Phenology

Third Week of May

Showy blooming woodland wildflowers include large-flowered trillium, wild blue phlox, columbine, wild geranium, and Virginia waterleaf. About 20 species of migrating warblers are moving through the Twin Cities. Common nighthawks and chimney swifts return in numbers. Southern and western Minnesota farmers finish planting corn and soybeans. Along the Gunflint Trail and other parts of Cook County the landscape has a beautiful mint look with small leaves out on paper birches and quaking aspens. Also in Cook County, Canada mayflower and marsh-marigolds are blooming, the first ruby-throated hummingbirds are back, and common loons are incubating eggs.
