I have been staying home in recent days working on websites on my
computer. I walked around Fletcher Park, in the middle of Raleigh around
midday today, on a bird walk. Interesting, I saw one CABBAGE WHITE
(expected) and 2 ORANGE SULPHURS, definitely a surprise. This species has
gotten hard to find within the Wake County count circle, and is mainly
found at large fields now near the Art Museum and Prairie Ridge. I do
cover this park on counts, but I had never seen it there; maybe it isn't
there in August.

Glad others of you are getting out now, as it has been a warmer than normal
winter and first part of March.
