Good morning everyone.Thank you Steve for the fresh maybe today is the day thread.Nest was empty when I just looked. No special plans for today. Will likely putter around and read.Carolyn, prayers for Jessica and a quick recovery. ER was a good call.Wishing everyone the best day possible.
Belle and Shep in the nest. Belle doing some arranging and headed to the egg cup.Bye
popping in to say good morning. busy day ahead here. have to get the kid up shortly, allergy doc appoint I had to cancel last week as she had a nasty cold. yesterday was "lazy" day. Olivia went with Michael and Niki to a friend's house where they threw a football and played basketball all day prior to watching the game.she came home one tired kid. she went straight to bed and was sound asleep in minutes.hope everyone has an amazing day. holding each of you close in my heart and thoughts for healing, comfort and love. :) later!
Good morning from school. Lots of teachers out today - Superbowl Fever would be my guess. Too much partying + staying up too late = take the day off.Thanks Steve for the new thread and thanks Judie and Linda for the call over. Good to hear that Belle had breakfast delivered. Maybe it's time to get serious about egg laying?Bye.
Good Monday morning to all. Thanks Steve for the new thread and Judie and Linda for the call over. Just checking in to see how the nest was faring and find the nest MT. I hope everyone had a great weekend, and are ready for our first egg to come. Hearing something about a snow storm headed for the area!!!!! :( I am hoping it spares our nest. Going back to read what was said earlier. I hope all have sunny day.
Good Monday Morning to all ♥ Very happy to see sunshine and blue skies even though our nest is MT. WellEAGLE ALERT - BOTH IN THE NEST
Good Morning Eagle BudsI still see we are egg lessTHANKS FOR THE NEW WAITING FOR EGG THREAD STEVETHANKS FOR THE CALL OVER JUDIE AND LINDA
Belle is still sitting pretty at the 11:00 position - waiting for Shep to return.Thank you Steve for the fresh new thread - one more comment on the old thread and we would have SPLIT to 400! Very happy for this new thread. Have a great work week and perhaps that egg will be here any dayNo plans for the day - good to see all of you here this morning.Jewels I am so thankful that Jess is going to be ok. ER was a great idea. I know how excited you are for the upcoming event of a grandchild. Keep us posted.Sandi I hope you have an enjoyable week at school - there aren't too many more weeks to go!Just sitting here with 2nd cu of coffee watching the squirrels and cardinals and jays.
Good morning! I see an eagle in the very same location that I saw an eagle yesterday morn! Come on, snuggle down in the egg cup and give us an egg!!Friend coming over this afternoon, funeral Wed, luncheon Thurs. Not sure about BB games this week. Oh, and a Valentines party on Saturday night. My agenda for this week. Stuck at 12 lbs weight loss. Going to have to work harder!!We are hoping to head to lakes and a state park east of Dallas next week if this beautiful weather continues. I want to go search for Eagles!Ready to take Miss Skippita adventuring again! It has been such a mild winter. I have plants that are still green that usually freeze back.Also plans to work in the yard this week.
We have snow in the forecast again......... 3-6" Not happy about that !
3 EGGS confirmed at Fulton I ordered a shirt from them to support their camera of the threesome
maybe that is why Belle is waiting knowing there is snow coming
from facebook """Yay! We have a third egg at Sauces! Because the first egg was broken, we have two eggs total that are currently being incubated. Talons crossed for a successful year at this nest!"""
Good Afternoon Eagle Buds!!!Thanks to STEVE for re-Threading us and to our call over team, too!Missed the daily show because I was at the doc's office for my 3 month exam---lab results to follow, but expecting no trouble whatsoever.JEWELS, so glad you took Jessica to ER yesterday! Those fluids should fix her up in a hurry, so that Lil' P-nut will be just fine.Yep, SANDI, Ol' Man Winter isn't thru with us yet---a wintry mix of rain n' sleet today with snow coming in later today and/or overnight. Glad I'm back on home turf with no place to go for a day or two.JO, sounds like you'll be getting more snow than we again. Stay safe.I have a lot of stuff to catch up on since I lost the morning....Prayers for all in need!!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
Both residents are in; Belle is sitting lightly in the egg cup and Shep is having a snack. It doesn't look like snow yet. Maybe an egg for Mardi Gras?
