I took my 2 mile walk today and saw one monarch nectaring on knapweed on the ground at the end of 3rd Street at noon. At 1:30 PM, I saw a monarch nectaring on a butterfly bush of purple spike flowers on the 3rd Street walkway in town. Finally, I netted and tagged (ABSW-253) a male monarch at Harrisville Harbor at 1:50 PM. Weather was sunny with some white clouds about. The Wind was NNE-5-15 mph with the Temperature topping out at 62F. No other monarchs were seen to 7 PM.
