Taking time to contemplate what is happening in nature is one of the many aspects of Northern Community Radio that sets us apart from any other radio station.  Each day we bring you a phenology note where our resident phenologist John Latimer shares a note from his journals of more than 35 years of climate and nature data collection.  Each Tuesday we dig even deeper with the weekly Phenology Report.  Today, John talked of sighting ravens, rabbits, and bald eagles. He also mentions that coming soon the owls will be nesting and canids will be courting.  what are you seeing outside?

During our Phenology Talkback segment every Tuesday we hear about what school kids and adults are noticing outside.  This week the reports included lessons in ice safety and tree identification as well as observations of mouse prints in the snow, porcupines altering their feeding habits, feathered friends, squirrels and ice skating.

Tuesdays are special at Northern Community Radio and when school is in session, we are even more jazzed than normal because in addition to hearing from our listeners, young phenologists across Minnesota call in their classroom phenology reports.  Kids reported on chickadees eating out of their hands, feeding squirrels, sightings of bobcats, mink and fishers, and one kid even asked his mom to take out a six point buck with her car.  She wasn't interested.  Listen to to the links for the full experience!
