Location: Crex Meadows SWA
Burnett County

First Karner Blue was seen on Crex Ridge Road, then one off N. Refuge Road in lupine patch. Viceroy, Karners, copper, skippers were seen on scat (muskrat?) at edge of Reed Lake. Fourth visit over the years that have found butterflies congregating on scat at this spot. Gotta love scat--the butterflies do!
