Great shot of the fisherman. As a photography, I know how difficult it is to get this kind of photo. Such dedicated and good parents these two eagles are.

Mavis

Both parents in the nest. I don't see Wee One...I think she is under one parent while the other one de-furs or de-feathers something. Hard to tell because the wind is blowing so hard it blowing whatever it is away.

Cherrycarol

Nice Shot! No wonder they can catch them so fast!! It looked like Justice was feeding Liberty! I have to look at the others now.

Mavis

Wee One is up now and being fed some kind of red meat...I'm thinking it is one of Judy's coots!

I hear the geese. I sure miss seeing the river and the river lights at night.

I'm not sure what that is...looks like it might have fur...only one parent on nest now.

Judith Hart

Parent in the Berry nest feeding the eaglet.....finally! It must be the male I see all the toes....just flew off.

Roger S.

Great photo! Thanks for sharing.

R L ML

Great sequence of pictures. Thanks for sharing them with us and all you do for all of us. I sent the pictures to my timeline so I can easily look at them whenever I want. Saw Alcoa and John Riches mentioned in the Des Moines Register yesterday talking about all the eagle and other bird cams. Much of the article was about the Dubuque nest with a large picture of a parent feeding their 3

Denny

Right now in the ttv what is that red spot on the eagles wing

Denny

Looks almost like she's been shot

Denny

just let me know I'm not seeing thing

Cristine

No worries, Denny. It's just the little red dot that shows up in the middle of the screen every once in a while :)

Denny

OK had me worried

Cristine

I know, right? I wonder if it has something to with the AVG security notice in the corner.

Cherrycarol

Justice brought in another stick & they are eating there last meal before bed. Yea that red spot is scary at times.

Cristine

Both L and J in the nest. Liberty trying to mother the Wee One, while Justice is working on his dinner.

Mavis

Cristine...I'm watching, too. Seems like a nice family get-together. I hear a lot of bird/duck calls below the nest...the rain frogs seem unusually loud. Something has those ducks upset. I'm wondering if I hear coyote below ...yes...I think I do. Boy...something is working them up...loud below the nest. They need a donkey down there to scare the coyotes away! Wish I could help them..they sound in distess.

Mavis

I posted too soon. I wonder what Justice is eating...can't tell if it has fur or feathers...but it is black. Man...something has the everyone vocal...hear so much noise. Wee One has managed to get completely under Mom...took her awhile to manage it. I wonder if all that ruckus has her upset...it is unsettling for me...

Cristine

Well, Yikes. Coyotes? Something is wrong with my sound and I can't hear a darn thing. I wondered what was going on. Ooops! There goes Justice.

Coleen Perilloux Landry

Liberty has not settled down yet, the noises below have her on alert. Wonder if there is a Flying Coyote. Such a good mom. The poor baby in Berry is sleeping all alone, again. And the MNBound eagles are soaked, mom and three babies and the nest and nest bowl.

Mavis

9:50 PM EDT

Liberty is finally sleeping with head tuck in behind her back. The noise below is not as vocal now...

TTV is totally black except for the free advertising for AVG...at least we don't have Norton in the middle of the screen....just AVG in the lower right...I can live with that much better!

Goodnight everyone

Wendy

Goodnight, John Boy.

Cherrycarol

Mavis it looks like the storm is headed your way now. Lots of heros from the last one. A dad saving his kids & one saving his wife. Brings tears to my eyes. Rudy is all tucked in like mom sleeps, Calm today but gloomy. At least no wind now. LOL Carol

Mavis

8:22 AM EDT

Carol, seems like the good in people shine right through at the most needed times. We do what we can to protect ourselves, but often find we are helpless in these storms. It is so sad...

The wind is blasting the nest. Parent is letting the nest air out...Wee One decides to get up....raises those wings...topples over on right side...decides after his PS , that the best place to be is back down in the nest bowl! Cute as a button this baby is.

