Conservative count on Tuesday evening before sunset. Temp was still in 90's. Only three easily seen in the black willow tree, but the canopied shadier part of the woods was a different story. This count was in nearly the full length of the N-S part of the woods behind our house and neighbor's to the west. I went to the Water Utilities Trust meeting today. They didn't know about the roosts in their property. One thing they are willing to do to accommodate the monarchs is demolish the trees for the sewer replacement project in late fall & over the winter when the monarchs aren't there. The really good news is that the roosting area connected to the woods extends further north and east on the edge of the pond than I thought and will be out of the way of the sewer project. The north end has many monarchs that I couldn't access to count.
