What a difference a day makes. Today in my breeding bird survey area (I stayed out of the worst of the deep woods), I saw several great butterflies. Many were on a single flowering Nine-bark bush. If I had room in my garden, I'd plant one. I've also included here a Woodcock chick because it's just so darn cute.
