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.

Hi Kasey – I look forward to this nest each year – I think I will be away when they hatch. We go to Alaska next week.
