The first official record of Blue-faced Meadowhawk dragonfly (Sympetrum ambiguum) at Jackson Miles Abbott Wetland Refuge was observed at Mulligan Pond on 15 September 2016. 10 days later, another Blue-faced Meadowhawk was spotted near the same location.

25 SEP 2016 | JMAWR | Blue-faced Meadowhawk (female heteromorph)

This individual is a female heteromorph, as indicated by her tan coloration and terminal appendages.

As it turns out, the female spotted on the 15th and this one spotted on the 25th were the only Blue-faced Meadowhawks seen during many photowalks around Mulligan Pond during Fall 2016.
