5 hours. Karner Blue population monitoring surveys at our Karner Blue long-term monitoring sites at Stanton Creek Road, Castle Mound Road, Brockway Road, Bauer Road, Cemetery Road, and Dike 17. Among Karners we could tell the gender of, 75% were males. Counting the Wood County Karner Blue L-t sites, we saw 391 Karners today. We saw 75 Ringlets in 1/2 hour at Dike 17, a new record high of Ringlets for one of central Wisconsin L-t sites. In 2002 at Dike 17 I saw our 1st Central Wisconsin Ringlet.
