2007 FIELD NOTES: For the second time in the 15-year history of this count, it was held in late May. Due to drought (rainfall 7" below normal) nectar scarce. Butterflies extremely scarce even when nectar was available. Phaon Crescent (after 2 year absence) was found at same beach site on Debordieu Island. Feared our second count (Francis Marion National Forest -- to be held the following day) would also be a "bust," which was NOT the case, thankfully.
2007 Weather: 81 degrees F. 5-10 mph. 100% clear / sunny.
