Not surprisingly, given how early in the year it still is, there weren’t very many swarms reported last week:
Daytona Beach, FL
And here is the US map:
Red pins are static swarms, yellow pins are migratory. Click the map to enlarge.
I am not used to getting US reports this early in the year, so it’s exciting to see something different! I hope I will keep getting reports of dragonflies over the next few months, though this little flurry of activity may stop before the main season resumes in June as usual. Regardless, this is a great way to start the season and I can’t wait to see what else happens this year!
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! Thanks!
