Our walk this morning also turned up four Solitary Sandpipers, the first Purple Martin youngsters that I have seen out on the wing this year and fledgling Barn and Northern Rough-winged Swallows. An adult Black-crowned Night Heron was probably a migrant on the wander. I heard a second hand rumor that the Black-bellied Whistling-duck might be in the state park - it's worth a look!

Star find in the butterfly world of late was this Great Spangled Fritillary in Tom Reed's garden at Reeds Beach on July 5th. Those tatty wings seem to tell a tale, this individual has travelled a fair distance... [photo by Tom Reed].
