Phenology Talkbacks & Student Reports: 10/13/20

Oct 14, 2020

Phenology Talkbacks are an opportunity for listeners to connect with the station thru one of our favorite things: nature! Each week, listeners and students report observations and present questions to our resident phenologist, John Latimer. 

What are you noticing? Send your observations via email or voicemail at 218-999-9876.  You could even record a voice memo on your phone and send your thought that way!

If you are a teacher interested in getting your class on the phenology trail, John has created a whole phenology curriculum!  Send him an email for more information!

This week we heard from listeners who reported an albino grackle, evening grosbeaks, and major changes in their views!

Kids in Kelliher reported new kittens, cats chasing birds, birds playing dead, and spiders!

Ruth in Marcell snuck us the Newstok family report after siblings Axel and Pearl went to bed.

Cohasset students report earlier sunsets and large flocks of birds.

Kids at Cherry school observed a wide variety of animals this week including coyotes, bald eagles, and raccoons.

Hill City phenologists estimate amount of color change and leaf drop on a wide variety of forest shrubs and trees in their report!

Pike Lake kids report lower lake levels and owls and they give advice on how to help out birds that continuously hit house windows.
