I have been in Cedar Key from November 20th to November 26th. Everywhere you look, all over the island, monarchs are everywhere. I have also seen just as many, gulf fritillaries, cloudless sulphurs and zebra longwings. They are not in clusters, but singles, flying solo, everywhere. The Monarchs must number in the 1000s. There is not a place on the island that I am not seeing them. There are none that are dead or on the ground. They seem to be quite full of energy and seeking flowers to drink nectar from.
