Butterfly sighting

Jul 6

SWBA Field Trip

Location: Sandhill Wildlife Area
Wood County

14 hopeful participants showed up this gloomy morning. After a slow start we were rewarded with sunshine and butterflies. Several flowages were surveyed along with some wooded areas. Highlights for the participants included the skippers and hairstreaks along with the Bronze Coppers and Harris' Checkerspots. After the trip ended, a few of us traveled to a nearby bog and managed to find a single Bog Copper. Photos of the Harris' Checkerspot are courtesy of Sylvia Barbarich.
