Post by MaryF » Tue Feb 27, 2018 9:16 pm

Welcome to all of the eagle lovers and chatters from the SWFEC thread---or anyone who cares to join in. I'm so happy to be able to set up this thread where you all can chat---and be chatty ---to your heart's content! :thumlft: You can talk about the eagles, your pets, your grandkids, your gardens---you can talk back a forth to each other--post pictures. Just keep it friendly---and clean and PLEASE--no politics. :D Just remember about 3 smilies per post and there you go!! Hope you will all enjoy your chatty thread but please remember to post your eagle poems. observations and screen captures from the cam on our other thread. We would surely miss those.

The new page, the new page. Thanks, Mary, for transitioning us over to this new forum. It looks great!

Re-posting my reply here in case it was not seen in the "old" Chatters forum.

Hard to beat you, Phil :D

Sorry to hear about the situation in Dale Hollow. Eagles prayers for that family.

Oh no. I’m very sad.
About Smola nest, baron, baroness and solo.
Important Announcement 3.2.18~ From Editor Trygve Sørvaag ~

I am very sorry to inform everyone that the live Smola eagle cam with Baron & Baroness has gone offline permanently. Today I'm as tired as you guys. I'm one of many, many of whom have followed Baron Blue and Baronesse Barfot by fast-paced cameras in the mooring at Smøla. Therefore, it is no pleasure to announce today that we will no longer send live from the Eagle Eagle or the other cameras at Smøla. The explanation is simple: the Zoo editorial staff simply has no budgets to continue.

I would like to thank you personally for all the wonderful viewers who have followed us through the last two years. Without you, we would never have had this. Their commitment on the pages and in the comments box means that we have a very good overview of what happened in the nest hour by hour. Without that effort, we had definitely missed a lot of highlight. A big thank you to Svein Junge and the team who have led the eagle project locally.

Now we are thanking us from Smøla and wish Baron Blå and Baronesse Barfot good luck with the next breeding season. May there be many new kids to strengthen the vulnerable oat stock!

With best regards

Trygve Sørvaag

:ohmy: Oh! Very sad, too, to hear about the Smola cams not continuing. Watching Baron, Baroness and adorable Solo last year was my first introduction to the White Tailed Eagles. Solo was such a joy and a character; I know he enriched many of our lives with his antics, explorations, and love for his parents (and vise versa).

Pascale that is sad about the Smola nest, I know you and many others followed the nest from the moment you introduced us all to it ! Many thanks for sharing the nest with us last year and adding to the many hours of eagle watching. Now we will enjoy the scraps we have all taken and carry those fond memories in our :rh:

I’m right here with all of you. Trying to figure things out in this forum. Pascale, I just saw your message and answered you. I’m very sad about what I just read about the Smola nest. :cry1:

I’ve been enjoying and at times crying, reading all of your posts, but have been so incredibly busy to post anything. Sorry!

Welcome here. It’s easy to post but don’t hesitate to ask 😊

Welcome DH4 ! It was a rough start for you but you did it !

Still no egg at DC Cam...they are not working a lot on the nest too 🙁

Stevie, may you travel on the winds of time with never another worry. I have been inspired by your gallant effort of survival during your short life, but your path has a different meaning now and whatever that holds for you, I know you will excel at it. Fly like the wind forever more.

Rainna

NestFriend, may you find some quiet and calmness, quality of free time very soon!
By the way just carve out a trip to the local ice cream store and have yourself a treat, by yourself and for yourself! Just because you can! :%: :thumlft:

So very sad about Stevie. RIP sweet baby and fly high and free with all others that have crossed the bridge too soon.

Thanks Pascale, I will ask if I have problems with posting my avatar later on. I know everyone here are always ready to help. :rh:

Rainna, thanks for posting the links for the new forums in the old one—I would have had a hard time find it for sure. And by the way, I will take your advise...I will have an ice cream or maybe a frozen yogurt after I finish my housework. :)

Good Saturday morning, friends

Phil, good news about DH4. So sad to hear about Stevie, who I know you and many others loved. I know he is soaring high above, strong and free, with all the others that have gone before.

Rainna, that was a beautiful expression about Stevie. I love your E9 avatar! My photo is one I took of a nearby eagle.

Nestfriend, so good to see you hear. Take good care!

Hi, Pascale. I'm surprised the First Lady hasn't produced an egg yet. Last year it was February 19 and 23, so she is quite late. I am wondering if all of the juvie visitors they have had lately have kind of thrown her schedule off.

Decorah North nest, only 1 egg that was laid February 25. They are thinking that will be it for this year. The last 2 years, she has laid 3 eggs, so this is kind of unusual.

