June 6: Help Improve the Celery Farm's Trails
Clapper Rail near Mill Creek Point Today

Monday Mystery 052515 Answered

On Monday, I asked folks to identify the three insects bugs and a bird in these three photos. (Yes, it was a slightly trick question -- the bird had a spider in its mouth.)

Long-time Celery Farm supporter Joe Lafferty responded:

1. Female Common Whitetail Dragonfly
2. Chipping Sparrow
3. One of the orb weaving spiders?
4. Horace's Duskywing butterfly

I had thought the little butterfly (below) was a Wild Indigo Duskywing, but Joe may well be right.  Congrats, Joe!
