Monarch PEAK Migration

Date: 09/14/2020

Number: 80

All along the dunes of Watch Hill, Fire Island.

That was a very conservative estimate - I think it was more

It was between 12:30-2:30pm and they were travelling along the dunes/coast. Just flittering by. I kept saying theres one theres two or three. Seemed to be a steady stream. Sometimes they would land in the sand maybe taking up some salt?

They were heading west. Looked like they were migrating and that evening I saw a small roost in a pine tree. Pics came out horrible of the roost to far and blurry.

Seems like migration..all along the coast and that evening saw some congregating in the pines.

Next day I didn’t see any.
