Still see egg.
Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!Much to be grateful for today:A nice new thread thanks to STEVE.A call over well handled by the beautifully befeathered JUDIE.An award well earned by our Teacher of the Month, SANDI!!!!A spectacular change of "view" in the future for LORETTA.Quick drop ins both our LYNNEs as they begin a busy day.Good news from LOLLY as relayed by JO.SHIRLEY enjoying an upgrade in computers.JUDY doing a fine nest reporting job, as usual.Not so good news is:No action with our third egg.JANET's family having rough week--prayers....Here in Central Ohio, it's a rainy Spring Day---just the kind needed to bring on those Spring and Summer flowers. Not the kind a dog enjoys, so indoor games are on the agenda.Prayers for all in need!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Good morning! Yes, we are having a great trip! Skippi is at times apprehensive but really doing great. Just like at home, when we leave and is by herself she is not happy. However, better than leaving her at home alone for several days. She traveled well, sitting in my lap, sleeping. She did not try to roam! She has on her harness and when we move her from car to trailer we put the leash on her and I wrap the end securely around my hand. Do not want her being startled and bolting!Today we are going on a very small boat tour. Google......Caddo Outback Backwater Tours! So excited!This trip has been good for us!
Have been keeping us with hatchlings and hoping we have three successful hatches!Love to all!
Oh, and apparently there are no Eagles this end of the lake, we asked. Boo hiss!
Well, Dern! Our trip today was cancelled. It is very cool, misty and windy. Guess a day of leisure is at hand!
Morning, allFeeding in progress...Eagle just departedStill see an egg
Babes still alone in nest....
Can't tell if there are any pips in the egg...nest is brightParent back...think it's Belle
Belle doing some digging in bowl...still couldn't see any pips.
Good Thursday afternoon to everyone who has signed in today! It has been trying to rain here, so I had to get my walk in.I didn't hear any Yaahoooing in last night or today yet, so guess we still only have two bobble heads in the nest.Someone is keeping the refrig stocked with fish for the little ones. :)Glad to see you back Paula. We missed you. What a nice place you have down there.
Thank you Candy! Good to be back. Shed some duties here at work...more time to peek in now!Eagle in the nest keeping the babes warm. Looks sunny at the nest...or at least a little bit...can see some shadows.
Goodness. I have been on the phone with (what is that name we gave to those people who give tech support, etc.?--the ones who are so hard to understand?). Anyway, that is who I have been talking to. Geesh. Just trying to get a security plan for my new computer. So very happy to see our Paula back. We have missed you greatly, Lady.
Windy at the nest too...looks like Shep on dutywet and soggy down here in Crisfield...at least it's warm!
Hi all - quick check in from school to find a new thread. No news on a 3rd hatch - at this point, maybe it would be a good thing?Shirley, don't think I would like a touch screen on my computer. I am so anal - I'm always cleaning fingerprints and smudges off my cell phone screen and clean the monitor on my laptop regularly, even though I never touch it! Pouring the rain here! Will check in from home this evening after my nail appt.Later!
Ah yes, it was Peggy. I talked to Peggy1 and Peggy2. It was exasperating to say the least.
