Just a Few Hours Late Monarch Triumphantly Arrive


Dear friends,

After cloudy and rainy weeks, the sky turned deep blue, bringing us intense sunshine and cool nights. The moisture that our forests stored during our short and insufficient rainy season will soon evaporate but hopefully not too soon.

With only hours of delay, our Monarchs heroically arrive this November 4-5 to their final destination in the coniferous forests of the “Sierra Chincua” and “El Rosario” in central Mexico!

We are very excited to see the first 2 or 3 fly by. It is a late arrival with low numbers of monarchs arriving. In weeks ahead, we expect to see hundreds of thousands of monarchs arrive!
