American Snout

Libytheana carinenta, was on another bush, that had been covered with them a couple of days earlier. I guess it get’s its name from the long “beak-like labial palps”, described in the Peterson guide.

Also saw a Black-throated Sparrow: two prominent white stripes on the side of the face, black throat speckling into a white breast, grey-brown crown, tail with white edges, fluttering low in bushes or hopping on the ground.
