Thursday

Lot happening on this windy February day in the nest.  Check the webcam page for an update. 

We have not observed this before at this nest, and while things were civil today they could get rough for the juvenile soon enough.  Time will tell.

New thread.

Thanks Steve for the new thread. Boy, some strange happenings at the nest today! I'll call the others over!

Hoda said...

Thank you both.
Yes on STEVE'S comments.

Sandi said...

I happened to open the live feed before lunch just to check and saw the juvie in the nest! Wow!

Then I read everyone's posts - thanks for the running commentary for those of us who didn't see the whole thing. Will have to wait til i get home to check out the pics and the vdeo of the juvie AND Belle in the nest together. Surely it must have been one of Belle's offspring for her to be so casual about an intruder?

Sandi said...

Lots of calling out - maybe the same juvie is close by?

JudyE said...

thanks for the call over and the new thread Calling out

JudyE said...

stronghunter said...

Hi,

Had to take a break.

Both in nest now. Seem to be watching something.

Lolly said...

Two eagles now!

Judie, glad you heard from Andy. Guess it was an email response.

Have finally eaten and still watching the cam. Interesting, my laptop is running now. Looked at my ipad and it had frozen with one in the nest.

stronghunter said...

Poof one.

Lolly said...

Like Steve's comment about the adult eagles being "civil". Yep, guess that is what you call it.

Shep, just poofed to the tree.

stronghunter said...

So glad you heard from Andy, Judie.

Mema Jo said...


What a morning and now it very well could be What an afternoon. Like Steve said.... This could get rough for the juvie...

It is interrupting our egg laying I feel sure.

Lolly said...

I assume that was Shep. I really can not tell them apart anymore.

Lolly said...

As I arrived home, stopped down by the street to pick up the mail my neighbor stopped by. Her dad died this morning. He was in hospice care. Also, learned the kitty is still hanging around her house. She came running up while we were talking. This upsets me!

Lolly said...

Going to take my ipad to the closet. LOL

JudyE said...

Still there I see and we had both in nest when I was showering also

JudyE said...

LOLLY went back in the the closet with technology LOL

JudyE said...

stronghunter said...

Hold down the fort while I go get Hunter from school. I shall return.

Donnie said...

Hello everyone... It looks like I tuned in just in time to see the juvie invade the nest! Is this the first time or has it been hanging around?
No eggs yet.....

Mema Jo said...

LIVE FEED is acting up again -
Only stays up a very short time
Guess I'll keep trying

Happening to anyone else ??

Mema Jo said...

Thanks Steve for the fresh thread
I can't ever remember a juvie coming into the nest either.

When we lost Lib it was a young mature eagle.

I think it will need to get worse before it can get better. I hope this isn't delaying the eggs but.... who knows. We have had mid Feb egg laying in the past.

Mema Jo said...

Hi Donnie - I hear you are going to be a toll keeper on the tow path!
Charging a toll is almost an impossible task - don't you think!

Happy to see you here. Exciting day we are having today. No eggs yet for this season........

Hope all is well with you

JudyE said...

Mema Jo said...

stronghunter said...

I had my live feed stop once awhile ago. But it stayed up while I was away getting Hunter...or at least it was up when I got back.

BBILW

Lolly said...

Laptop does not keep the cam up but love my iPad. It stays up for hours.??? Finished in the closets. Did three and now have a big pile in one of the bedrooms. Asked Jack where to put it until Laurel has a garage sale. He said a closet. Lol I do not think so!!!

Listened to all the eagle fussing. And, it was fussing not just calling out. Go away, Juvie, one of our babies or not!!

Lolly said...

Uh...what is that in the nest? Won't say what it looks like. Lol

grannyblt said...

Thanks for new thread Steve.
Saw the whole encounter this morning, but had to leave for meeting at one. Has the Juvie returned? MT nest a few minutes ago..

stronghunter said...

Nest MT.

Sandi said...

Ugghh of all days for my cable company to have an outage! can't read my emails or post except using my phone. am going to load the live cam and watch but can't also comment.

If/when belle gets ready to lay an egg, she can't exactly cross her legs and hold it in. an egg is gonna come when it's gonna come. and once there is an egg in the nest belle won't care if that juvie is related to her or not! ok going to try to watch the live feed on my phone. bye!

stronghunter said...

Would really like to see Belle settle in for the night. It will soon be dark.

stronghunter said...

Don't know what that is in the nest, Lolly. I would think some remains of food, but I would think the juvie would have eaten it--if it was there earlier.

stronghunter said...

Need to feed the pets and get dinner started. Hope someone is watching.

JudyE said...

At topdog gun no my nest

Lynne2 said...

Andy checked in on old thread.....

Ms Bookworm has left a new comment on the post "Tuesday":

Knock, knock!

May I come in? Wouldn't be surprised if you all hit me with your eagle canes for causing you such concern! I am so sorry to worry all of you! I apologize!! Ken and I and Emma are all OK. We have just been VERY busy! We had a bit of a worry with Emma when she had to get her rabies vaccine, too. She tends to get an allergic reaction to other vaccines, so had to get a Benadryl and a steroid shot before the vaccine, and a week's worth of homotoxicology therapy to rid her body of toxins from the vaccine. She's come through it OK, and is her old self again!

I truly am sorry to worry all of you! I have had more work to do for the doctor I transcribe for, and Ken has been spending more time on the computer. He has to search for a job in order for our credit card insurance to continue to pay 3 or 4 of our credit card payments since he got laid off of his job last year. The end of this month he will be able to apply again for extended unemployment benefits. He may or may not be approved. Tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of his being "laid off." We're meeting his former work buddy, Chuck, who got laid off the same day, for breakfast tomorrow--so we can
celebrate. Oh--and please say a few prayers for Ken's attorneys.
They are in their "discovery" phase, trying to get Ken's personnel files from his former employer. We suspect that the personnel dept. may pull and shred any of his papers that would not be to their advantage, and there's 48 years worth of stuff there. Ken can't possibly remember everything from that big a chunk of time, so what is there is pretty important. He didn't bring home a copy of every yearly review either, and they wouldn't let him return to his desk when they escorted him out of the building.
Grrrr! Well, enough said.

