Monarch PEAK Migration

Date: 09/20/2020

Number: 100

Many adults on the wing, all flying south. Migration peaks here around 9/20

I was driving around town on Sunday, so 100 is my best guess. Most were flying 30-40 feet off the ground. Light wind was from the south, it was sunny, mid 70s. Since I was driving I didn't get any pictures.

My son and I, when he was younger, tagged for 4 years, and learned that the best time to tag was around 9/20, with light south winds. Monarchs used to cluster in a park near my son's elementary school, I think to rest for a bit.
