Karen Riede reports that on Sunday, she and a couple birders stopped by the Ridgefield Nature Center, and : "A Mourning Cloak butterfly greeted us as soon as we opened the gate. Later we saw an American Painted Lady."
We are posting one of our file pix of the Mourning Cloak in case anyone would like to see one for ID purposes– beautiful butterfly.
On Monday, there was a Cabbage White on Disposal Road (pretending to be a raptor, no doubt), and another one at Harrier Meadow. Spring is in the air.