Good afternoon eagle buds been doing some major banking went two three banks so far today DID I tell you I hate banks I don't like to use that word but I do do do do dislike themI have two banks one with savings(just opened for IRA rollover etc) and one with checking ( have had that acct for 40 plus years) and then I had to go to Angie to deposit my cruise money that we are booking for Dec 930 full price no included 50 a day for drinks I refuse to pay that because I don't drink that much so will buy as I drinkWent to BOA where savings is to get cash since they insist on charging me 10 per certified check well when I got there to withdraw 10,000.00 7500.00 for roof they said I had to put in a order for that amt only 5,000.00 without notice well I blew up sort of They didn't tell me that last week when I went to get the money for the ac but did charge me the 10 fee for the check and told me I could just draw out cash everyone does it they said Well I really didn't want to walk out with that much cash but in order to pay 10 fee per check (which would have been 30 for three checks) I would but with them saying needed to order the money well in the end they as a courtesy gave me a 10Th cashier check Now the issue is when I deposited that check in my checking acct they said funds aren't available till tomorrow IT IS A CERTIFIED CHECK for pete sakes which is CASH then I needed the 930 to give Angie for the booking later so that was a big to do at the bank where deposited in my checking acct Well several hours later its straightened out They sure are a PIA and I had lunch with Angie and went to by Barbie invitations just to find out Walmart don't have so had to go to Party City so now just doing laundry and going to gym later I am already pooped LOL
lOOKS LIKE BELLE ON THE NEST NOW
thanks for the nest report PAULAoh by the way how often will you be going to your new place Often?? a nice getta way you have there LOLLY I love the pic of the cabinet with Skippi in it
She is sorted propped up on her wings...kids must be squirming under there!
Judy...only in the winter...will rent out rest of yearGotta head outta here and go get a car repair estimate...hit a deer a cou0ple of weeks ago...damage to front fender only and door
still see egg bummer
Still 2 chicks....egg looks pretty whole on the side facing us
Chicks are perked up and ready to eatoh is that a pip...think the egg might be moving on its own
looks like something under the egg I see spot
tried to get a snip but someone moved in the way I did get to snips of eating and put on FB already naturally They are getting so bigQuite day on the blog today everyone out and about I guess The temp at the nest is nice today huh first I thought I had my weather in the tray but no its the nest 72 ° there wow tomorrow 51 and lo 30 what a big swing in temps
both eagles in and poof one
I think brought food in eating on the rail at 11
I see both bobbleheads and the one egg still hard to tell
I just watched before the adult settled back down and there is something on that egg -- either a leaf is stuck to it or there is a hole in it! The adult didn't roll it before hunkering down.
Still 2 babies?
Haven't heard anything about a third hatching yet, Sharon. Congratulations on your teaching honor, Sandi. Well-deserved!
Finally figured out how to get two windows in IE. Now, if I can remember what I did. Ultimate coolness a 14-year-old guy can manage: Playing rock music on the car radio with the window open as you hold onto the car roof---while your grandma drives the car. ;)
Well I am just checking back in, and I see that everything is still the same. I guess it is time to get the hammer out! :)Glo posted pictures of she and her new dog on Facebook. They both have big wide smiles. I am so happy for her.Paula, you will have a lot of people wanting to visit with you in the winter months! :)Yes Sandi, congratulations on your teacher of the year honor. That is so cool.Wow, that wind is sure blowing!
I'll try to keep my computer reasonable clean, Sandi. I do have a special cleanser for it.
Parent got part-way up. I saw a baby wiggling under there.
The touch screen is very handy when I need to enlarge the screen.
Will have to check FB for that picture of Glo and her new fur child.
SHIRLEY I sometimes write things down as I am doing something new Have to head out talk at ya later if not to late but Angie always kicks me out by ten Funny thing is she will go over and turn the lights off as if last call She will say your can't stay here but you don't have to go home LOL Silly girls she is Lator gators Eagle back up digging in bowl now I want to see but I have to leave will take tablet with me But the last time I tried the IE there didn't work my tablet keep warning me about using other wifi silly thing
Eagle in with stick.
Babies and egg under flugg. One little one trying to find its way out.
Not sure why parent pulled flugg over the babies. I see one very actively trying to get out of there.
Feeding one eaglet. I do not see the egg or the other one.
Hi, all. Haven't been here in a long time, but have been watching the nest. I see only one eaglet moving now and being fed, under that fluff.
Almost time for me to take Hunter to baseball practice. Good idea about taking notes, Judy. I did purchase a notebook for just that purpose. I have it handy for those times when someone wants to give me a phone number or some such thing when I'm sitting in the recliner. More flug movement taking place. I did not see but one baby.
Hello, Lu. Welcome back!
Lu, is this your first post? Nice to see you here.
