Bob Prentice and I visited the northeast of the County and found five new butterflies for the year – Gray Comma, Northern Spring Azure (Note: The Spring Azure in this area has now been re-classified as Northern Spring Azure, Celastrina lucia), Olympia Marble, Hoary Elfin, and Henry’s Elfin. We also heard a Red-shouldered Hawk calling.
