Sighting for April 4, 2023

David L. Amadio

Glassboro WMA
Gloucester County, NJ

Obs. made from 11:15 to 4:15, Mostly sunny and low 70's. Near perfect weather but few butterflies. Very little opportunity for decent images. Azures afforded little chance for I.D. Glassboro was not too long ago a great place for sorting out the azures, but numbers have been way down in recent years. One Mourning Cloak landed on my hat at least 4 times. It charged at me numerous times. Enjoyed the sound of its wings!

[The sounds of a butterly's wings – a special pleasure appreciated only by the truly attentive ;-)! jc]
