Location: Gilmore Ponds & “Big Pond”

Other Observers: Charlie Saunders, Bob Lacker

Charlie Saunders, Bob Lacker and I walked through Gilmore Ponds and the Big Pond area west of Bypass four. Birding was slow, but wherever there was smartweed, and there’s a lot of smartweed in these locations, there were Bronze Copper butterflies. There were dozens of them between the two sites. An adult Bald Eagle on a dead tree near Bypass 4 at Big Pond was a nice treat.
