Snow Buntings and a Clouded Sulphur were both sighted at the Nature Center today. How strange to see a butterfly and visitors from the arctic in the same day! The group 5 Snow Buntings were seen in the parking lot this morning and the lone sulphur was seen visiting Johnny Jump-ups in the community garden. A mixed flock of Cedar and Bohemian Waxwings were also sighted flying over the Center.
Another surprise visitor was seen at the end of the day - a Northern Shrike. We were fortunate to watch the shrike catch and devour a dragonfly!
