I love nature and have since I was young. I'm very eclectic in my interests but birds, butterflies and dragonflies are my main focus.

Thanks again. The color difference may be because of lighting although it was more brown than the other lizards we saw.

It looks a lot like the Owlflies we have in the US. Probably something closely related.

Thanks, our first real sighting was #80 flying directly toward and over us about 30' above our heads. Awesome birds.

I have added it to the mission. I didn't add it initially because I wasn't sure you included the vultures in it.

LoisStacey Snowy Owl
Snowy Owl commented on by LoisStacey Tybee Island, Georgia, USA10 years ago

Thanks. He stayed along the coast from at least early December until about a week after this photo was taken. He disappeared for a few weeks but the same species was seen in Florida so I think it was the same bird. He came right back to Georgia to stay for another month or more though.

Possibly a Pine Snake, Pituophis melanoleucus

LoisStacey Question Mark
Question Mark commented on by LoisStacey Virginia, USA10 years ago

This is a Question Mark. You can actually tell more easily from the upper markings than the 'Comma/QM' below because those marks are often obscured or worn.

To identify, Comma has three dots on the upper surface of the forewing while QM has 3 dots and a dash. Scroll down to the third picture in the link below and hover your cursor over the picture to see this feature.

I see you are using bugguide which is great! Another good resource for moth identification is:

White-crowned might be a possibility but it would have a yellow bill, not pink.

Field is a definite possibility.
