Scouting for the NABA count held on the 6th. Did not get the Hoary Edge (which was very fresh), or the Hobomok Skipper (which was very worn) the day of the count. Did not get the Black Sw here either the day of the count and it was an extremely fresh female. Bad year for Monarchs but I assume others have noticed that…
