Update - Early October

A change in the weather, so an update.

2023 is now the year with the most research grade observations (over 35,750 on Oct 6). This is right at 200 more than 2022, the previous top year. While numbers are diminishing, we will likely be over 36,000 for the year. As the season winds down, please submit you photos asap.

We are stalled at 135 species for 2023. There may still be something that gets blown in, so keep an eye out for Darners and Saddlebags.

Franklin and Ashtabula Counties continue as most reported (3,000+), well ahead of #3 Lucas Co (1,800+) Paulding, Wood, Allen, and Defiance are below 100.

Montgomery County has the most species (76). Huron and Ottawa have the fewest (23).

Franklin, Cuyahoga, and Summit Counties all have more than 100 observers reporting. Paulding and Auglaize have just a single observer.

Forktails (Eastern and Fragile) are now the top 2 species, a switch from the recent years dominated by Eastern Pondhawk and Blue Dasher. Nine species have more than 1,000 records and Familiar Bluet may reach 1,000 as well. 16 species have 5 or fewer records, 7 species with only single records.
