Yes, we do!

Congrats to Belle & Shep!!

Lori said...

WoooooHooooo! Thanks for the new thread, Steve and the announcement JIM!

paula eagleholic said...

Jim, I'll share the feather with ya!

Lori said...

So is there one or two eaglets, PAULA???

paula eagleholic said...

Hoping to check my nest here as well...maybe inbetween the raindrops this weekend.

paula eagleholic said...

one eaglet, Lori

Lolly said...

One has hatched, Lori.

Lori said...

Thanks. When are you expecting #2, and #3? Still thinking the same as yesterday?

stronghunter said...

Lori, we think that there may be a pip in the second egg.

stronghunter said...

Good that you can join us today, Lori.

paula eagleholic said...

Not sure if this is egg 1 or 2 that hatched today...time will tell.

Today is 39 days for egg 1, 36 days for egg 2 and 32 days for egg 3. Could very well be egg 1.

paula eagleholic said...

Shep has those eggs and chicklet tucked in tight.

Hoda said...

Congratulations Belle and Shep.
Yay on Eaglet

I am getting dizzy with the stream of new threads!!!
When it rains it pours I guess.

Raining here.
Back at the lake house.

Thank you for the reports. Fantastic and exciting

Hoda said...

I want us to hold off on names till we know how many eggs will actually hatch.
More important than Prez or Lib is to have Captain...

paula eagleholic said...

Not much of a look see that time...should see more on the switch coming up before dark at least.

stronghunter said...

Was enjoying a treeful of songbirds when the grackles showed up.

I have brought in my squirrel-proof feeders so I can clean them. The website says they can be made grackle-proof, too, by removing the perches. I think I'm going to have to try that.

Eagle-Eyed Shar said...

Woot!!!!

paula eagleholic said...

Can someone remind me why we would name one of the eaglets Lib?

Mema Jo said...

It has been a very special day of hatching..... I hope it continues right along.

Great news that the new Phoebe has hatched her first egg too.


NCSuzan said...

Congratulations, everybody! And of course to Belle and Shep!

Mema Jo said...

Paula - I knew about Prez and Captain

I don't know or have forgotten why
Lib... Perhaps someone will remember

The middle hatched egg needs a name

Prez - laid on Presidents day
Captain - laid on Gene's date of passing.

Mema Jo said...

OF course names don't mean anything until we have 3 healthy bobble heads
up and eating and growing.

Mema Jo said...

Sandi got the message and so did
Carolyn.

Waiting to hear from Margy.... ♥

stronghunter said...

I had forgotten the middle one's proposed name, too. Not sure who suggested Lib. I would think it is to honor Liberty.

Mema Jo said...

LOL Sandi said her car ride is very quiet

Bandit is home with Kevin ♥

stronghunter said...

I have a platform feeder out for now, and moved it closer to the house. Grackles seem more skittish about coming so close. Little birds are back!

Sandi said...

On the road to balto. great news about our 1st eaglet. hope this comment publishes from my phone. will try 2 get the live feed. later!

Sandi said...

<3

stronghunter said...

Got it. Sandi!

Judie said...

Thank you Steve for providing a "hatclet" gift. Bet this one is going to fill up fast.

Congratulations to our Belle and Shep.

Babe is being covered by an eagle blanket.

Jim, thank you. Been watching the new Phoebe. Will check in a few minutes.

I forget who suggested Lib. I assumed it was to honor Liberty.

Okay, son off to the scullery.

Paula, how's Larry feeling today?

Hope Loweeda knows about the hatch.

stronghunter said...

Eggs and baby were exposed for a moment. I got a screen grab. I see a pip in Egg #2.

On my blog.

Hoda said...

I see that too SHIRLEY.
Thank you for the capture.

PAULA I am tempted to say KAY and LORI on the Lib name choice. Several others agreed.

I am supposed to drink half of my weight in liquids when I start the cleanse for the 2nd of April. I had no idea how much I weighed as I do not bother with such things...so off to the doctor I went to get weighed. She let me know I lost 45 pounds from when she first started to see me four years ago!!! Well she apparently weighed me when she did a physical then.
Still have to drink an awful lot of liquids in April. I expect I will need to have a portable toilet!!!LOL!!!


stronghunter said...

I hope you do not have to do all of that liquid drinking in a short period of time, Hoda. I think that would be dangerous.

Kay said...

Aha, I return from napping and a nice long walk with the pooch to find a nice new thread--thanks STEVE ! And thanks to JIM for the call over !

And, glory be ! Thanks to Belle and Shep for a successful hatch ! Love the pics PAULA !

