Monarch Fall Roost
Sightings report image

Date: 09/08/2019

Number: 200

There was a break in the rain so we went looking for the monarchs. We found four places with food and cover enough for them and spotted a few flying around each. Three of the places were too far away from the road but the fourth was right over the road. We sat and looked up into the cottonwood and watched a couple of the monarchs until they landed with the others. Even then, with zoom lenses, it was hard to spot the group. They were mostly huddled under the big leaves using them as umbrellas.
Again, a small roost with lots of wild flowers in the pasture to feed on.

We typically find them by finding the trees first that have wild flowers or alfalfa close by. Also, each place has had water close by.
