On the morning of Saturday, August 13th, I visited Stratford Point where I
found the following:

Black Swallowtail (9)
Cabbage White (9)
Clouded Sulphur (1)
Orange Sulphur (25)
Eastern Tailed-Blue (8)
Pearl Crescent (3)
Common Buckeye (5)
Monarch (5)
Swarthy Skipper *(22)*
Zabulon Skipper (2)
Dun Skipper (1)

Patrick Comins, who was leading a bird walk at this site, found a
Variegated Fritillary that I missed.

Most butterflies were found in the vicinity of the headquarters building
and the main path leading north.  These are the areas being watered.

The Swarthy Skippers were most easiiy observed perching on red clover
