Sighting for June 16, 2018

Renee Davis

Pole Road, Fir Brook Area
Sullivan County, NY

Finally a sunny warm day! Harris’s Checkerspots were on both sides of the road in the same exact spot as they have been for many years. This is the first time I’ve had this many Arctic Skippers at this location and only the second time seeing them here. Hobomok Skippers are rarely seen or reported in Sullivan County, nice to see them today.
