Mum has been standing so still; but calling frequently since i went on the 'Chat almost 20 minutes ago. I thought maybe the sound was on but cam frozen.  :eclol

March 19: Mum at 10:52 a.m. and still in same position as I post.  My bet is on Mar. 25 for 'Egg' day.

Now THAT is an incredible picture, Nancy!

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9X0HJIam0-E" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9X0HJIam0-E</a>

I had a heck of a time putting together this video. After converting from .flv to .wmv, the video was pixelated and the audio disappeared. I used several programs to extract the audio and then add it back, trying to get everything coordinated. I had to eat a whole bar of Lindt bittersweet chocolate in order to get through this project. I hope you enjoy it (the video, not the chocolate). There's no more chocolate. I ate it, remember?   :mconfused

Thanks, beans, another lucky hit of the screencapture key.

Nice video!  But (sorry to get off topic) - are you not using Replay Video Capture to record? Mine save as WMV - no angst (but no excuse to eat chocolate, either)

Yes, I am using Replay to record.  In this case, it would not convert the video to .wmv.  The converter kept quitting, even after rebooting.  I think the problem was too many "circles of doom" whilst I was recording.  My laptop is less than a year old, so that makes it new.  And I have a speedy cable connection.  This doesn't happen very often, but it does happen with WildEarth tv.

Nancy, I love the light in your photo of Dad flying in. What a quick 'snap-it' finger you have.

beans, your video as great, the calls are so clear.  I love the well splayed white tail feathers.

Well done ladies and many thanks.   :ecsmile

The video originates as H.264. You might have better luck using MPEG instead of WMV?

I can't read the Chat and until the past 8 days have seldom tuned into the nest when someone is at home. However I do keep an eye on the Research Obs.  A wonderful job being done there.

What do the following terms mean? :

1. ‘scootch’ - as in wriggles / nestles down in the nest bowl??

2. 'cachunk' - as a noise / call made back to mate ?

3. 'BRH' stands for blue roofed house ?

Many thanks. Guess the first two when definition complete should be added to the 'Diction-aerie' ?

Many thanks - BBE

BRINGING GRASS TO NEST 

I feel that grass must be brought to the nest before any eggs are laid.  It would be interesting to know if this is done by the male or the female or both.  Please watch for this in the next few days.

They've been bringing branches to the nest, which you can see with the close-up cam.  When the needles fall off these branches, do the eagles remove the branches and leave the dry needles there to cushion the eggs and chicks?
