Sisily Island Hills WMA
Catahoula Parish, LA

With a slight cool front having moved through the day before, temperatures were warm but not oppressive. We entered the WMA via its southwestern entrance, about 5 miles east of Harrisonburg. There was a large amount of purple bee balm blooming along the side of the roads within the unit, and those floweres brought out the butterflies in great numbers. We did not attempt to keep actual numbers, but we easily saw several hundred from 10:00 until about 2:45. We ended up seeing 29 species.

Harris’s Checkerspot adults out in numbers with a few males already rather faded or worn; a few pairs in mating behavior; also some females were egg-laying on Aster umbellatus (as in photo). A few skipper spp. were already almost gone from their first or only adult flight periods, such as Peck’s and Cobweb Skippers. A fairly short visit overall, 3 hrs. with excellent weather to this prime butterfly site of the region.

Lily Pond, Harriman St. Park

Weekly survey with Alan Wells, and with help today from Deborah Kral and Maha Katnani.
Regarding Little Wood-Satyrs, Glassberg discusses a typical second lesser emergence in late June following a strong emergence in May followed by a lull. That is exactly what happened here at Lily Pond, with our numbers today slightly less than our mid-May counts of 30+/-. Most individuals were very fresh. Some were very worn, evidently survivors of the first wave.
