A lot of it growing along this trail.
Out and about yesterday came across several Giant Tiger Swallow Tails (Papilio cresphontes) @ Basin Harbor.VT.
Turkey Lane, Panton VT. 3/2/13
a bad picture of a pair, seen at this location several consecutive days now by other observers
Compare size and coloration to the Great Black-backed Gull to its left. Note the streaky head and mantle and and dark line through the eye. Not seen in these pictures are its pink legs.
If accepted, this would be the second record of the species in the state of Vermont.
Crappy picture. Female, light brown head and breast, paler flanks and back. Triangular head shape with a long dark bill.
There was a second one as well.
