Counted about 41 this morning. Give or take a few.
They were mostly flying from bush to bush and feeding [along fairground fence line, about a block long]. Some butterflies looked more recently emerged and younger. Their colors were more vibrant.
I do feel they were migrating because I was at another location and saw 2 Monarchs flying up high by the trees.
Then at another location I saw a single Monarch flying.
