Saw roosts of 31,35,42 and 55 Monarchs at 7:00 PM. There was also an estimated 120 more on various small bushes and dead branches. Wind is light north and 72F. Saw many of these Monarchs milling about the same area about 4:00 PM today. This is a Cottonwood grove in the middle of a 15 acre prairie remnant. A good number of Meadow blazing star blooming here, did a burn this spring. Very early for roosts but this has been a different year, most plants advanced growing wise.