Hi all - watching 2 chicks getting fed. Both got plenty to eat. Can't even see the egg - covered with grass.Candy, it was just teacher of the month - something we do in-house! Not teacher of the year, but thanks anyway. It IS a nice feeling to be recognized.Time to fix food for people and pets.
Hey, it's precipitating at the nest. Believe it or not, it almost looks like SNOW flakes!!
It's been a coupla years since I visited the blog here. I may have been commenting under another account then, in fact. Anyway, hi, all. Nice to see you're still going.And that's good news, Sandi, seeing the two again.
Hubby and I just returned from therestaurant The Main Cup down in Middletown. To the east we saw a very faint rainbow - BUT following behind are the darkest clouds ever and rain drop are about to fall.Hi Lu - glad you found your way here to the blog. From what area do you come.
Sandi there is a video and it does look like ice/rain earlier at the nest.
Just remembering how a few years ago we worried about Shep brining in food. Now he appears to be an over achiever!Storms passing through here in H town. Probably the same at the nest. Beautiful afternoon!Congrats Sandi on your award.
Hello from the baseball field. Only 9 boys here tonight. I think nine boys are expected at the first game, which is on Saturday. Kathryn got here a little while ago, so I will leave soon to get dinner ready.
Temp is in the 70's here. Hard to believe it could be cold enough to snow at the nest.
Welcome Lu. How long ago where u on here and with the same name?
The temp is 70 Also at the nest until the cold front hit tomorrow
At Angie still watching Jordyn dance
yep DANA u are correct about SHEP being so young but he has proven us wrong
ok movie time GAME PLAN
Home with Patches. She has really done well for me today. Kitties have met her. Gabby could care less. Zoey has come out to visit for a while but spent much of her time in her safe spot in her bedroom. It will take a while but I think we will all do ok. Congrats on your award Sandi
Congratulations Sandi.Welcome Patches. We look forward to hearing about your experiences.You have a super terrific new mom.Jo, watching Miss fisher and then Midsomer.Sandperson is packed and looking for raincoat and umbrella. Plans to stop by the nest to check on the eggberts.Restful sleep for all.
Had to shut down computer - a few features were not property working.All is well now......Masterpiece is SILK - I have seenit last season. Loved it but notgoing to watch again. I even think I have seen Midsomer Murders - Perhaps there is something on demand that I have missed...
Getting a bit sleepy.Guess the sandperson sneaked up on me. Good baseball practice again today in a very nice neighborhood not too far away. A well-maintained field to say the least. SED,everyone. Take care. Welcome, Patches. You and those two cats are very lucky pets.
Shirley, I don't know if it was all that fresh air today - the balmy breeze but I also feel like thesandperson has been here and gone!Going to say Goodnight to all ♥SEDAOYP
Hmmm. No #3 yet. I'm concerned that if there IS anther baby that the time between might pose a problem. Sigh....Will lurk from work tomorrow....
Hello home from kids had a great time as always49° at the nest now hight 51° with rain tomorrow and lo 31° then WOW SAT will be 42° lo 21° wild rollercoaster after being in 70° there today
odd bringing up the weather channel ap for the area it is RED warning so I clicked thinking bad weather but instead there is a Child Abduction Emergency announcement on it
SURE WISH WE HAD NIGHT VISION
funny I have the map up and it doesn't show me on it I wonder if that is because I have had the browser open all day that is the only reason I can think of Shows Greenbelt Maryland but not me
seems quiet now
Getting on to say good night! Sorry the third egg has not hatched. Guess we will never know if it was 1,2, or 3!Heading home in the morning! Have really enjoyed this trip!Night all! SED!
Goodorming my eagle friends - TGIF!!Not sure what I'm hoping for right now - 2 chicks or 3. Leaving it up to Mother Nature and our eagles.Woke with a headache - I didn't drink enough water yesterday so I'm pretty sure I'm just dehydrated.Glo, enjoy that new pup!Have agreat day all.