Yikes!! A juvie at the nest! Could it be that Hedgie (our Lynn) is visiting?! So interesting that Belle & Shep aren't really chasing it off. I wonder how often this happens.

....Golly! Here is where I got interrupted by the City shutting off our power so they could "swap out" our electric meter!! Everything is back on now. I wonder why they swapped out our meter, though. They changed us to their new "smart" meter a couple of years ago. Oh, well.

Once again, let me apologize for worrying all of you!! I've set an alarm on my phone to remind me to check in with you every day!
I'm trying to read back and get caught up on what's happening, too. You all have been included in my prayers, and I hope everyone is doing well. Right now I need to get back to work, so I'll say goodbye for now. I hope to get back here tonight. Have a great day, everyone! Oh, and THANK YOU, Judie, for calling me this morning! It was great to talk to you! I ♥ us!!!

stronghunter said...

Eagle alert!!!!!!!!!!

Poofed already

Lolly said...

Eagle in the nest for a second.

Lolly said...

Hi Shirley! Guess we both saw that touch and go. And, now my cam is not working.

stronghunter said...

Thanks Lynne2, so good to hear from Andy.

JudyE said...

Also so it on still got a snip

stronghunter said...

Yes, that was a touch and go. Not sure which one it was.

stronghunter said...

Still haven't fed pets or started dinner. Must go.

grannyblt said...

I'm watching too. Really fast visit

Mema Jo said...

Andy I really have missed you
So happy to have you back here - even if for only every other day or so.
Missed You Much ♥

Goodnight to ALL
God bless All

I ♥ US

Donnie said...

Jo, I've moved off the river and went to Woodsboro, Frederick county MD. Looks like somebody else is gonna make it rich collecting the tolls on the canal! Now I have Israel Creek and the Monocacy river to explore and photograph. I've got 3 covered bridges within 15 miles!

Lolly said...

Just saw Andy's comment! Thanks, Lynne for bringing it over.

Jack is going to cook breakfast for dinner.

Receiving texts from Laurel who is at Joseph's bb game. They have not won a game since before Christmas. They were ahead by one pt at halftime!

Lolly said...

Can not believe we did not go to Joseph's game! They won!!! Going Sat to see his game and Jacob's game.

Judie said...

Ah, so very happy Andy checked in to say hello. It was just a true pleasure to talk with her today.

Headed for the pillows. Restful sleep for all.

Lolly said...

So you talked with Andy! Great!

Getting on to say good night and surprised to see so few comments! Guess we used up all our talking today!

I am going to miss our all night watching Belle in the nest. A lot of memories of doing just that hoping to see an egg laid.

Ok, time to start getting ready for bed. Night all! SED!

Lolly said...

Uh oh! Judie has lost her avatar! 😱

stronghunter said...

So glad you got to talk with Andy today, Judie. Especially glad that she is okay.

I am very sleepy. It's almost midnight, so I think I will head upstairs. SED, everyone.

stronghunter said...

Very quiet at the Sycamore Palace. No foxes hollering at the moment.

Hoda said...

Lost the icon on iPhone that brings up blog!
Not sure what it is called. Blue in colour. Any Apple people know what I should look for?

Hoda said...

All good!
Found it!
Safari went on a trip!
Oh well it is back.

Goodnight all.
God Bless.

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Everyone,

I've been busy after dinner proof reading doctor reports and cooking rice for Emma. She eats home-made food, since she's allergic to four major foods--turkey, wheat, white fish, and venison. It's so hard to find commercial dog food without any of those things in it.

How on earth are you guys coping with the weather back east? Hope you are managing to stay warm enough that you're not frostbitten! It's actually been surprisingly mild out here, with highs in the mid- to high 70s, and lows in the low 50s. The weather this last year has been so wacky it's difficult to wrap your head around. I heard that San Francisco has had the driest January ever!

Thank you, Lynne2 for bringing my post from earlier over here! I got lost on the old thread, and didn't know it until tonight!

I was watching the video of the juvie in the nest. Wish we had night vision so we could keep watch at night. Is there an egg yet? This is certainly going to be an interesting year at the Sycamore Palace! Well, better get some sleep, because it's getting late. SED, everyone, God bless, and goodnight. I ♥ us!!

NatureNut said...

Good Grief! Juvie AND an egg in nest???
Hope the sun peeks out soon.

Shirley, did you send out a link after 1 AM????? Not opening unless you say it's for real.

Hoda said...

Good morning.
Wide awake.
Feeling rested.
Yet too early to get up.
Blessed Be the day for all of us.

Sandi said...

Goodorming Loretta and all my eagle friends. I am back online. Cable and internet were out all last night so I wasn't able to finish an IEP. I will be scrambling at school this morning!

Paula, enjoy your trip to MS - hope you and Larry find a place you like!

Andy, welcome back to the blog!

Jo, prayers that Elliot is doing better every day.

16 degrees here - feels like 9.

The moon is still out here but the live cam is too dark to see anything at the nest. Hoping for a calm day in Shepherdstown and for an egg arrival!

Have agreat day all!

Sandi said...

Goodorming Hoda - psst ... it's too early for you to go skiing! ;)

Hoda said...

Yep! SANDI!
In 7 hours. Yoga first.
Ski.
Then in evening advanced yoga.
Volunteer in between.
Take it easy at school today.
