The Barn Owl

The haunt of the night, this barn owl was particularly active on my last trip to the Quogue Wildlife. Usually, he sits in the same spot, staring in the same direction. This time, he was… well, in the same spot, but hopping around.

The Butterfly in the Bush

leave a comment »

This is a Cabbage White Butterfly (or, according to Wikipedia (unsourced), the “Imported Cabbage Worm”). Several of these were flitting about the yard.

In trying to find a comprehensive list of butterflies common to Long Island, I came across this NY Times article from 1913, regarding the “war” between nature and progress: Railroad Wars on Caterpillars that Delay Trains.
