Location: NABA count west of Ashland
Bayfield County

3rd year for this NABA count. 8 participants in 2 parties. Record high of 40 species. Earlier phenology this year gave us the summer generation of anglewings, which were abundant and fresh. Species highlights were Green Commas, Appalachian Brown, Dion Skippers, and my first ever Delaware Skipper. A fantastic day!
