Phenology

First Week of March

House finches and northern cardinals sing early and often. Great horned owl pairs are feeding newly hatched young. With warming temperatures expect huge migrations of waterfowl moving into southern Minnesota, including white-fronted, Canada, and snow geese, plus more than a dozen duck species. More American crows and bald eagles return to northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, where deep snow most years covers much of the landscape. This can be the best cross-country skiing and snowshoeing of the entire winter in the north.

March 6, 2016 - On this first 60-degree day of the year, maple syrup producers reported very good sap runs and the first migratory American robins returned.
