Sighting for October 1, 2018

Steven Glynn

Dix WMA Sleepy Orange Colony
Cumberland County, NJ

Did survey of the colony from the roadside and from adjacent areas within Dix.

Will continue to monitor as the month cools and the colony heads into hibernation.

Good activity, but very surprised to find that Sachems have had an apparent die off.
