Description

A solo visit because I had not been out in a week. I waited until the afternoon because the tide was high on the coast, causing shorebirds and larids to fly into the park to roost on the beach and the booms. The weather at the start was overcast, 57 degrees ("feels like" 54) and windy (from the north at 10 MPH). The only other people in the park were two "surfers" who were using the mechanized scaffolding to encircle the southeastern part of the lake dozens of times. These "surfers" probably explained the absence of the Greater Scaup from the same area. I walked to the southwestern side of the lake to along the entire northern sidewalk. I left at 1634 and walked into the former Old Belcher Mines Park. I returned to the park at 1703; these sightings are listed separately.

I looked up this moth in Leckie and Beadle (2018) after iNat's machine learning identified it. I think the identity is correct! It'll be a lifer if a moth-er RGs it.

With Don Fraser, Clint Gibson, Tom Palmer and 13 others; my first nocturnal moth survey, organized by Virginia "Ginny" Hamilton of The Nature Conservancy. There were two moth arrays about 400 feet apart. This was the second array, set up in an open flatwoods site adjacent to a marsh. It was awesome! The number of "bugs" was overwhelming at times; by necessity, I have ignored lots of tiny to small, generic-shaped beetles and other small insects, most of which probably could not be identified by my photographs. By my count -- and I spent some time sorting through the 182 photographs of 129 records and combining images of the same (presumed) individuals -- I am submitting the following taxa from this spot (tentatively): 12 ants, 1 ant lion, 1 bee, 17 beetles, 7 "bugs," 1 cockroach, 1 dragonfly, 1 damselfly, 3 flies, 2 lacewings, 8 leafhoppers, 1 mantis, 70 (!) moths, 1 scorpion (on a fallen pine log 100 feet from the array; Clint found it with a UV light), 4 shield bugs, and 3 giant water bugs.

All of these photographs were taken with my Panasonic Lumix FZ80 (with a broken exposure setting knob) and the built-in flash. The flash worked magically for nearly every photograph.

Note: Except for a few cases, I cannot identify ANY of these species with certainty. I am relying ENTIRELY on iNat's artificial intelligence/machine learning. (Two guys from the Lakeland area, who set up this array, we very knowledgeable about moths and other insects. I could not assign many of their identifications to specific insects, and then to remember them 24 hours later as I was going through my photographs. But in many cases, iNat came up with names that I remember hearing while at the array). So, no guessing, please!

Don and I left the preserve at 2258 and headed home. I arrived at 0135 Saturday morning.

Description

For a few years in the mid- to late 1990s, a number of Texas Hill Country ranchers got into "Emu farming". It was a short-lived fad, but in the interim, a number of Emu's escaped from captivity and wandered around to new locations. This particular Emu spent a few days on the Refuge's Eckhardt Tract near the Shin Oak Observation Deck. It's eventual fate is unknown but there were a few instances in the region where road-killed Emu's were encountered.