JO, I suggested using Prez, Lib and Capt. if we have 3 viable eggs. As JO points out the 1st and 3rd eggs appeared on important dates. That left the "middle child" in need of a name. My thought was that we could honor Liberty for he figured heavily in the history of this nest and in the month of February as well. I feel that Prez, Lib and Capt. are gender neutral in this day and age. The day I suggested that it received unanimous approval here and so for some of us those names stuck.

Kay said...

I, too feel we can't really name them til' we know how many eaglets we have to name. And, my feeling is that ranking the names in order of importance would be Capt., Prez, and Lib as HODA also suggested.

Mema Jo said...

Hoda - I just recently saw a commercial for a Patch for your stomach area that guarantees more bladder control. Maybe I should send
you a couple packs of them! lol

You will do just fine !
So how much do you weigh - ??
You are so active and agile that your weight doesn't seem to be a problem with any of your activities. Here's to the cleansing in April ♥

Mema Jo said...

Paula sent message out on the Momsters email so I am hoping that Loretta sees it. ♥

Mema Jo said...

Health wise - aren't we told to drink 9-9 glasses of water daily. So if I weigh 150 lbs and half of that is 75 (oz) which would be 9 - 8oz glasses plus a little sip... Right..

I would have Floating eyeballs!

Mema Jo said...

*** that is 8 to 9 glasses a day

Kay said...

Oh my goodness HODA, have you figured out how many glasses of liquid constitute half your weight ? You are literally going to float ! Lay in a supply of Depends and be sure you know where every clean public restroom is along your usual path !

LORI, thanks for the prayers for Shirley her son, Gary. History is, a seemingly healthy and athletic man of 51 began to have a series of heart attacks. Now 54, the doctors at Baylor Grapevine said his heart is 3/4 dead---the reason he no longer feels the pain, just collapses. They said he needs a heart transplant, but had him transferred to Baylor Dallas after the last attack a week or so ago. There he is undergoing another complete battery of tests. A couple of days ago they detected a blood clot that turned out to be rather large. They went in, removed all they could get of it and put under sedation in Critical Care for "24 to 36 hours". Early this a.m. they went back in due to internal bleeding. Another reminder re:Shirley aka Job. Her eldest of three, Diana, died in Dec. of 2012, due to lung cancer. Shirley feels like she's falling apart and is in great despair. She believes in prayer and thanks all of you for remembering her and Gary.

Hoda said...

Through a 24 hour Period SHIRLEY. Soup, Juice, Green drinks Smoothies...

Ten 8 ounce glasses JO.
No my weight is not a problem and OI feel rather healthy. She tells me muscle weighs more than fat, yet I also recognize fat on me. I will do alright...

LOL No to the patches...I am supposed to be flushing my kidneys so getting rid of the water is a good thing...flush liver, kidneys adrenals and digestive track for the month of April...Two weeks intensive and the rest of the month maintain. Repeat in October...

Kay said...

Thanks for doing the math, JO ! I guess that's how the 8 glasses a day adage came about. "They" now say that all liquids taken in daily--coffee, tea, etc.--soups and that contained in the fruits and veggies we eat are to be taken into account when calculating 8 glasses per day. I won't take in caffeine after noon and curb my liquids beginning at about 5pm. I'm sure I don't get enough liquid twixt 7 a.m and 5 p.m.. Yep, I'd be up all night and like JO, with eyeballs floating !!!

Mema Jo said...

Hoda - you know me and that I was just joking you about those patches.
Can't imagine them being of any
value ♥

Mema Jo said...

Hope some more fish come in to the nest. I'll love seeing that first feeding... Please don't let that little one hide behind mom or dad

Kay said...

I'm going to fix a salad for dinner--quite a bit of liquid in those ingredients. Then to my PBS Friday night line up---coming back here to peek in on Belle, Shep and hatchling #1. BBL

Mema Jo said...

Calling for some morning rain Sat
at the nest. Then again on Sunday
there's a chance.

Kay said...

As I recall they feed the newbies liquid from their own systems for the first few hours. We may not see a real feeding of fish til' tomorrow.

Mema Jo said...

Our eagle is digging the way to China. So very very deep. Going to be hard to see those 2 eggs and the
little bobblehead.

I may take a break.....

BBL

Mema Jo said...

FLY IN

BIG FISH

Fly out

Mema Jo said...

Now I AM SEEING IT ON THE lIVE FEED

stronghunter said...

We have usually seen fish or some kind of meat given pretty early, Kay.

Mema Jo said...

It is just a minute delay from the Still cam until the Live Feed
picks it up........

