A dead tree, or snag, can serve as both a home and a cafeteria for many neighborhood and migrating birds. The tree's bark will become a bit looser and attract many insects, which lay eggs in the bark's inner and outer surfaces. As the insect eggs hatch, many species of birds, including colorful warblers, nuthatches, creepers, woodpeckers and chickadees will explore the bark to feast on bugs, larvae and eggs.

The National Weather Service forecast calls for an above average risk of spring flooding along the Red River in Minnesota and North Dakota. Saturated soils, the amount of water in the snow-pack and high stream levels have produced a risk of moderate to major flooding in that area. The forecast has prompted the Department of Public Safety Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEM) to move to the next phase within the state's emergency planning process. HSEM has moved from monitoring the situation to preparing for the possibility of flooding.
