Subject: Orange County Butterflies-April 3

Susan and I walked 3.5 miles at Mason Farm this afternoon. The crossing ove=
r Morgan Creek is closed due to high water, so we had to walk in through Pa=
rker Preserve. In the beginning, it was COLD=E2=80=A6about 48F and eventual=
ly warmed to 55F. Butterflies were scarce=E2=80=A6I think many may be in th=
e initial stages of decay after the last 2 frigid nights. We only found 6 s=
pecies in all, versus 7 species of warblers! A tepid effort to be sure. The=
complete list follows:

Zebra Swallowtail-1
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail-11
Falcate Orangetip-1 female
Eastern Tailed-Blue-2
Question Mark-2
Red Admiral-1
