Butterfly sighting

Jul 29

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Grasslands/heaths northwest of Clam Lake
Bayfield County

We surveyed two Common Branded Skipper sites but no other areas. Butterfly activity was just getting started after a cloudy start when we arrived, so this may be an undercount. The sky was clouding up after a brief period of half-sun, so we didn't wait in hopes of getting better sky conditions. We saw 30 male, 10 female, and 48 Common Brandeds of unknown gender.
