Sighting for June 19, 2016

Raven Anthony Squire

Ogden End Community Garden, Jersey City
Hudson County, NJ

A resident living nearby the Garden rears Tiger Swallowtails on Meadow rue and organic parsley. He invited me to his flat and I observed 8 larva and 12 pupa. From the vantage point of his balcony overlooking Palisades sloping woodland, I saw Tiger Swallowtails flutter above tree tops.
Probably the swallowtails I saw in the Garden were ones he had bred in captivity and released.

  • Eastern Tiger Swallowtail 5
  • Cabbage White +12
  • Eastern Tailed-Blue 1
