Sighting for July 20, 2020

Renee Davis

Roosa Gap Fire Tower
Sullivan County, NY

A hairstreak of a day! I went in search of Edward’s Hairstreak and was not disappointed. Bailey Mitchell from the NYS DEC and I hiked 1.2 miles on the blue trail, north of the tower. I found Edward’s immediately by the tower and then sporadic for the next mile. All of the butterflies were very worn.
