Observation notes: Time: ~7:00 p.m. Weather: Warm, fairly calm, and mostly cloudy. Habitat: Drainage canal supporting common milkweed, large trees, and various other vegetation. Notes: Several Red Admirals were swirling around erratically within the wooded area next to the canal. They were quite active, despite the weather and time of day. A couple of them landed, allowing for a close approach to confirm identification.
