Sighting for July 26, 2020

Beth Polvino

my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

To answer JC's question. I believe I am seeing a new Brazilian Skipper here in the yard. The nests are still on the small size and even though there are a good number of them none are longer than an inch in size. Thought I saw 2 BS's yesterday but today I am sure I saw 2 of them. I do have some pictures but focus isn't that great. Saw both in the morning in the back yard and about 5PM in the front yard.
