Monarch PEAK Migration

Date: 09/23/2020

Number: 30

On lunch break at 1:05pm. Immediately saw Monarchs in flight and 4 others nectaring on a Butterfly Bush at 10th & Washburn (parking lot island). Parked (facing west) in a large open parking lot at 10th & College at 1:10pm and watched Monarchs flying solo, sometimes two fairly close in flight and once three together. Most flying southward generally from the north, but I noticed a few move toward the WSW over the parking lot. One flew into a tree SW of the parking lot. Some circled over the parking lot gaining elevation before moving southward. Didn't have to wait much more than a minute to see another one--really a steady movement. Left there and saw 3 more in flight (southward) at 10th & Washburn at 1:50pm when my observations ended. Calm, cloudy, 79 degrees.
