Female Black Witch

Hi Paul,
Thanks for sending your photo of a female Black Witch.  We have read that they are now naturalized in the areas of the U.S. closest to the Mexican border, but most U.S. sightings are from migratory individuals that fly north during the Mexican rainy season and appear in September.  The migration is quite curious since they do not really survive the northern winters.