Both in nest. Tug of war over a stick.
Maybe they feel the need to gather more sticks. I think the nest looks pretty nice, but maybe they need a few more crib rails across the back.
Thanks for the new thread, Steve. Hope this is going to be the egg one. I see the call-over was made before my post on the old thread. Guess I was not paying attention. Thanks, Judie and Linda.
Watched most of the game last night and parts of the halftime. Keshia and Kayla came over for dinner, so it was a busy night at our house.
one back in the nest working on rails brought in some orangish flugg
I here a helicopter on the cam
Wahooo! Just put out a new sign for the found car keys when the doorbell rang. It was a young (20's) girl. She was driving her mustang and identified herself as Shannon. Yea! I told her a neighbor had seen her do the back flip. So, I said "too much to drink?" She admitted it! Said she had no idea where she was when she did the flip. She had already bought a new key for $300.00. I knew they are expensive!Ha! Was not going to let her go without being a bit embarrassed by her behavior. I know, I am heartless. NOT! Just so happy to get the keys to the owner.
Glad that the mystery has been solved, Lolly. Just hope Shannon will not be out drinking and driving.
Snow in the forecast for Shepherdstown this evening and tomorrow. We are supposed to get rain tonight and snow tomorrow.
good evening. please forgive my lack of manners! THANK YOU STEVE! we are hoping this is the thread where we will have some egg-citement!busy day! took Olivia to the allergist. good news. she has "graduated" from weekly allergy injections to every other week for two months. then every three weeks for 2 months. then by summer, monthly!!! and I had a discussion with him about sub cutaneous areas that can be used for the injections, so after the chat, he is going to contact our doc office on areas (on the arm) that are acceptable, other than the back of the arm (with 3 injections, ouch)....and other techniques they can employ to help ease the discomfort.from there, the chiropractor. and then lunch. I took Olivia shopping today for her Valentine's....basically an excuse to buy her some new clothes. I told her you have this much to spend. no more. so I am trying to help her to learn to shop within a budget as well. she did very well. she bought 2 pair of jeans (which she needed) a shirt that she liked and a pair of socks she likes. (kid loves socks????) we left the mall and came back across town and ran by wally world. I lost a jacket this weekend, thankfully it wasn't expensive, but it was my favorite kick around jacket. I bought a similar one for $11 which suited me fine. we have had snow showers all afternoon. it is really coming down now, big pretty flakes. not supposed to get more than a dusting though. but this system is supposed to be with us til about Wednesday. I just fed the birds, more peanuts, more sunflower seeds. there is still suet and squirrel log out there.it isn't that cold, mid 30's but it is raw and chilly.LOLLY: I am pleased that the key owner showed up! yeah! that was very thoughtful of you to take the time to post the keys. they are indeed expensive.we have tutoring here in a bit, so i'm going to sit here for a bit longer. dinner is already made, just need to relax a bit before we dash out yet again!later ya'll!
LOLLY congrats on the mystery solved Belle is back and lots of flugg moving
JANET good news on reducing the injections over time
eagle landed on stump
I wonder what had our eagles upset
calm right now
Hi all.Lolly, I'm glad Shannon saw your sign and was able to get her keys back.Janet, good news for Olivia with being able to cut back on her allergy injections. BTW, is she still ice skating? What about hooping? I haven't heard you mention either one in some time so I'm guessing not but thought I'd ask. A former student of mine who is now married with a 6-year old daughter, posted a photo on FB yesterday of her daughter taking her first ice skating lesson and I thought about Olivia and ice skating.Uh oh, something's happening at the nest. Belle is doing a lot of calling out and Shep has landed on the stump.Time to feed pets and then people - bye. All sounds quiet again at the nest.
calling out by BELLE Shep still on stump
heading out calling out again big time
Just heard some commotion and saw Shep(?) take off another eagle...at least I think that is what I saw.
there was another eagle in the area saw fly off
Jerry did you see another eagle - Something was upsetting themAre you watching the cam or are you near the nest
Judy - I saw same thing then.
Jo - I'm home watching Cam now.
Yes Jo - pretty sure I saw another eagle fly off and then Shep followed.
