Live Loon Nest Cam

The nest is on a floating platform at a lake in Central Minnesota. This family of loons have been nesting here for over 10 years. This camera also has night vision of which the birds can't see. The light(infrared) can only be picked up by the camera. Nesting season begins in late April to early May with hatches being about 27 days later. Larry Backlund(camera owner) is a loon expert and shares his insight about the nest from his blog at Minnesota Bound.

2nd cam - Loon Preservation Committee. If Nesting starts here this cam will be moved to a page of it's own.

hi, Didi. I am in UTC+1. But that doesn’t matter at all as long as we know that the chat time and the time on the screen is not the same. One hour less in chat… cool laugh

Sorry to see the MN loons won’t be this year but happy SPO brought the New Hampshire cam on. Been watching that one for a while. I love watching the turtles on the rock!

Good morning loon lovers…thank you @HNF for adding this cam..I have been watching this one for a couple years. It’s too bad about the loon cam in MN this year.
