Butterfly sighting

May 27 2017

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Riley Lake Bogs east of Fifield
Price County

7 Bogs: 0.25 miles east of Foret Road 148, south side of Hwy 70, 1.9 and 2.3 miles south of Hwy 70, east side of FR 137, 2.3+ mile south of Hwy 70, southwest side of FR 137, south of FR 136, and 1.7 and 5.4 mile south of Hwy 70, east side of FR 505. All four bogs where we regularly see Frigga Fritillaries produced at least one. Four of the Friggas were south of FR 136. Rain or snow on about 80% of the dates from the April 20s to May 27 (and it kept raining to May 30) seem to have depressed the overall butterfly numbers in the northland.
