Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids and regular listeners as they call or email us with their nature observations. The phenological data we gathered this week indicates that weatherwise, as Dylan says, "the times they are a'changin."  We received nine school reports and four reports from adult listeners.  Everyone is reporting animal activity out in nature that indicates spring is on its way.  

Apple Blossom Nature School in Bemidji sent their report using Haikus... you can read those below.

Phenology is the biological nature of events as they relate to climate.  Every Tuesday morning, our resident Phenologist John Latimer gathers his phenological data and reports his findings in the weekly Phenology Report.  You get to compare two weeks' reports in today's post!  So interesting to hear the subtle and not so subtle changes that happen in just one week!

Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids as they call or email us with their nature observations. It may be frigid outside, but the kids noticed all kinds of activity this week.  Swans on the river, bald eagles, coyotes, a wolf in someone's yard, wild turkeys and information on where you can look to see Jupiter and Venus in the night and early morning sky are all inlcuded in these reports!

Every week we hear from regular listeners and Minnesota school kids as they call or email us with their nature observations. We heard from several people who emailed messages to John this week and from four classrooms that put together some phenomenal phenology reports! Included this week are some beautiful observations  including a deer on someone's front porch, a bull moose, and a sunsent that caused the sky to have an orange hue with a tint of green and a cloud formation that made part of the sky look like a lake with islands.
