30 September 2009
Today Chuck Tague reminded me it’s time for an October phenology report. Yikes! I wrote September’s “What to Look For” only three days ago and included some early October predictions. Is there any more to say?
I read Chuck’s list and right off the bat his is better than mine. Did you know that October is a good month to find Woolly Bear caterpillars? Did you know the Woolly Bear is the larva of the Isabella Tiger Moth? I didn’t.
So rather than bore you with my own paltry list I urge you to read Chuck’s at Asters, Woolly Bears and Sweaters: A phenological perspective for October.
p.s. News! Three (or more) of Chuck Tague’s bird photos will be part of the OnQ show I blogged about yesterday. Watch for his scarlet tanager, indigo bunting and mourning dove in the Birding for Everyone segment on Monday, 5 October 2009 at 7:30pm on WQED.