That is why I keep both can running.

stronghunter said...

Yeah. I just saw it, too, Jo. I don't have the other feed open. Wow, that was quite a difference.

grannyblt said...

Exciting to see two eagle hatches this afternoon. I see a pip? In a second egg in our nest as some of you all do. The Pittsburgh nest hatch made the 6 o'clock news. I see that almost 11,000 people are watching that cam.

magpie said...

Good Happy Hatchling Evening, Eagle Pals


Jewels Delivered the Newborn News on the Bobblehead when she arrived at work around 4:45.

I had only seen the very large crack in the egg earlier this afternoon

Congratulations, Belle and Shep !!
Bravo and Clap Clap Clap !!

magpie said...

And by the way there is a Male and a Female Osprey at Blackwater Osprey nest

Spring is Springing !!

magpie said...

JO:
Your new avatar is Super !!

magpie said...

And Congratulations to NCTC ALL, for having another Baby Eaglet Season at the Campus...
and Thanks for Bringing this to us year after year...

magpie said...

Baby and Parents in View !!!

magpie said...

And another fish,
You go, Shep !!!

Mema Jo said...

Go to the live feed

Mema Jo said...

Another fish came in
I think there is a switch coming up
Old fish dug up out of the flugg...

Little Eaglet bobblehead is so
visible

Mema Jo said...

Shep flew out

Belle walking over to eaglet

Lolly said...

Awe....just got home in time to see the whole family! Sweet!

Angie Taylor said...

At Angie put pic on fb using her acct

Mema Jo said...

Hello and welcome Margy

You are getting to see some action on our cam ♥

Angie Taylor said...

This is JUDYE as if you didn't know

stronghunter said...

Hello, Judy!

magpie said...

Thanks, Jo
I got a pic of the still cam, but really don't know if it got into the album or not...
have not navigated there for quite some time :(
maybe I'll figure it out

Mema Jo said...

Hey there Judy aka Angie...
I could tell right away it was you due to the avatar...

We got our eaglet, Judy...Check out FB

Lynne2 said...

I'm BAAAAAACK!

Lynne2 said...

I'm sharing this link, it is SO cool!

ISS Cam

Judie said...

Going to watch some First 48.

Looks as if all is quiet at the nest. Maybe tomorrow will bring a playmate for #1.

Night light is on. Sandperson is leaving early. Plans to stop at the nest to check on the babe.

Restful sleep for all.

Lynne2 said...

this ISS cam is awesome! I'm traveling the world! I have taken Jufie with me and I let her out over Russia...set her loose on Putan!

Lynne2 said...

in a no signal zone now....
The map beside the live feed is so interesting and is refreshing my geographical knowledge.

geez, looks like Eggbert #2 will hatch in the rain tomorrow :(

Lori said...

Working on a bulletin board for school for Alcohol Awareness Month. Just finished making up a chart of what your virgin (non-slcoholic) drink name would be, you know, using the first letters of your first and last name. Now to put the names on all the plastic wine glasses. For some reason Nursing School billboards must include the names of every student. I have no idea why.

I didn't know about the eaglet name of Lib, but think it's a great idea. A wonderful tribute, along with Captain. We know these two can handle two eaglets, think they're ready for three?

HODA, I'm fascinated with your flush! Heavens - you lost 45 pounds . . you've always looked so thin to me. I admire your dedication to health.

JUDYE, why are you using Angie's sign in? Hope your computer is okay.

I'm yawning. Guess it's time to hit the hay. Hope the Sandman comes this way first.



Good night everyone.

Lynne2 said...

We had 2 clients have pets get bitten by a raccoon this week. It tested positive for rabies. One of the people feeds a bunch of ferals. Animal control now has to come and trap and euthanize them. Very sad.

paula eagleholic said...

evening all

had a hard time getting on the blog this evening it was my connection

no rain here yet tonight... we are expecting two inches of rain too

have to go back and get caught up

paula eagleholic said...

glad to hear our bubble head was cited bubbling... hahaha had to leave that in there love this talk to text

paula eagleholic said...

larry is doing good today fed him ribs and pasta tonight :-)

he starts his radiation on Tuesday

paula eagleholic said...

oh did I mention I quit smoking :-)

now I suck on fake cigarettes :-)

Mema Jo said...

Paula, I AM PROUD OF YOU ♥
I Pray that you soon will even give up the fake ones.

magpie said...

Nice going, Paula....enjoy
your new good health benefits.

