July 2008 Sightings in the Windsor Area

Edward's Hairstreak, Spring Garden Natural Area

line

Saturday, July 5: The annual butterfly count was held today. The record amount of rainfall in June did not seem to have adverse impact on butterflies numbers and we recorded about the same number of individuals as last year. While some common butterflies can be found throughout the area others can be difficult to detect away from their preferred habitat. American Coppers (record high count) are best found in the dry open sites at Spring Garden Natural Area while Hickory Hairstreaks (record high count) were largely absent away from the LaSalle Woodlot. Great Spangled Fritillaries are most common in the open wet prairie and savanna habitat found in the nature reserve.

For the complete butterfly results visit the count page.
