Butterfly sighting

Aug 18

Karl and Dorothy Legler

Location: Blue River Barrens, Russell Hill, Glen Haven.
Grant County

Temp 85 degrees. Sunny. 14 species. We searched intensively for Little Yellow at Russell Hill but could not find any. Dorothy found the Common Checkered-Skipper here, a rare migrant, . I found one at Glen Haven. We also heard our First-Of-Year Dusk-singing Cicada (at noon!) and Scissorsgrinder Cicada, in Lancaster.
