Massachusetts Butterfly Big Year update 1

As the early spring flyers are winding down, it looks like I've missed two of them: Hessel's Hairstreak and Early Hairstreak. I am also in danger of missing Cobweb Skipper, as the usual site for these has been decimated by the power company doing maintenance. I've got a few other places to try for these, but I'm running out of time. I'm otherwise in good shape for those species that fly in June, with my total now at 39 species.

This post caused us to look up the host plants for cobweb skippers and to wonder (based on your mention of the powerlines) how big (or small) a tract with predominantly little and big bluestem and the like is required for a population.

It would seem that there's plenty of potential habitat for Cobweb Skippers here, yet there are very few places in the state that butterfly club members have reported them in recent years.
