Nyack; Hook Mt.
Rockland County, NY

A new earliest date for Falcate Orangetip in NY state (previously, at same location, Mar. 30, 2002), by just one day. The numbers seen this day indicate they had emerged some days earlier however, likely due to the record heat in the entire region in the previous week or so.

  • Cabbage White few
  • Falcate Orangetip 20+
  • Clouded Sulphur 1
  • Spring Azure few
  • Eastern Comma 2
  • Mourning Cloak 4+
