Phenology

Fourth Week of April

Watch for the first newly hatched Canada goose goslings and mallard ducklings. Listen for the first house wren. Cattle graze on lush green pastures and lawn mowing has started in southern Minnesota. At least a dozen species of woodland wildflowers, such as large-flowered bellwort and white trout-lily, cover forest floors. Listen for American toads and common tree frogs calling. It's ice-out time for far northern Minnesota and Wisconsin lakes, and the return of common loons there.

April 25, 2016 - Thickets of wild plum began blooming. In gardens, blooming daffodils, eastern redbuds, and rhododendrons were spectacular. Ice went out on Lake Vermilion and Gunflint Lake.
