Sighting for November 4, 2020

Beth Polvino

my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

Sunny, 67, with slight winds and a nice selection of butterflies. First Ocola Skipper in the yard since 10/22. 4 mint fresh Cloudless Sulphur’s which I believe must have eclosed here. Est counts of both Fiery and Sachem Skippers. Numbers were higher but as working in the garden didn’t take the time for a more accurate count. I always find it surprising that we can have several days of quite bad weather and they still bounce back.
