Yesterday a Thrasher parent ate the Spicebush swallowtail progeny on the bushes that we grow specifically to breed Spicebush babies. It breaks my heart and now I know why butterfly people remove the caterpillars and chrysalis when they see them and put them into protective screened containers.

Thank you for your comment. I can empathize with you!

Last year, pretty sure it was mockingbirds that wiped out all of the tiger swallowtail caterpillars on my parsley. I only grow parsley for the butterflies.

Sorry about the mockingbirds wiped them out! I'm missing the gulf frits, too!
