Mema Jo said…
THANK YOU for the fresh new thread - I didn't blow away yet and so thankful the Sycamore Palace is doing well.

Thanks Janet for the 'shout out'
I'm not sure we should take a feather as Belle and Shep need all they have to keep warm ! lol
Mema Jo said…
As I said on the older thread - Our pipes are frozen - I am praying there are no leaks! BBL
WVJerry said…
Good morning. Thanks Janet. Thanks Steve for new thread. Jo. - hope you get pipes un-froze. Windy and cold here. Snow did not amount to much here. Been watching Cam off and on. I did taxes Thursday and noticed I entered two identical address lines. Return was accepted but now worried it will mess something up. Also filed for two Healthcare exemptions. The way I understood thingy I was to file out more than one page but didn't. Guess time will tell. Stay warm.
magpie said…
Thanks Janet.....for the New Thread Alert ! I just went over to re-announce it...I saw SHIRLEY over there ☺

Oh Frozen Pipes....I bet just about all of us have unpleasantly experienced that !!!!!

be Careful on the resolution of that, Jo and your family....

Good Morning.. !

Janet...might you get some "bad" weather from this next upcoming
"Storm Octavia"
magpie said…
and done and I did not really SEE anything because I was too late checking !!
grannyblt said…
Good morning again. Do we have two eggs? I'll watch as time permits today. Stay warm everyone. And no gloating from our TX and CA bloggers😋
Hoda said…
Good morning.
Thank you for the new thread.
Sooooooooo HAPPY to see the MAGPIE on here being a magpie and announcing splits and all. So very miss you gal!

Wished we could get MISS JUDIE to visit more often and regularly. I sooooooooo very much miss her and her wisdom and my oh my her sense of humour.
How I enjoyed meeting her through her back and forth bantering with LADY LYNN...
COME BACK JUDIE.
Love you and miss you.
Hoda said…
GRANNYBLT from what I understand not yet on the two eggs
Sandi said…
Hi all. Boy is it ever cold and windy here in WV!

Jo so sorry to hear you and Ed have frozen pipes. Read on FB that Shar and Thelma do too.

My sister and Madeline are coming for a visit today. Hope they don't blow away on the drive over.

Later all - have a great day!
Lolly said…
Good morning! Running late as we slept late! Will read back later. Glad to see no snow on Belle and just saw an egg roll and just one egg! Come on Belle!

Later Gators! Gotta run!
Hoda said…
Odd my email box is checked on the blog.
No emails arriving to Gmail however!!!
What is up with that???
Any one know how to solve this?
magpie said…
both our adults at the nest, something has them upset
magpie said…
Any more EYES on here with me ??
the roosting parent had gotten up, flew off, the second parent came in, then the original parent did....

then all this started
WVJerry said…
Wow. I hear same thing Margy. Not sure what is going on. now. Both in nest egg uncovered.
magpie said…
I hear TWO eagles calling out...not sure if it's the two on the nest or not
magpie said…
Okay, there goes one....not sure if Belle or Shep....

and FOOD came in..which is being devoured now....

WVJerry said…
just one now, appers to be eating now.
magpie said…
so I'm thinking in my heart...that Belle flew off briefly, Shep brought in food,
they both stayed there during the fretful period,
Shep Leaves...Belle Eats...and will soon ROOST on that Eggbert


Thanks Jerry, good to know I was not freaking out alone !
WVJerry said…
Egg still uncovered and still eating.
magpie said…
but it was just seconds, that the egg was there all by itself...
and all the rest is just guessing on my part
WVJerry said…
Yeah. I was working on some tax return stuff and heard all this noise from my phone and started watching...you saw more. Good job making reports.
WVJerry said…
Getting back on egg now.
WVJerry said…
I've got to leave for a while. Nice visiting Margy. Will check back later.
magpie said…
It's rare that I can do it, Jerry...just hanging around the roost here '
'til I work a short shift in a little while..

I did not even SEE that is was food until the parent eagle finally flew off after BIG SHADOW -
there is still half a fish there I think...I hope the other parent takes it, eats it, or hides it...

HODA: thanks, for your kind remarks....and to all, always !!
xoxo
Hoda said…
Love you MARGY.
Enjoy your day.
stronghunter said…
Good afternoon,

Egg roll. Couldn't see how many eggs are there. Wiggle, wiggle. Very quick.

Thanks for the new thread, Steve.

Congratulations on the feather, Janet.

Wonderful to see our Margy here.

Brought over my posts on the other thread:

Good morning,

I did get outdoors long enough to fill the bird feeders and put fresh water in the bird bath.

Saw an eagle hunkered down in the nest.