Good Morning Eagle Buds.We are having rain today. Thursday was sunny and 70°!!!Haven't read that we have a 3rd bobblehead~~might be ok, as it would have to be a defensive Tiny.Sandi, congrats on Teacher Award.And Glo, congrats on getting Patches!Our furbaby families continue to grow.Later~~ ☺ ☺
Good early morning.Rain here and nest looks damp.Will go and get my "do" did this afternoon. Nothing else on the agenda today or this weekend. Agree with Loretta. A third eggbert now would need to be very competitive. I am just very grateful and happy there are two we can watch grow up to fledge.Wishing everyone a wonderful day.
Good Friday morning Loretta and Judie and all other eagle watchers yet to get on. WE have a rainy dreary day here too today and supposedly getting colder for the weekend. Then nicer weather called for next week.Eagle just sitting in the egg cup with fish down in the frig waiting for the little ones to wake up and get breakfast.
All is quiet and peaceful on our eagle nest for now.
Parent off the egg and other parent in for the exchange. It looks like three bobble heads in the nest this morning with a broken egg shell!
We have a third bobble head for sure. Eaglets are being fed, with the newer one seeming to not be ready yet. :)
Well, I think I also see three bobble-heads.
Both parents back in nest now. Some flugg was brought in and parent working on the nw side rails while the other one is feeding. Quick breakfast and then a wiggle, wiggle back down on all three babies. Now just one eagle left. Didn't hear any peeping for this am revelation of the babies. They probably aren't fully awake yet. :)
Yes you do Judie. It is in celebration of your new do you are getting this afternoon!
Parent needs to get that egg shell out of the nest so everyone can be comfortable.
Hi all - the kids and I just watched a feeding and yes we saw that 1/2 egg shell and a 3rd chick bobbing around!!!! So, 5 days between #1 and #3 - hope this new one is a fighter!The kids were commenting this morning about how big the nest is (my room is only about 10 feet wide so I explained that was about the diameter of the nest). I told them they should watch as these 3 babies grow and they will see how little that nest gets when all 5 are in it!
Sandi I am so glad that you all got to see that we have a new eaglet. Yes, the nest will sure look small to them when the eaglets start to grow!
gm everyone. Gosh my home is complete once again as I get things "Patched" up , and our nest is complete. I too hope little one is a scrapper. Plenty of food available to stuff the bigger ones to crop drop and then feed tiny.
WOOO HOOOOOOOONow come on little one, you have to really be fiesty!
Eagle off the egg cup and three heads up waiting for food. Egg is still in there. They aren't making any peeps yet. Parent is over by the fish and now feeding.
Eaglets alone in nest. Must be change time.Just 3 little heads left bobbing.
Good morning Candy. I just hits look at all 3 little ones. We're being fed...now home alone.
Should be "got".
3 chicks all alone in the nest!! WTH???
Good morning!!Yes, I see three little heads bobbing there. Got a video. You can clearly see three little sets of black-rimmed eyes there.
Eggshell is being pushed around.
Good morning WVJerry. Aren't they just so cute?
Eaglets still alone in nest. Hey Shirley, I am about ready to come up to the nest and get that egg shell out myself. Thanks for getting a video of the trio.
11 minutes alone ... I don't like this at all! Call me a worrier!
Hi Candy, We can climb up that tree together and grab that eggshell out. Three little bodies pressed together. I guess they are keeping one another a bit warm. Someone on OC said they could hear an adult in the attic. I hope they are that close right now.
Good morning eagle buds 41° at the nest and all THREE are unattended
I heard something on the cam housing
The Weather Channel says it's 44 degrees there in Shepherdstown. A bit nippy for little baby birds. I think they have worn themselves out.
One eaglet looks to a little more adventurous that the other two.
Maybe that is the oldest, Jerry.
20 minutes alone! Enough already!!!
I think they are huddling together to get warm and get to know one another better.
Hi Shirley - could be. I have only been able to peek in here and there lately. Just been reading and watching your videos along other's and all the nice pics on Facebook by Judy and others.
Adult back now.
Adult in. Babies covered.
