Sighting for July 4, 2020

Karlo and Alison Mirth

Hurd Corners
Ulster County, NY

Hurd Corners is located at the intersection of the Appalachian Trail and Route 22, just north of Pawling. Rich Kelly told us about this place as a reliable spot for Meadow Fritillaries. We managed to see three; a bonus sighting was two Dion Skippers - what a year it has been for Dions in NYS.
4:00 - 5:00 PM, sunny, mid-80s.
