Sighting for December 15, 2019

While doing a Cape May Christmas Count we kicked up a Mourning Cloak.

[Excellent! This is our first report of the month and keeps alive our log-long streak of at least one species seen in December each year since 2008. Will we find another this year?

Our low count for December is two reports – but in that very cold December of 2010 all we had were some cold chrysalises of common buckeye found by Will Kerling in Avalon and Cape May Courthouse. jc]
