Every Tuesday we hear from students across Minnesota as they send us their weekly Phenology Reports. Included in this week's reports are the following comments from our intrepid nature reporters:
"Hannah reports that at her country house there’s a little frozen over pond. Last week she lay on the clear ice for an hour looking at little fish swimming, rocks, and green plants waving in the water. She says it was like looking through glass into a giant aquarium."
"Angelina observed a snowshoe hare at her grandma’s and it was almost all white in color."
"Sean moved here from Florida a month ago and he didn’t believe until now that ice can form on the INSIDE of a window."
