My husband sighted approximately 30 monarchs around 12:30 PM. It was difficult to determine an exact number since they were nectaring in multiple beds on 3.5 acres and flying around. It was bright and sunny at the time with a south wind. The count occurred before my captive release of 3 monarchs.
For some time prior to today, there were fewer than 10 monarchs at any one time.
