Some good rare insects have been showing up lately, so it may be a good fall to keep an 'eye' open for them. The Striped Saddlebags yesterday at Point Pelee was a nice surprise for me. I tried to find them back in late September 2010 when they showed up, but I had no luck.
Last week, a Citrine Forktail was seen by Bob Yukich along west beach trail. That is another I would like to see!
The most common mosaic darner yesterday seemed to be Mottled.
Great Egrets are showing up here, there and everywhere. I need to find a Snowy.....!
Today, one was at Stewart Wetland. All three of the 'usual' heron types were present. Just yellowlegs for shorebirds today.
On Saturday, I came across a large crayfish at Blenheim Lagoons on the roadway.
A Marsh Wren came in close at Erieau on Saturday while I was along the marsh trail.
