"Interesting blog posting, I'll have to go read that in more detail in the next few days. Odd that it mentions "S1" in the blog post as the spot in question is clearly on S2 (segment 2). Also, just to clarify, it isn't the hairs…"

"From appearance (thick flag, frosty look), I think this is a Green-striped all the way. Another feature is the fine bumps near the tip of the cerci of the male which one can "feel", but are also visible under magnification. Did you hang on…"

possible Green-striped Darner (Aeshna verticalis) - Sep 10, 2016

While out driving on the Seven Mile Lake Road in Charlotte County trying to find Mottled Darners, I stopped at a small wet ditch where I spotted a Darner patrolling the ditch.I managed to catch it pretty quickly and was really hoping it would be another Mottled Darner so that I could get some in hand photos but when I pulled it out of the net, I saw what looked initially like a Canada Darner; however, it was greener than I typically see in male Canada Darners and the flag on the front thoracic…See More

"Actually, that drive out there may have paid off more than I thought since I might have also photographed a Green-striped Darner (Aeshna verticalis). This is a species I've struggled with for years because I've just never caught anything…"

Hello Gilles

I am contacting you in regards to the Golden Eagle sightings in November at the Tantramar Marsh.  As part of the Eastern Golden Eagle Working Group and a fieldwork subcontractor for MDIFW, I would be interested to learn more about the GOEA sightings both recent and historic in N.B. I have recently joined Birding New Brunswick to follow sightings over the border.  I notice that you post the New Brunswick Winter Bird List, it seemed likely that you might be familiar with the GOEA trends in N.B. I am also contacting Jim Wilson,  whose name was passed along to me by Todd Watts, I spent a day at Greenlaw Mt with him last fall.  I plan to take a drive up to Tantramar Marsh this winter to view the area, with or without a Golden Eagle! It sounds as though there are consistent records of sightings in the area over the years. If you have a chance, I would be interested in any information that you could convey.  Best, Jill Glover Great Pond, Maine

Bonjour Gilles! Thanks for joining both the butterfly and dragonfly groups. This winter will involve a lot of organizing and so on, but I expect some people will share images form this summer, some of which will be useful to the CDC as data, some of which will need some ID. If you have any links, images, questions or otherwise to share, I will be happy to post them on the main page for this group along with everyone else's. Cheers!
