Recent weeks in the San Francisco Bay Area have been cloudy / rainy with
little sun. Monday=E2=80=99s (3-11-2017) warmer sunnier weather brought th=
e
butterflies out.

This is illustrated by 3 days at Alum Rock Park, San Jose, CA=E2=80=A6..a
well-known butterfly spot .

1. Friday, 3-8-2019. Temperature 55 degrees, mostly cloudy, some sun. 7
Margined Whites. No Sara Orange-tip. No Sonoran Blue.

2. Saturday, 3-9-2019. Temperature 51-56 degrees.: mostly cloudy, a little
rainy, little sun. No butterflies.

3. Monday, 3-11-2019. Temperature 64+, sunny and cloudless.

Butterflies seen were=E2=80=A6... 23 Sara Orangetip, 7 Mourning Cloak, 7 Ec=
ho Blue,
I Satyr Anglewing, 7 Margined White, I Sonoran Blue,m.,

3 California Tortoiseshell, 8 unidentified blues (likely mostly Echo Blue),
2 Acmon Blue, 1 Propertius Duskywing, 3 California Ringlet.

Clearly the better weather brought the butterflies out. Of particular
interest, the special butterfly Sonoran Blue made its appearance on this
warmer sunnier day.

This was not however the first sighting of the year for this beautiful
butterfly. It was reported already at Alum Rock Park a few weeks earlier,
during the almost continuous bad weather.
