Shelley 04/13/04 06:32 pm Yikes! It's 6:28 pm as I watch poor Betty stoically sit on her eggs. She's hanging on for dear life. It looks like the entire nest could go flying at any moment. She keeps shaking her head and I, myself, am getting a bit dizzy, watching the whole thing rocking back and forth.

BTW, that's some *puddle* down below, on the left. Is that the river and I've just never noticed it there before? I always kind-of saw the background as trees, never noticed the water as prominently as now.

I just want to put up an umbrella! Why do they nest out in the open like that? Haven't they learned anything about weather over millions of years? Or, as my mom would say, don't they know enough to come in out of the rain??!
Marie 04/13/04 06:55 pm Indeed that is some WIND storm... I see the same rocking and rolling of the nest picture...you make me laugh with your postings Shelly... you have a great sense of humour That puddle I noticed at 6am today. I too never had seen it before. I would imagine it was from the flood gates that opened by all accounts in your neck of the woods last night. Hopefully Betty had a chance to dry out during the day even if it meant flying with wings and feathers blowing in the wind
Mickey 04/13/04 07:24 pm I noticed the "road" this year. I also noticed what looked like tire tracks in the "road". Last year they showed a picture of people laying the cable for this adventure and there was a truck.Maybe the same thing had to be done this winter. The nest is in marshland and we`ve had over 3" of rain in the past 24 hours. Puddles are everywhere and if theres a high tide it might flood more. I didnt notice it last year because the spring growth was in full bloom when I started watching in May.In another month we wont see it :)
