Butterfly sighting

Location: Stanton Road Barrens
Jackson County

1:20 hours total. We surveyed our Karner Blue long-term monitoring (l-t) Stanton Main site (62 straight broods monitored) and two non-l-t sites (at one, we have counted 20-25 Karner broods), all along the westernmost 1.25 miles of Stanton Road. These Karner Blue counts are at the highest end of the range that we've ever counted for those 3 sites. 72% of the Karners for which we could tell gender were males, vs. about 68% males for the other sites we surveyed today.
