This is wonderful, Jack
Thank you for finding and sharing this.
I plan to keep a shortcut handy to keep an eye on things.
This to me is just plain...
...incredible. If we "keep an eye on things"...LOL...we'll be able to see the eggs being hatched. Ever' now and then, the eagle makes "gruntin'" noises. And I translated that into English. I think Eagles "mate" for life and each share in the household chores of the nest. So I translated the "grunts" of the Eagle that's in the nest into calling the mate..."Hey, get your butt in here and sit on these eggs awhile"....LOL
Thanks for the link,Jack........
reminds me of a situation my daughter is in,here in North Jersey.
The New Jersey Fish and Wildlife management paid her a visit last year and informed her there was a nesting pair living in the easement behind her property.They monitor the nest but gave her the number of who to call if she sees anything at all going on at the site.They explained if anything happened to either mate,the remaining one abandons the nest and any chicks in it,that's where F&W would step in to rescue any chicks.
The backyard of her house is huge and is bordered on two sides by the largest reservoir in North Jersey.There's an even bigger easement that starts where her property ends and the nest is located in one of the tall trees in the easement.Fish and Game told her the eagles chose the site because of the plentiful food source(reservoir).
There's only two ways to the nest,through her yard and that involves getting past trained Dobies or from the reservoir itself which is prohibited by Homeland Security since 9/11(they've paid a visit too)..lol.
She says it's impossible to see what if anything is going on in the nest due to her vantage point,just that it's a rush to be able to see those huge,beautiful birds once in a while.
LOL Good caption, Jack
I have shared this with Michael and Kelton. When I first showed it to Kelton, and he had watched it for a few seconds, he said, "OK, Mom, when does the scary guy jump into the picture to try and spook me?" It took some convincing to reassure him that it was for real! LOL
We have lots and lots of Bald and Golden Eagles around here, but it is always a treat to see one. This is particularly special because of the nest with eggs.
I haven't tried to find any further info on this yet. Do you know if there are some identifiable features of the male and female birds so I can tell who is sitting on the nest? Also, is there some idea of when the eggs may hatch?
the male is the one with
a remote under one wing and a cold beer under the other
(NT) ROFL & PIMP...That's just toooo funnie, Jonah.
(NT) Well, aren't you just toooooo funny ;)
Marcia...I had exactly the same thought, and...
...I couldn't even tell if the mates had switched when I wasn't watching. The Eagle on the nest got up and flew away one time and the mate may have assumed the position about a minute later, but I could not tell any difference between them if they did in fact switch. So to answer your question, I have not a clue...LOL
(NT) OK Marcia...will do.....LOL
...and by the way, Marcia, I think...
...the Eagles closed the curtains on the nursery this morning. It's 8AM local here right now and it's dark where they are...well, wait a second...where is British Columbia?(BC)...is that on the West coast of Canada. If so, it'd be 2 hours earlier there. I had the idea it was in the East...oh well.
After years of effort...
.... in my state, the eagle is back!
About a month ago, a neighbor said that he had seen a couple soaring over the river early mornings.
So, I watched for a couple of mornings, and sure enough, there they were. But only that one morning.
I had never seen an eagle until I visited a place in New Mexico that cares for injured wild life, and one was there. What a beatiful creature!
No wonder it was chosen as our national emblem !!!

You Jack ....
... must be a holier-than-thou prude to even suggest the Sharon Stone post involved less than wholesome content!!
I'm not quite sure when it became acceptable for members to attack other members for expressing opinions opposite of the "whatever feels good goes" POV, but it sure flew in that thread. I remain flabbergasted that there wasn't uninimity of opinion in opposition to the thoughts and actions of Stone discussed in that thread.
(NT) i'm sure "thank you Jack" would have sufficed!!
And then again..........
''... must be a holier-than-thou prude"
Gee Evie, you must have missed his filthy post that was deleted in the Stone thread.
why me lord, why me? ....:-(
Windows Media Player Error Message Help
You've encountered error message C00D2F06 while using Windows Media Player. We are investigating the cause of this error. We will post more information about this error when it becomes available.
Jonah, I have WMP v. 10.00.00.3990 and...
I had to do nothing to get it to play. Do you have another player? I copied and pasted the URL into Winamp, v. 188.8.131.527 ...<Play a URL> choice and it also played, but not quite as sharp as WMP. I didn't try Quicktime or Realplayer, but if they have a video component, it should play there as well. I first tried to play this last night and it didn't come up. And then I figgered out it was night...Duh...LOL...no wonder it didn't come up. Actually, it was up, there just wasn't any light. Now I do have broadband and that may have something to do with it playing or not.
Try to get it going and let us know what it took to get it going or what ever you tried and it didn't get going. Hope this helps
