White Butterflies UPDATE:

The white butterflies have been identified as Barred Sulphur (Eutrema daira), by our very own Parke Lewis, Biologist and Environmental Coordinator.

These Butterflies are ALL OVER the Mound. Stop by today to catch a glimpse!

Hank or Henry?

Our resident Heron, most recently named "Hank", may actually be a "Henry"! Regan McBride snapped a photo of a very personable Heron in 2006 who looks strikingly similar to Hank, but named him Henry. Below are two photos of the bird in question - is it the same bird? You Decide! Stop by Mound House, tell us your answer, and receive a lollipop!
