January 6 Update - 2021 Flight Range Expansion

One of the things we keep track of is the range of days that a species is seen in Ohio. We call this the flight range, this helps know when we should expect to start (or stop) looking for a species. By keeping track, when can also have some insight to on-going changes,

For 2021, we established 20 new early or late flight dates to existing species.
