Temps have been increasing all week, and today (3/6/15), with a  high of 77
degrees F,  I found species #11 for the year at a Goleta ranch pond, a
California Dancer. I was surprised as I've only seen this species a couple
of times before at this location. Also present today: Pacific Forktails,
Arroyo and Familiar Bluets, Cardinal Meadowhawk, California and Blue-eyed
Darners, and Variegated Meadowhawk.

Today I went to Alum Rock Park (Santa Clara County) to look for a butterfly - 
Sonoran Blue. I found that, but also found a Variegated Meadowhawk and Red Rock 
Skimmer! I didn't see a Red Rock Skimmer all of last year so was surprised to 
find one in February at this location.

Another good half hour at the pond today (Goleta, SBA). Saw my first of
season Cardinal Meadowhawks (3), one day later than my FOS last year. Also
lots of evidence of CA Darners today (estimated at 5-10 ; they move so
fast!), plus Common Green Darners, Pacific Forktails, and Arroyo and
Familiar Bluets.

Today (2/24/15) at Nagasawa Park in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, I saw the
following:

Pacific Forktail - many, covering the wide range of variation due to sex and
age
Variegated Meadowhawk - 1
Mosaic Darner - 1, blue, seen briefly in flight, likely an early California
Darner

Hello everyone,
Many of you knew Gary Suttle thru our blitzes and this group.
I just heard back from his son....he's in hospice care and unable to 
even answer emails now (his son is handling his email). I thought I'd 
let those who knew him know....his email is Gary Suttle 
.
Sadly, Kathy

The Filigree Skimmer was just at this backyard pond for a few moments 
before it left. It has not returned. The images were submitted to 
Odonata Central: 429680 

 

Hope someone can find it again!!

Interesting! Yesterday we had 8 Snow Geese flying in V formation fly 
over our McCloud home....heading NORTH! I guess this is Spring??

This brings us up to 11 species reported for all of Calif.

Today (16 February) I had the following odonates at the Ogier Ponds, old borrow 
pits along Coyote Creek north of Morgan Hill, Santa Clara County (10:30 to 
14:00, 64 to 75 degrees F): 


Bluet sp. - 1 teneral
Pacific Forktail - 8
California Darner - 1 male
Common Green Darner - 3 males
Red Rock Skimmer - 1 male; this individual was moving northward in direct 
flight. Although this species occurs along creeks on both sides of the Santa 
Clara/Coyote Valley, the only other individual of this species I've seen on the 
valley floor was an obvious migrant well away from aquatic habitat. I suspect 
that today's individual was also a migrant. This was my 30th odonate species at 
the Ogier Ponds. 

Variegated Meadowhawk - 16 (including 3 ovipositing tandem pairs)

The Variegated Meadowhawks and Pacific Forktails were not particularly 
surprising, but I was not expecting to see the other species on this early 
date.

Thanks!
It's looking like some species are able to take advantage of good 
weather when it's here, while others have 'clocks' that tell them when 
it's time.
This is just my personal observation. Glad you're seeing an ode, I'm 
envious! None up here in Siskiyou County yet.

Common Green Darner is recorded year-round elsewhere in California, but 
the known date span in Monterey County was apparently 14 May to 3 Dec.  
Today I saw a male in flight along the creek at Laguna Grande Park, 
Seaside, MTY.  This extends the 'early' date forward in this county by 3 
months.  Today it was 75 degrees when the darner was flying -- a local 
record, I believe, for this date.

Today (1/23/15), at Nagasawa Park in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, I saw what I
believe to be a teneral Pacific Forktail.

I took a poor quality photo using my iPhone through my binoculars:

I believe the earliest I have seen this species at this location previously
is February 4 (2011).

