Sighting for October 10, 2020

Sharon & Wade Wander

Wallkill River NWR, Vernon Township
Sussex County, NJ

Breezy, in low 70s. All of the four male and 2 female Bronze Coppers were quite active. Both females appeared worn whereas 3 of the males looked quite fresh with the fourth worn. We did not see any of the usual host plants (docks), but plants in the genus Polygonum are abundant here and may serve as host plants for this colony.