Always good to SEE you and read your posts, always has been

Lynn2: I'll check out that ISS Cam when I have more Oooooomph, but
it's bedtime for me

Good Night, Precious Pals, including our new sweet little baby eagle

Prayers for Wellness, All Around,
Every Day

God Bless Us,
Every One xoxo

Hoda said...

PAULA Way to go!!! So very pleased for you and very very very proud of you...
Glad LARRY is eating well and prayers continue for radiation that starts Tuesday.

Pouring rain here today bouncing off the lake. Very pretty.

stronghunter said...

Congratulations on quitting, Paula. I will be interested in how the fake cigarettes work for you. One of my bowling teammates uses them.

Will started smoking after 9-11. I know he has tried to stop. He does not smoke in my house or in my presence, thank goodness.

stronghunter said...

Hope that radiation goes will for Larry, Paula. I went to talk to the radiation people, but ended up not needing that, so I do not know much about it.

paula eagleholic said...

I quit a week after Larry quit...but I was cheating . It took me awhile to realize I couldn't have even a couple a day. It like being an alcoholic ..you can't have any...if you truly want to quit...you have to give it up entirely .

Hoda said...

So very true PAULA!!!
I smoked when I lived up North because it was the thing to do to socialize! Stupidest thing I ever did I might add!!!Talk about peer pressure!
Anyway I bet that I could quit and so long as it was about someone else and wanting to prove them wrong it was not about me. I smoked a cigarette lost the bet and quit cold turkey! That was in 1975 I believe...Have not touched it since!!!

Kay said...

PAULA, so pleased to hear about the smoking cessation ! I know it's difficult, but the health benefits will trump the habit !

I kept coming back for a peek at the nest. The fish still lie where they were, so I guess Belle's self storage was sufficient for her needs. She'll be able to snack as she feeds the little bobblehead in the morning. Anyone up at sunrise will probably get in on that first feeding ! The sound of wind is pretty strong there right now, but Belle looks comfy.

Looking forward to lots of watching time tomorrow. Will we have two little eaglets by this time tomorrow night ? Since another pip has been seen I wouldn't be surprised. This whole process never fails to amaze and bring joy, no matter how many years one has been viewing nests !

I think JUDIE dispatched the Sandman a while back and he's heerrree....

Love and prayers for all in need and for our dear Eagle family as well !

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Mema Jo said...

E4 so ready to fledge

Mema Jo said...

It has been such an Eggciting day that I am plumb worn our out......

Prayers for all that need healing - for us and for all our loved ones and friends.

Love you all - goodnight ♥

JudyE said...

just realized I didn't check the box when I got home no wonder there is no email in my box to read Talk at ya tomorrow

Lolly said...

Paula...way to go!!! You will will enjoy the benefits of not smoking. Proud of you! Prayers for success!

Lynne, I laughed out loud. Kicking Jufie out over Russia. Too funny!

Lolly said...

Time to think of getting ready for the pillow. Sounds pretty good to me!!

Night all! SED!!

stronghunter said...

Having cat issues again. George comes and sits across my arm. He likes petting, but what he really wants is some more snacks. He would eat until he barfs if I let him.

stronghunter said...

Going to join the others and get under the covers. George just changed the channel by sitting on the remote. If it isn't one thing, it's another.

stronghunter said...

SED everyone!

Ms Bookworm said...

Hi, Gang,
I have been MIA again for a while because of a crazy schedule and some more work from the doctor who sends me reports to transcribe, but thought I'd better get on here and let you know that Ken and Emma and I are all OK. We have had a couple of earthquakes tonight--the first a little over an hour ago. It was a 3-something. I felt it, and Ken didn't. Then about 20 minutes ago, we had another one. That one was a "moderate" quake of 5.3.
We felt that one, for sure. It went on for quite a while, and Emma was scared half to death!
We don't have any damage that we can see, and we are OK. Keep having tiny little after-quakes.
My Sis-in-law was in the car with Bro-in-law, and she thought she had a flat tire at first, then thought there was something wrong with the road. You know it's a moderate quake as opposed to a light one when you can feel it in the car while driving! It was centered somewhere near La Habra, CA, which is about 12 miles from this roost in Anaheim. Don't worry about us--the national news will probably sensationalize the whole thing, and I don't want anyone to be concerned for us. I'll keep you guys posted as the weekend goes on. I hear we have a bobblehead!!! Yippee!!! (Maybe another one soon, too?!) Fantastic! I ♥ us!!!

