Winged Visitors Delight Westerly
A number of bright, colorful visitors dropped by the Westerly recently. They seldom sat, preferring to dash here and there. They were Red Admiral Butterflies. Beautiful little black butterflies with a red stripe on each wing, some with little white polka dots. We seniors sure wish we had their exuberance and energy. A few have chosen to stay on with us...even stopping by to sit at our picnic table. On Saturday the 5th, another colorful visitor was seen in the bushes near the North Building of the Westerly...It was a Black and White Warbler! What a sight in his fashionable black and white feathers, he has to be seen to be believed. Redheaded Woodpeckers by the dozen were also viewed in the neighbors yard, males courting their intended girlfriends were a joy to watch.
This proves you don't have to leave home to see something outstanding, just look around.
