GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn.-- Did you know the average life span of a loon is 30 years? Loons grow 2-3 feet in length. And how about this one... loons can dive more than 200 feet below the surface of the water.
Minnesota's favorite state bird will be front and center this spring as Ron Schara Productions again launches its famous "Loon Cam". The Loon Cam was launched the spring of 2008 and was an immediate success. The cam had a half a million views for a thirty day period, and it's become one of the most watched wildlife webcams in the country.
This morning Larry Backlund, "Minnesota Bound's" premier Loon expert, stopped by to tell us more.
You can check out the live Loon Cam now through June at www.mnbound.com or www.kare11.com (scroll down to the bottom of the home page and click on the loon icon).
