Sighting for May 10, 2020

John and Nancy Crosby

Captains Cove off Priester Rd & Old Shellman Road just North of Intersection with Priester Road
McIntosh County, GA

We finally found our targeted Striped Hairstreak! All 4 were on the Sparkleberry on Old Shellman Road just North of the Intersection with Priester Road near Shellman Bluff, GA. Other Hairstreaks were pretty evenly distributed. We like the Captain’s Cove location as you can drive all the way to the cul de sac & park where the Clusters of Sparkleberry Bushes are so quick checks are easier. But all the hairstreaks on Old Shellman Bluff Road were within 1/4 mile from the Intersection of Priester Road.