OK Would love to know what he chased! They were really upset
OK another eagle in their area - Makes senseHope Shep comes back soon
Yes Jo - some real drama there for a moment.
Maybe Judy or Sandi were able to get pictures.
I got snip of the other eagle both back in the nest Belle was making some small calls
picture is over on the fb momster page
That's good Judy.
I just love love our camera I got to see the chase
Thanks JudyE - Terri also got videoHappy they are both back safely in the nest
is that Shep getting in the cup
I am also poofing Belle may be staying in the nest Taking tablet Love it can get as I drive LOL
Jo - is this Belle getting ready to lay an egg tonight?
Looks like Belle in egg cup Spreading the flugg under herStanding up positionWhat is the wiggle wiggle for............
Keep your eyes on Belle in the egg cup Report what you see
Eagle Cam posted a video and is saying that the eagle on the stump was an intruder. I don't agree. No way Belle would have been as calm as she was - even though she was calling out - if there was an intruder that close to her in the nest. I think it was Shep on the stump and the intruder was nearby - maybe even in the tree, but not on the stump. And when the intruder took off, Shep took off after him/her.Anyway, what I'm seeing now is looking good - Belle in the nest and settled down like she may be staying.Gotta eat - BRB!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U70yjBIGbi8CHECK IT OUTTerri Eagle Cam Video
I agree Sandi that it was SHEP on the stump --- he took offafter the intruder. Hope no more drama
Just took Bella out. It's a little chilly and cloudy. According to forecast it should be raining/snowing soon. Nothing now. My take on the drama. I was playing Solitaire on computer and heard the calling. When I checked Cam Belle was calling and an eagle was on stump. After a while I saw what I thought was an eagle fly off straight out from Cam view and eagle on stump followed. NBot sure of much else.
I think she possibly laid an egg at 6:11. She was really squirming, and fluffing her feathers. Then she put her head in the egg cup and after that settled down comfortably. Good chance there is an egg. Watch for an egg roll. I have seen her lay eggs before and it sure looked like she was. Friend, Mary, was here and I was showing her Belle when she she started this. We were both helping her push! Lol
Belle up and adjusting and back down.
Hi,Heard lots of beeps from my phone, so I checked things out. Yeah, it looks like she is tending an egg.
Hope the weather is not too bad tonight.
I watched Belle when she got up a few minutes ago and she DID stick her head way down into the egg cup but I couldn't tell if she was positioning an egg or just rearranging grass. Lolly may be right. If she's already laid #1, it was a pretty quick labor.
We are so hoping that there is an egg in our nest - Lots of pics and videos being processed. Belle's actions really suggest she has the egg.Wish we controlled the zoom
Belle pretty motionless now. I saw her up but not sure of anything else...was blocked some plus I can't see much with the Night thing. Don't want to say yes or no.
Good evening, have not read back, too busy checking the videos of the commotion.I agree that it was Shep on the stump. And Belle's reluctance to leave and her stance over the egg cup leads me to believe that we do in fact have an eggbert!
Yeah maybe Out n aboutbeen watching theccam can't do two things on tablet
and CLEARly she was not vocalizing at the eagle on the stump...both birds were watching something in the same direction.
Lolly I believe you are correct! Did I say that?
Lolly thinks 6:11 was egg timeWe should see an egg roll in a little while - not sure if it is 15 or 20 mins between themBelle's wiggle wiggle when she went down just proves to me that we do have an egg.May not be able to see it until tomorrow - but then tonight is snow......GrrrrrrrNCTC has control of the cam's ZoomI bet we can eat our Oatmeal Pies anytime now - I'm hitting the donuts just in case.
I need to get computer up soi can comment and watch. I feel sure there is an egg and Deb said she saw it. I didn't but saw the labor that lasted a couple of minutes, then head in cup and then the wiggle wiggle! So excited!
Shame on her for laying an egg when it's going to snow. LOL! And as deep as that egg cup is these babes will practically be fledglings before we ever see them!
Looks like Lolly deserves the Congrats on the egg since this would be egg roll Number 2.
Belle was definitely up, digging around in the egg cup, moving very gingerly as though she was trying to avoid stepping on something, and then did a big wiggle wiggle back down.
