Birds and Butterflies!

Deana and I went to Grande Digue and Cap Pele yesterday looking hoping for some interesting finds. We didn’t see a lot of species (6) but recorded 4.

Quite common in a couple of places was the Cabbage White rarely seen this year around here. We did luck out a n saw a Bronze Copper near Grande Digue,

next to a coastal fresh water marsh. Still hoping to see this species again in Miramichi. In Cap Pele we had some very co-operative Black swallowtails,
previously this year I have only had a glimpse at one. We had dinner in Sackville. At the waterfowl park we saw approximately 300 Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs,
all standing around, mostly on one leg, enjoying the evening sun. Here and there we saw quite a few birds of prey, but I find it hard to look for birds and butterflies at the same time!
