Phenology

Third Week of October

Beavers are busy cutting trees to store for winter food, which consists mainly of bark from branches of aspens, alders, birches, maples, and willows. Wild cranberry fruit is ripe in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin bogs, and the commercial cranberry harvest is underway in northwestern and central Wisconsin. Each year there is an influx of American coots on quite a few southern Minnesota lakes. Flocks containing 1,000 or more of these gregarious coots bob on the water in tight flotillas or rafts.