Good morning everyone...looks like a dreary day ahead for much of the East and middle East...

beamg

Good morning everyone.

Happy 4 week b-day Rudy! Parent just flew in and is gone already so Rudy stays in the nest bowl. Sounds like the world is still waking up around the nest. The wind isn't toobad right now, not much bobbing around going on. Still looks gloomy outside though. Sure could use some sun! I emptied 3" of rain out of my guage yesterday so it'll take a while for that to dry up enough to do much work outside.

Hoping those storms stay away for a while now. Feels like everyone has had enough to deal with for the past week or so.

Mavis, are you getting a storm now?

Carol, are you working today? If so, I bet you and your customers will be watching at the Salon.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, R U D Y !!

I voted, by hand, for your name 983 times on that last Friday...guess it is about time I call you by your name. You are such a darling...and so many of us waited for you to arrive ...you should have heard the cheers of joy at our first sighting of you! You have already weathered some of the worst storms. You should be well seasoned for your life ahead when it is your time to soar. With Liberty and Justice as your parents, Alcoa as your guardians, and we as your fans...we are hoping for a good and long life for you. For now, we will enjoy your growth, be thrilled at your accomplishments, and fly with you with every branching. Just stay away from the edges and don't give this old girl too many cardio workouts.

One more thing, Rudy...when you leave us...we will be waiting for your return, so learn well dear one...and don't forget us because we will not forget you!

Judith Hart

Our baby face ate well this morning, thought I saw L/J feed her something about a foot long, she gulped it right down.

MN Bound nest...The two in that nest ate well and appear dry.

MN DNR nest....all are soaked. The young in that nest never seem to move from where they were hatched, all clumped together whenever I look.

Mavis

Bea..we must have been posting at the same time...just saw your comment.

A real black cloud is moving over me now. Rain is beginning. I thought it night stay to the north of me.

Judy, the Berry College eaglet is a real darling...and so alone all the time, He spends his time on the lower, right edge looking over and down. I wonder if he sees the students beneath. His nest looks wet and he looks to be drying out some. I wish that cam had sound. I wish even more that he had a playmate. I worry about the DNR nest...those babies have had a rough ride. They need a real break in the weather up there.

Coleen Perilloux Landry

Liberty is a good housekeeper; she just flew away with a carcass of a coot. Little one seems so well adjusted. Checked on the Berry eagle who tried to snuggle under mother's breast, that poor eaglet is such a loner. The nest in Minnesota where one of the three died, seems to be doing well. In spite of the wet birds and wet nest everyone is eating quite well this morning. Have not checked DNR yet.

Mavis

10:26 AM EDT

If you were not watching...you missed it. I laughed and laughed:

WHAT THE HECK JUST HAPPENED??

Rudy was left alone one the nest for a long time. Mom finally arrives with a fresh hot breakfast (coot). Rudy perks up...excited...even plucks at a feather. Then...Mom picks up the coot in her beak and flies off with it. Rudy just looks after her and "what the heck! Come back" look captures Rudy's little face. Life is not fair, little one...need to harden up now!

beamg

Well I missed all of that!

I should check in the MN DNR nest once again too. I just don't seem to make the nest rounds like I did a couple years ago. I also just thought about the Loon cam we all watched a couple years ago. Need to check there too and see if the Loons returned to MN yet.

Just look at the color markings on Rudy already! And those wings look huge too when she stretches them out. I wish we could see the river again in the background of the TTV. s i g h - Would love to see if the barges are going by.

Mavis

10:52 AM EDT

You just can't make this up!

Liberty returns, Rudy raises up but when breakfast seems off the menu...she settles back down and then...she starts tucking the straw in around her...just like Mom always does. It is amazing what, and how fast they learn! It like their little brains pick up and retains everything. Rudy is especially adapt to picking up the nesting practices. We've already watched her playing with small sticks and trying to place them near the wall. They are absolutely amazing.

