FOY Long-tailed Skipper in the back yard this AM. 2 days earlier than my earliest record which was in 2019. Hoping for some other southern strays to head our way soon. Windy, sunny, temp 74.

[Congratulations, Beth! This is the first long-tailed reported to our log since you found our last one in your yard on 10-25-19. Nice to see! jc]
