Good Monday Morning to All ♥

Thank you Steve for the fresh new thread & may we use it to comment about our Eagle season beginning with the hatching of 2 more eggs.

I'll welcome the others over
Sandi said…
Quick check in and I see a new thread. Thanks Steve and thanks Jo for the call over.

Wanted to let everyone know that my students and I watched a feeding at the nest at 8am this morning. The kids loved seeing that little ball of fluff being fed, even without the Smartboard. We were all crowded around my desktop monitor!

Bye!

stronghunter said…
Good morning again!!

Thanks for the new thread, Steve, and for the call-over, Jo.
stronghunter said…
I am hearing all kinds of eagle talk. Not sure if it is a video playing or what. Trying to figure it out.
stronghunter said…
So glad your students got to see the feeding, Sandi. I always enjoyed showing the eagles to my students. And the bears as well.
Mema Jo said…
Shirley, your video of the feeding turned out to be fantastic. Thanks
for sharing !

Today this Mema is going to Jennifer's for an Easter Egg hunt with her greats! Beautiful day and the family fun will make my day!
stronghunter said…
And I did figure out what I was hearing. I had a YouTube video running since I was still linked there. By the time I got to it, it was Deb's highlights of 2013.
stronghunter said…
Enjoy your visit, Mema Jo.
Mema Jo said…
I've been looking for Deb Stecyk!
Kay is ok - did have some virus - she'll be here - not to worry.
Mema Jo said…
Shirley - FB Eaglet Momsters needs your video & so does OD site - it is great

Glo your picture is really good

Hope another hatch happens but there were 3 days in between `1st and 2nd egg being laid.
Mema Jo said…
Both in nest

Time to switch
Mema Jo said…
There was a switch
and a fly out

Now both back in the nest and one having more breakfast fish

Thanks Steve for the new thread and thanks Jo for the call over.

Jo now I don't want you picking up all the hidden eggs before the children can get them. :) You have a great time!

You get the feather today Jo. :) Congratulations.

Shirley, so glad to hear I have another Tar Heel fan on here. I just saw that WVJerry posted last night that he was one also.
stronghunter said…
yes, there are a few of us around, Candy. :)
stronghunter said…
I see we have a small whale in the nest.
WVJerry said…
Thanks for a new thread. Thanks Jo and congrats on a feather. I will check out videos,etc after work. Sandi - glad you and your students shared the eagles today. Sounds like a great time for you and them. Candy - yes I like UNC...son is named for Dean Smith. Hope they keep moving in NCAA. I was surprised they have done so well. The few games I've watched they struggled. Talk later.
WVJerry said…
Wow. Just checked Cam. Looks like someone had a great day fishing on the river.
WVJerry said…
Shirley - sorry for leaving you out of the Tar Heel conversation.
grannyblt said…
Checking in here before I go to a meeting. Glad Sandi's students were able to see the Eagles. Off to check the cam. Hope everyone has a good day.
Mema Jo said…
Pre-lunch feeding taking place!
Mema Jo said…
Also a switch - Only see the 1 in egg cup for now
stronghunter said…
Hi Jo,

Came over from my games to see baby. Missed the feeding.

Made a short video.
Mema Jo said…
Hi Shirley

You are getting very professional with your short videos! Love them.
Lynne2 said…
In the nano seconds I can see the nest, it reminds of the seen from The Godfather: "It's an old Sicilian message. It means Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes."

This cam thing is SO annoying. Thinking maybe my internet connection? I dunno!
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Just saw for the first time our little baby being fed. I am in love!
Mema Jo said…

BBL

Off to Easter Egg Hunt
JudyE said…
On lunch to find a new one

Thanks Steve for the fresh one
stronghunter said…
Oh, Jo, thank you so much. I just realized I could do this stuff right from my phone through YouTube. One of my sons helped me set up that YouTube account years ago.

Okay, Judie, is Durst a flight risk? I would surely think so. He has bunches of money that could take him anywhere.
stronghunter said…
"Sleeping with the fishes."

