This was our 15th year doing the Wisconsin portion of the Dubuque NABA Butterfly Count. In 5.5 hours we found 80 individuals of 23 species. Species is about average but individuals is 3rd lowest! High numbers of Wild Indigo Duskywing (7) and of Common Buckeye (3). A second Juniper Hairstreak was dead. The rare female Southern Dogface was new to the count.