Snow on the ground below the nest, but not on the nest. Mighty cold, though.

stronghunter said…
Well, we are having hairdryer issues today.

Kathryn's blows cold air--not good on such a cold day, so I said to use mine. Somehow, mine got fried. Kathryn said it was scary, and we lost power to the bathroom circuits. Taught Hunter how to re-set with the button in the garage. Kathryn is off to the store for groceries and two hairdryers.
JudyE said…
WOW ASunday THRRAD.



THANKS FOR THE NEW ONE STEVE




ON LUNCH
. 1207 PUNCH
JudyE said…
Soo Sorry about the pipes Shirley. I remember my parent putting high watt bulbs under house and in hood on car
Also left water drip drip dripping
JudyE said…
I see snow on the ground at nest so happy not in nest
JudyE said…
OK gonna go read Kindle rest of lunch
magpie said…
I only know one thing to pass along about heating appliances...

Shirley...
(and I figure this is not what occurred at your place..)

any heating item should not be
plugged into the same outlet with another heating item...for example,
electric blanket, and steam iron...
or curling iron...

it does something to the electronics...I learned it the hard way, unfortunately....but there was no fire danger, just
ruined the electric blanket...

Wonky, your situation...
sorry about it !!
stronghunter said…
No frozen pipes so far at my house, Judy. At least not that I know of . . . we sometimes get frozen pipes in the laundry room, so we heat that room up with an electric heater whenever cold weather is predicted.

As far as I know, we only had one heated appliance going when the dryer quit. She said it wouldn't work in my bathroom she took it into her bedroom where it died an electrifying death. We figure the bathroom circuit might have gone out because of the defective dryer.

At one point, the bathroom outlet circuit was connected to the basement and the outdoor outlets, as well as one outlet in the kitchen, but we had that changed because Will was using electricity in the basement and we were always overloading. I still try to be careful about plugging in the hairdryer at the same time as the curling iron. Also have found that the vacuum cleaner uses a lot of electricity.

Heard some eagle calls . . . must check.
stronghunter said…
Need to run the carpet shampooer while everyone is gone. BBL.

It is good that eagles are tough birds.

I do not see any drama at the nest, though . . . just lots of wind and a swaying nest.
Mema Jo said…
Good news - WATER IS UP/RUNNING

Thanks for all the nest commentary. I only have the still cam up.

Mema Jo said…
Sandi - Your most recent pic on FB
of Freyja is too adorable! Hope you use it for your Avatar on here.
Kay said…
Good Afternoon Eagle Buds!!!

Oh, Happy Day--a new thread thanks to the ever faithful STEVE and a call over by JANET--in addition to that we have a cold, windy day at the nest, but no big snow build up for Belle and Shep to contend with.

Are you Nest Reporters thinking that "sub-adult" was back again? If so it looks like things are now under control.

Our high today will be 6 and I don't even want to know about the wind chill factor. Penny has not been outside for more than 2 min. in the last 24 hours--she gets right at "it" and leads me back to the door.

Forecast is for a miserable week--think I'll cancel an appt. as well as doggy play day and stay hunkered down til' this polar whatever plays itself out.

The TV weather guys say to leave several household faucets dribbling in order to prevent frozen pipes. Wonder if that works with the extremes we're having now. Fortunately there is a well insulated basement under my condo and with four apts. in the building there is undoubtedly the frequent running of water. I've washed two loads of clothes and have run the dishwasher today with no problem. Whew!

Have as good a day as possible and get ready to enjoy tomorrow's holiday if you have it off!

Love and Prayers for all in need!!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
WVJerry said…
Egg uncovered someone eating at about 5 position now.
Mema Jo said…
Wish we had 2 eggs in there Jerry
WVJerry said…
Yes I agree Jo. Glad your water is OK now.
WVJerry said…
Maybe it's today Jo...I've got no knowledge like you all have. Just been enjoying what I am able to see.
NatureNut said…
Wow! What weather! I was really wrong last night predicting rain! About 7 PM we got fat snowflakes even tho it was 40°!!! Later the wind picked up and guess it got so cold our less than 1" snow didn't blow away! Got down to 20° and we have 22° right now, lots of sun but still some wind. Global Warming?????
Of course last night was the first Nascar prelim Race. The Biggy will be next Sunday, still at Daytona. Matt Kenseth won last night~~~have to get accustomed to hearing race motors going around in a circle again!!!
I haven't seen Belle stand up, but guess there isn't a 2nd egg. Thank goodness!
Will try to dwnld more Park nest pics. Saw one that has a tiny head top!
Stay Warm and Healthy ☺ ♥
WVJerry said…
NN - I wanted to watch race...fell asleep during introductions. Don't really have a favorite driver but I do like Matt. My Mom likes Jimmy Johnson - so I kinda root for him.
Lolly said…
Home now and have the cam up. We gotta get an egg soon!

