Plain brown dragonfly - Archilestes californica

Plain brown dragonfly - Archilestes californica
Salem, Oregon, USA
September 21, 2017
Size: about 2 inches
This dragonfly was in my garden. I found the eyes to be unusual being very spherical and separated. I want to know if it is a species that migrates and should be reported

Moved from ID Request.

Actually a damselfly
but if it was so large you thought it was a dragonfly then it must be Archilestes
