Sighting for September 27, 2017

Robert Bell

Tawas Point State Park
Iosco County, MI

4 hours. Zero miles. A butterfly big sit.
Monarchs were migrating along the Lake Huron shoreline dunes. Originally intending to scope the lake for waterbirds this turned out to be the most exciting butterfly outing of the year for me.
All butterflies were observed from the deck on the boardwalk.

  • American Copper 1
  • Painted Lady 1
  • Red Admiral 1
  • Common Buckeye 3
