Here are your CLUB colorways for the month:
For The Ornithology Club, we have the ‘Rufous Tailed Hummingbird’, and coordinating semisolid ‘Rufous Red’. For The Ornithology Club, we have the ‘Rufous Tailed Hummingbird’, and coordinating semisolid ‘Rufous Red’. The Rufous-Tailed hummingbird is a medium-sized hummingbird that breeds from East-Central Mexico, through Central America and Colombia, east to western Venezuela and south through western Ecuador to near the border with Peru. I am famiiar with this hummingbird, as I grew up in Central and South America! So this one is a childhood favorite.
For the Entomology Club we have the ‘Giant Leopard Moth’ and brilliant blue coordinating semisolid ‘Leopard Moth Blue’. The Giant Leopard Moth is dramatic: It is a pure white, covered with brilliant blue and turquoise spots ringed with black. The Giant Leopard Moth is similar to the Rufous Hummingbird in that it ranges far and wide: From Ontario, Canada, to the Southern and Eastern United States, through New England, and south from Mexico to Panama!
For the Botany Club we have one of my favorite local wildflowers: ‘Hopniss’ and it’s coordinating semisolid ‘Hopniss Flower’. Known locally as the Ground Nut, the roots of the Hopniss vine bear round tubers like strings of pearls. These tubers are edible with some simple preparation (I like them boiled, peeled, then fried) and were a significant part of the Native summer/fall diet of this place we now call New England.
