Phenology

Spring red_winged_blackbirdBird Migration – Today is February 18th, 2017 and the Sandhill cranes and Red-winged black birds have returned in full force.  The day is unusually warm at 61 degrees Fahrenheit with a gentle breeze and sunny skies. The ground squishes underfoot, patches of moss are vibrant green and the Box elder bugs are having a hay day to say the least.  A Wooly bear caterpillar was making its way across Memorial Field.
