Sighting for March 12, 2023

John and Nancy Crosby

Tabby Oaks, Shellman Bluff, GA 31331
McIntosh County, GA

78 degrees, sunny just before wind and high winds arrived. A timber or canebrake rattlesnake was across our path when we arrived so we took the long way around through the tall cane which is host plant for several species we saw. We haven’t seen a Juniper Hairstreak in this location for a couple of years and this is a very early date for White M Hairstreak which we don’t typically see until May in McIntosh County.
