May 15 - Painted Skimmers!

While we're waiting for Clubtails, take a moment to look at all the Painted Skimmers being reported.

We now have more Painted Skimmers in May that any month-of-May in the past. In May 2018 we recorded 65 Painted Skimmers for Ohio. We are now at 79 for May 2022 - and the month is only half over.

Painted Skimmers like a marshy habitat rather than open water, they're likely to perch for you, and make beautiful photos.

May 2022 is also having good numbers for Common Green Darner - soon to be the top year for May - maybe even tomorrow.

Lots of data coming in, it seems like we just crossed 100 Eastern Forktails, now we're well over 200.
