Tuesday Tidbits

I stopped by Reid CA for a brief look after work today for about 15 minutes.  A few butterflies were working the Indian Hemp.  I finally saw a couple of Edwards' Hairstreaks this time.

A few Banded were around too.

I also saw one rather worn Southern Hairstreak, more appropriately called a Northern Oak Hairstreak.

Lots of Northern Broken-Dash were finally flying.

Monkey Flower is about to bloom, but I came across this jewelweed (Spotted Touch-me-not) which is really nice upon close inspection.

Weather was about perfect today, and it was a beautiful morning.  I stop by Stewart Wetland each morning, as habitat is excellent for shorebirds.  Southbound shorebirds included 3 Lesser Yellowlegs and a couple of Least Sandpipers.
On of these days, something good has to show up!

  1. I stopped at Reid for about 30 minutes mid-afternoon on Sunday and the patch was really quiet....no hairstreaks at all. Guess they were having their Sunday afternoon nap.
