Weekly count with Alan Wells.
This very fresh Appalachian Brown is possibly evidence of an early “partial second brood” cited in Glassberg’s BTB “Boston-New York-Washington Region.” See the phenogram on page 133. We counted 7 individuals at the pre-decline peak of the first brood on July 6, all worn and torn. We observed none the following week.
