Butterfly sighting

Scott and Ann Swengel

Location: Barrens in and near Sandhill Wildlife Area
Wood County

A 2nd summer survey at 4 of our 5 Karner Blue long-term monitoring sites in Wood County. We omitted one site that is the fastest phenology of our Karner Blue monitoring sites in any county, and where we found 69 Karner Blues on July 17. We had 38% female and 62% male Karner Blues today, a ratio which is spot on for the Karner peak in Wood County, which runs higher in females than our other study areas. On July 17 at these four sites we saw 3% female and 97% male Karner Blues.
