We surveyed the same two sites as on July 29 and found 36 Common Branded Skippers today, compared to 88 on July 29. We also saw 4 Common Brandeds while surveying both sides of the road for 1.1 miles (roads not surveyed July 29). Today's total Common Branded Skipper count was 9 males, 7 females, and 24 where we couldn't tell the gender.
