Phenology Talkbacks 11/24/20: Student Reports & a Question from Kansas!

Angela Nistler via KAXE-KBXE Season Watch FB Page

Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to climate.  Phenology Talkbacks are an opportunity for listeners to connect with the station about nature.  Each week, resident phenologist John Latimer gathers the phenological correspondence and classroom observations sent his way.  He shares and discusses them every Tuesday morning, shortly before 7am. Thanks to everyone who contributes to the Phenology Talkbacks! We are grateful!

This week we heard from students in Kelliher, Hill City, Pike Lake, and Duluth, and Marilyn from Topeka, KS sent along a question about birds! 

Kelliher kids spotted turkeys and an insect eating plant! 

Students in Hill City noticed mink and grouse from the deer stand!

Pike Lake kids are back in the Phenology swing of things after transitioning to full-time, remote school.  Glad to have them back!