Janet said...

good late evening, almost early morning to all. just sat down. wheweeee! what a day!

it was supposed to rain, but never did. we lazed about for a bit. took scout and seven for their vaccines today...then home.

we spent a good bit of time moving branches out of the back yard and cutting up the remainder of the tree. we stacked a bunch of the wood to dry for use in the fire pit next year.

the grandkids came over. they are currently asleep. Chelsea and chris will be here in a bit to get them.

watched the eagles for a long time today. love this new computer. I can watch it without problem now! woo hoo!

hope everyone has SED tonight! exciting weekend! GN

Hoda said...

Thank you for checking in ANDY. Yes news reported it in Canada and I wondered. So Thank you. Glad you are safe.

Blessed Be.

Goodnight
God Bless

stronghunter said...

Good morning,

Good to know that you are okay, Andy, with no earthquake damage. I had not heard the news yet. I would have been asleep.

The earthquake here that damaged the Washington Monument was a 5-something, 5.6-5.8 or so. We certainly felt that one.

Looking for another hatch today. Do stay in touch.

We do indeed have an eaglet.

stronghunter said...

Well, that post came out in the wrong order--Meant to mention that we have an eaglet before mentioning the expected hatch.

stronghunter said...

Seeing news about the California earthquake now. Caused a car to flip.

stronghunter said...

Checked the earthquake map--another aftershock this morning.

T-Bird said...

Good morning my eagle peeps. What an exciting day yesterday.

Sandi said...

Goodorming Shirley, Thelma, and all my eagle friends!

Thelma, great to see you on the blog!

Paula, you go girl!! Congrats on stopping smoking!!!

Meeting with the realtor this morning at 9am so she can take a look at the place. Since Mom only lived here for 2 years, I know we won’t break even on the sale (factoring in closing costs to buy and now to sell) but I hope the price she suggests will at least equal what Mom paid for the place plus the 2 major improvements she has made.

Have a great day all - rain in the forecast here in Elkridge for today AND tomorrow.

JudyE said...



Good Morning Eagle buds




LORI I was at Angie when I posted and when I clicked on post it came up with Angie acct and I said either give me your password or I will log you out So she told me her # I also used her fb to post pic of Shep fan page
PAULA fantastic you stopped smoking

I smoked for many years and stopped several years ago I think I told you the story Don't miss them at all

JudyE said...

ANDY so happy the earthquakes weren't as bad as the news make out

JudyE said...

SANDI I hope you all can sell quickly and get a good price for it

JudyE said...

pick a little flugg here and pick a little there going on at the nest when I first came on was adjusting in the cup so there must have been a egg roll right when I got up and missed it

T-Bird said...

I have been out of the electronic world for a while. It's good to be back with my peeps.

T-Bird said...

Congrats Paula. Good to see you too Sandi. Good luck with the realtor.

Kay said...

Good Morning Eagle Buds !!!

Happy day, our 1st eaglet looks hale n' hearty ! No one mentions having seen it, but it must have helped consume that portion of the long fish that has been devoured.

grannyblt said...

Good morning all. Didn't catch a glimpse of our hatchling yet today. Saw baby Pittsburgh a while ago.
I smoked as a teen until my mid 20's then quit for 10 years and started again for another 10 years or so. I had to quit cold turkey and I think I could start again if it didn't kill you, very dirty habit and cost so much.

grannyblt said...

Nice to see you here Thelma.

Just checked the weather forecast--we are supposed to get s*** tonight!Then in the 60's next week.

Kay said...

Time to shelter the little one. Glad I got a peek before Bell settled in again. Couldn't see the pip on the 2nd egg this time.

Hi Thelma ! So very happy to see you this morning ! Hope Buddy is responding to the TLC !

SANDI, good luck with the Realtor, it helps that's she's a friend, I'm sure.

ANDY, appreciate your earthquake report. My granddaughter, Lauren, lives within view of downtown L.A. and works at the L.A. County Museum of Art. I always worry about her when I hear of a quake--will talk to her Dad, my son, later today.

Kay said...

We're expecting rain and snow showers today. Hope they won't move southeast toward the nest ! 39° now and it won't get much warmer than that.

Seth won't be with me this weekend. He is home, but they are hosting an out of town guest and he, wants to be in on all that happens there. I don't mind a bit, of course.

Kay said...

Quite a few ex-smokers here and I'm proud of y'all ! Very supportive of any current smokers who wish to quit. I don't think I've ever met a smoker who didn't rue the day they began to smoke and who didn't want to kick the habit.

Lori said...

Good morning everyone!

PAULA, congrats on the quitting smoking. I'm next! I know it's not easy. Prayers for strength.

SANDI, good luck with the Realtor today. I'm sure it's difficult for you having to go back to your Mom's house. ♥

ANDY, glad you're okay. I don't miss those Southern Calif. earthquake at all!

