Yesterday’s phenology: March continues. Temps maybe crept into the 40s. Snow receding. Grass beneath all brown and dead looking. Martha reports seeing a murder of crows harassing a great horned owl in the morning. There certainly are many crows aboot. That must be a sign of something. “When hundreds of crows do thee see, then…?”

Song of the day: Sinead O’Connor & The Chieftans, The Foggy Dew

Yesterday’s Phenology: The days are all blending together, a long gray line. Cloudy skies and slightly above freezing again yesterday. Just like the day before, and the day before, and the day before.

Song of the Day: Jack Teagarden, What Did I Do to Be So Black and Blue

THE place to go if you are looking for 78s in the Twin Cities.

Yesterday’s phenology: Ducks and Geese, Wasps and Bees, and wee flying spinning  things which catch the sunlight but I can’t make out what they are, but they are everywhere. Cool nights, and our furnace kicked on this morning, which seems early to this phenologist, but records on the furnace kick-on date are non-existent. The commute east in the morning this week has been rather wicked, with nary a cloud in the sky and the sun a painfully bright orange orb rising up at the end of every avenue.

Song of the day? Can you guess?
