What is this skipper butterfly doing?

I photographed this skipper today on a pile of dog excrement. What was it doing there?

As far as I know, butterflies have no mouth parts with which to eat anything - just a proboscis that is only useful for sucking up nectar. Last time I checked, there is no nectar in dog poo. So what was it doing there?
