I visited Raleigh's Anderson Point Park from 10:30- 12:30 today to look for
birds and although birding was quite slow, butterfly activity was pretty
good. Mostly clear, mild, 80F and calm. Most butterflies were nectaring on
mist flower, wingstem and goldenrod.

Black Swallowtail 2
Spicebush Swallowtail 1
Cabbage White 1
Orange Sulphur 2
Little Yellow 1
Cloudless Sulphur 8
Sleepy Orange 18
Eastern-tailed Blue 11
Variegated Fritillary 10
Pearl Crescent 135
Common Buckeye 45
Red-spotted Purple 1
Viceroy 1
Carolina Satyr 2
Monarch 2
Silver-spotted Skipper 1
Common Checkered Skipper 3
Least Skipper 1
Clouded Skipper 5
Fiery Skipper 12
Sachem 3
Ocola Skipper 4

The best butterfly of the day appeared in my downtown Raleigh yard as I was
mowing the lawn after I left Anderson Point Park. A Mourning Cloak flew up
from part of a rotten peach I had discarded.
