September - 10 days in...

A little bit of clouds and rain today, but we did pretty well in the first 10 days of September. There have been some reports of darner-swarms as they move south. So, there's that.

Ocellated Darners had several observations (Geauga Co), joining Elusive Clubtails (Hamilton Co) as additional species for the year - now at 135. We also had some additional reports on Red Saddlebags (Coshocton Co) - so come on Striped Saddlebags and Variegated Meadowhawk!

Thanks to rasamoto (9/1) and monicap273 (9/9) for the Pike Co Eastern Amberwing submissions - these observations make Eastern Amberwing our sixth County-Complete species. Previously we had Fragile Forktail, Widow Skimmer, Blue Dasher, Common Whitetail, and Eastern Pondhawk as County-Complete. Just now we got Eastern Forktail | Scioto Co from monicap273! This makes only the fifth observation for Eastern Forktail in Scioto Co..

August is close to 5,400 new research grade observations. We're over 8,700 RG for July, and already at 1,300+ for August. Getting close to 31,000 observations for the year, the record is 32,570 from 2019 - I think we're in range if the weather holds up.

Back on September 7 there was a small field in West Creek Reservation in Cuyahoga County that had over 20 common green darners flying around. The wetlands nearby had more.
