Thinking of different genres. . .

Mythology: Athena and Zeus

Love story: Bogie and Bacall

Looking forward to lots of other suggestions.

Vivian and I are on the same wave lengths. I was gonna suggest Zeus and Leto, who was the mother of Apollon and Artenis. So the babies could be Artie and Apolina. I even was thinking of Kate and Spencer, Vivian. More to come. MG, when is our last day to suggest names??

Farrah and Michael...John and Yoko, Fred and Ethal, Brad and Angie,Adam and Eve...Bing and Dixie,Dick and Jane...LOL, I am getting worse instead of better.

Wish I didn't have to work so I could have made your get together. Maybe next year:-)

I thought we could have the cutoff time at the end of July so by the first week of August we could pick two names from the list of submissions.

Well, interestingly, I have been calling the momma osprey Sandy since the early spring when I got hooked on osprey-cam! The papa however has not been so fortunate in getting a name from me, but my daughter suggested Squidward! Love the suggestions!

Anthony and Cleopatra (Tony and Cleo for short!)

Just had my computer unvirussed so hopefully I can start getting blogs again. Haven't seen one since the 26th!

Is that mama osprey on the lonely nest this morning. Pretty much standing in the same spot for quite some time. Not knowing what to do with herself? Or standing guard?

The female is probably just safe guarding the nest.

A NAME THAT SOUNDS STRONG AND DEDICATED FOR OUR PAPA

SAMPSON

FOR MAMA A NAME THAT IS CARING AND LOVING

Glad you all had such a good time with your get-together. I was there in spirit!

Anxious to hear your theories on the death of little DS.

Again - suggest you all watch the cam at Shandy Point, NC - chicks are about to fledge. Superb views.

Don't know about Delilah. She betrayed Sampson, and she did it for money. Maybe there is another Delilah who was caring and loving?

Ospie and Harriet?? LOL

It is interesting that both GJ and MG continue to return to the nest. I know it is because they are hungry and have not yet gotten the hang of fishing. But it is good to see them continue to return. Also, a different bird, but Doris and I saw 4 Roseate Spoonbills here in Moss Creek. They are very rare this far north. They were a beautiful pink and I had never seen one.

One lonely young osprey on the nest this afternoon. This one looks like s/he is trying to decide what to do next. It's nice to see some activity. Maybe they are trying to wean us off gradually. A couple of days of off-and-on storms here. I wonder what they do to stay dry.

The osprey nest cam site in Kentucky has two new videos of the young ospreys getting their wings ready for flight. Really cute videos.

I hope the url comes through OK. It might be cut off, but ends in .html

DeeDee, Your osprey pictures are gorgeous! They dramatically show off the beauty of the bird. Thanks for sharing your web site with us.

The Kentucky site has a short video of one of the young ospreys taking his first flight and returning. It is a riot--beginning to end!

Carol said...

DeeDee, how did you ever get those beautiful shots? Do you sell prints? If so, please let us know your web site. Beautiful!!!

Boy, am I feeling blue. Of the four osprey web cams I've been watching, the young in three of the nests have fledged and are not there very often. At least the chicks at the Woods Hole site have 3 or 4 more weeks to go.

Carol said...

Vivian, empty nest syndrome has hit you hard! lol

Anonymous said...

You are so right, Carol. I loved watching the birds hatch and grow into beautiful creatures. And the nurturing that the adults give their young is awesome. Oh well, we only have a 7-month wait to watch again?

Vivian

Realist said...

Vivian and Carol -

FYI: One chick hasn't fledged yet in Scotland, both chicks fledged today in Shandy Point, NC. Thanks goodness for Woods Hole, eh? I too am suffering from empty nest syndrome.

Too bad Conn. Audubon was never able to get cam up and running. Last year was great viewing ...with 4 chicks all of whom fledged. Keep in mind for next season.

Do stay in touch!!

Don't know how much longer until the Hilton Head ospreys leave for their winter journey. Or how much longer we have to blog here. Perhaps our Moderator will let us know.

Hi...
have you decided on the names?

Thanks, in advance :-)

Ah, there is one of our beautiful young ospreys on the nest this morning. Probably looking south and pondering his/her trip.

Oh no! I just looked on the Woods Hole web cam and saw one of the young ospreys flapping his wings with great gusto. That can only mean one thing. . .they will be fledging (all too) soon. Well, it is nice to see things progressing like they should.
