Third Week of May

Remember to spare the dandelions and save the bees; common dandelion flowers, especially in the spring, are a critical food source for honey bees and other pollinators. The sword-like leaves of cattails are up a couple of feet, so marsh areas have begun to look quite green. Some birds visiting grape jelly feeders include Baltimore and orchard orioles, house finches, red-bellied woodpeckers, gray catbirds, scarlet tanagers, and yellow-rumped warblers. Female Baltimore orioles weave their nests. The first newly-hatched broods of wood duck ducklings jump from their nest boxes or tree cavities.

May 15, 2016 - Frost in parts of southern Minnesota killed apple blossoms, and hit leaves of sumac and black walnut.
