We have had a chance to get out to the Hill Country State Natural area and a couple of the local nature centers. While the birds have been scarce the insects are more cooperative.
By far the most common butterflies in the area are American Snouts. They are flying by the hundreds of thousands, and getting hit by the thousands. The local car washes are doing a brisk business, as a 30 mile trip can net several hundred dead Snouts on your car!
