Monarch Fall Roost
Sightings report image

Date: 09/25/2021

Number: 200


[Additional information contributed by observer, added by Journey North, 09/27/21]:

I noticed a few on 9/23, 9/24 there were a few more. By 9/25 there were bunches in the trees and flying around. By noon on 9/26, they were gone. They seemed to like the pecan trees this year. They were also in the fruitless mulberry.

No nearby nectar sources that I know of, but we are on north side of Lubbock with lots of fields around.

Overnight lows of 63 degrees F

We are in a bit of a canyon, so they seem to like to stop off here. This is our 3rd roost in 10 years. The first one was majestic.

On one branch, I counted 40. Just estimated from that one branch and all of them flying around.
