Somehow I managed to locate two odes among the melee (may have been more). One of them turned out to be a Turquoise-tipped Darner. That's the second one I've seen here this year, in spite of them being out-of-range here. (See post of Aug 7)
As far as birds were concerned, there was one too many of those. That one being a sapsucker. It seems to be molting but I think it's a Red-naped Sapsucker.
Another butterfly I saw today was this one that I guess must be a Golden-headed Scallopwing.
The berries on the Chinese Pistachio tree are red now. Hope they attract some interesting birds. I feel overdue for that.
Tomorrow I plan to go to Lajitas.
