is 9:55PM my time.

I think it was a good day and I am tired. I need to rest a bit before the morning.

I went to yoga and an excellent Kirtan concert, Bhajans and they were terrific.

I need to find out how big a percentage our candidate won with...I am hoping 65% we certainly put in the work for such results.
Will let you know.

Hoda said...

Our candidate won her seat.
Resutls are still coming in but she is so far ahead there is no way it can be turned.
The party however did not get majority in the province so we are not forming the government...
Glad and sad at the same time!
Oh well we tried our best!
Bad news for the environment...

Hoda said...

Oh well!

Goodnight

PRAYERS♥

Sandi said...

Good Wednesday morning my eagle friends!

Both eaglets are awake and standing near the edge surveying the world and waiting for breakfast.

Cloudy here - it rained some during the night. Supposed to hit 80 but may have thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Make it a great day all!

magpie said...

Good Morning Eagle Pals.....
I heard an adult land but didn't see it and don't see it now but
the peaglets know one is nearby!

Happy Last Day at the Office, Paula.....
And what a send-off, time with
Studmuffin ♥

magpie said...

Trump, no Trump, Shirley!
Hope Bridge is fun today....

and for Hoda, yes, happy and sad...sounds like you and your friends worked as well as you could for your candidate...
and what a nice bunch of other
things you did Tuesday also

magpie said...

Hearing the Baltimore Oriole on and off once again, and now the Wren...

JudyE said...

GOOD MORNING EAGLBUDLETS eaglets are almost on top of each other

JudyE said...

63° out now nice day in store for us

T-Bird said...

Good morning my fine friends.

T-Bird said...

Here too JUDYE.

T-Bird said...

We have Orioles in Bluefield too MAGPIE. We have tried for a couple of years to feed them with a oriole feeder and then oranges but they haven't come.

magpie said...

Keep on a'tryin' T-bird...
One fine day they might come in for you...
they are lovely birds with a sweet sweet song ♪ ♫

time to head on out to work now

Good to SEE You, and
Hi to JudyE, Sandi, and all Eagle Pals to follow along today
xoxoxo ♥

Janet said...

good wednesday morning! sunny and 60 here!!! ITS PUPPY DAY!!!! i may have completely lost my mind....getting a puppy for Scout. lol.

Tuesday was nice, finished my massages, then was quite busy finishing up packing the camper. Went to granddaughter's talent show and came home and did some light housework... sure didn't feel like i was "off work" lol.

I will check in before we leave today. I do not think there is wireless out at the campground....i will have my phone but checking the blog is a pain! it uploads oddly. i will check in on facebook as that loads very quickly and easily.

anyway, will check in later today!
everyone have a beatufiul day, light, love, hugs and smiles to all!

magpie said...

wOW THAT WAS LIGHTNING QUICK!
can't even say which adult it was, seems to have made a drop off
and "babies" immediately
mantled it, and
then
Woooooosh, away went the parent

magpie said...

so I guess Hedgie won out and is working on the prize ?

Lolly said...

GOOD MORNING! :) Well, we have sunshine and no rain. Sprinkler system running. Why did I am I not surprised at no rain? Grrrrr!

I know, I know....have NOT stripped naked and danced the Texas Two Step, but I have been shaking the rain stick!!

Look at Hedgie...jumping and flapping!!

Lolly said...

Early Friday afternoon we leave to pick up Zacharooski. Taking him camping in East Texas and taking a ride on a steam engine train. We will be back Sunday.

Then, since we have the trailer, we are heading off, just the two of us, for a few days in the Texas Hill Country! Yea!

magpie said...

Sounds dreamy, Lolly ♥
the first AND the second part
of the plan

Lolly said...

The first part will be a challenge, but we can handle it. Zach is a handful and being away from his routine will be a challenge. He is ready though. I will call him tonight and tell him more about the trip to prepare him.

Lolly said...

Off to start my day! Need to eat and walk. I must say that plotzed eaglets are not very entertaining to watch while walking. LOL

CarolAnne said...

Good warm morning,
Those eaglets are sure growing up fast; wingersizing;; a bit of mantling; too soon they will be branching and out of sight.

Lolly - sounds like such fun. Zachary may surprise you and just make it a really joyful time.

Do not get lost in them there Texas Hills!

I'm thinking camping is just what you need to make it rain. ;o)

CarolAnne said...

In case you need an excuse it's:
NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CHIP DAY!
Enjoy!

magpie said...

Oh CarolAnne, nope I don't need an excuse...!
but there are no choco chips
here at work, will scare some up
at home ☺

I really like your avatar...

Lolly said...

Just finished my walk. Eagles must have heard my complaint. Whole family was in the nest. Parents flew in with a whushi delivery. Not sure who brought it in. Feeding going on at the top of the nest. Looks like Belle from the tail.

No choc chips here. Would like some but will refrain. Trying to keep the girlish figure...you know. :)

Now time to go get street ready!
