Good morning to all ♥

Thank you Steve for the fresh new
Monday morning thread.

Breakfast in the nest - good sign
I guess. Anxiously awaiting a
first egg.

Calling the others over

stronghunter said...

Good morning, Jo.

Thanks for the morning call-over.

Thanks for the new thread, Steve. Hoping this will be the day.

stronghunter said...

Good to see you here, Jo. I have to go get ready for my adventures.

grannyblt said...

Thanks for new thread Steve and Mema Jo for the call over. Can't tell what was on the breakfast menu.

Mema Jo said...

Belle finished breakfast
Sitting in egg cup nice and pretty

Lynne2 said...

ALRIGHT.....NO ONE MOVE OR MAKE A SOUND.

LET THE EAGLE LAY AN EGG.

SHHHHHHHH

stronghunter said...

she is holding out her wings.

stronghunter said...

I am whispering.

WVJerry said...

Thanks Steve and Jo. Been off Cam for a while...getting ready to leave soon. I will try to check Blog if we have lunch. I will try Cam again but it wasn't working for me last I checked.

Sandi said...

Just popping in for a second and I see we have a new thread (thanks so much Steve - we really filled that one up in a hurry) AND an eagle sitting in the egg cup!! Oh my, could something be happening??? I should be in a math class right now (classes just switched) but I think I will sit her for just a minute or two and watch Miss Belle!!

Fingers crossed ...

Lynne2 said...

keep your voices down!!!!


Work is seriously interfering with my egg watches

Mema Jo said...

Oh No
I hope it's the egg coming and
not the rain

Come on Belle

Happy so many eyes are on her..

stronghunter said...

whispering , ,,

Is it raining there, Jo?

stronghunter said...

She is up.

Kay said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!

Glory be, this could be THE day!!!

Hope so, for as I mentioned before, this is my son's birthday.

NCSuzan said...

Yes, Jo. Wonder if she is feeling the pressure?

stronghunter said...

I do not see an egg.

stronghunter said...

False labor????

Kay said...

Thanks to STEVE for the nice new thread and to our fine feathered JO for the call over!!!

stronghunter said...

No egg yet. But that was interesting.

NCSuzan said...

Rain here today but not until later.

Now we are going to take off?

stronghunter said...

Poof. Took food I think.

stronghunter said...

Nest is empty.

Kay said...

Apparently Belle was just meditating and thinking of what is to come. Poof, carrying off a little leftover food as she went.

stronghunter said...

Good morning, Kay. Happy birthday to your son.

stronghunter said...

BBL. Must finish getting ready to go out.

Kay said...

Thank you, SHIRLEY! Lee was born on this date and he and I left the hospital on Valentine's Day. Best Valentine's Day present the family ever received!

Will be lurking and anxiously waiting for that EGG!

Love and prayers for all in need!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Lynne2 said...

Darn bird

Mema Jo said...

Sure didn't care for the 9:47am Fly Out. Something distracted Belle.
Not sure if all the crows around did it or not.....

Mema Jo said...

Kay I sure hope Lee's b-day is honored with our 1st egg. Belle has missed 4 Momster's b-days - that is
not nice... Glo, Sandra, Helen and Jill

So let's go for Lee's Day

Mema Jo said...


It as funny that she took her leftovers with her

grannyblt said...

I was on the phone but saw the fly out with the breakfast remains. Will try to keep cam on today.

Lynne2 said...

I am done watching eagles not laying eggs today.

Lynne2 said...

Judie, did they come about the cats on Saturday?

Lynne2 said...

Puddles is here today, having dental with 2 broken teeth being extracted. I am nervous!

stronghunter said...

Hope all goes well at the dentist, Lynne2. Must go. BBL.

Lynne2 said...

Steve is beside himself. OMG. Poor guy!

Gotta go for now....BBL

Lolly said...

Good morning! Poor Puddles, but I am sure Puddles is in good hands!

I have checked the cam twice, have yet to see an eagle! Saw where you thought today was it! Oh, well! Egg will come.

Jo, Jack read the article you sent and he has received an email from a friend. He is getting a clearer picture. Also, has an appointment this afternoon. Thank you!

Going to do our morning walking, do a little house straightening and then outside? Another beautiful day coming up. Already 63. Think we are going to paint the picket fence around the herb garden. Started that last year but never finished the job. Not fun! Need to replace it with a white plastic fence!😝

I am so excited and ready to go on a trip. Maybe next month. I told Jack yesterday I want to travel with Skippi. He has always said no as he did not want a cat box in the trailer. Yesterday he was open to the idea!! Yea! I think she will travel great. We will just have to take a short trip to try it out. So excited!

