The January thaw Larry Weber predicted has come to pass, with record-breaking warm temperatures (45 degrees yesterday), northern shrikes and the winter crane fly.

Sunrises are coming earlier (around 7:50am), sunsets are coming later (around 4:45pm) and while it's too soon to be looking for spring, naturalist Larry Weber says next week's January thaw is really going to shake things up.
