Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Phenology Talkbacks are an opportunity for students and 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 during the Phenology Show.
In this pre-holiday talkback segement we heard from classrooms and regular listeners alike!
Kids in Pike Lake noted that chipmunks favored mixed bird seed over sunflower seeds and lichen on trees.
Students at North Shore Community School report cloud ceiling, average humidity, a magpie and a great gray owl.
John recieved emails from Dawnette who reported a junco and a bobcat and Joel who sent in his bird report.
