Butterfly sighting

Location: Buena Vista Grasslands Wildlife Area
Portage County

It was too cold and the vegetation too soaked for butterflies during our first 3 grassland bird surveys. The last 4 surveys at sites picked for seeing butterflies began to have butterflies. We had our 5th highest count of Karner Blues in any of the 42 broods we've monitored at one site here, and highest since 2004.