Parent finally back on nest and still leaving egg shell in there. :(
Finally! I really should be in a classroom but couldn't leave the computer til I saw a parent covering those babies! Now I can breathe ... and go do my job! Later!
Was going to say that the parents do not need to be fishing. That is for sure.
nice to see one back
Just curious sine I have not seen much of the early process. How will all three be fed? I would think the larger ones would be getting more food or do the parents keep the feedings even.
headin out for breakfast
Good Red Friday Morning to All ♥I had a pic waiting for me on FB from Debi of a full nest !Now the fun begins - feedings for 3Judy the chirping last night around 10:30 could have been the hatch.Not sure what the 'alone' time was for this morning?
I think Sandi figured about 11 minutes, Jo. I thought I heard some kind of calling from a distance. Looks to be Belle on the nest.
Oh--Just saw Sandi posted that they were uncovered for 20 minutes, so it was at least that long.
I doubt there were far away this am Probably up in the attic celebratingNow to get some good photos of all three - probably in a chow line sometime today. I am hoping that #3is full of spunk!
Parents need a rest from all that squirming around when they brood! There was some movement above, so the bobbleheads were not in any danger. Just getting aired out a little. We have seen Belle manage to feed triplets before, and there is certainly an abundance of food available. IIRC, we have only seen one chick die, and that was the year Liberty disappeared and the intruder wouldn't allow any fishing to take place.
JerryHopefully both adults will tend to the feedings. With 3 peeps the strategy done before is to fill up the crop on #1 and then tend to the other 2. #1 has 5 days of age over the #3. We may see some pecking!Shep and Belle will do a good job I'm sure. Happy Happy Happy
Three babies this morning:https://www.youtube.com/dashboard?o=U
Some frantic eagle calls from outside the nest. Eagle in the nest is calm.
Chirps. Human voices.
Clunks. Eagle is calm.
Thanks Shirley ♥
Hi Jo. Thanks. I was just curious how feeding would be handled. One thing is for sure...the fishing has been pretty good.
I am still hearing voices. Anyone else?
Must be someone very near the nest. Belle is listening, but doesn't seem agitated.
Probably the farmer or someone from NCTC.
LOOKS LIKE SHEP JUST BROUGHT ANOTHER FISH
Facebook down for maintenance.
Is that another fish or a rabbit?
OMG too funny...poop shoot onto the fresh fish!
Babies uncovered. Both parents there. Feeding.
Eggshell still there.
I see all three now....egg shell still in the nest
Watching the feeding
Hi, Paula. Isn't it nice to see three little ones doing so well?
I am now hearing a broadcast about raptors--Minnesota Raptor Center, I think. Must be coming through the OC.
It sure is Shirley :)Guess the little one hatched overnight :)
Shep in. Moving flug. Something is squealing.
And there are clunks, but both eagles are in the nest.
Poof Shep. I think some of what I was hearing was coming from YouTube. Seems I had a window open there.
Must get something done. BBL.
Well, I am so thrilled that I was wrong about the 3rd egg. Three babies! Glo, I will join you in worrying about the tiny one getting enough to eat, although the food is not scarce for sure.
These little ones seems to be getting feedings on the hour every hour...
I didn't see #3 on the left get any food this time
Good Morning Eagle Buds!!!A glorious morning it is. with 3 dear chicks now vying for attention and food. Belle, Shep and eagles in other nests have proven to me that tending to three---even an occasional four---is doable. One meal a certain chick seems to get the lions share, but next meal another one gets a craw full. An amazing process as the adults intuitively know what each of their brood needs!
Yep, SHIRLEY, I think you were getting those voices from another source. I could not hear them.
CANDY n' SHIRLEY, don't go for that eggshell--it will be a good calcium source for Belle or Shep before long.Wow, what a nest full of food! The Potomac must be teeming with fish right now.
COME ON OVER TO THE RED FRIDAY AND CELEBRATE THE NEST TRIO THREAD!!!!!STEVE HAS GIVEN US A NEW THREAD!!!!
