So many phenology indicators this week  that spring is getting closer and closer!  Starlings, drumming grouse, roosting partridges, otters, fishers, cardinals, and chickadees feeding right out of a child's hands! We heard from the kids at North Shore Community School, Roosevelt Elementary, Robert J. Elkington Middle School this week.  We also got a report from Mark from Effie as well as Jeff from Brainerd, Joel and Dallas.  Thanks to all of you for your great phenology reporting.
