Sighting for May 24, 2018

Henry Kindervatter

Plainsboro Preserve
Middlesex County, NJ

I arrived at 2:50 pm and stayed until 5:30 pm. It was in the mid-80’s, sunny and there was a continuous breeze of about 10 mph with occasional, slight gusts to about 15 mph. Those running the Preserve have de-emphasized wildflower plantings and as a result, there were very few butterflies present. The male Zabulon skippers were the only ones that appeared in normal numbers for this location and time.

  • Cabbage White 1
  • Eastern Tailed-Blue 1
  • Pearl Crescent 2
  • Zabulon Skipper 12
