Phenology Talkbacks: 1/12/21

Jan 12, 2021

Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate. Phenology Talkbacks are an opportunity for us to hear what you are noticing outside.   Each week, our resident phenologist John Latimer gathers the talkback comments and closely assesses the subtle changes happening outside. 

In this student report, kid from Pike Lake Elementary report deer tracks, skiing and hoar frost! 

  Students from North Shore Community School report great gray owls, northern shrike and the Spirit Moon.

  The Newstok kids called in a report from Memphis this week!

  Tina from Laporte reported high and low temps for the week, fishermen in tshirts and an eruption in evening grosbeaks.

  And, Marilyn called from Topeka, KS.  She's been conducting a little experiment with her birdfeeders! 

KAXE-KBXE Northern Community Radio is listener funded.  If you appreciate that programming like this exists in the world, consider making a year-end contribution to the station to ensure we can continue this service for years to come!
