Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Each week, our resident phenologist John Latimer closely assesses the subtle changes happening outside and gives a full, official phenology report. Included in this week's report are changes to the Christmas Bird Count due to Covid-19 and some listener observations about chipmunks. John also shares an essay about muskrats and encourages us to take notice of the art and architecture created by brush along the roadsides. Check out details of these highlights and much more in the full report!