I'll be waiting for the announcement that we have another eaglet!


Mema Jo said...

Good morning to all ♥

Smells and looks like rain is coming to my valley. I am headed over to the cams to see what is going on at the nest.

Hello Thelma my friend ♥

Mema Jo said...


*************************************
Shirley - in my junk mail I have
an email from you at ShirleyPhillips@yahoo.com
but I am not going to open it as it only contains a link ........
I see the names of about 30 people that are probably your addresses.
Has anyone else mentioned this - like Kay or JudyE

Mema Jo said...

I guess I better bring up the Birthday list over on Momsters site so I don't miss any of the April
special peeps' days.

Mema Jo said...

Someone at the Eagle Cam said it looked like 2 heads bobbling in our nest. We need to check this out pronto.
I am going to FB and see if there are any comments or pics.... ♥
Only one from all reports

1st feeding video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcMBgjc606U

Kay said...

JO, I haven't received that mailing from SHIRLEY's out box today, but both HODA and I have in the past. SHIRLEY can speak for herself, but she knows about bogus use of that e-mail address and she can't get rid of the pesky demon.

Kay said...

JO, I was watching the little one from about 8 to 8:20, very active and cute, but all alone with two egg buddies. I tried, but could not see a pip on either of them--many were sure there was one yesterday so I'm assuming that egg was just turned wrong this morning.

Kay said...

That video shows the aftermath of the first feeding. I saw that action as Belle settled back down on the cup, the eaglet and two eggs. The feeding had to have occurred before 8 a.m., when I tuned in. Doesn't the eagle look terrific ?

Kay said...

The eagle does, as always ! I meant to say "doesn't the eaglet look terrific" !

paula eagleholic said...

I can only see one egg at this point...the other one is tucked this side of the egg cup...little one wiggling around

paula eagleholic said...

Parent in the NHZ

paula eagleholic said...

Um, there might be two chicks...hard to tell

paula eagleholic said...

Yes...I think there is two...

paula eagleholic said...

Lets see what happens during this feeding

paula eagleholic said...

YES we have a second hatch...saw the second little head bob up!

Kay said...

Great ! I had to leave for a few and missed it, but now I know what all that parental fidgeting was about ! How thrilling ! Now we must hold out hope for egg #3 within the next two or three days, eh ?

Mema Jo said...

Yes, movement under the egg shell
Another fuzzy little head

TWINS or SIBLINGS lol

TY for seeing that Paula

WHOO HOO ♥

paula eagleholic said...

I put a pic on FB, I'll try it on the EM blog as well.

Mema Jo said...

Paula, I'll look for your Momster
announcement.

Kay, you're right about #3

paula eagleholic said...

Pic on my EM blog

paula eagleholic said...

Oh, and I can hear sound today...haven't been able to hear it at work the last couple of days.

Kay said...

Thanks PAULA ! The eyes have it !

paula eagleholic said...

Eagle digging to China...

paula eagleholic said...

LOL Kay

Shep is doing a good job this morning! Nice to see these 2 hatch so close together!

Kay said...

Yes, sounds windy. Can hear an occasional bird tweeting in the distance.

paula eagleholic said...

Going to move to the still cam for awhile...

paula eagleholic said...

Jo, sent out the email on yahoo and put it on the fan page.

Mema Jo said...

I always share with the Eagle Peeps
FB group and put it on our Eaglet Momster page. Your pic was marked Public and everyone can see it.
Debi on the Eagle Cam FB page got a
good pic also.

Lolly said...

Good morning! Sitting here reading the paper and drinking my coffee. Have the cam up, full screen. Saw Belle get up for a feeding and was thrilled to see two bobble heads!!! Awesome! Now, we just need the third!!!

Today is sunny but not supposed to get as warm as yesterday. Lots of storms yesterday but missed us. We had a sprinkling.

Andy, good to see you! Sorry about the shake rattle and roll. Never felt a one while out there. They were all south of us.

Lolly said...

Love seeing the fish in the nest. Never will forget one time when Lib, and I do mean Lib, had the nest plastered with a smorgasbord of meals, including a rabbit.

Costume Lady said...

OMG, I see we have 2 babes now. I had lost track of their hatching date.
Family Friday was fun...with all the kids and grandkids around, it just fills my heart. They are leaving tomorrow for OBX tomorrow, oh how I will miss them!
We have a lot going on at church next week, so that will keep me busy and I'm always happy around my church family.
Karla and I took GG to get her do done then went to the newly opened Golden Corral. First she has been to a restaurant in a long while. She enjoyed the food and wants to go again :)
Back to taxes...YUCK!

