Live LoonCam on Lake Vermilion


The Vermilion Lake Association of northern Minnesota has been livestreaming an image from a loon nesting site since 2021 during the months of May and June. The loons have had encounters with bald eagles, a beaver and other critters as they try to protect their nest area on a small peninsula of Lake Vermilion. Two chicks were hatched in each of the first two years. The lake is located about an hour and a half north of Duluth and stretches from Cook to Tower-Soudan, Minnesota.
