January 2023 Sightings

Home yard, Galloway Township

This Mourning Cloak was found crawling on my living room floor, about 7 pm, with wood brought in from outside. It started to move its wings, so I put it into an enclosure immediately, then into a cool area for the night. In the morning, it was inactive, so I tucked it into the piece of wood where I thought it had been hiding, and put it back in a protected area of the woodpile. Luckily, the weather was fairly warm (upper 40’s). I’m hoping to see it emerge again in a few months!

[Yay! We have our first butterfly of 2023! Congratulations, Jeanine! jc]
