About 2pm, strong winds from the south. Approximately 200 monarchs in a tree line near the Holyfield Winery.
These monarchs were discovered by a mowing crew who notified my sister who notified me and we went out there right away.
We walked approximately 300 feet of tree line with monarchs spotted in groups every few feet. Upon our return down the treeline, we decided to estimate the numbers in order to report to Journey North.
Each tree had between 15-20 monarchs so our estimate could be low!
There were brisk Southerly winds between 15-25mph and all of the monarchs were on the North side of the trees.
It was magical and beautiful!
