Swarm Sunday – 6/19/2011 – 6/25/2011

The swarming picked up a bit this week, but it’s still a slow start to the season.  No migratory swarms were reported, but there were six static swarms.  Most of them were in the south:

  • Pittsburgh, PA
  • Mineola, TX
  • Tyler, TX
  • rural TX near Yantis
  • Russellville, AR
  • Ponchatoula, LA
Exciting!  I also learned this week that a dragonfly researcher in New England is going to start a project similar to mine soon looking specifically at migration of dragonflies.  He will be looking for input from the public too.  I’ll keep you posted when I hear more!

Keep the reports coming everyone!


Have you seen a dragonfly swarm?

I am tracking swarms so I can learn more about this interesting behavior.  If you see one, I’d love to hear from you!  Please visit my Report a Dragonfly Swarm page to fill out the official report form.  It only takes a few minutes!
