Good morning Nesters :)

Where oh where is our dear friend John; oh where oh where can he be :D
Hope he finds our new home soon; I miss his good morning and good night messages.

We haven't seen Diana or Sally yet, but I'm sure they will arrive soon!

Doreen, hope you are OK. I saw some of the storms on our news. We have been fortunate here on lower Vancouver Island; we haven't had much snow and not too many wind storms. However, the weather has been much worse on the lower mainland :(

Debs, you must be very busy with your new shop :thumlft: Congratulations to you and your family :huggie:

Marg, I see most of your eagles have returned to their territories :thumlft:

I haven't been out birding too many times but the season is still early for some of our eagles. They are starting to spend more time at their nests now. I'm having lunch with 3 of my sisters today then going for a nice walk.

We'll be flying to Fort Lauderdale in 6 weeks for our next cruise :woohoo: One of my first cousins and her hubby are going to drive to Southampton on May 5th to meet us and spend the day with us. Our ship will be in port until 11pm so that will give us lots of time together.

Must go and get a few things done around here. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend :grhug:

Afternoon Nesters :bye 1:

I am totally need some Tim's :w00t:

:coffee2: :coffee2: :coffee2:

John i hope you find your way here we miss you.

Doreen so glad you made it here ... it was a bit confusing in the beginning sorry about that :ohmy: I am so sorry to hear about your storms :cryhanky: that is just terrible that some people lost their homes!

Kay thanks i have been so busy but now that i hired my daughter and she is getting orientated i think i will eventually have more time to relax....but for now things are still pretty crazy as we get things set up :w00t:

Marg great to see you here too ... hope you and Earl are doing okay.

Heading over to a couple of nests then have to go to work ... hope everyone has a good Friday :hug:

Kay, so nice when you go on your next cruise :woohoo: yes, our storms were quite violent, and left much destruction
Marge, happy for your nest sighting, will have to find your new pics, got lost there for awhile. do we have to sign in every time we leave, then come back, I mean log in like a new person ??
welcome Raffs, enjoy the Nesters group :hug:

Morning Nesters :bye 1:

Did everyone remember to spring ahead :dunno:

Raffs :bye 1: warm welcome from all of us here ... i totally missed your earlier post ... i am bad :w00t:

John :bye 1: :announce: hope you land here soon we are missing your sunshine and your regular nighty nights here :fonz:

Doreen boy you guys sure got hammered with bad weather; i saw on the news they were calling it a snow hurricane :cry1: Hope things are better now. Well it looks like we have a new pair at NCTC although the male may be Smitty but i am still not sure about that...such a sad turn of events there. Territorial disputes are becoming more and more common with the recovery of the bald eagle and less and less territories especially in areas that do not have lots of trees ... or nesting spots.

Kay, Marg hope you girls are doing okay :bye 1:

Diana, Sally would love to hear from you :dunno: I know everyone has busy lives ... just missing you here.

Now i have to scram have mountains of paperwork to do ... Doreen i will try to call you tonight see how the day goes :huggie:

Hope yàll have a terrific Sunday :huggie:

Deb, I stll cannot believe we have truly lost our Belle, and Smitty and Belle nest :cry1: all these years we loved her so much, this is the part of eagle watching I cannot accept, I hurt so much and so deep, wondering how she's feeling and doing. I hope if she's left, Smitty has gone with her, I don't feel she was dying, I think she was wounded and needed time to heal, but she didn't want to give up her home. well, nature will do what it will, I will eventually I may accept it.
welcome to Nesters Raff :hug:
once more, goodnight Deb and friends :bye 1:

Evening Nesters :bye 1:

John we are going to have to send the white coats out to look for you :w00t: :mihihi: :Cool: I will send you an email.

Doreen I know it was heartbreaking and it all unraveled and came to a head on Feb 28 but the intruders were in the area for sometime prior to this and i think that is why Belle laid that egg so late. I do feel like she is gone ... passed on ... i would love to be wrong ... i just know she would not give up ... she would fight to the death for her egg, Smitty and her territory. Some people think it is Smitty on the nest with the new female ... i think it may be a new male on the nest with this new female ... she is the largest female i have ever seen on live cam!!!

Kay, Marg missing you girls here too.

Hugs all around :huggie:

hi Deb, finally got in here with a lot of help from Judy, a very lot, and I appreciate it a lot. was going to watch the cam a little today, very hard, not really interested but I want to try where this has been our nest for so many tears. but got blindsided by a bunch of things to do, and next fix my printer which is flashing error. how are you feeling? tired out I imagine from all your things to do , but soon maybe your daughter will be helping out and things will be better. ok, maybe chat soon :luck: goodnight Deb and Terri and anyone else landing here :bye 1:

hi Deb, glad you ee'd John, sorry he is so busy, hope he misses us and comes back after awhile. yes, I enjoyed chatting with you the other night, always do. Kay mentioned back aways when she is leaving on next cruise, think in about 4-5 weeks from now, not positive, read back if you can a little bit and you'll see it. storms over and now we have freezing temps, and spring is in two days :woohoo: this coming week I have Boston Dr. apt. hope the weather stays calm.

John, we miss your little notes of interest, and how is Cindy and Maya? hope you are all doing well.

Marge, nice to be in the new place now, hope I can continue to get on :luck: have any new pics for us? :D

Kay, miss your bird pics also, weather too poor to get out much this year I guess, hope all is well with you and your family

Diana, Sally and any other Nesters miss you and hope all is good :hug:

have a good evening all :bye 1:

Hi Dee, Raffs and Debs.

Dee sorry to hear about the appts. sending my positive thoughts to you. :rh: :huggie:

Thanks for the link Raffs I may check them occasionally. As Debs says there are so many nests to check on......

Debs, hope your spring comes soon the flowering bushes etc. here are a few weeks behind this year. Yes my Stalashen pair are incubating. It's always a guessing game until the eaglet/s get bigger. :puzz: Same as the Chapman nest, I have to get reports from our friends who live close to the Chapman nest.
