Popular ‘Minnesota Bound’ Camera Canceled For 2021
You don't have to be loony to enjoy watching loons. The Minnesota state bird is one that brings about great pride and a grin to many Minnesota faces when one graces you with their presence. Sadly for many Minnesotans that opportunity only happens via the Minnesota Bound Loon Cam, and for the 2nd year in a row that camera will not be turned on.
According to a post to the Minnesota Bound Live Loon Cam Facebook page, the live camera for this year won't be operating again. The post states:
While a reason is not stated as to why the live loon camera is not operating, I am going to go out on a limb and think that COVID-19 has something to do with it. Larry Backlund from Central Minnesota is the man behind the loon camera, according to the Minnesota Bound website.
Last year, there was no loon camera, and this year it appears the camera will be dark too.
Fans of the live loon camera reacted to the news.
