Many flying from the east over lake michigan to the kohler andrae south beach
It was from 3:00PM until 5:00PM that we watched them. Some were resting and feeding on nectar plants on the dunes behind the beach in the Kohler-Andrae State Park.
I believe the wind was from the East. They would come in from the lake (east) along the beach and fly over our heads, sometimes as many as 10-15 at a time and as few as 3 with breaks in between. The numbers seemed to peak around 4:00- 4:30 PM and by 5:00 very few were coming in.
I don’t have a photo, I took some video but its hard to see them.
They were beautiful!