Well, this probably does not apply to one sleeping in an eagle nest among fishes one has yanked out of the water.
WVJerry said…
I see a PIP. In another egg.
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
I think that is a pip in the egg beside the baby.
WVJerry said…
I am pretty sure one egg has a hole in it. Hopefully someone else is watching to confirm.
WVJerry said…
Thanks Shar. Glad you're here. Never seen this part of the eagles process.
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
It is a pretty amazing process.
WVJerry said…
I've got to go back to work soon. I'm always glad when a Momster is here to report.
WVJerry said…
Yes Sharon it surely is. Take care.
Judie said…
Good afternoon.

Lovely sunshine on the nest and the mom/dad who is babysitting. Thanks to all who have been able to see another egg with pip.

Shirley, yes. Durst is definitely a flight risk. The amount of publicity reduces the potential for successful escape but with his resources (private jet, money, surgeons, etc.) it is possible.

Back to the scullery. Making a pot of chili for tonight w/cornbread.
Kay said…
Pip, Pip Hooray! So happy to know we have one eaglet and another about to emerge!

Thanks to those concerned about me. I knew Sat. a.m. that something was amiss with me, but managed to work Meals on Wheels with Julie before giving in to it. One of those 24 hour bugs---at least the worst of it---still not running on all cylinders, but I'm okay.

It's taken several sessions to catch up on e-mail and this blog, but little by little....

Thanks to all our fine "reporters"---your imagery is good and I can picture it all!

Prayers for all in need!!!

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Lynne2 said…
It's a great day! Another one for us and it looks like the Codorus nest may have a pip!
stronghunter said…
One would think that the publicity would make it harder for Durst to escape, but this is the man who has masks, as I recall. That makes me think he is at least considering hiding his identity. And, I would hate to think what might happen to anyone who ID's him. Lock him up, please.
stronghunter said…
Hello, Kay!!

Glad you are feeling better. We have been missing you.
stronghunter said…
Nest is sunny. Whale is being eaten. Eagle is sitting pretty.
stronghunter said…
Oh my, eagle calls. Big time.
stronghunter said…
Poof. Baby and eggs alone.
stronghunter said…
Adult has returned. Eggs have been rolled. I suppose something had to be chased away.
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
I just saw the cutest little poop shoot. :)
stronghunter said…
Short video--Baby visible when parent took off briefly. Interesting to see how much stronger this little one looks.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
We have a feeding happening and I can't tell crap about the other 2 eggs.
JudyE said…
Home from work
So happy KAY check in
and eagle was just up couldn't see in cup back to me
Janet said…
good afternoon all! I have had some time (made some time) to watch the EAGLES today! I carried my laptop with me throughout the house!

Its been busy around here. Kids came over yesterday for a grill out and to get some rocks. I know that sounds really weird, but remember we have this large pile of rocks from the pool going in just under 2 years ago. They want to use some of the rocks for making flower bed boarders.

Amelia stayed the night (GD) and I had plans for today; but the best laid plans 'o mice and men... and all that jazz. Livvy woke with a stomach bug. Not a pretty morning.

It really skee-wonkied up my day...but I've gotten most everything done. Just had to stop in the middle of the day and take Amelia home. :/

But we had fun prior to that. She ran errands with me. She gave me a pedicure and I gave her a manicure and we had time to just chat. love that kiddo.

Such a glorious day today. I am going to try to get outside in a bit once the laundry is caught up! Sheesh!

Tom is on spring break. He went for an MRI earlier today. His shoulder is still hurting from last summer when we were tubing down the Pigeon River in Gatlinburg SOOOOO lets see what's going on there.

Back to the work a day world tomorrow.

Will try to check in later!


THREE CHEERS
PIP PIP HURRAY

Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Three whales in the nest now.
JudyE said…
851 on blizzard bear
JudyE said…
I do see two eggs both have spots
Sandi said…
I don't know how many eggs will end up hatching, but Shep sure thinks all 3 will! he has brought in enough fish today to feed an army of eaglets!

It sure does look like there's a pip in another egg!

Belle took off and Shep is doing what he does best with the little ones - wiggling down on top of 'em!

Thanks Kay for the email letting me know you're alive and well - relatively speaking!

