I birded the NC State U. farm fields south of Raleigh, followed up by some
butterflying. I did visit the NCSU Acro-ecology farm patch of milkweeds
today, but the annual plantings in the gardens are not there yet. Some
things were at nearby Yates Mill or Mid-Pines Road margins. Here is the
list from about 830-1045:

Black Swallowtail 1 female
Spicebush Swallowtail 3
Cabbage White 20 tried to turn anything white into a Checkered, but
nope-- haven't seen it here since 2018
Orange Sulphur 3 have been more earlier in spring
CLOUDED SULPHUR 1 very fresh; scarce here; I only attempt to call this
one when quite fresh
BANDED HAIRSTREAK 1 I swear it was the same individual on the same Water
Oak leaf at Yates as from last year! Of course a different bug, and it
was a tad worn, but ... still -- exact same place about a year later
E. Tailed-Blue 4
Variegated Fritillary 5
Eastern Comma 1 on new bridge at Yates
American Lady 12 all over the Common Milkweeds
Common Buckeye 15 ditto, plus roadsides
Monarch 4
Fiery Skipper 2 on milkweeds
Sachem 1 worn male on roadside
Dun Skipper 2 on milkweeds
