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.

This week in the Phenology Report,  resident phenologist  John Latimer takes listeners on a bit of an adventure.    In just a few minutes,   we hear him imitate the call of a saw-whet owl,   learn why it's troubling to see a bat at this time of year, listen to the cardinal's song,  find out about porcupines in trees and coyotes' howls, and discover the subtle clues eagles and ravens have for us in terms of our season change.

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!
