Butterfly sighting

Sep 28 2014

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Schoeneberg Marsh near Harvey Road
Columbia County

We looked for Purplish Coppers because of Jim Otto's September 2013 sightings of that species on more than one date here. 9:40-10:43 am, 66-71 degrees F, 100% sunshine, wind west 0-2 mph. The Purplish Copper was nearly at the east end of the curve in former Harvey Road after it turned from going north to going east. Bronze Coppers were on this "road" as well as on the trails east and north of the parking lot, and most were nectaring on white asters.
