Week 9

 

2 May 2011- 6 May 2011
High winds kept the temperatures at bay this week along with some scattered showers. However, by Friday, even the wind couldn’t keep the temperatures down.

I am still doing a lot of little things around the office. Going over my data one more time, making sure that it has all been entered correctly. I have also been reading some more papers regarding the Prairie Chicken to help me better understand its situation and analyze the data.

On Wednesday I went out and gave a presentation, along with 5 other folks from the DNR, to some 5th and 6th graders, from the local schools, about the Prairie Chicken and the Prairie itself. I had a lot of fun that day. It was nice to get out of the office and the weather was extremely cooperative.

I am starting to see more birds starting to build their nest. A couple of Eastern Kingbirds have started to build a nest in the bushes just outside my house. All the while a pair of Eastern Phoebes have decided to use my house and built their nest under my overhang. The bees and wasps have also started to make an appearance buzzing around all of the wild flowers.
