With the breeding season winding down but migration not going in earnest yet I've been carrying a net when I've been inland. Tim and I waded out into Brown recently. It was rank sulfuracous muck that I sat down in once. I think this Marsh Wren was rooting for the tar pit.
We caught a few odes, Common Green Darner, Slender Spreadwing, and White-faced Meadowhawk. The Meadowhawk was a lifer for me, though it's the best represented meadowhawk in the specimen record for Berrien Co. He got released.
Also released was this Wandering Glider I snagged at Sarett Prairie. Last year I made about 4 trips and spent a decent amount of time at the Harbor Shores puddle where there were a lot of gliders before I finally snagged one. This is the first one I've seen this year and was caught on the first swing.
Finally a mockingbird that popped up by the airport that Tim had mentioned has been around. I didn't notice until I edited the images into a montage this evening that it was carrying food. Perhaps breeding season isn't quite done after all.
