Afternoon walk at Breakneck Hill Conservation Land yielded very few butterflies:
6 Eastern Tailed-Blues
2 Great Spangled Fritillaries (worn)
20+ Cabbage White
8 Clouded Sulphur
3 Orange Sulphur
1 Common Ringlet
15 Pearl Crescent
After work, I drove back over to Heirloom Harvest CSA in Westboro in hopes of seeing a Dickcissel. This would be my 2nd attempt. Where one or two had been reported, now the report was up to five! This would be a life bird for me, and I did manage to see one, even though it was uncooperative about perching out in the open. Click here in order to see a good photo of a Dickcissel.
And the reality of my sighting (snort!):
I'll take it!
I also saw another Monarch while I was there, which was a treat! They are few and far between this year (except maybe down at Allens Pond).
And on the way out, I was treated to some Eastern Bluebirds hunting from their perches in the community gardens.