Mema Jo said...



EAGLE ALERT

One in the nest

Mema Jo said...

Our eagle was preening then looking upward and then FLY OUT

MT Nest

JudyE said...

hELLO ON LUNCH NO EGG YET


THANKS FOR THE NEW THREAD STEVE


WE WANT A GG

JudyE said...

WE are getting rain with the cold front one of you all have sent to us Hi will be 60 tomorrow in 40 night

JudyE said...

Eagle calls

Lolly said...

Have finished walking. Eagles in the tree the whole time as we heard calling out many times. Jack says eagles should have a more elegant call. lol He says the rs hawk has a better call. What does he know? Also, think I heard hp in the attic one time, a different call and wing flapping.

Now to attack my hair and do a little inside.

JudyE said...

Eagle call again

JudyE said...

I keep loosing live on laptop but not tablet
Want to read kindle but with laptop being a 30sec I am using both no reading at lunch I guess

Mema Jo said...

Judy - I keep posting these pics into our momsters' album...

I don't like them in so much disarray but it is too much trouble trying to organize them.,,,

Kay said...

Wow, I just walked by in time to see a big camera bump---assume an eagle just landed or took off. It makes it look like an earthquake is shaking the nest. Have sure heard a lot of eagle talk today.

stronghunter said...

Eagle in!

stronghunter said...

Back from PT. Soon heading to Hunter's school to pick him up for an appointment.

Mema Jo said...

In flew an eagle

Wonder how long of a visit we will
have

stronghunter said...

Checking out the egg cup.

Mema Jo said...


Found a chunk of leftover

stronghunter said...

Having a snack of one of those strange things in the nest.

stronghunter said...

Crows still hollering.

stronghunter said...

Second eagle in.

stronghunter said...

Belle settling into the cup again. Now up.

Mema Jo said...

Both in nest

Belle in egg cup

Mema Jo said...

Both digging and digging to
deepen the egg cup
Must not have been comfy

stronghunter said...

Poof--I think it was Shep. Belle on egg cup.

stronghunter said...

And now eating again.

stronghunter said...

Shep back. Arranging flugg.

stronghunter said...

Must go. BBL.

Mema Jo said...



I wish I could see or know what
the problem is - they are really being distracted....... and I just know they are as frustrated as
we are

Mema Jo said...

lol
They both flew out very quickly and within the next minute one was back and had something to feed on - our other eagle arrived and I swear it looks like black feathers - you think they caught a crow! They are both having a feast!

Lolly said...

Ahhhh, I finally get to see two eagles!

Lolly said...

Funny little chirps to each other! Must be love!

Lolly said...

Oh, yes, lots of black feathers in the nest!

Lolly said...

Shep, I think, poofed and Belle still chewing down.

Lolly said...

Still chowing!

Lolly said...

Shep back in with fresh flugg. Now working on the rails and Belle still chowing down.

Lolly said...

Shep poofed. Belle still chowing! Lol

Lolly said...

Wow! Shep back in with a tiny fish that Belle immediately grabbed! She was really hungry!

Judie said...

Nothing better than a late lunch of air (crow) and stream (fish).

Hope Belle will deliver a birthday egg for Kay's Lee.

Sandi said...

Thanks for the running commentary on our eagles' activities today. I wonder if that juvie eagle is still around and serving as more of a distraction this week than last?

Belle doing a lot of eating in the nest is a good sign.

Jenni has an appointment with the vet after school today. I want him to take a look at the tumor in her mouth that he found back in August. To me it looks like it has grown; then again, I never saw the tumor when he did the first surgery on it b/c the vet didn't find it until Jenni was under anesthesia for her dental 6 months ago.

Will check in this evening and hope to find an eagle planted in the nest for the night.

TTFN!

Lolly said...

Poof Belle, I think. Shep now looking for leftovers.

Mema Jo said...

HERE WE GO AGAIN

BOTH IN THE NEST

Mema Jo said...

One poof

One digging in the egg cup

Mema Jo said...

Getting a little windy up there in the nest

Mema Jo said...

She went Poof !

WVJerry said...

Good afternoon. Thanks for the reports. Saw 2 in nest now just 1. No egg today?

Mema Jo said...

they both came back - Belle was eating something - she settled into the egg cup - Shep then flew off -
Belle is there alone - doesn't look like she is completely down in the egg cup - Up and moving - on alert -

POOF !

