I've rarely seen monarchs here. Maybe 10 a season if I'm lucky. I sat in my backyard for ten minutes and stopped counting at 40. They just kept coming. 10' off the ground, 100' off the ground. Some were flapping to fly, some were riding warm currents. Either way it's amazing to experience.
They were flying pretty much west from my location, (on my compass, between 200-240SW) the wind was going S at about 11MPH
I didn’t see any of them land at all. They were all just following one another.
It was 7:06PM in Youngstown at the time.
