Yes, it's winter, but we've had a couple of nice warm, sunny days. As a result, there have been a number of critters on the move. Today, while birding with some folks who were visiting from the western part of NC, we got a treat. An American Snout butterfly landed on a branch right in front of us. Snouts are not a butterfly that I see very often so I was quite delighted!
