We’ll likely pull out the lawnmowers for the first time this month—but don’t put away your snow shovels yet! The earliest warbler arrives, goslings hatch and lilacs bloom. What else is happening in April?
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 March/April Bird’s-Eye Newsletter. You’ll learn about the different types of beaks/bills on birds and about the different species of wrens you may find around Minnesota. It also includes our Seasonal Notes.
