I agree gemini2kd: It is in poor taste for someone to come on this site and compliment people from another site. Especially because that is the site that Doug and Sheila had the problem with. Poor taste. That being said, let us not fall into their program of debates. Lets rise above it and enjoy this site and all it has to offer. The team on this site is the best! No debates here and no drama. Love it! And I will thank everyone on this site for such a wonderful welcome.. aka : Darward

Good morning Hornby! wave

Hey ig, Terry, Kathyj and llefty! :hello:

Terry is correct...we should be thankful for any organization that allowed us to watch the Hornby nest, past, present, or future.

This will not turn into a debate. With that being said, any more discussion of this subject will be deleted.

Good morning, everyone!

Like Terry and nightowl, I'm thankful to all who have worked to bring us a look into the lives of these wonderful eagles over the years - and personally, I think there are far too few compliments and words of praise in the world, and hate to limit them - but nightowl is absolutely correct. As stated in the first post, this thread is for discussion of what's happening in and around the nest, relating to the eagles.

Thank you, and happy eagle watching!

Hi All!

With all the discussion of the possible date of October 20 for the eagles to be back on the nest nestorating.....if they are late we will have to just go tell them to get to work? Just a funny thought that made me chuckle.

I can see it now....early October 20 thousands of eyes watching carefully for the first stick brought by Pa and then moved by Ma and so it begins, continues and will be. Hooray for Hornby Ma and Pa - so delightful.

Choose joy.......
Since Sept 2009.

I have to laugh too, but we will all be here on Oct 20th telling Mom and Dad that they need to get to work!!:cheerguy: We'll cheer them on BUT they have their timetable and is much better than ours.

Patience will be required ---on our part as they do what they do, and when, instinctively. Sitting eagleSitting eagleWub

It's great to see everybody coming back for the new season! I'm trying to be patient while I wait for Mom and Dad Hornby to come back to the nest, but think I used it all up waiting for them to come back from the salmon run. :dunno:

Looking out this morning, one gull was furiously chasing another. It was trying to steal food from the first one's bill. Soon more and more gulls entered the chase until the food was dropped into the sea. A second gull grabbed it and was immediately mobbed. Then enter Mom and Dad Hornby. Trumpets. Doo de doo! And they carried the food to the Leaning Tree and ate it all up. A day in the life of an eagle.
