Thanks to attending a conference with very limited internet connection this weekend, this is a day late. However, we’re transitioning into fall, so the swarm activity is way down this week – not a lot to report anyway! Swarms were reported from the following locations in the last week:
Panama City Beach, FL
Port St. Joe, FL
St. Petersburg, FL
Council Grove, KS
Kansas City, KS
Kansas City, MO
Fort Worth, TX
Here is the US map for last week:

A bit of an odd arrangement of reports this week! A few in the south, where I’d expect them to be, but there is still a small amount of activity in the upper and central Midwest. Odd! Still no migration in the western US this year, which seems to fit well with the limited migratory reports in the east overall. With some definite exceptions, cities that had huge migratory events, there hasn’t been a whole lot of movement reported this year. Very interesting.
I suspect the season is almost over and that I’ll only get a few reports this week. Hope you’ll take a moment to submit a report if you see a swarm! Anything this late in the year is exciting.
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!
