Saw thousands of monarchs weary of crossing south over Lake Erie. They rest here on the hundreds of green acres at Glenn Springs Holdings Painesville Site before continuing their journey south.
Our resident site manager saw thousands of monarchs alighted on freshly mowed grass near the lake. There were no blossoms in the immediate area. The butterflies were also occupying the crushed stone aggregate for a time before heading to the southeast. The project office is situated further inland and he infers the group came from the north. This was remarkable and indicates a migration as the winds were from the south yesterday.
