Sighting for July 3, 2021

Steven Glynn

Wheelabrator garden area
Gloucester County, NJ

With three days of rain, a brief break provided an opportunity to get out, but from 5:10pm to 5:35pm. Not expecting much, I was very surprised with the activity at the garden and immediate area. Ocola skipper is my earliest ever in NJ by more than two months!

[Excellent find! Our 2nd earliest record of Ocola and only the third time we have had our FOY before August 1. jc]