WVJerry said...

MT now.

Mema Jo said...


Hi Jerry

Busy today - in/out in/out
Same old same old

No egg :(

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Gang,
Been watching the nest, and still no egg! Come on, Belle!

Thought I'd drop in and say howdy.
Not much happening here--except it's supposed to get up into the high 80s Wednesday through Saturday this week--yikes! I just don't understand what's happening with our weather.

We do have some house finches and a pair of Black Phoebes making nests under our house eaves. Will let you know when I hear baby birds.

Ken bought us a nice big tomato plant, with lots of flowers on it. Hope we soon have tomatoes!!

Need to fix lunch. Will check in again tonight. Have a great day!
I ♥ us!!!

WVJerry said...

Hi Jo. Thanks. I am going to watch some more. Went thrift store shopping...didn't find much there. Just lost Cam...probably not going to be able to watch now.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Andy

Fresh home grown tomatoes - Sounds so good as they are favorites for me

Take care and enjoy the warmth
We are expecting rain later....

Our crazy EAGLES are driving me crazy trying to capture an egg being
laid. No Such Luck Yet
TTUL

WVJerry said...

Cam back up.

JudyE said...

Hello home from work and Thanks all who commented on the eagle visit Why are they being so stubborn this year with giving us a egg

they have had plenty of practice as we all have witnessed

paula eagleholic said...

MT NEST

Mema Jo said...

It has been an exhausting day following them in and out then in and out. Each time you would see
sitting in the egg cup then zoom
out she would fly. I think there was a distraction

They had a tasty meal once - black feathers ........ ???????????

Mema Jo said...

Hi Paula
Have you returned home from
Biloxi, MS

stronghunter said...

Good evening,

Nest empty.

It has been quite a day at the Sycamore Palace. Eagles come and eagles go. Still no egg.

Mema Jo said...

They have one more hour left to come in for the night! There was a video
after dark that you could see their
white feathers in the nest but of course they flew off.

stronghunter said...

Will be dark soon. It has gotten colder and there has been a bit of rain here. Snow showers in the forecast for tonight and tomorrow morning.

Sandi said...

Hi all - home from the vet with great news about Jenni! He said the tumor in her mouth has grown very little if any at all! There is no sign of loose teeth around the tumor, no bad breath, and no sign that the tumor is ulcerated or infected. I am soooo relieved!

So, it seems that yet another day will go by without an egg from our eagles. In their own time ...

Welcome home Paula! How was house-hunting?

Time to fix food for people and pets!

Later!

Mema Jo said...


Dinner time here - BBL

Mema Jo said...


Dinner time here - BBL

Mema Jo said...

3 guesses what time it is at my house.

on yes, the first 2 don't count lol

WVJerry said...

Nest is still MT and I think I hear rain drops.

stronghunter said...

Good news, Sandi!

Enjoy your dinner, Jo.

I am heading to the kitchen to scare up something to eat.

I did remember to pay the mortgage today. :)

stronghunter said...

Nest still empty as it fades into darkness.

JudyE said...

Colors gone

JudyE said...

Come on eagles

JudyE said...

unless we hear them fly in the nest is to dark to see

Mema Jo said...


I give up viewing for tonight

I can't make out noise on the live feed other then wind. I don't think I hear any wings flapping...

Daybreak perhaps will get our surprise!

BBL

WVJerry said...

Lost sight of nest. I'm going to sign off for the night. Sandi - Also glad to hear your dog got a good report. I will watch for your morning reports from work on early break. Hope next anouncemnet is an eagle in nest and an egg. Good night and take care all.

JudyE said...

I am keeping cam open for sound if they call out or maybe landing in the nest lOL
gonna go watch some DVR stuff

stronghunter said...

Checking in once more. Cam view is black.

Lolly said...

Just came in and hard to believe the cam is sooooo black. Still sunshine here!

Did not paint but sat on the far front lawn and dug dandiions. Listened to and watched rs Hawks while working. Just a beautiful day.

Then we sat on the patio and had a glass of wine!

Lynne2 said...

WOW it is like an ICE RINK here....

Puddy did just fine, broken tooth out, stitches in, canned food only for next 7 days. Poor baby, don't know HOW she'll stand it! She also had a nipple/lump removed. There has been a slightly enlarged nipple for about a year but it's gotten a bit bigger and had some discharge today so they took that out. Not expecting any bad news.

Lynne2 said...

Steve on phone with his mom. She fell on the ice in the driveway today and hurt her arm pretty badly. Great. There is not supposed to BE ice, the landlord is supposed to be taking care of it!!!! I've got one unhappy hubby.....

stronghunter said...

