Phenology

Fourth Week of August

Buckets of zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, and apples appear on our back steps, put there by some unknown benefactor. The warbler migration has begun; black-and-white, yellow, and Tennessee warblers, and many American redstarts are moving through. Indian and big bluestem grasses shed pollen and stand tall on Minnesota prairies. Insects that sing through the night include snowy tree crickets, cone-headed grasshoppers, katydids, common black crickets, black-horned tree crickets, and Carolina ground crickets.

August 20, 2016 - Indian-pipes, puffballs, inky caps, and at least a dozen other mushroom species were up.
