Sighting for July 3, 2017

Steven Glynn

Horseshoe Bend Park
Hunterdon County, NJ

Extensive time covering areas accessed from south and north entrances.

Cloudless Sulphur seen just over fence line to west of dog park, in private/"do not enter" area. Large, bright and obvious.

Difficulty with areas bordering the dog park as landowner was cutting fields with a large combine cutter. Gray Comma seen in one of these cutting fields only briefly, before retreating to cover.

Tough watching the cutting and seeing Meadowlarks, Bobolinks and other birds flying out of the grassland being cut.
