Sighting for June 12, 2022

Robert Bell

Thompson Harbor State Park
Presque Isle County, MI

1:30PM to 4PM. Sunny. Low 60’s.
In 2018 I discovered Mottled Duskywings at this location. In the spring of 2020 the power company totally destroyed the habitat of New Jersey Tea which bloomed along the powerline. There was nothing to see in 2020. Last year the habitat had not recovered and I did not find any Mottleds. This year the New Jersey Tea has rebounded and I was able to find two and probably three Mottled Duskywings.

  • Spring Azure 2
  • Tawny Crescent 3
  • Little Wood-Satyr 1
  • Monarch 2
  • Dreamy Duskywing 1
  • Mottled Duskywing 2
  • Columbine Duskywing 3
