Phenology is the rhythmic biological nature of events as they relate to climate.  Each week, listeners send along phenological observations and questions to Northern Community Radio resident phenologist John Latimer closely assesses the subtle changes happening outside and gives a full, official phenology report.

This week John’s report is full of signs of changing seasons, bird migrations, flocks of flickers,, sunflowers blooming, leaves dropping, and much more!

Phenology Talkbacks happen every Tuesday morning around 6:50am.  Our resident phenologist gathers the emails and phone messages he's received from listeners throughout the week and shares them with the radio audience.  This week we heard from the Newstok kids, Russell, Pat, Scot, Lynn and Rory.  Nighthawks, hummingbirds, warblers, a wasp and a perplexing bird call are just some of the observations included in this rich report.

Every Tuesday our resident phenologist John Latimer takes a closer look at the natural world around us during the Phenology Show.  We share observations from listeners who send in their nature notes via phone and email during our Talkback segment and John gives his official Phenology Report noting the current changes in flora and fauna and comparing those to the notes in his extensive phenology journals.
