Starting in earnest about 8 o’clock in the morning the butterflies flew in groups of four at most but it was a consistent flow of monarchs at least one every 30 seconds minimum until about three 4 o’clock in the afternoon . We stayed at Scotland yard which is right next to Orchard Beach State Park in Michigan Manistee and that’s the edge of the tall Clifford is the past they were taking really cool to see
Editor's note: contacted observer for more details on this sighting.
Based on observer's comments, estimated ~840 monarchs sighted during that 7 hour period.
i.e., 2 monarchs/min *60 mins/hour * 7 hours observing=840.
