Clearly this is the peak of the migration along the north shore of Lake Ontario west of the Municipality of Port Hope. In this cover field, just north of the shore of Lake Ontario, I captured 282 monarchs on Saturday to tag and another 240 monarchs on Sunday, September 12th. In town, monarchs were soaring high and flying west over the town, dropping down to nectar on the buddleia in the garden. Obvious migratory flight. Hundreds and hundreds of monarchs were stopping to feed in this huge clover field.
