Location: Hwy 16 & County Hwy P Oconomowoc
Waukesha County

Explored a two acre disturbed field laden with goldenrod, iron weed and asters for about an hour, seeking rare fall migrants. Success! Uncovered a Common Checkered Skipper, very fresh, and only sighted once before by me in Wakesha County during 2007. A slightly worn Dainty Sulfur , fourth sighting this year, added to the bonanza.