Food for people and pets and then a trip to the grocery store. Probably won't get back on tonight! See ya in the early AM.
glo said…
Well this family is surely having a whale of a time today. Speaking of a good provider.
JudyE said…

JudyE said…

JudyE said…

JudyE said…

JudyE said…
noise in attic and alarming
JudyE said…
all is quite now wow was really upset
Mema Jo said…
Well this afternoon 2 daughters and 2 sons (with spouses) and then a
granddaughter and a grandson, all 8 great grandchildren were there !
Very well organized with Pizza and Cupcakes and jelly beans and then the
egg hunt. Candies and trinkets in those plastic eggs were the highlight of the day.
Mema Jo said…
Intruders seem to know that when the eaglets hatch, that is a good time to try to take over the nest.
Too many eagles and not enough nests/mates.
I'm just not sure but it is scary
when the residence eagle(s) are
sending out alarms.
Donald Bodmer said…
Hi everyone. I just tuned in time to see the new chick get fed! Nice looking chick
JudyE said…
HI Donald Yep we will agree good looking chick there looks like Shep I think LOL
JudyE said…
I changed my avatar to our little fuzzy ball in the cup
JudyE said…
and you can see eggbert also and the three whales

LM again
JudyE said…
SHEP in eating one of the whales
glo said…
Egg hunt sounds wonderful MeMa Jo. Will we get to see photos?
JudyE said…

JudyE said…

JudyE said…

JudyE said…
and poof Shep Belle takes over
Judie said…
Early but Sandperson is fussing around in the closet. Wants to be on the way early. Needs to visit the momsters/dadsters but also has to race around to check on eggbert in between. Claims this is a high-stress time of year. Well, no kidding. Duh!

So, wishing restful sleep for all.

JudyE said…
E6 fledged today as Harriet was perched in the tree watching
stronghunter said…
I'll try to get the video on FB Momsters and OC, Jo. Had to go to baseball practice and then fix dinner. Wasn't smart enough to cut up the chicken and do some stuff ahead of time, so I was running around trying to get everything done at the last minute.

Missed the first part of DWTS. Hate that.
Mema Jo said…
Found some TV for the evening
JudyE said…
Well I'm calling it a day

Sandi said…
Goodorming my eagle friends. Busy day today - won't have any time to watch the cam at school so will have to rely on reports from all of you if we get another chick today.

Have agreat day all. Safe travels to Lolly, Jack, and Skippi!
JudyE said…
Good Morning Eagle Buds

34° at the nest this am

no snow in the forecast yeah for our royal family and its gonna get 73° buy Thursday there

See ya at lunch at work

hope we get another bobble head today
stronghunter said…
Good morning,

Getting ready for a busy day here. Will check in when I can.
Good Tuesday morning Sandi JudyE and Shirley. No sun shining on the nest this morning. Hope it comes out soon.

Breakfast is ready and waiting or has already been served. Three fish in the nest just waiting to be eaten.

I think I saw where Jo saw a pip in another egg last night. Yeah! Maybe we'll have our second hatch today!

Had a busy day yesterday afternoon so never did get back on. I did see pics of feedings. :)

Parent just looked down under but couldn't if we have another bobble head. It Upon her getting up and looking again there might be another one under there. Lst time I thought I saw 2 eggs. This time it looked like 2 fuzzys. I am not sure. Will keep watching in hopes for a clear look see.
Parent is up for a second; not good enough. I think I hear peeping.
Eagle calling out to something now.
Both calling out
and looking around.
Something is really bothering them. They are still calling. Poof went one. Parent now off and there are 2 TWO bobble heads!I only see one egg and the live cam is frozen on me.

Got my live cam back on and parent is back on the babies. I am sure there were two heads sticking up. All seems quiet not on the nest. Must have been something near by that was upsetting them.
Parent is still calling out a little now and then, but not like it was.
Parent is calling out again. Geese just flew over and are past, so that can't be it. Maybe she wants some help with feeding. :)
stronghunter said…
Yay! Candy saw two babies!!!!!
Both eagles off the nest now and I sure can see2 bobble heads!

