Sighting for December 28, 2019

Michael Pasquarello

Congress Hall Hotel
Cape May County, NJ

Spotted this late beauty on our Autumn Olive bushes, which do bloom in the winter here. It was last seen on a piece of candy feeding.

[This late traveler gives us our sixth adult species for the month. jc]

[Update 1-3-20: Two reports of monarchs on the Cape May Christmas Bird Count on 12-15-19 came retrospectively. That gave us multiple reports of the species in the second half of December for only the third time in our log's history. jc]
