Monarch PEAK Migration
Sightings report image

Date: 09/13/2020

Number: 80

From 9:10-10:30am, so averaged one per minute! Incredible!

They were flying south. The wind was light, not sure what direction. They were flying above the tree tops. We were on our third story deck and hadn’t yet seen them that high. We just moved in a month ago. We realized they were likely on their way to Mexico! The vast majority of them were by themselves though they seemed to come in waves with some slow times when none came. Occasionally there were a couple together.
