Phenology Talkbacks happen every Tuesday at Northern Community Radio.  It's the time in our week when we compile and share the comments, questions and observations about nature that listeners send our way.   This week we heard from several astute youngsters around the listening area.  We're impressed with these kids' observation skills!  What have you noticed out in nature these days?  We would love to hear about it!
