Phenology Report

Every week John takes an indepth look at the subtle changes happening outside as the seasons move thru their cycles.   This week he reports on the bald eagle nesting near his home, birds returning to the area including robins and killdeer and purple finches, and his first chipmunk of the year.  It's a beautiful time of change outside!   Get out and enjoy it and then connect with us to let us know what you are noticing!  Call 218-999-9876 or email with your observations!  We'd love to hear from you!

One thing that connects us all and gives us all kinds of good feels is the beauty of nature right outside.  What a wonderful treat to continue receiving school phenology reports even though kids aren't attending school as they were just one week ago.  We are so grateful to get these reports from the kids! A ray of sunshine on a cloudy day, that is for sure.

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 when our resident phenologist John Latimer shares a note from his more than 35 years of personal journals documenting climate and nature data collection.  Each Tuesday he digs even deeper with the weekly Phenology Report.

We connect you to northern Minnesota at Northern Community Radio and Tuesdays are extra special as we go deep into phenology territory to give you a comprehensive picture of the biological events happening in nature as they relate to climate.  It's our day to really focus on what's going on in terms of climate and nature.   We heard incredible reporting from students this week and we are really hoping they continue to call in their reports even if school is cancelled!

This week, John reports on bird songs, the sun's placement in the sky, trumpeter swans, tapping trees, the progression of buds on trees and much more!
