Sighting for April 9, 2013

Allan R. Loudell

Driving along Shipley Road, Brandywine Hundred north of Wilmington
New Castle County, DE

My first butterfly sighting of 2013… Very tardy, because of chilly, windy weather (until this week!)… Last year, saw my first Cabbage White around this location by March 12th!

In a typical year, first Cabbage Whites observed in range of March 28th—April 1st.

Delaware Nature Society reported Cabbage Whites a few days ago; also Mourning Cloaks & Question Marks!
