66 degrees, partly sunny from 11:40 to 1:35 p.m. Was only able to get a quick shot off on a Dusted Skipper. Cloudywings were numerous. I saw at least a dozen. Took only time to positively I.D. four of them. Surprising to me that Southerns outnumbered Northern. Other highlights here were Porcupine, Rose Breasted Grosbeak, and Black billed Cuckoo.
