Here's a 'Cruzerism' that seems to have been left out of the Cruzinary ....
Sorry I don't know who is the uncredited first of the posters to use it but it has become part of our forum-speak:
"NESTORATION" = what we are all looking forward to come December/January when K-10 and K-26 begin their re-model in anticipation of a new clutch!

Posted by: Joanie Sep 10 2006, 02:04 PM
NESTFUL THINKING.... as in we want soooooo much to see activity in the nest that our eyes and minds play tricks on us and we see eagles and other visitors that aren't really there.

MASS NESTERIA occurs when chronic Nestful Thinking causes 2 or more forum members to simultaneously see the same illusion/mirage sometimes making claims that they see pinecones wearing 'wing-blings' while preening.

Ongoing studies are continuing to determine whether on not these psycho-social events are more prevalent when Cruzers are in a State of 'Inner Peace'.... any volunteers?

Here's a 'Cruzerism' that seems to have been left out of the Cruzinary ....
Sorry I don't know who is the uncredited first of the posters to use it but it has become part of our forum-speak:
"NESTORATION" = what we are all looking forward to come December/January when K-10 and K-26 begin their re-model in anticipation of a new clutch!

Is that when they start??? I can hardly wait to see that......

Posted by: Eagle Duo Sep 2 2007, 04:32 PM
The could start earlier.....The did a lot last year while the camera was off, but they start getting really serious in December & January.....which is why Pat & I decided to call the Nestorations part of AEATT "Getting Serious About Nestorations".
