Backyard Almanac: Stepping Into September

September is here and only time will tell if the level of precipitation will finally shift. Since May, rainfall has been about half of what is usual. Though August did see some significant rainstorms, it still fell well shy of average.

Migration is picking up. Canada geese, grackles, red-winged black birds, swallows, warblers, and many more are taking flight and heading south. "The Bald Eagles are the ones being counted the most," says Larry Weber.

Take your eyes from the skies and you'll see berries and mushrooms on the ground. And soon enough, acorns and leaves will be joining them - Autumn is just around the corner.

You can hear Backyard Almanac every Friday at 8:20am on Northland Morning.
