Fly high . . . I will be here waiting
Found Poem Spring 2020
hello nonbot chatters
Is this entire chat room some sort of
yooooo I randomly clicked this. this is dope
This isn't live is it?
what is this live stream, I found it under DOING SCHOOL WORK and put the filter as live, this is the
result. not complaining though.
My teacher shows me this in class
my second grade grand daughter told us about these two eagles her class watches
My kindergarten class is watching and we love Jackie and Shadow.
My students and I are so intrigued.
I am watching this in my math class
My junior high school
patrons at the library watching!
myself two dogs two kids
such an awesome sight to watch. thanks.
When my grandson comes over the first thing he wants to do is check the Eagles. He is 2
This view is very calming in a very stressful work environment.
Best thing on to watch.
I wait every morning for the wake up chortles All year long.
The tree creaking reminds me of the swing on my grandparents porch.
We have had this live feed up in our office for over a year now
My class had field day today and they were having serious J&S withdrawal!
I've been on the road since 6am. I was thinking about them the whole time
I can't go more than a few hours without checking on them.
I have it streaming on my phone during my entire work day, and when my boss isn't here (which is most of the time) I have the volume at max so I can hear the beautiful relaxing sounds
I love them
I love to have this on when I’m going to sleep so soothing.
Very peaceful watching them and exciting at the same time.
I get completely mesmerized just sitting and watching both of them. Then I remember I have to snap out of it for a few moments to actually get something done!
I want to come back as a bald eagle. Very little contact with people. Luv it.
omg what majestic beauties these amazing animals are
Bald eagles are awesome.
I come here to watch the eagles and zen myself out when the real world is just to much.
I am sitting here alone at the computer with a beer and just love this moment.. but I don't feel alone.
Something interesting happened here...I have the channel on all day, with the volume on and my
windows open. I now have crows gathering on my back lawn by the open window!
I played a video on the FOBBV site today that had Jackie vocalizing and a crow responded to it
my parrots get loud if I dont bring them into the computer room to watch the eagles, they Love Them
How old are the eggs now?
Is there a possibility that the eggs had chicks that they could not break open the shell and died inside the egg?
Are the eggs still there?
they still havent abandoned the eggs? I havent watched in awhile..isnt this unusual ?
Are there any plans to remove the eggs in order to determine what went wrong ?
I can’t wait to see those ADORABLE eggs hatch, we’ve waited a long time to see those babies hatch
How many days have they been incubating those eggs
will the eggs ever hatch
did the eggs hatch?
Wish the eggs would hatch!
Are their eggs still viable if not why?
how long will it take for the eagles to realize that the eggs aren't viable?
Do the eagles know that the egg will not hatch?
were the babies born today?
just how long do the eggs stay eggs. Will they crumble after time
sadly the eggs will not hatch
we will not have little bobbleheads
What’d I miss ? I had to eat breakfast.
Recap: 08:35 J out; 08:36 J in; 08:41 S in, J out; ➡S incubates
does anyone else notice that shadows beak is injured ?
dont see anything wrong with his beak
yes That is what I saw I know I saw something,when I enlarged but we could be wrong
Larry the spider
Fiona the San Bernardino Flying Squirrel
Acorn Woodpecker aka. Clown Face aka. Squeaky Toy
Was not expecting that.
did she sneeze just now?
Is Cookie’s band still in the nest?
Did they abandon the nest ?
is it Jackie or shadow ?
how do you tell them apart?
how much do you think their nest weighs?
if S and J leave the nest would different Eagles take it?
has there been any sightings of simba?
where has Jackie gone
How long has shadow been nesting
whats a ps?
that is a huge stick
Who is Simba?
Our Simba was such an obnoxious, entitled, strong willed boy that he kept us entertained 24/7 and we loved him.
Massively, irrevocably spoiled forever by Simba
There is beautiful Jackie
It be mom I think
Shadow sits on eggs for 7 hours!
my heart breaks for them
how sad she looks
Annie I love sex click here [message deleted]
here we go
Bam! bam! Bam the bots. Mod comes in with a sledge hammer.
kudos big time for all your bot slapping !
This is 1 time that Spam and eggs do not go together
I think he & intruder did a death spiral & they got flung into trees; that's where he got hit crashing into them. All speculation on my part tho
I saw that too
that's my thought.
couldnt agree more
I think so too.
please don't start rumors we have no idea what happened he is just fine
Speculation with such detail
plus when people speculate people run with it
it starts with I saw something by someone by I don't remember etc. Right?
he is wondering
she is feeling
maybe he saw
How do we, as humans, know what they're 'feeling' or why they do anything that they do?
Forgive me for thinking.
since there is not reference for that statement, let’s just drop it. Thanks
Let’s get back to our regularly scheduled program! Thank you!
