Sighting for October 22, 2015

Mike Reese

Coal Dock Park, Port Washington
Ozaukee County, WI

While birding this area in the morning I saw that it looked like good butterfly habitat so when it was nearly 60 degrees and sunny I stopped back here. I was quite surprised do see this many butterflies. This is the latest I have ever counted double-digit Monarchs in WI! Also saw 5 white-form female sulphurs.

  • Clouded Sulphur 32
  • Orange Sulphur 6
  • Painted Lady 1
  • Monarch 12