Oh my, so sorry, Lynne2. I hope Steve's mother is okay. Wondering what tomorrow is going to bring here. Really not supposed to be cold enough for ice.

The kitchen cabinet has been put back up. I stayed out of the way. Of course, there will be plenty for me to do. Someone has to put all of those dishes back in the cabinet.

I am going to say good night and head upstairs. Bowling tomorrow. Physical therapist told me to be careful.

SED, everyone.

JudyE said...

Lynne2 so sorry about MIL
Shirley good luck bowling and take it easy


JudyE said...

Security system is armed please be sure to use your code if out past curfew

Well I'm calling it a day

Mema Jo said...

Lynne2 Sure hope your mil only has soreness in her arm and no breaks.
I hate it that she even went outside.
It is nasty out there.

Mema Jo said...

I am ready to call it a day -
Tomorrow just maybe an egg but sure
wish they would have had this egg 2 to 3 days ago because now the nest is
wet and icy I'm sure.


GOODNIGHT TO ALL AND GOD BLESS ♥

Hoda said...

Thank you for reports.
Very busy day. Lots got done on very little sleep last night.

KRD AGM is in the books. The people who meant to cause trouble kept their peace. I am relieved.

Rained all day.
Thinking of driving with friends two hours to find some snow to ski!!!
It takes less than ten minutes to get to the ski club here.

Lolly said...

Lynne, so sorry about your MIL! Hope no broken bones!

Did not go tonight to Joseph's bb game. They won and Joseph had his best game ever. Might know! Anyway, his season is now over and now on to track and soccer. Wish I had a small portion of his energy!

Tomorrow eye appointment, yearly check up. Hate getting my eyes dilated! Oh, well.

Maybe an egg tomorrow! We shall see!

Night all! SED!

Sandi said...

Goodorming my eagle friends. 32 degrees here with 20 mph winds from the northeast so it feels like 12 degrees and rain, rain, and more rain! YUK!!

Can't see a thing at the nest but I hear wind there as well.

Lynne, I hope Steve's mom is just sore.

Have agreat day all - fingers crossed for an egg today, even in this nasty weather.

JudyE said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds

JudyE said...

WOW we have Blizzard Bear at 491 this am

grannyblt said...

Both were in nest but only one now

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Icy here.

School delayed 2 hours, but I have bowling.

Asked Will to take Hunter to school.

I'll be watching the blog.

grannyblt said...

Now nest is MT. Another "in and out" day? I'm off to shower then to get haircut, so I'll catch up later.

WVJerry said...

Good morning thanks gb for early report. Nest MT now.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Opened the cam to an empty and very windy nest. Time to read the paper and drink my coffee. I'll be back!

WVJerry said...

It was cold this morning and scraped ice of car windows and grass was icy too. Sounds breezy ar MT nest. I will check at lunch. Take care all.

Mema Jo said...

Good morning to all ♥

Icy now but temps are suppose to
be warming today. Car had to be scraped before hubby could go for coffee and donuts.

Of course I sae the MT nest earlier
but now
EAGLE ALERT
BOTH IN THE NEST

Mema Jo said...

i AM WONDERING WHAT THE 'NEST PLAN' IS FOR TODAY.

Whoops - sorry all caps

NCSuzan said...

There was an attempt at HP when Belle flew in to the nest but I am not sure it "took"!

Rainy and yucky here but no ice.

NCSuzan said...

Yeah, Jo. This back and forth is giving me whiplash!!!

Mema Jo said...

Live feed right now only giving me a minute or less of being on. It is
windy and perhaps that is the reason.

NCSuzan said...

They are just as calm and normal as can be while we are all excited and waiting for the eggcitement to happen.

Shirley, be careful today.

Lynne2, sorry your MIL fell and is injured. Hope it is not a severe injury.

Shep flew the coop!

NCSuzan said...

My live feed has been sporadic also. Think it has been up for about five minutes though now.

Mema Jo said...

Shep flew out over the 7 Position poof!
Belle still in nest

Mema Jo said...

Hi Suzan

No sure I can take another day of
this - lol

NCSuzan said...

Need to get dressed! These birds are making me nervous to leave the cam!

Have a safe morning!

NCSuzan said...

Know what you mean, Jo!

Mema Jo said...

Blizzard Bear of Glo's is at
499.......
One of you go to FB Eaglet Momsters
and

VOTE

carolinabeachmom said...