The purpose of the eagle cams is to bring awareness to all bald eagles not just BB eagles. Please don't delete eagle information
Final warning, Please stay on the topic of Big Bear Eagle family and the surrounding ecosystem, please stay on topic
no way of knowing
no way to answer that.
we will have to wait and see what they do
Watching nature is the best instructive experience.
I have learned so much about eagles. I love them even more and will financially support eagle causes in the future.
Humans, watch this and learn.
Always something inspiring here.
I can't think of anything more serene and beautiful than watching an eagle watch a california sunset on a lake.
I love hearing the coyotes at night too. So peacefull
I really do not understand what these two have planned but I will be here to find out
Well, if I'm reincarnated as an Eagle I know who I want for my parents.
the mods are here to give us the right info
Always learning new things.
So cool, thanks for that
Ty for providing that info
never knew that!
I see. tyvm.
Thanks to you moderators.
Thanx to all!
thank you Mods and everyone-I've learned a lot about eagles but mostly I've learned to just be an
Our mod's are the best. They put up with a lot and understand all our repeat concerns.
omg i could never be a mod
we're like children asking, "are we there yet?”
thank you for all the updates these eagles are amazing I am so happy to have found them.
Your knowledge is showing us many different aspects of the BE life. a big learning lesson for all of us…Thank you. And thank you for being a mod.
Thanks to you, too, for being such an integral part of this nest and of our education. You have to wear a lot of hats as a mod: teacher, psychologist, air traffic controller…
well I got TONS of school work to finish up, might toon in later, love the stream though!
OK,got to go now, moms calling!!!!!!
I have been here a few times hard to keep up with kids and work
housework won't do itself
I don't know what the heck I did before I found this cam. I don't want to do anything else now
was so broken hearted and my 2 yr old grandson kept saying eagles fly,eagles fly bye eagles
about 30 days past the typical 35 days of incubation. Wow J & S gave twice the effort.
heartbreaking & beautiful at the same time
glad and sad
I guess it just brings us a moment closer to next season's excitement.
Wow. The circle of life is rough
Sad day, but knew it was coming. Looking forward to the next generation.
Longer they stay with the eggs, longer we get to watch them
As sad as I have been about watching J & S incubate and then leaving the eggs behind, I remind myself that nature has been getting along without us for millions of years.
J & S are such great parents. Shadow was so diligent at turning the eggs last year that he turned Cookie and Simba a time or two even after they had hatched.
Such a treat to be able to observe these amazing birds. Even watching them sleep is mesmerizing.
The beauty of what we have witnessed is more than the eagles but a lesson in life. It has been humbling and inspiring. Many things learned here should be modeled in human behavior and life.
Dear J n S, I thought you were going to teach me about parenting or maybe my lesson would be about the joy and trials of growing up a B.E. Instead, it was a much needed lesson on shared grief. Thanks.
Today is not the end, but the beginning of their future
We must stay tucked on a perch and see what happens
thanks to all the mods it's been amazing. I'm not leaving I will continue to watch day in and day out. I will be excited for any showings of Jackie and Shadow those eagles have won my heart
I’ve been watching for a month. Now I have to watch next year! I fell for these two!
this is relaxing to me, nature rules here, I can put a lot of trust in that.
I have had this nest on in the living room almost continuously since the days of Stormy, it's kind of like my living live window, some people have aquariums to look at, I have this
It's on my bedroom TV right now too and that's where they will remain.
The nest will be here as well as some of us. I remember back when J & S weren't coming around yet, there was 9 of us watching and chatting. We had fun and still learned.
Thank you Mods for your time, information and PATIENCE keeping us informed with pictures and videos. Just thanks for such wonderful chat
Mods: Thank you. 70 years old. I was the geek looking through encyclopedias. Online info has increased my education 100 fold. Thank you for all the loving work you do. Will always be grateful.
Sweet dreams beautiful Jackie and thank all the mods for their help.
for being patient, answering questions and being so knowledgeable.
and to you too
We will see them again. I will be here waiting.
Holy moly we have an eagle!
Was just about to comment how melancholy it was to see the empty nest with just the eggs...then BAM! Instant eagle!
I am pretty sure I have stopped breathing. Amazing.
Bird watching takes a lot of patience. I need more coffee.
having a super rough day at work and this seriously just cheered me right up.
hard to let go of these two lovies
Who would've thunk they'd be up for an encore sheeesh
No wonder Simba turned out to be a hyperactive jet fuelled drama king with parents like these 2 hard as steel raptors
The way things are going today, I wont be surprised too if Simba comes squeeing his way back in for a seat too, why not, everyone else is here
Do we have a Pip?? Just kiddin. Glad to see they are moving on.
can somebody tell me what the deal is I came home and they're sitting on the eggs again
They heard you were coming so they came back, just for you
What if J&S know about the camera and know about us and they are just messing with us. They're meeting in another tree and planning their next move to confound us.