Humboldt County California-- way up north-- we always seem to have a few
all winter long- at least for the last 5 years I've been looking
(Trinity/Klamath/Mad River) and the reports we've gotten from Tony in this
region (Eel/Van Duzen River) for the past 2 winters; where they go during
winter storms and cold nights, I have not a clue.  A couple of years ago, I
received a beautiful specimen from a friend of mine who found it on the
snow (Trinity watershed) and it was positioned as if it had been sunning
there. They seem to disappear during the Feb/March hard frosts and reappear
in mid summer.  I think _some_ overwinter here and/or stop migrating south
here while others continue on, but that's just the sense I'm getting.

This morning, I got a report that there were "lots of dragonflies at the
Mad River Hatchery settling ponds during my walk at lunch yesterday", so I
went to check it out.  I got there a little late (at 3pm), I didn't find
any at the ponds, but managed to find one Variegated Meadowhawk on the wing
in a backwater region of the river in a calm warm windless spot- it was
either a juvenile or a female as there was no red color to it at all, but I
never got a great look at it- the winter variegated meadowhawks seem very
flighty/shy compared to the summer ones. The river is ridiculously low
again this year- fishermen are lining the river and they can walk all the
way across with their waders-- it should be several feet above their heads
at this time of year.

I sure wish we could figure out their dispersal/wintering strategies....

I'm in the next county inland from Monterey County, San Benito.  I usually see 
variegated meadowhawks through the fall and then not again until late spring or 
early summer.  I assumed that they were killed off by heavy freezes. 
 However, on the Pinnacles Christmas Bird Count (Jan 3, 2015) I saw several, 
despite low temps the preceding several nights in the mid to high 20s.  None 
were mature males.  In fact, I've never seen a mature male late in the season.

This website has not been updated in a few years, but I thought I'd 
mention these winter reports from the current winter of 2014-15

First, I got this email

Second, on the Monterey Peninsula Christmas Bird Count on 28 Dec, David 
Styer showed me a photo he had taken at Fort Ord SB that date, and it 
was a male Variegated Meadowhawk.

Lastly, on 5 Jan 2015, at a small rain puddle in what we call the 
"Virgin St. patch" at Laguna Grande park on the Seaside-City of Monterey 
border, I was an ovipositing pair of Variegated Meadowhawk.

It has been a very warm and (mostly) dry winter here, but with January 
records dating back to 2003 and 1938, occasional January records are to 
be expected.

Don, these seem to be more than occasional January records, as people are 
seeing them breeding all up and down California and (at least last winter) even 
in Oregon. I think they probably are wintering farther north on average, and 
this may be a species, like many other tropical/southern odonates, that are 
really favored by climate change. 


Major droughts, another feature of climate change, probably dont affect 
migratory species as much, as they are adapted to disperse, while a lot of the 
resident species with strict habitat needs may be at greater risk.

Second, on the Monterey Peninsula Christmas Bird Count on 28 Dec, David
Styer showed me a photo he had taken at Fort Ord SB that date, and it
was a male Variegated Meadowhawk.

Lastly, on 5 Jan 2015, at a small rain puddle in what we call the
"Virgin St. patch" at Laguna Grande park on the Seaside-City of Monterey
border, I was an ovipositing pair of Variegated Meadowhawk.

It has been a very warm and (mostly) dry winter here, but with January
records dating back to 2003 and 1938, occasional January records are to
be expected.

Many interesting things popping up right now! It IS good to find that 
1960s record isn't in error. Your Great Spreadwing date will be recorded 
as new LATE date. I've thought of going to our local spot to check for 
them, but we've had freezes and heavy rain (last month).

Pierre Deviche has seen 4 species this month that have never been seen 
this late before. 3 of them I counted as new LATE dates, as they have 
never been seen in February, but one, the Arroyo Bluet had been, so it 
is now pretty much recorded as flying year round (in AZ). It seems some 
species are capable of being in flight  whenever the conditions are 
right, while others seem to have a 'window' of time where they have to 
fly within these dates, such as the Beaverpond Baskettail.

This might be a good topic for the off season on the CalOdes/SoWest Ode 
&/or Western Odonata sites!! In fact, I think I'll CC the groups into this!!

