Phenology

The rhythmic biological events are they relate to climate.

    Tuesday morning is the time we reflect on the changes taking place in the natural world around us.  Students and regular people just like you take the time to share their observations with us and we share them with our listeners.  What are you noticing around your house, along the roadsides, on the lake or in the woods?  We'd love to hear about it!  You can call and leave a message on our TalkBack line 218-999-9876, email our resident Phenologist John Latimer at jlatimer@kaxe.org or leave a general email message at comments@kaxe.org.

Last week we had a question about dwindling numbers of evening grosbeaks.  A listener wondered if it had to do with bird flu.  Harry and John weren't sure of the answer, so we got our friend Laura Erickson to tell us more about evening grosbeaks for A Talk on the Wildside. 

    Tuesday mornings are special around Northern Community Radio... Tuesdays, we take a closer look at the natural world we live in.   John Latimer has spent 33 documenting the phenological changes he notices each day.  Tuesday mornings we hear John's weekly report.  We also hear from students and regular people across our listening area as they share the subtle and not so subtle seasonal changes they are witnessing.  We would love to hear what you are noticing!

John Latimer helped with the tracking of loon trl_14.  There's a cool interactive map you can watch where this guy has been in the last few years. 

Don't forget you can follow us on Twitter at #kaxemorning and #phenology. 

And send us what you are seeing!  As the kids from Two Harbors would say "keep observing"!
