A yard full of hummingbirds is a delight, but to get them attracted to your house requires having a hummingbird feeder (or lots of flowers that they love). With the weather getting warmer and warmer even though we're in February, you might be wondering when would be the best time to put your hummingbird feeders back up.
Very soon, not one but two different cicada broods will simultaneously emerge from the ground in Illinois by the billions (some estimates have the number reaching 1 trillion or more). Some places in the state will have it worse than others, but there's no doubt that their coming emergence will probably be one for the record books.
Getting inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is not an easy task but some well-deserving bands from Illinois have currently been snubbed hopefully, their names will be called soon as they wait patiently for the honor.
I expect this will create a very hot debate. The internet 'experts' are warning that there is one cookie everyone in the state should avoid at all costs, but there's just one teeny tiny problem. It isn't really a cookie.
