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.

Nice to see the camera has been moved so we have a clearer view. They have a nicely secluded nest.

I need to get off the computer now because my DD-Lauren is driving home to Charlotte, NC for a few days (she lives in MD) ♥ She has been staying with friends in Raleigh, NC for a few days so Lauren only had a few hours drive today. I will be treating her to lunch at her favorite restaurant silly

I did not imagine that the ‘island’ was so big. It’s a safer place than I thought looking from the other side

📌 May28 Two Loon eggs visible
Published on May 28, 2018 by Loon Preservation committee

With an obstructed view, it is difficult to see the loon eggs in the nest. However, during this egg roll, one egg can be seen unmoved (look for the brown egg with black spots) while the other one is rolled. The middle of the clip is slowed down to half speed, to help see what is going on.
