Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids as they share what they've been observing outside. Things are hopping out in nature these days, and we don't just mean the frogs.  Loons, killdeer, robins, trumpeter swans, snake shed, goldeneye and yellowbellied sapsuckers are just a few of what students and listeners reported seeing.  Click the links to hear the full reports!

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. In this week's report, John compares what he's seeing this year to past year's data collection. Among the wildlife activity he's documented so far this year, John has witnessed buffleheads, hooded mergansers, and flickers.

Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids as they share what they've been observing outside.  This week there were some incredible phenology notes gathered by the kids - porcupines, great blue herons,increased daylight, snowdays, slushy lakes, turkeys and syrup are just the tip of the iceberg.  We even heard from students at the University of MN St. Paul campus!  Click on the reports to hear the full reports from our intrepid reporters, a song from U of M students and much more!

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. This week, John kept track of some special spring events: the drumming of roughed grouse, killdeer, woodcock, garter snakes, the call of the saw whet out, and the developments on the speckled alder.   Also in this segment is a conversation with special guest and longtime contributor to KAXE-KBXE, retired DNR Biologist Bill Berg.

 

Every week we hear from Minnesota school kids and regular listeners as they call or email us with nature observations. Spring has sprung in northern Minnesota and boy are we stoked about that!  This week's phenological observations include sandhill cranes, red cardinals, gallons of sap, a flock of vultures, robins and much more!
