Marathon Petroleum Lincoln Trail College wildlife habitat. Observed numerous swamp milkweed plants and common milkweed plants. No eggs / cats observed on the common milkweed. 6 cats observed on the swamp milkweed. Great photos were obtained. The common milkweed is in the seed pod stage and is no longer blooming. Swamp milkweed is just now starting to bloom. I suspect this location will be a very good monarch habitat for the next couple of weeks. Also observed 3 large northern water snakes, tussock milkweed caterpillars, 2 wild turkeys, a red admiral butterfly, a viceroy, leafhoppers, praying mantis, black eyed susan, 100s of young cottonwood trees, blackberry briars, persimmon trees Canada Geese, black swallowtails, spicebush swallowtails, Easter Tiger Swallowtails, and bee balm.
