I spent the day out on the Bitter Lake National Wildlife Refuge tagging along with Jeff Lubchansky while he was photographing dragonflies. The highlight of the day was finding several Black Setwings (Dythemis nigrescens) on the big Saline Oxbow. Only a few Black Setwings have been found in New Mexico (Chaves and Eddy Counties). Below is the list of the Odes we found on the refuge today.

Yesterday we has observed the Filigree Skimmer, Roseate Skimmer, and Desert Firetail along the Spring River in downtown Roswell.
