I went to the other bridge (opposite the Boat House) hoping to see some goldfinches, but wasn't successful there, either. All I got at Danny's hide was this small (and obviously common) butterfly, would any ofyou happen to know the id?
Update: Danny Brown says it is a emale
PEARL CRESCENT, (P. tharos):
I heard a woodpecker in the prarie area but it was too well hidden. Also, I think the minks got scared off with the lawn mower that appeared....but the barn swallows had a lovely time, flying about all around, catching insects on the go as the grass blades flew out and up. The aerial ballet was beautiful to watch! Just didn't feel like lifting the camera, so...it's only words!
