DeKorte Butterflies

We continue to get good butterflies at DeKorte, including the Question  Mark above, photographed yesterday along with many other sIMG_9978-1pecies, including the Eastern Tailed Blue at left.

We say this as a reminder that Meadowlands Festival of Birding on Saturday includes a Butterfly walk at DeKorte from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

To give you an idea of what has been around: Vinny Corsello of the North Jersey Chapter of the North American Butterfly Association visitied DeKorte on Aug. 29 and came up with 21 species.

Full list follows. (Thanks, Vinny!)
