Nothing new to report, I’m afraid: at the end of September the map looked exactly as it did at the end of August. Sightings that would have been notable in the spring are ho-hum now because I’ve spotted them already: Tennessee, Arizona, New Mexico, and Alabama. I’d trade two Alabamas for a Mississippi any day.
In addition to Mississippi, I’m missing Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska, Alaska, Nevada, and you-know-who. Not a bad showing for the year so far, but I’m not giving up yet.
