Research on urban gardens has shown that even small flower gardens can provide important food and shelter for wildlife. Native plants in particular offer pollen and nectar for bees, butterflies, and other insects and fruit and seeds for birds and mammals. The pollinators they attract also visit neighboring vegetable and fruit crops, which can increase food production.

Let's face it: The grasshopper sparrow is not the most charismatic bird in the grassland. It is not graced with the melodious, far-carrying song of the meadowlark. Its call is almost indistinguishable from the chirping of a grasshopper. It lacks the eye-catching coloration and attention-grabbing antics of the bobolink. Indeed, the grasshopper sparrow is a rather dull-looking bird in comparison, with brown and taupe coloration alleviated only by dots of yellow just above its eyes. It usually keeps a low profile, skulking down in vegetation. Most birders dismiss the grasshopper sparrow as a "little brown job." Yes, all in all, this bird is an unlikely hero.http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/mcvmagazine/issues/2015/mar-apr/grasshopper-sparrow-project.html

In late January, black bear sows are giving birth to cubs in their dens. These images, courtesy of DNR assistant regional wildlife manager Blane Klemek, were taken while he was assisting research biologists Dave Garshelis and Karen Noyce. The momma bear is one that had been tracked via radio collar for several years. On this particular year, she decided to den on the ground inside a corral of logs where she gave birth to four cubs. She is no longer a study bear and is no longer being tracked. #wildlife
