Signs of Spring? ...

Lark Buntings (Calamospiza melanocorys) are beginning to flock again. This morning there were 15 to 20 of them at the NW corner of Marathon Motel.
Some of the males are even beginning to show a bit more black. Like the leading edge of this guy's wing.


He even began to sing, before they all flew off. Listen closely:

Butterflies are beginning to show up:
Monarch
Pipevine Swallowtail
Variegated Fritillary (worn adult)







These photos taken from my personal photo stock.

I wonder what species I'll see this afternoon?
Tomorrow?

Speaking of tomorrow, join us in the courtyard around 7:00 PM for Friday Night Black-lights.
That is.... black-lighting for moths.
