Cheicante said he chose Swan Harbor for the national butterfly count conducted through the North American Butterfly Association for several reasons.
"...the Route 40 corridor provides many public access points with great nectaring sources which provide good viewing and counting," Cheicante told Patch. "Southern Harford also has an increased species variety given its placement within both piedmont and coastal plain habitat."
In addition to Swan Harbor, Cheicante told Patch he visits Anita Leight, Perryman, Lakeside and the Havre de Grace toll house area during the day of his count, which takes place annually in June or July.
