July Happenings

Seasonal Update

Warm and sunny July days are the backdrop for blooming flowers, ripening fruit and fledging birds.

For years, Minnesota naturalist and author Jim Gilbert recorded seasonal happenings in his phenology reports. Looking back at these reports, we can make educated guesses at what we can expect in the month ahead. Take a look at our archive of Jim Gilbert’s Phenology reports.

And make sure to pick up our July/August Bird’s-Eye Newsletter for an interview with Bob Janssen, author of Birds in Minnesota: Revised and Expanded; American Goldfinches, and Seasonal Notes.