I've watched this nest since the hatching of the triplets,...I learn something new every day. What a joy this experience has been thru the years.,,,.Thank you, Alcoa.,

Judith Hart

Do the Canada Geese stay there year round? Sounds like there's millions honking...Yep, nesting, hatching...5 to 12 eggs per nest. I'll bet you have to watch where you walk and carry an umbrella. Are they a problem in the area?

Sure is noisy this morning, lots of Blue Jays, geese....wonder what's going on?

Cristine

Missed that, Mavis! I wonder what she did with the coot? The nest actually looks pretty clean for once, compared to what it has looked like in the past. Except for that black thing that looks like it could fall off the edge at any moment. Maybe everything is buried like that flat piece of "something" that Justice dragged out and ate yesterday.

The Berry nest actually had two fish in it this morning. I see the parent is sharing one with the baby for once.. When I watched before, the parent was hogging the food all to himself while the baby watched. That nest makes me sad. I saw that, Coleen, when the baby tried to snuggle under the parent and was pretty much ignored. They ended up on opposite sides of the nest with the baby staring down again.

Only 39 degrees at the nest this morning. Welcome back to winter :( Only going to get up to around 45. We need some sun. The weatherman says it may peek out by Friday.

beamg

Judith, yes Canada geese stay in this area year round. They didn't use to but I think there are now a lot of man made ponds and lakes that attract them and keep them around. At BBP (Ben Butterworth Parkway)across the river from the nest there is a spot in particular that makes a person think they are walking through a dog potty area but it's from the geese! You do not want to look up when they are flying directly overhead!

Mavis, you're so good with your description of Rudy's actions! Being an only child, do you think she picks up these things faster than those in a nest of multiples would? It just seems so grown up to be doing all of that already!

I have 3 gorgeous goldfinches at my feeder this morning! My husband saw them last week already but today was the first for me this year. I just love looking at them and it's eve better that they are Iowa's state bird.

Awwww, Rudy is needing a little snuggle and warming up. She's doing her best to get all the way under mom. Or is it dad there now? I still say they need name tags, just for me.

skip

Rudy is cuddling to mama! awwww! I agree with beamg. Cant tell who is mama or papa!

Darlene Nichols

........well good morning all.....Mavis it appears that you are under the gun, now....hope it moves fast over you and you don't get such god-awful rain, wind. Judy........I,ve been concerned about you....don't know what part of NC you are in and whether or not you are in the line of fire. TAKE CARE BOTH OF YOU ! Has any one heard from Colleen ? I was going to sign in with facebook (and give up on those silly numbers and letters ) but I get some cautionary note that the website isn't safe so I guess I'll have to stick with the no/letters for now. Does anyone here live up the East coast?.....storms are moving in that direction so be careful if you do. Maybe things can start to dry out now out,

beamg

Skip, do you live close to the nest? We need to find someone willing to put name tags on them just for you and me! lol

Cristine, is the real spring ever going to get here? I am so ready for weather that will let us just walk out the door without having to put layers on!

beamg

Darlene, I have been getting that same cautionary note for days now and, while I'm sorry you're getting that, I glad to know it isn't just me or my computer. At least the numbers are easier for me to read! Coleen posted earlier this morning, just before 10:30.

beamg

Can Rudy vocalize without it looking like her mouth is open? Just rying to figure out the squeeing I'm hearing.

Debbie Duncan

Happy Birthday Little Wee One! We love you no matter what we call you!!!

Cristine

Bea... I was wondering that, too. It didn't look like she was the one making that noise. I had heard that yesterday, too. It was really loud and it almost sounded like a Juvie close by.

Mavis

Darlene...Lucille and I think Oma live on the E. coast. I think both live in NJ but could be wrong.

I am not getting the weather that Pensacola and AL is getting. Thank goodness...my fields are already wet enough.

I think you can sign in with FB on Typepad and be safe, Darlene. I don't know why, but that warning just started popping up a couple of weeks ago. Something about the certificate has expired. I was hesitant to log back in but finally did...have had no problems.

