Sorry for any cross-posting.  I wanted give folks a heads up about Vanessa
cardui.  I was out doing some field work in north San Diego County today and
observed over 500 cardui heading in a northerly direction.  We might be in
another dispersal.  It may not be as great as 2001 but it is worth keeping
your eyes open.  I am asking folks from Orange, Riverside and LA Counties as
well as Arizona to keep your eyes open to see if you are all observing the
same things.  If we get a second emergence by the middle of April, we could
have another pretty good movement north and northeast.
