WIR 7/12-7/18

Wednesday 7/12: Looped Lincoln without anything overly interesting.

Thursday 7/13: Drove up to NH for the DSA meeting via Amherst.

Friday 7/14: Went with Josh and Ken to Moose Bog. Weather wasn’t good for odes but outside of Spruce Grouse (which was the only one I really wanted), we got the complete boreal list: Gray Jay, Boreal Chickadee, Black-backed Woodpecker, Olive-sided Flycatcher, Palm Warbler, Lincoln’s Sparrow, Moose. Rained too hard to do anything after but we did have a Snowshoe Hare while poking around for future locations.

Saturday 7/15: Went to some random pond in NH. Weather was fair and odes weren’t overly cooperative. Best was an Eastern Red Damsel totally out of habitat. Some decent butterflies and a family of Ruffed Grouse. We continued to the Nash River where we had Superb Jewelwings and not much else (but another family of grouse along the road).

Sunday 7/16: Went to Trudeau Rd which had crossbills and a few emeralds. On to Profile Lake where we had distant Lake Emerald (plus a nymph) but no captures. Then a long ride home.

Monday 7/17: Quick loop of the duck ponds was quiet.

Tuesday 7/18: College Pond had the usual.
