      As winds calmed a bit I had a chance to visit the
      Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday to
      look for Spring Odes. High winds and dust storms over
      the past three weeks and very dry conditions (0.15 mm
      of rain since last October) have made it difficult to
      make observations anywhere locally.

      I visited the west slough on Unit 5 and Unit 6 and the
      south side of the impoundment on Unit 5, on BLNWR,
      Chaves County, New Mexico. The Blue-eyed Darners,
      Common Green Darners, and numerous Variegated
      Meadowhawks were common along the west slough.
      Familiar Bluets were common in the Salt Grass along
      the south side of the Unit 5 impoundment.


      Damselflies examined:

      American Rubyspot (Hetaerina americana) male
      west slough of Unit 5

      American Rubyspot (hetaerina americana) female
      west slough of Unit 5

      Violet Dancer (Argia fumipennis violacea) female

      Homeochromatic female form with complete blue
      antihumeral stripes on thorax. fresh water west slough
      of Unit 6

      Black-fronted Forktail (Ischnura denticollis) female
      Heterochromatic female form with the reddish orange
      antihumeral stripes on the thorax. fresh water west
      slough of Unit 6
