07/06/12 – Vassar Farm – Full Sighting List

Monarch

It’s been too long since I’ve been able to get out and hike without a care in the world.  Despite the heat, I was enjoying every minute at Vassar Farm.

Vassar Farm rewarded me with stellar looks at a variety of birds and butterflies this time around.  I also had a surprise sighting – something I’ve never seen at the farm previously.  More on that later.

For now, here’s my full sighting list (birds & butterflies).  Photos are on the way!
