KenCam - Central Lake, Michigan
Latitude 45° 3' 55.2" N, Longitude 85° 15' 5.9" W

This is the live web cam shot of my back yard on Intermediate Lake Road in Central Lake.  Besides the birds, you can occasionally see deer, rabbits, skunks, opossums, squirrels, and raccoons feeding on the ground.  In winter I have a snow depth gauge installed.    The picture is updated every three seconds during daylight hours until I turn the camera off around sunset.  You can email me with any questions or comments.

(9/20/14)  We received half an inch of rain this morning and should get more before the end of the weekend.  After lows in the low 40s Sunday night, we should have warm, sunny days by midweek.

(9/1/14)  Clayton Givens took this shot with his iPhone this morning.  The birds were in the "eagle tree" on the east side of the lake near the north end of the islands.  They're sitting closer to the trunk than they have in the past, so these might be a new pair.  Clayton's wife Stephanie took the loon picture.  Click to enlarge.

(8/25/14)  Our cool, relatively dry (except for a few gully-washers like this morning's 3/4 inch) summer has been good for some crops (blueberries) and not so good for others (corn).  Here's a giant sunflower in the garden of my neighbors Keith and Marcia Shahan.  Click to enlarge.  (Update 9-10-14: The Shahans' corn from their garden turned out fantastic.  I guess the corn quality depends on when you planted it.)

(8/13/14)   This was taken in the early evening as summer begins to draw to a close.  The weather has been pleasant but somewhat cool lately.  Click here to see changes over the seasons.
