There have been observations of at least ten species so far this year (Cabbage White, Mustard White, Northern Spring Azure, Eastern Comma, Grey Comma, Mourning Cloak, Hoary Elfin, Brown Elfin, Painted Lady, and American Lady), and there are another dozen species that should also be flying (Bog Elfin, Henry’s Elfin, Eastern Pine Elfin, Western Pine Elfin, Juvenal’s Duskywing, Hoary Comma, Satyr Comma, Green Comma, Milbert’s Tortoiseshell, Compton Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral and Harvester). The warm weather in the forecast is a welcome sight, so get out there and take advantage of it!
