August 28th - Fog, No Fog, Fog, No Fog!

That was just the kind of day it was today at the park - fog, no fog, fog, no fog...  Just after 1:00 PM our only bird of the day flew over, it was a juvenile Broad-winged Hawk.  Even it was in and out of the fog as you can see in the photo below.  Crazy humidity today as well.

Can we reach 100 birds by the end of the month?  Time will tell.

In Butterfly news, I had a Great Spangled Fritillary land only 6 feet away from me in the grass over the fence and our good friend Howie Herscovitch got a Pipevine Swallowtail on the Butterfly Bush near the main garden a little later in the day.  That's 2 new butterfly species for the Park and our Fall List, of course.

Lee sent along this photo that she took this morning while at the park:
