Red Admirals Are Out in Central Iowa

April 28, 2015

The Red Admirals are out in central Iowa!  I saw the first one on April 17, but then it got cold for the next week and I didn't see any more.  But then we had a beautiful sunny day in Story County on Sunday, the 26th, and a group of us saw three flying around at East Peterson Park in the early afternoon.  Then yesterday on the 27th, I spotted three more while surveying the Iowa State University campus on another bright, sunny afternoon after 5 p.m.  So who else has been seeing them in Iowa or elsewhere around the Midwest?  Please keep us posted!
