Thanks to Doug for setting up this group. I live about 1500 miles from the
southwest but have been birding Arizona, etc. since the late 70's. About
five years ago I really got seriously interested in odes and along the way
ran into Pete Moulton who was another birder/odonater in the Phoenix area.
In my "spare time" I do a lot of web development and Pete had some great
photos of Arizona odes that needed a place for display. Combined with my
frustration of not finding much web info on Arizona dragonflies, I put
together a pretty unsophisticated but functional first crack at a pictorial
checklist for Arizona using Dennis Paulson's range maps. I've not
advertised its presence because frankly, it's not done, but if anyone is
interested it is found at http://www.hologrambirds.com/arizona.
that things are really cooling off here in the north country I can get back
I will be heading to Phoenix to see my son in about two weeks so I hope to
see a few messages on here before I go. Ma has to do something while the
kids are at work!
Looking forward to learning from you all.

Subject: [SoWestOdes] Welcome to SoWestOde
I wanted to wait for a few days, before I sent a message to the
group, so that we would have some people on the list.
Again Welcome and thank you for joining. It would be nice if
everyone would give us a short introduction of yourself, and start
sending messages of your sightings out in the field or any other
discussion that's appropriate for the group.
I live in San Diego, CA., but I have a great interest in the
Southwestern section of the Country. I'm into birds, butterflies,
and dragonflies. I own other list including CalBirds, SDBirds,
SoWestLep, and CalOdes. I'm into Butterfly and Dragonfly photography
and my web site is http://sdbirds.basiclink.com
CalOdes has really taken off, and it has been amazing with the
amount of information going back and forth, and sightings reports
have increased significantly. I hope the same happens here.
Again, thank you for joining and start posting away. Attachments are
not permitted on the list, but you can post any photos in the photo
section, and files in the file section. You must have a Yahoo ID to
access the website fully.
