On monday a woman called with a pipevine swallowtail in her yard in Middletown Springs and this morning Bill Shepard called with one in his yard in Thetford area. KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN!!!!!  Both have photos of them. These would be the first confirmed records for the state. There was one earlier record, but data for it was lacking.
