As the month of January comes to an end, Larry Weber tells us the highlights of the past week and the critters that are making their way back into the snowy world. Last week temperatures were an average of five degrees but this coming week we should be seeing temps go up to the mid-thirties. The total snowfall for the month of January was nine inches, a low number compared to other Duluth winters. We're approaching the middle of winter with a total snowfall of 17 inches.

The citizens of Duluth are not the only ones itching to get out with the approaching of higher temperatures, Larry shares with us that six different types of birds have been visiting his bird feeder this past week. While on his daily walks he also noticed the cawing of crows and skittering of other woodland animals. If you take your own walk, keep your eyes open for deer, coyotes, racoons and skunks.

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