May 15 Update

With our data we can keep track of the first observations for each species.

We are in the middle of the big spring increase in species diversity. As it turns out, May 17 (soon!) is our single biggest day of the year on emergence/arrival - with 8 species (see Mar 05 journal for complete list) documented.

Those 5/17 species are:

Northern Spreadwing
Rusty Snaketail
Cyrano Darner
Sedge Sprite~
Elfin Skimmer
Yellow-sided Skimmer
Sweetflag Spreadwing
Slender Spreadwing
Delta-spotted Spiketail

~ Note that we just had observations of Sedge Sprite on 5/14! New early flight for Sedge.

We are up to 31 species for the year, from over 100 observers. Observations now in 60 counties, including 5 new County Records. Unfortunately no observations yet in the priority counties of Van Wert, Auglaize, Hardin, Monroe, Mercer, Defiance, Columbiana, Gallia, Lawrence, Seneca, Crawford, or Fulton.
