  4. ideas please. Sept.15 Windsor,Ontario

    I'm not comfortable doing an ID based on the pics, but I suspect Western Tanager is unlikely. Only 1 or 2 a year are seen in the province.
  5. HUGE Caterpiller!

    Polyphemus moth - I think.
  6. Where have the Canada Geese gone?

    There is a chance they are off in farm fields feeding, at this time of year, especially if they've been harvested, you can find many geese so occupied.
  7. Ontario flycatcher

    Anyone want to take a stab at this one ? Taken 2017-09-09 at Long Point, Ontario (Lake Erie shore). So far I have been given 3 different opinions, with 3 different species suggested - Least (which simply based on size I dont think it was, it was notably larger), Acadian and Trail's. All same individual. Thanks. DSCN8416on Flickr DSCN8413 on Flickr DSCN8412 on Flickr
  8. Recent bug sightings

    Lifer Ghost Tiger Beetle. Listed as Imperiled in Ontario, only known from a couple of widely dispersed locations in the province. Requires undisturbed sand dune habitat. Not easy to spot a white beetle less than 1 cm long on white sands. Took 4 visits to locate, thankfully this time I spotted 6, maybe due to the fact this was the first visit with no groups of ATV riders ripping up the dunes habitat illegally.

  10. A few from south Louisiana

    What is off on 2 is the terminal appendages should be white. Maybe it is variation or they are there just obscured by the wall , but I still sense it is a pondhawk
  11. A few from south Louisiana

    #1 - think so, with caveat they dont get into Canada, so I've never seen one #2 - Need to consider, something seems off but I cant place it #3 - Blue Dasher #4 - Eastern Pondhawk male
  12. Any Lifers?

    Yellow-crowned Night-heron (juvenile), not very common in Ontario : Nyctanassa violacea_2017-09-02_00089_small on Flickr

    Where in California was it taken. It looks like an Autumn Meadowhawk, which as far as I know is the only meadowhawk with yellow legs (but I know eastern species better). They do have a specific range it the state though, even if they are super common in the east. There is a dragonfly section here too, just scroll down the page. Not super active but those of us there do our best to help. UPDATE - I misread the history of the post, and now see the photo was taken much further east, and as such for sure this is an Autumn Meadowhawk.

    While common in winter, actually quite rare breeders in Southern Ontario. Redhead brood : Aythya americana_2017-08-23_00034_small on Flickr

    Common Whitetail - female.
