Yes, and they are very fond of clovers...Look in dry flower fields with a lot of bluestem, especially in woodland clearings...and be looking now...

To let people know, Leonards skippers can be found in Little Bluestem patches. These don't need to be very big either. They also like purple flowers for nectaring. I have seen them on a species of thisttle with large flowers that grows about knee high. Kevin P.S. Sylvia there is alot of Bluestem in Windham Co.