I don't know what Lib did with that coot. I saw her bring it in...start to defeather it...Rudy was up and ready...then she just picked it up in her beak and flew off. She was gone for a little while and have no clue what she did.

What about you, Darlene? Will the storm stay south of you or are you in the line of fire again? You've had your share of blizzards and storms, too. I am wondering, with this year of unusual weather, what our hurricane season will be like. We were lucky the past couple of years. Last year was erie..almost too calm for us.

Gold finches...love those birds, too. I've only seen one this year and wonder if I missed them or what. Sure loved those grosbeaks...am jealous you have them now.

Cristine

Something is really getting de-furred or de-feathered. Now the Wee One is getting fed. There's that sound again. I guess it is her making it.

Bea Griffore

Well, let's see if my computer blows up or what. I went ahead with the FB login in spite of the warning since Mavis was brave enough to do it. At least it did let me login so it's a guessing game from here to see what happens.

Cristine, I'm still not convinced it's Rudy making the noise but since I can't tell for sure it does sound like an eaglet. Now it's gone and Rudy is all tucked in except for her backend. Makes me want to get an electric blanket and also get tucked in.

Skedaddle

Bea, if you watch carefully, when you hear they squeezing you can see Rudi's body move in sync to the sound. Sometimes when she is all tucked in.

Mavis

Black clouds over my head again...

Debbie..just saw your post. If I don't refresh the iPad...I don't see the newer posts. Are you in this line of storms that are passing thru too?

Judy..looks like you are going to have bad weather all day...and you've had bad weather for the past couple of days, too. Bad weather and skinny grosbeaks...you need to get your act together, girl...fatten up those grosbeaks.

I see on Laurie's FB page that she purchased a hummingbird nest starter. Not sure what it is called...but it is like an artificial limb with leaves that she attached to the ceiling of her porch in a corner. She already has baby hummers! I gotta check into that!

Judith Hart

Mavis, I haven't seen the sun in over a week. Has anyone? We have had heavy fog, all the wild birds are soaked and I can't tell one from the other. I do see one out there pecking at the orange halves I put on the feeders, maybe the female Rose Breasted Grosbeak.
I do have a new bird, a Brown Thrasher, sings like a Mockingbird. I've never seen one before.

Cristine

You won't believe this, but I think I had a rose-breasted grosbeak under my feeder this morning! Only one. And it got chased away by a pair of Brown Thrashers that I have been seeing for the past week. Maybe they have a nest close by. Those birds are kind of cool to watch.... the way they scratch at the ground. I do love the songs they sing. I hope they stick around.
Oh my, sounds like the geese are having a wild party!

Bea Griffore

I wonder if the geese noises are an alert that an eagle is on the hunt? The river is close and the geese have babies on the river with them this time of year.

Skedaddle, I finlly saw what you saw. It was like trying to catch a ventriloquist moving his lips!

Judith, I think I remember seeing the sun this past Sunday.

Oh, a new bird to talk about - brown thrasher. I haven't seen one of those in a couple years but they're fun to watch when they send leaves just flying around under the shrubs.

Bea Griffore

Cristine, I hope your grosbeak hangs around for a while so you can watch. Have you had them before?

Cherrycarol

Rudy is all alone again. Becoming more frequent now. Mr John it would be nice to pull back the cam so we can see the river again. Got all my house calls done today! I need to charge for gas.

Darlene Nichols

.....hi everyone....I gritted my teeth and I THINK I signed in to facebook.......so far my computer hasn't blown up, so.... The storms roared thru here last night....big time rain, wind, thunder and lightening. LOts of trees down and several homes hit by lightening but that was pretty much it -oh- street flooding. No injuries. now the sun is shining, so all is good...................that Rudy is too smart for her own good, pretty soon she'll start rearranging sticks and wanting Justice to bring in more......loved your description of her nest work, Mavis. I think we may have a diva to watch !