Good morning all. I have had trouble getting in here again, so have changed my password. I hope this works.

carolinabeachmom said...

I was trying to get in here to tell you that I saw HP on the nest, but I see that NC Susan has already said that.

Mema Jo said...

Yeah Candy - it did work

carolinabeachmom said...

We are having another rainy, windy, cloudy and cold day here today. My live cam has been on all morning. Sounds very windy at the nest. 1 eagle still in the nest.

carolinabeachmom said...

Well, now that is two times I have seen. Maybe that is what they have been waiting for. Hopefully no snow is predicted in your area.

Mema Jo said...

Lag time between the 2 cams is longer then usual. My live feed is staying up a bit longer

Belle is up now and digging the egg cup deeper......

Mema Jo said...

Hurray for Shep

Lunch has arrived to pretty Belle

While she eats, Shep is digging again in the egg cup.
Hope Belle puts something in that cup. I hope she gets her crop filled, does a poop shoot and settles down

carolinabeachmom said...

Both in nest again. Just looking around and an occasional fix of the nest.

Lolly said...

#500. Lol Went to vote earlier, saw where it was and waited. Do I get a prize? Smile on my face, silly me!

Have been watching. Saw the hp! Come on egg!

Off to eat breakfast. Will still be watching! Love my iPad!

Mema Jo said...

One went POOF

Distraction ??????????
Or going for more food ?????????

carolinabeachmom said...

Well that is the end of lunch and togetherness. Only one remains.

Mema Jo said...

WVJerry said...

Checking in at lunch. Thanks for today's reports. Nest is MT I see. Will check back when I get home later.

Lolly said...

Sitting in doctor's office waiting for my eyes to dilate. More fun! NOT! No change in my vision, no new glasses. Now for the rest of the exam!

stronghunter said...

Hi,

Home from bowling and lunch with friends. I would like to sleep now, but first need to get Hunter from school.

I see we still do not have an egg.

carolinabeachmom said...

Hi Shirley,
No one in the nest and no, no egg. :(
I think they are somewhere holding on for dear life so the wind doesn't blow them away!

carolinabeachmom said...

Lolly, I have to go to the eye drs next Wednesday. :( I have to go now every 4 months and just hate it. I am glad to see that you made out ok at your appointment!

stronghunter said...

501 votes for "Blizzard Bear."

Lolly said...

Home now! Think I am going to shut my eyes and take a nap. If I can! I am not sleepy but need to close my eyes until back to normal. Will return in a year.

Lolly said...

Lol. Will return to the eye doc in a year! You are stuck with me!😜

Lolly said...

Here it is 77 and I can not go outside! Grrrrr!

Mema Jo said...

WVJerry said...

Still in cup.

Mema Jo said...

Leaving for a few hours

Lolly said...

Belle is standing in the egg cup.

WVJerry said...

By JO. Still in cup.

WVJerry said...

Hi Lolly. I am watching with phone...can't as close as you. Glad you are to watch along.

WVJerry said...

I've lost the Cam now.

Lolly said...

Still in the nest and fussing with the flugg.

Lolly said...

Refresh Jerry!

WVJerry said...

Thanks Lolly.

Lolly said...

Trying out the egg cup. Thought she was going to settle, but NO! Awww, come on Belle!

WVJerry said...

Finally got live feed back.

Lolly said...

Can not tell if she is sitting or standing but still in the egg cup.

Lolly said...

Good Jerry. Nothing happening.

Lolly said...

Come on Belle, be considerate. Going to get dark soon!

WVJerry said...

Still standing in egg cup.

WVJerry said...

Looks like standing...hard for me to tell on phone. Should be light about a half hour.

JudyE said...

I see still I cup at gym

stronghunter said...

Hi,

Having lots of trouble keeping the cam up this evening. I see Belle over the egg cup. She doesn't looked settled in.

stronghunter said...

Yes, it is dusk now.

WVJerry said...

Hi Shirley...she's pretty much been like this for an hour I guess. Lolly has seen more than me since I lost Cam.

stronghunter said...

Hoping Kathryn is taking a different route home. She encountered some kind of riot last night and had to get out of there in a hurry. Scary.

Lolly said...

She worked on the flugg. I can not tell if she is sitting or standing from this angle and my eyes are still dilated.

WVJerry said...

Looks like she's on alert for some reason.

Lolly said...

Still in nest, have decided she is sitting. Looking around but it is getting dark.

JudyE said...

Got the live feed up

JudyE said...

OK recall how long was last couple year . Hours?????????? I forget
