Phenology

Tuesday Mornings

Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate.  John Latimer shares his phenology notes on what he has been observing this week.

Each week, our resident Phenologist John Latimer puts together a report of the subtle and not so subtle phenological changes he's noticed in the past week and he shares those observations with our listeners.  This week's report includes a full report of what's blooming right now and how this year's blooms are measuring up to the yearly average bloom dates.  Rabbits foot clover, common evening primrose, sawtooth sunflower, and early goldenrod are just a sampling of what John discusses today!

We focus on the out-of-doors every Tuesday with our Phenology Show.  In our talkback segment we share comments related to the outdoors that have come our way over the course of the week.

It's Tuesday and that means it's time to talk nature.  Each week, our resident Phenologist John Latimer puts together a report of the subtle and not so subtle changes he's noticed in the past week and he shares those observations with our listeners.  Latimer is out of town this week, so Pam Perry is pinch hitting for him.  Pam is a retired, non-game wildlife biologist with the Minneosta Department of Natural Resources.  Among other things, they talk weather, birds, frogs, turtles and deerflies in this segment.  We loved hearing from Pam today and encourage you to listen to this segment!  Do you leave a ramp in low spots like window wells around your house so little frogs can escape after they get it?  Pam does.  Do you leave peanuts out for birds?  Pam does.  Did you know it's already the start of the migratory season?  Pam talks about it.  She loves the outdoors it made her career it was a pleasure having her on the air this morning.  Nice job pinch hitting, Pam Perry!

We care deeply about the natural world around us here at KAXE-KBXE.  Every week we learn from our listeners about what they are noticing outside and every week our resident phenologist John Latimer assesses today's climate happenings with those in his 30+ years phenological data collection. 

Today, in our talkback segment, John Latimer takes listeners on a tour of the KAXE-KBXE Season Watch page on Facebook to share what some of our Seasonwatchers are dialoguing about.