Cheers and keep reporting!!

There is a Santa Barbara record of three Great Spreadwing from 14th
January, 1960, taken on "a mountain stream." We have wondered about the
veracity of the date of this record. Today (Jan 17th) I visited Upper Oso
Creek in the Santa Ynez River drainage and found one (possibly two) male
Great Spreadwing. Unfortunately it didn't stick around long enough to be
photographed. So, it looks like the date from 1960 is likely accurate. The
temperature at Upper Oso today was 69 degrees.

At Lower Oso there were 5  Variegated Meadowhawks, and another 3 were at
Live Oak.

Time to make vacation plans for some of you, so here's a 'head's up' on 
next year's Ode Blitz: it will be a combined CA/Southwest Blitz
-Thursday 27th to Sunday 30th August in New Mexico. The species there 
are gorgeous, and our field trip coordinators will be the amazing 'Ode
Whisperers' Tony and Shela Godfrey. Tony's the guy who found the first 
USA record for Phyllogomphoides
nayaritensis (West Mexican Leaftail) this year. I think he'll take us to 
that site among others!

Also...here is the text from "Argia" where the Blitz has been announced:

Argia 26(4), 2014
2015 Southwest Dragonfly Blitz
Kathy Biggs 
The 2015 Southwest Dragonfly Blitz will take place on
27–30 July at the City of Rocks State Park in Sierra County,
New Mexico (see ). The event will be hosted and
coordinated by Tony and Shela Godfrey, who can be con
tacted at , and co-coordinated by
Kathy and Dave Biggs, who can be contacted at .
The gorgeous City of Rocks State Park is located about
halfway between Deming and Silver City in southwest New Mexico, within a 
few miles of Dashed Ringtails (Erpetogomphus heterodon), Arizona Snaketails
(Ophiogomphus arizonicus), and other unique southwestern
species. Areas nearby have cienegas and hot springs that
have not even been explored for Odes yet! This is near the
area where the Godfreys found the first USA record for
West Mexican Leaftail (Phyllogomphoides nayaritensis).
Who knows what else we may find?
Besides the reserved group campground, which has hot
showers and a visitors center, many hotels are located in
nearby Silver City and Deming. Let us know if you are
interested.

That's an incredible amount of work.

Thanks for all you have done, and do, someone might write an Ode for

Hi again!!
Only the new records from prior years are listed below. "in person" 
records were reported as they happened.
Kathy

Happy New year everyone.

We had 21 new county records found 'in person' this year, PLUS

*_30New County Records were discovered/reported in 2014 with original data from 
prior years:_* 


Most of these new county records below were found while using information 
collected by Joan Ball ~2014 for her Master’s Thesis. 

These were discovered while comparing her extensive collection of specimen data 
to the data we had already accumulated while I 

was adding information to the 2005 Odonata Central (OC) Dot-map records (those 
records previously lacked locations and dates)

Walter Sanford called Dennis Paulson's attention to this video (see link 
below photo), which is a must-see for odonate enthusiasts.
And, finally, now I know what it is I am seeing in this image I've used 
for years in my presentations - it's removed sperm!!

Our tree is about 90% nature related - about equal parts birds, odes, 
butterflies and mammals....alas, the herps seem to be hibernating.
It might be fun for folks to share their nature related tree ornaments 
while we await the 'real' return of the Odes.

I have to ask, do you folks have Ode Christmas tree decorations too? :-)

It just seems so out of place of a thing to be doing... but then again I
welcomed back my winter syrphid flies with the winter flowers they come

As there are a lot of Common Green Darners along our southern border in the 
winter, I suppose smaller numbers winter farther north and just die off as the 
cold weather comes in. Over the years, as the temps continue to rise, they 
should be found farther and farther north in winter, as the Variegated 
Meadowhawks seem to be now. Or is it just the lack of enough observers in the 
past to understand the ranges and seasonality of all of our species?

