At Woody Pond there was wild hydrangea, helitrope, buttonbush where we found Swallowtails, Monarch and Duskywings. At the boat ramp parking lot the Helitrope was where we found Great Purple HS, Skippers & Sulphurs.

Many spring species were seen versus some that are normally seen the 1st week of June from previous years. Several no ID small whites observed. Thought to be a marble species. One no ID duskywing with white band.

Results of NABA count. One of 4 unknown grass skippers looked to be a Byssus Skipper. I got very nice looks at it through binoculars, but was unable to get a photo. Unfortunate as this would have been a state record I believe.

Surveyed from 11:30 am to 5:30 pm. Partly cloudy with temperature in the upper 80’s. Excited to see a Common Wood Nymph after not seeing one for several years, then I was really surprised to see 16 of them. There were Red-banded Hairstreaks everywhere. A lot of satyrs as well, however, I did not take the time to identify most of them.

We found the Shasta Blue on the West side of the dirt road in the high altitude mountain desert which was in full bloom with ‘Cushion Flowers’. It was quite cool & cloudy when we arrived at 8:40. There were a couple of rainshowers sending us back to the truck before we saw 1 Shasta Blue at the base of a Sagebrush Plant at 10:10. We saw the others butterflies prior to that. The Dotted Blue was a Pacific Dotted Blue.

Sandy Hook
Monmouth County, NJ

The unofficial annual count of Sandy Hook butterflies has taken place on the last Thursday in June for many years. I have participated in 12 of the last 13 years’ counts. Unfortunately, none of the other regular participants were able to join me this year, so the sightings are all my observations for this year’s count. I began at 8:30 am and ended at 4:00 pm. The weather was hot (>90º F) and sunny with a slight, intermittent breeze. The years since Hurricane Sandy have been off-years at Sandy Hook, both in numbers and diversity of species, however, this year there was a significant rebound in numbers, though not in species diversity. A major part of the numbers rebound is likely due to the status of the nectar sources - the Guardian Park Privet was in full bloom as were numerous, healthy stands of milkweed. The milkweed likely benefited from a good growing season last year and a lot of rain this year and it was in full bloom, attracting large numbers of butterflies. Particularly abundant this year were American snouts and Common buckeyes as well as Summer azures. One Coral hairstreak was seen (I could not recall the location of the sumac on which they are normally found, or the numbers may have been higher). One surprise - an Eastern comma, not normally seen on Sandy Hook was observed in the campground area this year.
