Location: Various stops in tri-county area within 7 1/2 miles of Muscoda
Iowa County

This was one of two parties on the 11th annual Avoca NABA Count. We found 19 species. The best find was 3 Sachem. The other party was the SWBA Field Trip (see that report). Together the total for the Count was 34 species, our highest. Outstanding were Painted Ladies (17)! The commonest butterfly on the count was Monarch (37)! That's the 2nd highest density in 11 years!