How long was Jackie gone this time? And she bought back a hat ??
Well, realistically, size wise it's perfect for setting over the eggs so they can keep building...
I am thinking the reason Jackie was out all night is she was weaving the straw together for her hat.
what is this "hat" business?
gonna have to start a gofundme for @Dutch's replacement hat
I think I found the hat on amazon called “men’s beachcomber straw hat Hawaiian beach accessory” it definitely looks like it!
Now all the nest needs are some tiki torches and a pupu platter.
Shadow's coming soon with the tiki torches!
Next thing will be a hammock between the V branches with umbrella drinks.
Fiona the flying squirrel is arriving soon with the mix nut entree and cocktails!
Recap: 08:44 Raven in, partially consumes the eggs; Only yolk is visible; 08:54 S in, inspects the eggs; 08:54 S out, loses the hat
raven. So smart and cautious.
The ravens are scared. You mess with the eagle you get the claw
the eggs went as nourishment to a Raven. The eagles are free now.
S&J fly high. Love you
My husband and I just stood here with our hands over our mouths and silent.
I yelled “oh no!” Woke up baby.
I really did not want to see this but glad I was present.
I'm kinda glad I was here to see it live, and at least close that chapter.
Very fascinating to witness their behavior before, during and post eggs. I'm glued to this today.
That raven was very cautious to make sure the eagles weren't around first.
Raven is just living its life same as Jackie and Shadow who can now move on and take us with them
Nothing died here today,
Thanks to all who made this happen for us to watch. Sux we didn’t get to see baby eagles but it was still an adventure
Thanks for sharing this awesome adventure!
heartbreaking yet necessary. What an awesome opportunity to see nature live. Thank you to everyone involved.
Jackie and Shadow are now released to go on to the next part of their lives.
I can't believe we get to witness this cycle of nature. So incredible.
absolutely fascinating. so privileged to see all of this.
this isn't a sad day. This is what we've hoped for so that there is a defining end to this chapter and the beginning of the next for J & S
Those eggs have now provided protein for a another wild thing.
Maybe the Raven was just there to transport the soul.
Must remember that the Ravens have a job to do as well. Did we mourn for the fish families when J&S brought a fish to the nest? Nature can seem cruel to us…Circle of life right in front of us.
I also see the Crows also have a job to do, they are the clean up crew. The squirrels are next after the Crows.
Nothing goes to waste.
Oh no, it's stealing the hat!
Oh surely it won't take the hat
not the Hat!
OMG, the hat! I'm laughing AND crying.
I was okay with the eggs but not the hat. Leave the hat!
We got a real problem here - Where are we gonna get another hat like that?
Fiona is like a housekeeper. She always shows up around the same time.
I’m sure Fiona has already rescued the hat. She seems resourceful that way.
It’s like she can’t believe Jackie isn’t there. Wheee. I get the nest to myself.
Looks like Looney Tunes
Fiona couldn't get her little arms around the eggs to lift them up.
oh what are these maybe if I move this way no that way oh gotta go big bird slap coming
Amazing! We are seeing this live, folks!
And now...we get to see what happens next. Nature at work
All part of nature as sad is it may be, they can move on now
Did Shadow fly off with the "hat" stuck to his talons?
That was so “Shadow"
You just can't make this stuff up, Shadow totally hijacks the whole mood, Love these guys
The hat...what a fitting end to it.
I'm a children's minister & the children are in awe w/ J&S. I show the live cam on our big screen before service starts & have been able to turn this experience into a great lesson. The nest cam inspired me and I hope to inspire these children especially in a confusing world we live in. I give huge props to
FOBBV for this amazing experience. Faith in the Eagles :o)
This nest cam is an interesting metaphor for me - sometimes Nature takes a wide swing into what we feel to be negative territory, but Nature will persevere and will find normal balance once again.
just what I needed to ease worry and remind me of what is important in my life. Nature is a wonderful reminder of those things.
We could all learn something from the wonderful eagles and apply it in our daily lives
If you have a problem with life today just think what would Jackie and Shadow do to rectify this !! Maybe bury it in fluff !! Maybe but a new hat !! Maybe bring your gal a stick !! Or just fly away
I am delighted to be keeping our mods, even with a reduced schedule. They are an absolute National Treasure - thank you one and all.
Thanks so much for all you've done and all you do to keep us informed and educated. You've been an indispensable part of this experience.
All mods go to Heaven and become eagles.
that was a nice flyby
Their chortles sound so beautiful! I know they’re happy! I’m still hearing them from a distance . . .
