Deliberated long and hard before identifying as this is a new bird for me.  I am positive I have it right as I got great looks through a scope.  They were eating blue berries off the Viburnum bush with the Catbirds.  Second time I’ve seen them this week.

Don Morse found a juvenile RED KNOT on the south beach of East Fork State Park today, 9/16/16. Several of us were able to enjoy it thanks to Don’s quick action. It was feeding with a juvenile Ruddy Turnstone on the east end of the beach by the floating dock. As far as any of us can tell, this is a county first sighting. The bird is very tolerant of observers.

We are seeing lots of Carolina Satyr butterflies right now at Crooked Run.  I first noticed them on Sept. 1 when I counted 21. Most of them right around our yard in the back of the Preserve. Yesterday we walked the yard and Preserve and counted 27! This is the northern edge of their range so they are usually hard to find in this area. Is anyone else seeing high numbers this year?
