Breakneck Hill Conservation Land

It was gray and wet this morning, but the clouds parted a bit around noon, so I squeezed in a hike over at Breakneck Hill.  It was humid, but the meadows did not disappoint.  Oh, when I opened the garage door to leave, I was serenaded by this lovely Carolina Wren.  What a beautiful song!

Carolina Wren

This dead tree is right alongside the trail.  I'm glad they haven't removed it because the birds really love it!

Eastern Bluebird

Mr. Bluebird appears to be mid-molt.

Black Swallowtail

Butterfly season feels like it is winding down, although it was cloudy and rainy today, so maybe that was the real reason.  The full list of butterflies included:

Common Wood Nymph 3
Peck's Skipper 1
Eastern Tailed Blue 5
American Copper 1
Clouded Sulphur 1
Orange Sulphur 2
Black Swallowtail 2
