Eaglecrest Cam 5
If you've ever wanted to watch Canada geese hatch, today is your lucky day! First pip was reported at Eaglecrest yesterday in Fred and Wilma's nest.

On Easter the snow stopped falling and the weather warms up. This tiny Loon peeks out from mother's warm feathers and goes for a short swim. After a few minutes he returns.

WOW..I'm really behind here...

I just loved watching the ducklings jump..did one land on mom? LOL...so cute how mom would swim over to each one when they landed...and lucky ducklings...getting to land in water...

Of course, the loon baby is just precious...and I've been watching the albatross on and off since it hatched...

thanks for the great vids!!! they reminded me of simpler times when there weren't a cazillion falcon and eagle cams to keep up with!!!...and osprey and kestrels and...and...and...reminds me that I am very behind with all the owls too!!!

All those little Mergansers leaping from the nestbox was a terrific capture! Then mom swims away. I wonder how she knows that all of them have jumped, unless she can count....

Larry's Loon blog :) and
Minnesota Bound Loon Cam (will post asap when cam goes live)

http://mnbound.com/larrys-loon-blog/

April 27, 2014

The nest is in the water! :egg20:

And hopefully the camera will be able to go live soon. :egg19:

A post from Larry several years ago-he is sooooooo good!!
~The biggest miracle of all is how the loons find their way back to the very same lake! All without AAA TripTics, maps or GPS.
We think we are so smart but they have had this figured out for thousands of years without any help from us.
Once again I choose to view it as one of countless miracles that are placed all around us that
we seldom take time to stop and look and learn and consider.~

The ducklings are getting kind of rowdy and the cam looking at the outside of the box is now on. I wonder if they will go in the middle of the night. Probably after I am tucked in bed.
