Ron Schara's Minnesota Bound Loon Cam

7 posts in this topic

I'm not sure if anyone has noticed that Minnesota Bound is a sponsor of the Women's Forum. They have a great Loon Cam set up that everyone should check out. She's sitting on a couple of eggs too! Here's the link: MN Bound Loon Cam

Also Larry's Loon Log is posted under the cam which is really neat.

Very cool Lisa - Definitly one to keep an eye on !!!

It looks like her nest is floating, it moves up and down with the water.

That's pretty cool.......I wonder what that nest is on, it does seem to move like it's floating.

That nest is typical. Consequently, loon nest disruption due to boat waves primarily is also common.

Loon nest

If you click this link it talks alittle about the loon nest. It is a man-made floating nest.

REALLY cool. Thanks Lisa for sharing that.

I have a loon nesting on my shoreline.

Pretty cool for all of us to watch her progress.

I saw a loon nest this weekend up north and unfortunately had to get closer to it than I wanted seeking cover from a storm that came in very quick. It nearly sent me for a swim. I was within maybe 100 yards or so. They look pretty cool. Looks like 4" pvc pipe base possibly filled with foam for floatation and then a platform with hay and some aquatic vegetation. The loon that was guarding the nest stayed directly between me and the nest the whole time I waited out the storm. She didn't seem to mind my presence too much, but I wasn't going any closer than I had to.

    • Dave -   I will go back to your original question and skip over everything after that.    You provided an explanation yourself.  In this case was the cross a representation of Jesus dying?  Or was it simply a representation of a soldier dying in battle.  I would say that a cross in a veteran's memorial traditionally represents the second scenario.     I would agree, to me this display is not religious.  Of course, as a Christian, I may be biased in my view.     I can't answer that for you.  However, we seem to live in a country where being offended can be considered a lifestyle.     We do have a separation of church and state.  The writers of the Federalist Papers wanted to make sure that our government did not have a government sponsored church like the Church of England.  I would not be happy with my government telling me how to worship.  So, I am happy that there is a separation of church and state. 
    • How many sleds can "we" get in that new trailer?
    • It's the interwebs. There is someone somewhere telling you what you want to hear no matter what that is.
    • Well how was the ride? I got my enclosed trailer ordered up today and will be here when I get back.
    • And who will decide what is good and what is not good for America? It seems there are opposing views for each perspective.
    • I have never heard this before and It is interesting.
    • There is also a separation of church and state. Put whatever you want on private property but keep religion out of the public arena.   Or are you also against the Texans who passed regulations making Sharia law illegal. Is it OK to have the Koran posted in a public area and to have rag heads praying to Allah in the government buildings?
