People are counting monarchs that are roosting by the hundreds, feeding by the dozens, and flying overhead at rates up to 1,500 per hour. When you watch migrating monarchs, please quantify (count or measure) what you’re seeing. To give perspective, compare your observation to what you saw yesterday, last week, or last year.
- Sky Count: How many monarchs did you count - and for how many minutes were you watching?
- Roost Count: How many monarchs were roosting for the night?
- Garden Count: How many did you count in your garden at one time?
