MISSION BLUE ENJOYS
SOME FLITTING FAME

Mission Blue Butterfly
Adult mission blue butterflies only emerge for a few months in the
spring, and each individual only lives for about a week. But
we’re shining the spotlight on this quarter-sized butterfly all
year. Learn why our 2011 Species of the Year deserves some serious
superstar treatment—and how you can help save this extraordinary
endangered species.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR AT GGRO

Jenn and Mike Armer
Golden Gate Raptor Observatory volunteers Jenn Cutler and Mike Armer
spend fall weekends in a hawk blind, hidden from the raptors they
watch, catch, band, and release. The couple began dating in 2003,
right
around when Mike began volunteering for the GGRO. They have
volunteered
for the GGRO for a combined 2,500 hours over the past eight years.
and Mike became engaged in September 2009—while banding hawks,
course. Love is truly “blind!” Read on for their full love story.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that birds of prey perform courtship rituals just as
humans do-to attract mates and cement the bonds between the
pairs? Red-tailed hawks soar side by side, legs fully extending, and
calling excitedly. Great horned owls perform a duet, enticing one
another with a series of back-and-forth hoots. Northern harriers are
the Rogers and Astaire of raptor romance as they fly a dazzling set of
helical and loop flights, culminating in the male dropping a dead
mouse from up high, and the female-dozens of feet
below-rolling upside-down to snag the morsel in mid-flight.
