A nice bunch of monarchs.
They were feeding in the afternoon on alfalfa blooms, maybe a ten acre field.
They roosted to the west, mostly shaded by the woods and hills in that direction.
temps were still in the 70s so many roosts for singles and clusters were mostly small.....did spot 13 in one, but a lot of moving from spot to spot in the last hour of sunlight time.
wind was about 5mph from the north most of the day.
i'll probably check later today to see if they stay......winds predicted to be easterly and mild, temps again in the 70s and sunny.
