Butterfly sighting

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Four barrens along County Highway X.
Wood County

1.5 hours. Sites are three rights-of-way east of Sandhill Wildlife Area and a state-owned powerline ROW just south of Sandhill. We found Leonard's Skippers at 3 of the 4 sites. The combined Karner Blue Counts this summer counting the best day at each site (achieved on 2+ tries on three different dates July 15-30) was 247. Several of the Karners today were fresh, even newly emerged with crinkled wings, and we think a fair proportion of the Karners were from a partial 3rd brood.