Hi,

Two babies! Now to watch for the third.

Thanks for the links, Jo and Paula.

stronghunter said...

Hi Wanda,

I still have to do my taxes, too.

Kay said...

Eager little eaters ! They catch on fast !

Kay said...

WANDA, so happy with your Family Nite and GG reports ! It's grand to know you have a comforting Church Family, too !

Mema Jo said...

Hi Wanda - happy report about your Friday shindigs! One of these days you must pack up and head for the OBX with the family. Good luck with your taxes - we made out ok - didn't owe ♥

Mema Jo said...

My lights have been flickering - I know the rain is coming BUT if I become MIA please don't worry.
I will return.... ♥

Judie said...

Good morning everyone.

Now I know where Jufie went last night. Sandperson was totally relaxed. Thank you Lynne2. How is Jufie going to get back from Russia after "offing" Putin?

Congratulations Paula. Very happy Larry has an appetite.

Sorry about the earthquake, Andy. It was discussed on Phoebe's blog. She has two little hummers this morning.

Isla should return to Loch of Lowes - first expected arrival date tomorrow.

Wanda, so happy Family Friday was so nice. Glad Miss GG had a night out and enjoyed her dinner.

Lori, good luck on the billboard. Get some rest this weekend.

Headed back to watch the nest. Also need to finish a final library book due by Monday. Good day - raining.

stronghunter said...

Need to get some things accomplished today.

NatureNut said...

Hello, hello, Eaglebuds!
Congrats on our hatch. I just missed it. Went out to dinner w/daughter last night and then SIL arrived at airport.
Gotta do some nest watching! ☺

Lolly said...

You better, Loweeeeeeeeeda! We have two bobbleheads to watch!

Getting ready to take the trailer to its home!

T-Bird said...

Buddy is responding Kay. He got better so quick after we made those changes and added the chicken and rice. He will sure miss that. : ) I don't know what I would have done if he would of had the C word. Of course we keep praying for Ellie Mae, bless her heart. Positive thoughts.

Sandi said...

Hi all - great news about eaglet #2 - thx for all the pics on FB and sent to my email.

Well, a contract has been signed, a lock box is on the door, and the condo is officially on the market. We will be heading to Madeline’s skating show this afternoon and out to dinner with Lisa and family after that.

Tomorrow, we will make a run to Goodwill to drop off an upholstered living room chair and a computer chair that the realtor suggested we get rid of.

I have made a pile of valuable things that I don’t want left here now that strangers will be coming through the condo. Either Lisa will take them to her house or I’ll take them home tomorrow.

Just bein’ a sand shark - keepin’ busy.

Later.

T-Bird said...

I'll never forget that smorgasbord either Lolly.

Mema Jo said...

CATCH A FEEDING ON OUR LIVE CAM

JudyE said...

I SEE FEEDING ON LUNCH

JudyE said...

SO HAPPY THAT WE CAN SEE THEM

Kay said...

THELMA, happy with the Buddy progress report ! I include Petsters in my daily prayers for they are important family members. I love looking at Buddy via your avatar.

SANDI, great progress report from you. You are wise to work on all the details so quickly. Here's hoping the condo sells very quickly.

LORETTA, enjoy your precious company ! The bobbleheads will be there for a while so there's plenty of time for nest watching.

Granddaughter Lauren wrote to say she was in a movie theater and never felt a thing last night. The St. Pat's Day quake shook her out of bed. She says the hope is these small quakes are relieving pressure and delaying "the big one". She also says "they are exciting"---that age 23 for ya !



JudyE said...

I wonder if we will have a hatch tomorrow Belle did good timing the two so far

JudyE said...

wiggle wiggle down she is on them

Kay said...

Ah, feeding time just ending and Belle settling down over the cup again. Even one day makes a difference, the larger/older chick was a more eager eater then the younger. Maybe they'll help keep that last egg warm and jostled so that we get a third eaglet in a couple of days.

JudyE said...

we are in sever weather warning It is pouring big time comes in waves and it was in the forecast for today so was expected show customers and some peeps don't pay attention nothing but complaining about the rain Clueless I guess or don't watch or listen to the news

Judie said...

Good afternoon.

Seeing the feeding was just so much fun. Wish the rain would stop and temp would rise.

God news on Buddy. Hope he continues to improve with the new diet.

Loweeda, just check in. Updates will be plentiful.

Sandi, hope the condo sells quickly at asking price.

JudyE, stay safe if the weather becomes too scary.

Did some reading, nest checking, now think I'll bake some flourless cookies.

