Roosting in shelter belt. Temp. high 80s, no wind.
[Report moved from Monarch Egg Sighted to Monarch Fall Roost; additional information contributed by observer, added by Journey North, 09/12/21]:
There have been 10 to 12 in the shelter belt, mostly on red cedars, but also a handful spread among mulberry and honey locust, for a week now. Still seeing quite a few mating pairs. I counted them, so it is an accurate count. Yes, sunflowers and goldenrod provide plenty of nectar. They can roost on the south side when there's a north wind (and they always do this) and on the north side (when there's a south wind). THere are also a couple of protected areas inside the shelter belt they utilize.
