The butterflies have arrived in my area! And we have an unknown hawk.
On March 16, 2016, I took this picture of my first Mourning Cloak for this year at Muir Creek. It's name comes from a similarity to a cloak worn in mourning. There also are some at Swan Lake.
For the ABC Wednesday and the letter "M". Another Mourning Cloak below from last year.
Also arriving soon in the area are the following butterflies. Some are already here! I can't wait till they all come home and I can see them again!

We have had a mystery hawk at Swan Lake! He is very dark and he has white on his tail. At first a birder said he may be a Harlan's Hawk. I think now the consensus is that he is a dark-morph Red- tailed Hawk. Very pretty! Here is an article on how to identify the dark Hawk.
