Five pictures are of same
July 18 2003 Imperial County CA
four pics of a female were taken near the same location as the first
five but a few days later.
Can not rule out that it was the same female although the second one
appears to be whiter along the middle of the abdomen.
markings on the abdomen with those of the the Russet-tipped Clubtail
and White-belted Ringtail pics!
place I have seen Brimstone Clubtail was near the East highline
Canal and K Lateral.
Sinclair Road is north of the city of Calipatria. Go east on
Sinclair till the road ends and then
continue east on the canal (K Lateral) till everything ends! East
Highline Canal is the eastern boundary
of all agriculture in Imperial Valley and runs all the way from
the Mexican border to Niland CA. Because
it has desert on one side and agriculture on the other means that
it can be great oding and birding!
Numerous White-belted Ringtail and a few Russet-tipped Clubtail, which
are very similar, were flying at the same time.
