Monarch Fall Roost
Sightings report image

Date: 08/28/2017

Number: 2000

My husband and I were amazed to see thousands of monarchs roosting in white pine trees near a cottage we rented for our 30th anniversary. We estimate there were about 2,000 butterflies about 3:00 pm yesterday (August 28). The wind at that time was coming from the south and so the monarchs were shielded in that area. The overnight temperatures had been about 50 degrees F. This morning (August 29) the wind shifted to the north, and they were no longer in the trees at 9:30 am. It was so special to experience. We saw some local people yesterday and they said there is a lot of milkweed growing in this area.
