Just another Striped Meadowhawk? (Emma Jones Nature Preserve, Hillsboro, OR, 10/20/10)

Not! This is an Autumn Meadowhawk, a first for the preserve, at least since I started recording. Note that this bug only has three wings.


Some pictures from various locations, OR (mid October 2010)

This Townsend’s Warbler was at UJ Hamby Park in Hillsboro on 10/19/2010.

Just a few yards further, I was able to snap a shot of this Striped Meadowhawk.

An adult with a young Greater White-fronted Goose were floating down the Ecola River in downtown Cannon Beach on October 17.

This gull was in the roost at the beach on the north side of the Ecola River in Cannon Beach the same day. Can you id it?

This Chestnut-backed Chickadee came really close near the top of Hood River Mountain on October 16.

Another Striped Meadowhawk (with no apparent stripes) was at Emma Jones Nature Preserve on October 18.  Thanks to Jim Johnson for confirming the id on both bugs shown here.
