I have several pictures. Deficits 100+ monarchs
There were 2 locations (see other report for 800), within 2 miles of each other.
Observed at 6:30pm , 8:30pm & 7am
Total guessing last night at 100 but after seeing them again early this a.m., my estimate is closer to 1000 (counted to 630 and there were so many more)!
Right now the golden rod is blooming in the Flinthills and they were all over those. We also have blackeyed susans, ironweed, sunflowers and a type of aster.
They were roosting in the pine trees, cedar trees, oak and a type of tree with small red seeds(?)
They were shielded from the wind - they were on the North & East sides of the windbreak
