Sighting for March 30, 2019

Edward Perry IV

Bull Creek WMA
Osceola County, FL

Turkey hunting was open and busy so Rachel and I did road shoulders only, driving and walking the short loop using Cross Road, as well as Cemetery Road. Temperatures started out cool but the leps picked up as the sun warmed things up. Lots of nectar with bull thistle, Nuttall’s thistle, Bidens alba, and tons of Daisy Fleabane. Car problems cut the day short; survey time 8:15 to 1 pm.
