While driving north towards St. Louis from Houston I encountered hundreds/thousands of monarch headed south. This was around 10:30am. They were flying low past my vehicle. Not like when I saw a monarch migration in south Tx several years ago where I had to use my binoculars because they were so high up.
I am 100% certain they were monarchs. I have raised monarchs for 3 years in my back yard and in 2018 I went to the annual Butterfly Festival in Mission, TX during the migration and saw monarchs crossing the Rio Grande River. I also saw gobs of snouts in that area and during guided tours at the National Butterfly Center.
The road they were coming down was US67 and very close to the SR90 intersection just south of Pocahontas, AR strait at the windshield. No photos because of driving.