Mavis

Darlene...I think you got that right...she appears to be a real diva! I like her.
Glad you made it through the storms safely.

I've got to look up brown thrasher. I think I saw them when I was in NC last summer. We may have them here...just got to look them up. Never paid much attention to the birds until the eagles became part of my life. I would fill the feeders and see them...but never paid close attention. I sure have been missing out on a lot of free pleasure right outside my window.

Got to run to work...y'all keep posting....I'll catch up later.

Rachel Gaines

Happy four week birthday, little Rudy.
You are such a fine eaglet; and it's a joy to watch you grow.
You're making Mom and Dad proud, and one day soon you will be a beautiful eagle gliding over the treetops.

Judith Hart

Has anyone seen Rudy out of the nest bowl today? It sounds like she's making a toothless whistle.

Judith Hart

I just looked at a few of the nests, and all eaglets and parents are dry. Finally!

Cherrycarol

Nice to see them all dried out. They look so miserable when soaked.

Cherrycarol

Looks like Liberty is going to sleep

Denny

WE have Brown Thrasher all over the place here in North Georgia, In fact they are the Georgia state bird.. The Rose Breasted Grosbeaks I'm seeing on my feeder 1 Larger male 1 smaller one looks like a yearling that hasn't filled out yet and the famales on my feeder at the sane time. They don't get along well with the other birds..

Denny

They finally got the georgia falcon cam on line. they set the camera up twice and the falcons moved three times so they waited until hatch and they set it up again..

Darlene Nichols

.....I saw that Carol! she had her head tucked under her wing, Rudy was in the nest bowl and Justice was eating......funniest scene.......all doing their own thing......poor Lib, she must really be tired

Judith Hart

It looks like the nest is going to get more rain.
Strange how the RB Grosbeak females look like gigantic sparrows.

Darlene Nichols

,,,,,,,wait......you mean you've got to sign in with facebook EVERY time you post a comment?..........how is that any better than typing a bunch of numbers?

Mavis

Darlene...I only have to update my sign in every few days...but...if you accidently hit the typepad logo...you may sign yourself out. Did you check the box that said "remember me" or "keep signed in". I can't remember the exact words. Sometimes, when I scroll down..my fingers will accidently hit the logo and I have to sign in again. I like to sign in with Typepad instead of FB. Don't ask me why...but I do. All you have to give is your email address and name when you sign up with typepad.... you gave that to them anyway when you posted by putting in the codes. Bea signs in with FB and she feels comfortable using that method. Either one will work.

Mavis

Darlene...I didn't mean the lily pad logo...if you accidently hit the red "sign out" by the logos...you will have to sign back in. I've done that several times when I scroll down on the iPad.

Darlene Nichols

......thank you Mavis.....I'll try typepad

Mavis

Right now...you are doing good on FB. Either will work...just takes getting used to the quirks, I guess. I like it much better than those darn codes...

Goodnight...

Jassy

LOLOL I missed that, that would have been awesome to capture!!

The wee one is getting soo big, can't believe its been 4 weeks... after the wee one flies off I will be so sad because my eagle season will be over till next year.. she sure is getting noisy and finding her voice for sure

Cherrycarol

Good morning Only 41. Burr up up to 70's by Sat. L & Rudy look a little wet. R is till under mom!

Cherrycarol

Mom must have left to get breakfast. I wonder why Justice dosm't bring it anymore?

Coleen Perilloux Landry

Checked on all the eagles this morning. It is cool and cold at some of the nests. Liberty's nest looks wet. Berry's nest is bare with no food and the eaglet looking over the edge. Would that we all fare as good as the eagles do in unpleasant conditions.

Joyce

Happy May Day Rudy Patooty. The butter ball must be a girl because of the preening going on. Fix that hair sister .

