Phenology

Fourth Week of June

American goldfinches feed on goat's-beard seedheads. Baltimore oriole young leave their nests. June is the prime month for Minnesota's 200 plus nesting bird species. Agassiz National Wildlife Refuge in northwest Minnesota may be the richest bird-breeding site in the Upper Midwest, with close to 140 species of nesting birds. The peak time to see fireflies is now and into early July. Look for these tiny flashing lights over meadows and grassy ditches not far from woodlands, starting a half-hour after sunset. Vivid blooming field plants in northern Minnesota include orange hawkweed, Canada hawkweed, ox-eye daisy, tall buttercup, birdís-foot trefoil, and red clover.
