I can't seem to get the spelling corrected on my comment on Mourning Cloak. There is no e at the end. 

Comment by John Klymko on April 29, 2013 at 4:49pm

That is an interesting record Anne. It makes me wonder if this could be an individual that overwintered. I just checked eButterfly and there haven't been any records of American Lady from anywhere else in Canada this year, and you would expect southern Ontario, which is well represented on eButterfly, to get records of migrants like this before us..

Anne excellent news and nice image! Do you know how to start a new discussion ... like to add this instead of a comment here? Better in a new discussion so any replies are all tied together with it. Not sure if you know or not. If not ... right above the white "comment box" above the words "Comment Wall" you will see "Add a discussion" ... that will do it. Just trying to help :)

Two Mourning Cloak Butterflies found April 28th. Lois McGibbon managed a photo of one at Caledonia Gorge lookout (Crooked creek rd) and I saw one as I was driving at the corner of Midway Rd going to Harvey. In Lower Coverdale today April 29th, I have an American Lady which was here yesterday as well.AMERICAN LADY

Wow, Jimmy, good point! Let's just see what the next few weeks hold then. That is an encouraging note, for sure.

Comment by Jimmy Dee on March 2, 2013 at 7:23pm

Imagine, the first 2012 butterfly sighting on BNB was 18 days from today's date ... was March 20 2012.

First Viceroy - June 20th @ Rothesay.  Man, can those things ever fly long & fast ... had to 'get on my bicycle' for even a distant shot.

Comment by Anne Marsch on June 20, 2012 at 6:51pm

June 20, Found 1 Viceroy in Riverview, Bronze Coppers and had a second sighting of White Admiral in my yard in Lower Coverdale.
