  Every Tuesday our own John Latimer reports on the subtle changes happening in nature in his Phenology Report.  Spring is here and northern Minnesota is very much alive with exciting new action that only happens in the spring.  Trees are leafing out, new insects are buzzing and crawling around, birds have returned and all kinds of babies are being born.  It's a good time in the north woods! 

If you have phenology comments or questions, send John an email or leave a message on our talkback line 218.999.9876.  We love hearing from our listeners and your information helps us tell the phenology story of our natural world! 

Also, if you love the Phenology Show, you'll love our KAXE-KBXE Season Watch Page on Facebook.  Check it out!

As a mail carrier in rural Grand Rapids, Minn., for 35 years, John Latimer put his own stamp on a career that delivered more than letters. Indeed, while driving the hundred-mile round-trip daily route, he passed the time by observing and recording seasonal changes in nature, learning everything he could about the area’s weather, plants and animals, and becoming the go-to guy who could answer customers’ questions about what they were seeing in the environment.
