Actually, the genus should be Salix or some species of willow. Nice sightings on a beautiful day.

  On Saturday, 4/19, Bill Banks and I visited Fresh Meadows Sanctuary where we were able to find a total of 5 species of butterflies.  The list for the day is as follows:

  Cabbage White (5)
  Juniper Hairstreak (3) (Our first of the year)
  Spring Azure (1) (Lucia color form)
  Eastern Comma (1)
  Mourning Cloak (1)

  The Juniper Hairstreaks, Eastern Comma and Mourning Cloak were all nectaring on flowers of a species of tree in the genus Falix. The flowers looks like a golden-yellow pussy willow.  (Tree ID courtesy of a phone conversation with Andy Brand.)