Eagle back, but still looking around. The camera just bounced around and sounds like eagle might have landed as it is frantically calling out again. One is the nest is silent.
stronghunter said…
Yes!! There are 2 babies. Parent was calling, then poofed. Parent back. I am on phone. Must get ready for bowling.
All is quiet again at the nest.
Great to see you Shirley. At least someone to verify that we now have two eaglets!
I have been wondering where everyone was, as I thought Jo said she saw a pip last night.
Camera just shook again, so parent must have poofed. Eagle in nest with her head in nest getting things straight in the egg cup. Back to the cam now, so hard to see.
glo said…
aww was at the neighbors for coffee and 'oh wait for it" not dog treats YET" but in 2 more days. I can hardly wait. Congrats to our royal pair on 2 babies and 4 whales. Lots can happen when you head for coffee.
I wish someone was taking pics. I don't know how to do it. Those two really make some noise. :)

Glo, I have been thinking of you and your new dog. You must be getting to excited as it is getting very close now.
stronghunter said…
BBL

Hold down the fort, Candy and Glo.
Two parents in nest. Guess he wants to make sure all is ok with family! :)
Both are feeding the babies. So sweet
stronghunter said…
Candy,I just told my phone to the computer.
First parent flew off leaving one parent to feed and keep everything warm and toasty. Wiggle, wiggle and back down to sitting on the egg cup.
glo said…
Love love the tag team feeding. Just so fun to watch them care for their young.
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Good morning my eagle budlets. I had a feeling I would see another baby this morning. Loved watching Belle and Shep feed them together.

I LOVE US!
Lynne2 said…
OOOOO YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYAYA!!!!!
Judie said…
Good morning.

Congratulations to Belle and Shep on the hatching of their second eaglet. Pantry looks as if serious foraging has been accomplished.

Shirley, have a good time bowling. May your team win.

Wishing everyone a lovely day.
Mema Jo said…
Good morning on this terrific Tuesday for TWO PEEPS !

Very exciting this morning...
So happy the hatches are close together!

I need to read comments (I received an email about the hatch and about the pip in the 3rd egg). And over I go to FB for pics first..

Parent is off egg. Eaglets were sleeping,but one is a bobbling now, and then two. One egg still to go.

Shirley, I haven't got one of those fancy phones yet. Don't want to waste the money, as I don't know if I could work it or not.

Thanks Glo for posting pictures of the two.

Good morning Judie, Jo, Shirley, and Lynn2. It is about time everyone started to get on here :) to see our two lovelies.
That is it for the feeding. I guess their little tummies are only just so big. :)
Kay said…
Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!

What a beautiful sight it is to see that full pantry and to know there are two little eggberts under that warm brood patch! Now on the final pip watch...

So glad to see a dry nest. I think the inch of snow we got overnight was on a northeastern track. Would like to see Sycamore Palace remain snow free for the rest of this parenting season!

Need to read back n' see what you're all up to.
Kay said…
Aw, tag team feeding! Norfolk Mom and Dad of old used to do that a lot--such a sweet, sweet scene. Shep is becoming quite the role model father!
Mema Jo said…
Whoa! I saw them both
What a blessing
Great pics over on Eagle Cam FB by Debi.

Happy happy dance
Kay said…
Aha, time for another feeding! Two very eager and active chicks! Beautiful!
Mema Jo said…
Glo's pics are fantastic
Love the feeding by both adults

Kay said…
Can't tell if there is a pip on the third egg or if it's just flugg.
Mema Jo said…
I am calling it a pip from looking and then a pic from Debi......
Kay said…
Okay, I'm happy to concur--a pip it is! Eggciting? You betcha!
WVJerry said…
Good morning all. Congrats Candy. Great reporting on nest activities. I'll check Facebook at lunch. On short break now.
Mema Jo said…

This is the

REAL MARCH MADNESS

lol
Mema Jo said…
lol

Another fish - lol
Eagle-Eyed Shar said…
Belle can hardly walk in the nest without stepping on a fish. :)
Judie said…
Two little eaglets enjoying an early lunch. Mom and Dad are doing a great job.
Wow look at all the people on here now and all the FISH. They must be expecting the third one to hatch today! Wouldn't that be exciting.
glo said…
Went out to shop for good grain free dog treats and come home to read the Blog and get caught up and I see "Belle can hardly walk in the nest without stepping on a fish." :) I am still chuckling. T
Judie said…
Hey Y'all. Come on over. New thread.
Thanks Steve.
