State Gamelands 127 (Bradys Lake Road and nearby Route 423)
Monroe County, PA

Impressive numbers of skippers. All four wetland species (Dion, Mulberry Wing, Black Dash and Long Dash) were by the Bradys Lake Dam parking lot. Also very good numbers of tiger swallowtails and fritillaries. Could not find an Acadian Hairstreak—which was the target species (the wetland with willows and plenty of nectar sources but this is the third time I tried for it and cannot find one).
