Phenology Note: March 17, 2011

Today, in Northampton County, I saw my first Eastern Comma butterfly of the year.  This species is often very active once the temperatures reach into the 60s.  Commas are often abundant in sunny wooded areas where they can be found on tree trunks especially near areas of leaking sap.
