I took two countings. The one earlier had fewer counts then the sightings increased.
Counted 75 monarchs in 5 minutes flying east to west over the Lake Erie shoreline. A constant flow.
Counted 202 in 5 minutes 10:30am along the shoreline. There are more further out over the lake and closer to the beach...so probably many more than 202!
It’s drizzling (9/13) but again very calm with no wind this morning, so will count them when they’re active again. Didn’t find where they roosted for the night.
