Red Admiral butterflies were all the talk of the butterfly and bird list-serves two and three weeks ago.
The understory at Magee is also early this year. Those warm temps and plentiful degree days pushed our flora into full leaf at a record pace. It is not just the trees that leafed out, but the vegetation on the ground is well advanced too.
They are about 1/4 inch in size now, but it wont be but a few days and they will double in weight and size.
