White netting darners at South Prairie, a Red-shouldered Hawk started calling. He called for quite a while. This is a highly unlikely location for a Red-shouldered Hawk, so much so that I personally would doubt sightings from a spot like this. South Prairie is a combination of bog/lake, but also - by now - dry prairie. It is however 20mi north of the Columbia River in sea of woods.

A male Red Crossbill was baffled when he landed a mere 8ft away and noticed that I was also present.

Subarctic Darner and Brush-tipped Emerald were nice! So were many Sweetflag Forktails, a species considered mega rare in the area until folks started looking a little harder. I may also have netted a Black-tipped Darner.

The bog also had lots of Great Sundew.
