Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to nature.  These days the activity in the natural world is profound... sometimes subtle and  requiring a concentrated effort to witness, other times taking over our senses.

Each week, our resident phenologist John Latimer provides listeners with a full report of what has been happening out in nature over the course of the week.  This week the report includes an early thunderstorm, aspen buds, pussy willow flowers, butterfly watch, a robin clarification lesson, and what birds to watch for in the coming days.  Bog walking, lakes melting, the end of the lake skating, and the sound of a saw whet owl...

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.
