Spot-winged Glider

I was surprised at the number of Spot-winged Gliders we saw during our August Texas trip. This photo was taken on 12 August 2018 at the Knob Hill Bike Trail in Denton County. Spot-wingd Gliders are found across much of the United States—except for the Northern Plains and Rockies. They are also observed south to Argentina and have scattered records north to Alaska. I have a previous record from Minnesota. Spectacular migratory flights are often reported (Paulson 2011).
