Had a hunch that I would hear a Woodcock Friday eve. sure enough, at the
low-light intensity, about 6:30.. I wandered outside and was rewarded
with two singing and aerial displaying males.   Ah spring.

Yesterday..on a walk on a dirt road to the Un Village dam we spotted a
season first butterfly. Nice tan band/border on the hind wing, dark,
with some minor spots.  So fun to see, a Mourning Cloak.