I loved this poem; brought tears to my eyes. I hope you all do, too.

Two Little Eaglets

By Jim Weller (June 16, 2011)

Two little eaglets

Way up in the tree.

Two little eaglets,

Looking down at me.

You sit there in your aerie

Staring at the sky,

And every time you flap your wings

My heart lets out a sigh.

Silly little eaglets

Hovering o’er the nest,

Do you even know that you can fly?

Your wings will stand the test.

Do you even care that I’m waiting here

To see you soaring high?

I’m tethered to the earth below

But you, you own the sky!

If I were an eaglet

And could do what you can do,

Without a moment’s hesitation

I would launch into the blue.

But wait! One’s perched upon the edge!

It leans into the breeze!

It spreads its wings! Then hops back down.

You’re such a little tease.

I know that you are old enough

Your wings are sure and strong,

Dancing high across the sky

Is where eagles belong.

You’re made for inspiration.

You can make the mute heart sing

Rejoicing in your majesty

Borne on outstretched wing.

“Why don’t you fly?” I ask out loud.

“When will you learn to soar?

I know that you are ready!

What are you waiting for?”

Then deep within my spirit,

The eaglets speak somehow.

They say, “We’ll take that leap of faith

When we hear God whisper, ‘Now!’ “

Laniebelle, I totally agree with NestFriend,! That is a beautiful poem and so touching!
Thank you for sharing it with us.

I am in awe of your avatar your so very lucky to have the beauty of local eagles!

I just wanted to mention a little correction, my avatar is of E8, not E9. All 3 of them at one point have had that same pose looking into the camera. E7, E8, and E9. I'm looking forward to see if both E10 & E11 add to the "Close-up pose" photo album. :luck:

Hey thay was some windstorm/storm in Washington DC. It toppled a famous 200 year old tree there in dupont circle and Andrew Jackson once owned that land. A very historic tree. Many tree problems in the DC area but I see the DC eagles picked their tree well as it remains standing and intact. Don't worry first lady your tree is ok. Those horrible northeasters that move up the coast. I think they got wind up to 70 mph. Eagles seem to pick strong trees. Now you can lay your egg first lady.

I was watching DC Cam hoping to see an egg, or TFL working on the nest.

What I saw is sure not an egg !!! :angry: :tt: :banghead:
Yes I am that angry ! It's a darn plastic bag.

Rainna u should take your vit. d with the heaviest meal of the day. It is fat soluble. The level in 2018 should be over 50 in todays world.

I agree, I had a zero level of vit D (and I must avoid sun) so I now take vit D and it's really getting better. Rainna, you should try after having blood test of course

Thank you Eagleslanding & Pascale ! :huggie:
I have no idea what my vit. D level is, but see doc soon and will have it tested and check for interactions with other meds. Thank you again, I will try it soon and hopefully it will subside this flare-up. I have been so pleased with my hubby stepping up with his help.

Thank you so much !

Rainna

Eagleslanding: My daughter lives in North Carolina and told me this past week that they had winds like she has never seen before. This sure has been a wacky weather year so far and so happy to hear the DC nest stood strong!
We are expecting 4 to 7 inch's of snow starting tomorrow afternoon till Tuesday morning. I'm hoping my cousin will help my aunt with snow removal as I can not help right now. My uncle who also helps her is in the hospital, we came way to close to losing him. My grandparents raised me 70%, so my Aunts and Uncle's are siblings to me.

Rainna and Pascale. Your body is incapable of making vit. d. That is why a certain amount of sunshine per day even 15 minutes is important. If low levels as in my sister in law the doctor gave her 2 injections of 50000 i.u. on the spot and she was still low. She now takes 2000 i.u. of the vit per day. She orders her vits. Google it. Vit d is natural to our body.

Hi Everyone! It's been a long time since I posted anything but I've checked in now and then to get the latest on the nests.

I like this new forum sight. Thank you, Mary, for setting it up for us. I'm hoping to see some of our original posters here soon!

Phillipe, thank you for posting pictures and information about other nests. Some are sad and others are just joyful.

The new Smilies have a Panda now. Don't remember seeing that one before. Still no squirrel. :cry1: Guess the :raccoon: will have to double as a squirrel!

Hoping you all have a good week!

Dare i say rainna dr. mercola is good to google in association with ra and vit d although he doesn't see pts now. Also get a crp level for inflammation when you see your dr.

The swfl eagle nests getting quite interesting now. I suppose one of the early morning watchers or night team will announce they all have branched and will post some great branching scaps this week.
