Sighting for June 25, 2018

Renee Davis

Preston Road, near East Pharsalia
Chenango County, NY

While Valerie Freer and I were birding I ran across a fresh Milbert’s Tortoiseshell. I was excited to see one last year in Sullivan County and seeing one this early here in Chenango County makes me hope that it will be a good year for them. It’s been many years since my last encounter with them.
