Below a short video of the single remaining offspring of the 4 chicks hatched by the PIPL couple that nest most westward on the western extension of the spit. The other 3 chicks were probably lost to an extremely high tide. We saw this bird fly, so he is now a fledgling (or juvenile):
Two photos of a Spicebush Swallowtail today on our Buddleia. Notice the greenish tint on the doral hindwing--this probably indicates it is a male.