Today (12/23/14), I went back to Lower Oso, Santa Ynez River, SBA, to get a
more accurate count of odes. Here's what I found:

California Spreadwing  19
Variegated Meadowhawk  21
Vivid Dancer  1
Common Green Darner  2

I didn't have time to get to Upper Oso.
On the way home I visited a Goleta ranch pond. Here I saw

Comon Green Darner  1 (photo attached)
Blue-eyed Darner     1

Then again this could be an early date. The early date for Sonoma County 
is 2/20/09 though, so there is a 2 mo. break between this sighting and 
early date, and only one between it and late date of 10/10/10. I'm just 
charting it as an isolated occurrence for now...though we sure are 
having the warm weather like we usually do in February!

Hi, all,

I photographed a Common Green Darner (Anax junius) feeding over a salt marsh in 
Bodega Harbor (Sonoma County) yesterday, 22 December 2014. 


I'm curious how often they're seen at this time of year in northern California?

I'm noting the weather we are having this late November and December, to
be more like the late January and February weather patterns, before the
drought weather pattern we entered about 6-7 years ago.

Today, December 22nd, in the mist of another warm spell, I paid a visit to
the Paradise Road area of the Santa Ynez River, Santa Barbara.
Unfortunately, most areas were closed due to recent mudslides. I did,
however, make it to both Upper and Lower Oso. I was quite surprised at how
many odes were flying at the latter spot. Here are cumulative totals:
California Spreadwing (15+), Great Spreadwing (3), Vivid Dancer (1),

I had a couple of darner sp. sightings at Oso Flaco Lake on 12/20 but 
couldn’t tell whether they were “mosaic” darners or a CG Darner.

Just a little more info about next year's Blitz

Our central point will be the City of Rocks State Park which is located 
about halfway between Deming and Silver City in southwest NM. This is 
located within a few miles of Dashed Ringtails and Arizona Snaketails 
and other southwestern endemics. There are other areas nearby such as 
cienegas and hot springs that  have not even been explored yet! So, 
besides adding to our life lists, we'll be surveying the area.

The state park has a couple of group areas that we are reserving for 
camping. There are also other campsites within the park with hookups for 
those in RVs. Hotels are also located in nearby Silver City and Deming, 
which are just a half hours drive away.

I will make inquiries and get back to the group with information on 
which airports are the best to use and as the time approaches, folks may 
want to form mini-caravans and stop at points of interest en route.

Hoping to see many of you there.
Happy Solstice!!

Time to make vacation plans for some of you, so here's a 'head's up' on 
next year's Ode Blitz: it will be a combined CA/Southwest Blitz 
-Thursday 27th to Sunday 30th August in New Mexico. The species there 
are gorgeous, and our field trip coordinators will be the amazing 'Ode 
Whisperers' Tony and Shela Godfrey.
Tony's the guy who found the first USA record for Phyllogomphoides 
nayaritensis (West Mexican Leaftail) this year. I think he'll take us to 
that site among others!
Hope you can join us!!

Hi Kathy,

I've checked a number of locations along Coyote Creek for various odonates, and 
the only locations where I've found Sooty Dancers are in the uppermost reaches 
in Henry Coe State Park. I do have photos, so I'll submit them to Odonata 
Central.

Hi everyone,

The above is the only record for Sooty Dancer in Santa Clara County. If any of 
you have a photo (or specimen), could you please submit it to Odonata Central?

   I used to work on Coyote Creek with our banding operation there. The
creek has changed a lot since 1917, but one may want to look father upstream
perhaps?

Please do go ahead and submit that one BJ....I lost all the data I was 
planning on entering to update the dot map records....NEVER store your 
data on a memory stick without at least backing it up..... but the only 
locations we have in Imperial County are Imperial Dam and Holtville, so 
although not a county record it is a new location. It probably isn't the 
furthest west, but close to it!
Thanks for inquiring!!
Kathy
Ps. Busy restoring the data I lost....I at least have one database with 
most of the records....Thanks to Joanie Ball!!
