Palmyra Cove Nature Park & adjoining private property

8:15 am to 12:45 pm. Red Admirals very common & count is accurate. Cabbage White count is estimate as I stopped counting at 50. Surprisingly not one swallowtail seen.

[The best evidence so far that we are experiencing a red admiral northbound migration. Several other reports suggest this as well. Keep an eye out, everyone! jc]
