The earliest record for West Virginia Whites  at McCullough Mile around Woods in North Bennington seems to be April 7: 2008 & 2012 (Kevin H. found last year's first), by April 25th 
I usually am seeing fair numbers: 8 +  The flight tapers off in Mid - May, although my records are spotty on the May side. 

I looked for E. Pine Elfins at 2 spots in Pownal on Sunday , but saw no butterflies at all. 
Did see a Cabbage White flutter by coming home from work in Bennington yesterday.

Good Luck on the Big Year... Hopefully we won't get prolonged periods of rain or dry.

10 years of data. Nice! What's it look like? 
I had WVW, two of them, at Equinox preserve yesterday. It's still a bit early there. Could use some rain to bring out the spring ephemeral flowers more.

Also 2 Mourning Cloak.

Latest Emergence (according to my records ), in  the 10 years I have been keeping records at this site.

Yay Spring!
