Mid April Arrivals
My morning started with me flushing a Green Heron (CHECK) off from a beaver pond in France Brook as it flew up into a dead snag! I had thought for a second it could have been a Bittern but was only a Green Heron!
In the same general area was my first Swamp Sparrow (CHECK) for 2009’s singing it’s signature sowing-machine song.
Then on Facebook our good friend Marg mentioned that I should blog about butterflies that I am finding! At that point nothing new had started flittering around until this morning when I saw my first Spring Azure (CHECK) for the year!
I then had two West Virginia Whites (CHECK) flittering around the bike path in an area that I don’t typically find any West Virginia Whites until later in the season!! Lets anticipate this as a sign of a great West Virginia White season!!!! Although Marg has already seen her Eastern Comma . . . . I am still waiting for my first of the year Comma to make its appearince! Sound’t be long though!
