This thread is reminding me that I saw a Milbert’s Tortoiseshell on the Statehouse lawn on March 30. Gotta get it in eButterfly still, Ken!

SO jealous as I am stuck inside today. Nice work everyone! 

If you can, would love to see all this great phenology data as complete checklists on eButterfly!

Had my first of Year Mourning Cloak near Snake Mountain in Addison this morning. Didn't manage to get a picture, though.
