White-winged crossbills on a double date?

A year ago, we broke the record with the warmest November temperature ever. The year before that, it was under 10° and the ice was thick enough to stand on.

Larry Weber loves a good alliterative phrase, but he had to coin "non-predictable November" for himself.

Whether it's weather or redpolls, November follows no precedent and no rules.

Nature-lovers, however, can count on a few things: the return of flying squirrels, World-Series moths, dancing crane flies and the return of Standard Time.

But unlike everyone else who's annoyed at the changing of the clocks, Larry says the stargazing is spectacular.
