We are not yet getting good butterflies in good numbers at DeKorte, but in the past 24 hours we have gotten a (partially chewed) female Pipevine Swallowtail (above), a Question Mark (below), and two Viceroys (one is at bottom), plus a Red Admiral, skippers, sulphurs and the old reliable Cabbage Whites.
Also had a Monarch and Black Swallowtail (photos available on request).
Kevin Bolton took this Digiscope shot earlier this — the turtle was one of a pair of behemoths at Mill Creek Marsh.
Yes, that is a female Cabbage White — congrats to Mike G. for answering correctly.
We have been hearing — and catching — glimpses of Indigo Buntings in Lyndhurst and North Arlington.
Caught this guy on a landfill the other day, but one of his cousins has been seen in DeKorte — just not by us.