Sunny here in the Sierras. My birds are arriving every day Hummers,Stellar Jays, nuthatches, robin, raven's and the wild turkeys.
So much for today. Off to do Garden Therapy for my club. No , not therapy for the club but for a Senior home.

Cristine

Good morning all! A cold West wind of around 16 MPH right now at the nest. Liberty is doing such a great job of trying to cover that "little" one. It won't be long, and she will be as big as L and J. Liberty, being such a good mother, I wonder if she will still try to cover her?

I see half of a fish in the nest and "something dark-colored" towards the top of the nest. Also, there is a white fluffy "poof" of something at the 12:00 position that I probably don't even want to know about :)

I check in on that poor Berry Eagle from time-to-time. Yesterday she was practicing her flying from one side of the nest to the other, and then I saw her actually jump to the branch in front of the camera! She just tugs at my heart.

No unusual birds at my feeder this morning... just the usual Grackles, a dove, and a couple of Chipping Sparrows(those little ones with the light brown stripe on their heads.) They build a nest in my evergreen tree every year and sing so pretty:) Oh, and there's a Brown Thrasher "thrashing around" under the bushes. It just occurred to me how they may have gotten their name!

Have a great day

Geeze

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Four Week Birthday Dear Rudy!
Happy Birthday to you!

I watched you being born -- it was soooo awesome -- and how much you've grown since that time. What a good little eaglet you are. I look forward to following you for a long time to come.

Judith Hart

I picked up on some chat that something is going on at the RF eagle cam....COULD be that their eaglet is entangled in some fishing line.
http://new.livestream.com/rfeaglecam/events/2525155

Judith Hart

RF Eagle Cam...Yes, their eaglet is entangled in fishing line, hard to spot it with all the shading on the nest....It's wrapped around the wing, possibly the foot also.
VA Fish and Game has been contacted.

Cristine

RF Eagle Cam....Oh, poor little thing. I can't bear to watch him struggling to free himself.

Cristine

RF Eagle Cam ... the chat says there is a hook on the fishing line. The parents must have brought in a fish that was still attached :(

Cristine

Justice flies into the nest, starts eating a fish while giving little bits to Rudy while she is still under Liberty. Liberty then flies off, and Rudy gets up into his sitting position, does a PS and is ready for his meal! But then Justice gets distracted by something, so Rudy lays back down waiting patiently. So funny :)

Judith Hart

RF Eagle Cam....Climber about reached the nest.

Cristine

Thanks Judith! I will tune in!

Judith Hart

RF Eagle Cam...Job well done, put eaglet in a bag, lowered to the ground..climber stayed in the tree...removed the fishing line, brought the eaglet in the bag back up. Now safely in it's nest.
I think the climber has premature gray hair. Wonder why!!!
Exciting to watch, have some good screen shots.

Cristine

RF Eagle Cam....That was an amazing rescue, Judy. Fantastic to be able to watch it live! Poor little eaglet is all tuckered out after his ordeal. I wonder how how it will be until his parents come back. I can't believe they didn't attack the climber during the rescue. Thanks for sharing.

Cristine

I actually just saw a patch of blue! Are the clouds actually breaking up? Maybe we will get a dose of sunshine before the day is over. Wouldn't that be great?

Judith Hart

Rudy flapping her wings in the wild wind.
With her black feathers coming in on her back, it's shaped a little like a horseshoe.

Cristine

Oh dear. Makes me sad what's in the nest now :(

R L ML

SAw the last part of the rescue on the RF nest.Some one was wondering when the parents would return. Only a few minutes after the eaglet was released in the nest and the climber left the dad was in with a fish. LIttle one stretched out and quiet for a very long time, but when I checked back a few minutes ago it was up moving around on the very edge of the nest.

Cherrycarol

It is so great what people can do to help our eagles. Awesome! Rudy is sleeping as usually.