Yes!!!! Egg roll and wiggle wiggle! I think I saw the egg but will not swear by it, just too dark and fuzzy!
Jo was right about the time for the first egg roll!

Well, I'm going to watch some TV since I don't think, with this fuzzy picture quality, that we're going to know anything for 100% certain tonight. But I agree that we have an egg and it seemed to be an easy one for Belle to lay. Congratulations to Belle and Shep and to all the Momsters and Dadsters who love these 2 eagles!Like Lynne said, that egg cup is so deep we may not see an egg in the daylight either. We may have to rely on other signs like Shep coming in tomorrow morning to give Belle a break and then settling down on the egg cup himself.Goodnight all - I'll see everyone in the early AM!
Lol. Oh wow! Allie is eggcited!Congratulations Momsters and Dadsters! Eat that oatmeal cream pie, Jo!
My husband left for a meeting, so I came and got back on. Missed all the excitement that was going on there, but am excited about Lolly maybe seeing our first egg laid. Not too happy that you are supposed to get snow up in Shepherdstown tho. Just missed the egg roll(?) too. I was just finishing up dinner.Congratulations to you, Lolly, for being the one to spot the wiggle, wiggle! If that is Belle in the nest now, she really hunkered down deep in the egg cup it seems. Does anyone have sound or is it just quiet?
oh my Lolly is going to get a Big Head what with all this fuss. Her crown won't fit any more....
Been watching Belle has remained pretty still. Candy - I can hear wind picking up at nest.
Just stepped outside. Not doing anything here and not breezy.
Good evening.Seems I just can't turn my back that something eggciting happens.Based on the past 30 minutes I've watched, I feel certain Belle has an egg. She's too fixed down low over the egg cup and hasn't moved. I missed the earlier activities and am glad Shep was seen to return. Very windy. Will check in again later.I believe congratulations are in order for Belle and Shep.
JANET My heart goes out to you and Shannon. My son received allergy shots, one in each arm, weekly from 4 yrs old until about 4th grade. It was so great to finally have him get off of them. He has had only 2 episodes the rest of his life with his asthma when it was brought on my strenuous exercise during high school sports drills. He will be 40 in March and only has simple stuff during the different seasons and doesn't any evidence to any of his old food allergies. Hopefully the end is in sight for your Shannon soon.The sound is on as I can now hear the wind blowing. Earlier I heard the train whistle blowing.
Yes, Jerry, I have started to hear the wind. Thanks
JudyE Doesn't that kind of sound like that was Shep on the stump? Jerry said that an eagle flew past the nest and then the one on the stump flew off after the other one.Belle up and looking into egg cup. She is very gingerly stepping around the cup and head keeps going down into cup; maybe rolling egg. I didn't see an egg yet, anybody else see it>
JudyE Did you see any egg? Now she is doing a wiggle wiggle and back on the egg cup.
Belle was up a while and now has settled back down again.
There has to be an egg there or she wouldn't be periodically be getting up and putting her head down into the egg cup. Lolly spotted our first Eggburtcoming into this world. :)
Well, I am calling it a night. Maybe this wind will keep the snowy weather away. If not, I'll see a snowy nest in the morning. Good night and take care all.
Good night Jerry. Have a peaceful sleep.
I also think Shep was on the stump she was calm most of the time he was on the stump the video seems to have a buffer issue can't see when he flew off the stump I saw it the case twice loving the rr feature of the camera and its hard to see both eagles on Terri video due to buffering
https://youtu.be/OJxYNKd59rsWatch very carefully for a glimpse of a pure white eagle egg being rolled.YES YES
Oh yes!! Saw it that time! Wahooo!Ok, Jo, message Steve! 6:11!!
In the above comment from me is the video where you can spot the egg as it isbeing rolled by Belle.............
Deb has messaged Steve the video. We were all over on FB PM watching and discussing these events (Jo Deb Debi Terri Christine - mainly Eagle cam gals) You were the one whogot the time recorded. Thanks.
Going to lurk for the rest of the night.Very happy that egg is here - praying for safety through the snow.....Jill Long's b-day was today - she was in our original Momsters' group. I told hershe was honored by Belle.Goodnight to all on this Blessed day. SED and AOYP**Egg rolls are about every 15-20 mins.