JudyE said...

OK GUYS those of you that took snip and pic need to put in EM album I just notice that they aren't in there I put the one I just did from still cam at 222 feeding

Judie said...

1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 egg. Mix. Spoon tsp size onto non-greased baking sheet, press with fork tines, sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake 350ยบ ~8 minutes. Will be soft. Let set a minute then move to cooling rack.

My version of creme pies Jo and Margy use to celebrate eaglets.

JudyE said...

up again

JudyE said...

looks like just a adjustment

Kay said...

JUDIE, I have all those ingredients and the cookies sound yummy. Wonder how they'd turn out with the use of Splenda rather than sugar ?

Lynne2 said...

Afternoon all and happy second bobblehead day! Really hope that third one comes tomorrow....

The only way Jufie can return is for Shirkey to rescue her. (insert evil chuckle here)

Wanda, glad you had a fun FFN! I know it will never be the same without Gene but what a blessing you you have in the family you raised together!

Andy, glad no harm done during the quake but what a typical Californian to say it wasn't too bad...LOL! We've had a quake here and I about peed myself!

Judie, what are these "flourless" cookies??

Lynne2 said...

woopsie, I see the recipe for the cookies. Looks yummy!

stronghunter said...

Good afternoon,

Hmm, I have all of those ingredients except I do not think there is a cup of sugar in the house. I do have Splenda, though.

Got a glimpse of one of the little ones when the adult moved a bit.

stronghunter said...

Practiced bowling. Want the team to stay in first place. :)

Kay said...

SHIRLEY, if you try JUDIE's p-nut butter cookies using Splenda, let me know what you think. I don't even want to get the p-nut butter jar out around Penny, so will have to bake them some evening after she retires for the night. ☺

stronghunter said...

Will do, Kay. I haven't made any decision yet. I could halve the recipe. Will need to double check the peanut butter supply. Should be a jar down in the kitchen.

Judie said...

Oh my goodness. Don't know about a Splenda substitute. Could give it a try.

Shirley, if you halve the recipe, how're gonna cut the egg in half?

Just made 4 dozen (2 batches). I needed to bake them about 12 minutes. Probably because I used an extra large egg plus humidity.

Anyway, let me know, please.

Judie said...

Babes are covered. Still looks misty and fluff looks damp. Hoped I might catch a feeding.

Sandperson is pacing the hallway. Wants me to find a disguise. Says he is in abject fear that Shirky will rescue Jufie.

Soon back to the scullery. Tilapia (sp), asparagus, salad.

BBL

stronghunter said...

Okay, trying how to slice a raw egg.



I suppose I could break it and use half of the stuff inside.

Kay said...

What do you gals think about the kind of peanut butter used ? I buy Jif's Fat Free---here I wonder if an oilier butter is needed as they bake on an ungreased pan. What to do, what to do ? I hate to waste ingredients in trial and error, but I guess that's what good cooks do all the time as they work to perfect recipes. Half an egg, huh, another poser ! Most of us use large eggs I imagine, but a small egg would be the ticket in this case.

JudyE said...

babies are exposed check it out

stronghunter said...

Feeding!

JudyE said...

see one egg

Kay said...

Dinner time with the small one getting extra attention right now. What a couple of cuties !

NatureNut said...

TWO bobbleheads and one egg are showing!!!!!!

Judie said...

How sweet. Twilight dinner for the eaglets.

stronghunter said...

Precious!

stronghunter said...

Another California quake.

4.1

No damage reported.

Judie said...

Shirley, you and Kay are just too funny.

I use Jiff extra creamy. I think the additional fat is needed to help with taste and with holding the ingredients together as dough. Also, the salt seems crazy but it makes a huge difference. Just a few crystals on each cookie.

Kay said...

Dinner time for me, too, along with listening to Prairie Home Companion. Then on to some Brit TV on PBS, then on to bed if The Sandman arrives between 9 and 10. Can that be arranged, JUDIE ?

Joplin Shirley called to say they've had a good 24 hours in Critical Care with Gary--he's holding his own. She thanks all for prayers and support--I can hear the profound gratitude in her voice. I'm going to call her about 8 as she will have talked to his nurse at about 5 this evening.

Love and Prayers for all !

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Kay said...

JUDIE, we're pretty good at turning a molehill into a mountain, aren't we ?

Another quake or big aftershock---good thing my Lauren finds them "exciting" !

Kay said...

And another thing, maybe I could add a tsp. of vegetable oil to make up for the wrong peanut butter. Soon the recipe is not going to resemble your recipe at all !
