Location: Barrens along Wood County Highway X
Half sun, 90-95 degrees F. Three right-of-way sites parallel to Wood County X near or fronting Sandhill Wildlife Area. We wanted to compare Karner Blue counts today to what we found June 7. The June 7 counts at these 3 sites were 150 males, 30 females, 2 unknown, 182 total, of which 17% were females. Today we had 41% females out of 83 total: 44 males, 31 females, 8 unknown. It was so hot the Karners were often closed up when they perched, not showing the top side for easier gender ID as much as usual.
