Ft. Tilden, Riis-Neponsit, and other Rockaways parks
Queens County, NY

E. Tiger slightly unexpected at these sites; Coral Hairstreaks at dogbanes and just-opening orange milkweed (A. tuberosa); Red-banded HS was worn; fresh brood of E. Tailed-Blue just out, but Am. Copper not yet in summer brood there; 1 very fresh Variegated Frit., a female in site where seen in most years; good year so far for QuestionMark thus not a surprise, a fresh summer/dark form; Red Admiral also having fairly good year so far; Com. Buckeye is truly almost common all over this area, a big year for them; summer brood of Little Wood-Satyr out nicely; also a good showing of Swarthy Skipper - locally, not everywhere! - and Delaware Skippers looked fresh as can be, just out, perhaps and always good to see! Many plants, including nectar plants, in profuse bloom, and poison-ivy also very healthy all around. (Sought out Common Checkered-Skipper, but one area where seen prior years was mowed off, and also with some sort of demolition in progress. A stop was made in Kings Co. NY (Brooklyn) at Floyd Bennett Field, but rather slow so moved on to the Rockaway peninsula’s greenspaces, outer barrier beach areas & natural habitats still in fairly good shape after all these years, where I went to look. Arrived at Jamaica Bay Refuge too late in day for a thorough look around; at that latter location, such species as Amer. Snouts have been regular this year, near Hackberry trees, that is. Weather - sun & clouds & very warm.

A fantastic day butterflying. We were out for 4.75 hours with temperature starting at 79 and ending at 95. We saw a Zebra Swallowtail which is not usually seen this far north. Also saw a Tawny Emperor which is seldom seen in the forest. Tons of Painted Ladies. Fun to watch them swarm the button bush.

Surveyed along entrance road past check-in station and loop east a short distance from 2pm to 6:45 with about 2 hours of rain in the middle. The butterflies came out when it cleared and dried up! Most everything was utilizing the blue mistflower in the roadside ditches, also winged loosestrife, prairie clover, rattlesnake master, shrubby false buttonweed, and Bidens alba. This was the most Berry’s Skippers we have seen in one short outing. EPerry & RWarner

Rachel and I went out for a day of butterfly photography and fun but the count turned pretty serious when we started seeing some rare skippers. We surveyed entrance road and the shorter loop using Crossroad. Major nectar is blue mistflower, winged loosestrife, frogfruit, Bidens alba, and Carolina redroot. Loop east also has some prairie clover (Dalea sp.) blooming in patches near the bend at the pines. Near the end of the day we reached a recently burned zone that holds a lot of promise for a fall bloom. There we found the dotted skippers, each sitting on a narrow-leafed sunflower blossom. Overcast but hot; survey from 8 am to 3:15 pm. A good time was had by all.

I arrived at 11:30 am and stayed until 2:15 pm. It was hot (86-90º F) and sunny. Entering across from Blackwell Mills Road, I looped around the wooded area toward Federal City Road following the cut paths. Shortly after arriving, I observed a fly-by of a Cloudless sulphur and decided to count the butterflies seen today, as that is a very rare sighting for me in this area. The variety of butterflies out today was amazing for this part of the park! Not only that, but I observed 25 Monarchs (including three mating pairs) and a second Cloudless sulphur on this trip.

American Snout again laying eggs on the hackberry. First two AS caterpillars found today on it. This is a new caterpillar for me to see in the yard. Question Mark back for the first time in quite a while and looks like it’ll be laying eggs on the hackberry also. Now have several Cloudless Sulphur chrysalis along with the cats and the CS laying more eggs on the partridge pea plants.