73 here and sunny though the clouds are starting to move in. Chance of rain tonight, bigger chance tomorrow, and then a chance of snow. WHAT?? It is 73 !!! Oh, yes, I forgot....it is Texas!
Hoda said…
My blog email was going to spam!!??
Moved it to in box and hope this fixed it.

Glad you have water KO.
Hope to hear from SHAR soon.
Hoda said…
Now you are forewarned!!!

I AM GOING TO SCREAM AND YELL A D JUMP UP AND DOWN IF TEXAS GETS SNOW AND WEDTERN CANADA NOT!!!
( yes I fo understand it is not Zen like behaviour) BUT seriously TEXAS with snow and Western Canada NOT????
stronghunter said…
Oh dear me, Hoda. You want more snow? I guess you might get your fill of it in Boston.

We do not have snow, but there is some in the forecast.

I have finished shampooing the family room. Still need to do the dining room. Should do the sofa and recliner, but that would leave us with nowhere to sit in here, so I will have to think about that.

Birds are really enjoying my bird bath with the heater, and I did see a squirrel get a drink as well. He sat on the porch steps and could easily reach the bird bath from there. Nice to see them get what they need. Even saw one bird fly out of the middle of the bath. I wouldn't think many of them want to bathe . . . the water isn't all that warm.
Hoda said…
SHIRLEY we have no snow...zip nada, nothing...
When I go to volunteer and yoga I will wear shoes today!!! Unheard of!
Who wears shoes in the middle of February in Canada!!!
This girl will as boots are too hot for the weather we have...
RIDICULOUS!!!

Janet said…
good afternoon all.

supposedly we have a snow storm coming. not supposed to start til tonight. we are going to Chelsea's for dinner. Olivia wishes to extend her wkend stay there by a day or two to play in the anticipated snow with the kids. so will take over extra clothes and sleds.

I am not holding my breath, but ifit does good. we have food, clothes, shovels. bring it.

I think if Hoda starts a snow tantrum we should consider feeding her a brownie..............

Mema Jo said…

Per Deb:
I think we have a second egg just waiting for visual confirmation now

Keep your eyes on the nest
Mema Jo said…
Head is tucked under wing
Either too windy or a nap
NCSuzan said…

NCSuzan said…

Blackwater Refuge Nest Update

Chick Alert!
We have our first chick. This chick was a little late, so we don't know how quickly the others will come.
Lolly said…
Well, missed the arrival of the second egg. Sat here this afternoon with the cam going. Then ran some errands. We got Skippi a harness and she has accepted it. No problem. This is in preparation of taking her traveling with us. Then ran to the grossssserie store. Going to make my Valentine a lemon pie tomorrow. I know....a little late.

We just came in. An Eastern Bluebird America and took a bath in the birdbath will we were out. Actually ther were two! See them so seldom. It is 67 but cloudy and damp. We have had a few sprinkles!

Hoda, hang in there. Surely you will get more snow. Not sure what will happen here.
JudyE said…

Lynne2 said…
Codorus does have an egg as well!
stronghunter said…
Just got notified . . . Hunter's school is on a two-hour delay tomorrow. It is so cold. I am wondering if there might be snow, too.

Full day for me tomorrow . . . Physical therapy, meeting with the cleaning lady, then an appointment for Hunter.
stronghunter said…
Read back and saw the news about the second egg. Need to see more details, so I will continue reading back.
JudyE said…

JudyE said…

stronghunter said…
Wow, Lynne2,

That is quite a forecast. I am going to look at what is about to happen here.
stronghunter said…
Oh dear, Hoda. You have 42 degrees. We have 19.
stronghunter said…
And that five-inch snow is for us, too.
JudyE said…
watching Debi video of the intruder I sure wish we knew what was out there the juvie??? sure wish we had eyes on the ground So sad to hear then
stronghunter said…
I have a feeling that we might not be playing bridge on Wednesday night.
JudyE said…
that should have been DEB not DEBI that is what got me in deep dog doo doo before
JudyE said…
you can see shadow of something fly over the nest at 310
JudyE said…
It breaks my heart of watch the video of our sweet Belle so upset she goes on and on You can see her track the intruder also several times must be circling the nest
JudyE said…
I wonder if when Shep flew off did he chase away because Belle started eating then also
I wonder when the food was brought in by Belle? when she landed maybe
JudyE said…
HMM I am thinking Belle lands with food maybe someone was following her to steal what she had and Shep saw that flew off and then they both landed Just a thought
stronghunter said…
