This is the live web cam shot of my backyard on Intermediate Lake Road in Central Lake.    In winter I have a snow depth gauge installed.  To view road conditions, you can click the Bellaire Street Cam, Eastport Road Cam, and Streaming Webcams buttons on the right.  The picture is updated every ten seconds during daylight hours until I turn the camera off around sunset.  You can email me with any questions or comments.

(8/13/2020)  We're still expecting dry conditions until at least Saturday night, when there's a chance of light showers.
(6/8/2020)  Loon observer Dick West reports that we now have three families with chicks on the southern part of the lake.  He reminds us to keep our distance and back away further if the birds show any signs of distress, such as putting their head down while sitting on the nest.  Dave Egert captured a picture of one of the families.  Click on the thumbnail to enlarge.

(4/27/2020)  Tom and Pat Berry report that a bear estimated to weigh 450-500 pounds crushed their deer fence and strolled across their lakeside lawn, located just south of Mohrmann Park, at 2:04 AM on April 24th.  The Berrys' neighbor John Truckey says that the bear has been pulling down their feeders, so John has to take them in at night.  Click on the thumbnail to play the 20-second video.

(5/4/2020)  When my suet feeder ran out, this Pileated Woodpecker banged on my window to remind me.  Click on the thumbnail to enlarge.
