Thank you Mr John....sure hope sky is ok...the others seem fine...

Mavis

Oh dear...still no Sky. Everyone seems to be pointed toward home. Star heading south...Mercury coming north and the other two staying close to home.

Appreciate the update....I always do.

Carol C

The kids are all close to home!! I wish Sky would check in. Maybe his transmitter has broke.

Mavis

I posted about the same time JC posted...so it ended up after her "New Thread" post. Am bringing it forward:

A shame you did not collect beads for that show, Joyce!! I can't get one on you...you've been there/done that!! It does sound like a fun trip. I think Carol wins the prize with her trip to the Swiss glacier. I rode on the back of a Gold Wing (motorcycle) through the Durango/Silverton/Telluride areas...just out of this world beautiful. I got headache going across Red Mountain in the RV...it was so high up.

JC, Judy told me about Kugel. I found a recipe and going to try it. It sounds a lot like that rice pudding I make. I think I will cut this recipe in half...maybe use 1/2 sour cream and 1/2 heavy whipping cream instead of all sour cream.

I have not even seen little birds at the nest today. Nothing moving except the leaves and an occasional barge!

Katy

What is up with Sky's tracker? Seems he has been playing hide & seek with a signal since he fledged. Makes me wonder if his tracker might be flawed.
I don't know, perhaps he thinks he's an Owl, only travels at night.
Thanks for the Update.

JC

Oops Sorry Mavis that one was out of your control you were typing while I was posting..not a problem I simply added another notice...Kugel sounds good...wonder about carbs in egg noodles versus rice...
Liberty and Justice should be coming soon...seems like sundown is the fly in time...

Chris

We know now that the juvies flying around the area were not our juvies.

Cellular service in Canada with US gadgets is tricky for most travelers in populated areas. I bet Sky is working a stream in the wilderness. The animals he must see while he perches high in the trees must be awesome for him to see like moose, elk, big deer, bears, wolves, coyotes... from what I have seen on-line those bears waste a lot of the fish they get and I bet he loves the leftovers. When it gets cold he will head south.

JC

Pretty sunset on the nest..the swing branch has taken on an orange hue...no Eagles yet...

Katy

I haven't been in Canada since 1995, so will have to take your word for it.

Predicting 8:30ish nest time, for L & J to show up.

Katy

Large bird again skimmed the river, looked like an Eagle fishing.

Katy

Touchdown TTV. Another on Nv.

JC

Eagle did a quick landing in nest then flew to old nest...

JC

One in nest now

Katy

Was that the same Eagle?
Saw one fly past old nest as one landed on it.

JC

Think so Katy now on L branch...but looking toward the sky...maybe the other one is near by...

JC

Awful amount of bugs flying around too...

Katy

I saw the one land on TTV, AND the other on NV. Sure it was two Eagles.
No matter, happy to to see them.
Quite the gnat fest on TTV. Or are they Skeeter's?

JC

Your probably right Katy hard to follow on Ipad with gray outs and going from screen to screen..it is up on the higher branch now behind the leaves...

Judith H

Nest View, we have two.

Katy

Both L & J on the L branch, 8:25pm nest time.

JC

Your spot on Katy...you too Judy...

Chris

Katy you called the time they would show up. Good one.

Mavis

Not so fast on the gps thing. How far can an eaglet fly in 15 minutes?? That is how long it is between pings! Just food for thought. I admit, the chances the kid was one of ours is not that good...but then again...we don't raise ordinary kids at Arconic! 😂

Katy, I am like you...seems like Sky has always had trouble with low battery. His feathers may hinder the solar panel from working to full capacity. I don't know about that stuff. He has never gone this long without checking in. I just keep hoping. I never had trouble with my cell phone in Canada...but that's been probably 8 years ago. I could be wrong, but didn't it say somewhere that they had an agreement of some kind with most providers to transmit the signal? Canada may be a whole different ballgame, though. I knew that boy shouldn't go across the border. He made it past the first crucial year so the odds are in his favor of being ok. I sure would like to see that ping, though.

Still no sign of L or J...unless Katy's sighting over the water was one of them.

JC...I don't have a clue about the carbs...I bet the noodles have more. Good question.

Been a long day...calling it a night. Hope you all enjoy a good weekend.

Katy

Anyone watch Live PD ?
Now that sunset is at the nest think I'll watch it.