Coleen Perilloux Landry

I am thinking that the yellow puff on the nest is one of the baby goslings from the geese that we hear honking.
Congratulations and bravo to the people who removed the fishing line from the little eagle, I would never have thought to put it in a bag to lower it and I guess that is why I am not an eagle rescuer.
Will be cool and cold again tonight but all the babies in all the nest appear to have competent parents, except for one whom we all know. Rudy really likes to snuggle with her mother, doesn't she? Such a good mom Liberty is.

Laurie C.

Mavis, that's called a "Hummingbird House", I found it here: http://www.hummingbird-house.com/hummhouse.html

I've also seen it on Amazon but the shopping is cheaper if you get it directly. They come in sets of two.

Laurie C.

Oh and the picture on their website doesn't show the fake green branch. It came with it. I think it's something they added on later and didn't re-take the pictures.

R L ML

Saw an active time on the nest between 5:30 and 6:00 nest time. One up feeding Rudy and getting some for itself in between. Other adult flew in with something black and really worked at defeathering or defurring. Other adult left and later came back in with new nesting material and spent time getting it placed where she wanted it. The one cleaning the new prey must have been hungry as it really ate and it did share a bite or 2 with Rudy.
One flew off during a refresh.

Bea Griffore

Hi everyone. Finally made it here just for a peek. Been cleaning all day since we have a house showing tonight. I really don't like cleaning!

Such good news about the RF ealget with the fishing line! I bet the guy who climbed the tree loves his job. I know the one who climbed to rescue Harmon seemed so special. So thankful we have people like that!

Rudy is laying down in the nest with a parent on the lookout. I'm getting the spinning circle on the NV but the TTV is great. A couple goslings ended up in the nest today??? Awww, doesn't seem like they should be a meal but it happens. I know there are lots of them right now. I think I'd rather see a flopping fish in the nest.

Dalene, I have to login here daily with FB. I think it's because I log out of FB and shut down the computer every night and maybe some people leave theirs on overnight? But it's only once a day I have to do that, when it works right. So, if you get real chatty all day FB is way easier than the codes every time.

I better go. People should be here soon so we're going to leave while they look. Later.....

Mavis

Been gone all day and just catching up on the posts.

Laurie C. Thank you for the hummingbird house link. I see where you are already watching a new family that built a nest on your "limb". I was so impressed . I loved it.

Judy..how did you find that site and know what was going on? So glad you did. I saw where someone linked a video of it, so I wrent to Youtube and found the link that I could share here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ov9yElvG1dg&sns=em

Bea...this may be the day you sell your home...I know that would make you happy.

Rudy is so big now...beginning to wonder if she will ever be able to support herself on those legs. She needs to go on a diet with me!! I noticed her pantry is filling back up.

Speaking of legs...I noticed they put a leg band on the RF eaglet. I know the legs should be about adult size...but that eaglet's legs still looks small to me and that band looks pretty tight. I know these people know what they are doing...I just need something else to worry about.

I ate lunch overlooking the Suwannee River today with girls I graduated with. The river is out of its banks and has yet to get the GA water that will be coming down. I have a feeling we will have flooding again this year. That is some bad stuff to deal with.

Coleen Perilloux Landry

I notice some of you talking about logging in. I put this site on my Favorites and I click on that everytime I want to get on the Alcoa Davenport page.
I did the same with the other 4 nests that I follow. That way I just go down the line morning and evening checking on everyone like a town crier.

Mavis

Coleen, we were talking about logging in to typepad or any of the other given options to avoid putting in the dreaded codes when trying to post. If you log into one of these...your name appears in red (yours is in blue so you are not logged in), and you can post as often as you want without entering the codes.

Is anyone having trouble picking up the NV feed? I'm on iPad...I can get TTV but regardles of which browser I use...and I rebooted...I cannot get the NV to work for me. Just wondering if it is just me.

Skedaddle

It's not just you, Mavis. I'm gonna miss seeing liberty and Rudy snuggling down tonight!

Skedaddle

It's working!

Skedaddle

No, now it's not! Oh, pooh!

Mavis
