February Happenings

Seasonal Update

Have you heard? Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow on February 2nd and therefore predicts an early spring! 

Another way to predict what may happen this month is to look at what has occurred this month in years past. That’s exactly what naturalist and author Jim Gilbert does in his phenology reports. Take a look at our archive of Jim Gilbert’s Phenology reports.

Also, pick up our latest edition of the Bird’s-Eye View newsletter for resolutions for bird lovers, serving peanuts, and tree trunk travelers—nuthatches and Brown Creepers.
