	On 13 April, I saw three _Nymphalis antiopa_ (Mourning Cloak)
flying near Fairbanks, Alaska. Temperature was 50F. Judging by the
conditions at that site, my guess is that they had been out at least
since 11 April. From 1966 to the present, first sightings for this
species here have ranged from 5 April to 25 April--so this is a bit
earlier than average.
