Every Tuesday John Latimer gathers all the phenology comments and questions sent along by listeners and area school children and we share their observations and queries with the world. This week was a busy one around the listening area. We heard from more schools than we have in a long time and there is so much spring action going on out in mother nature that the reports were full of fantastic findings! Hooded mergansers, pileated woodpeckers, spring peepers, painted turtles beavers, speckled alder buds and even a bear that turned out to be a squirrel are just a sampling of all the great reports that came our way this week!
A big thank you to the Sofia and Gracie from Blackduck High School, Ms. Tietge's class from North Shore Community School, Ms. Robbie's class from Pine-River Backus School, Mr. Corbett's class from Cayuna School, Mr. Holmes' group from Roosevelt Elementary in Virginia, MN, Mrs. Magner's Hill City 2nd Graders, Mr. Lindner's students from Robert J. Elkington Middle School in Grand Rapids, and the kids from Mr. Pearson's third grade classroom in Baudette! You are all such great assets to the phenology show! Stay observant and keep us posted!
