Big numbers of monarchs moving west through Newcastle, Ontario today along the waterfront. Warm (~25C) and windy conditions good for migration. I estimate that I saw around 100 in the course of a 1h period. Adults also seen nectaring. Most were clearly migrating west. That said, I also witnessed 2 paired monarchs breeding, which suggests that there may still be a mixture of migrating and non-migratory individuals in the area.
