I was with my neighbor and saw a couple of Monarchs flying over her house. We looked up to observe groups of Monarchs flying from just below the clouds down to about 50-100 feet above the ground. This was at 11:05 a.m. Came home and continued to observe Monarchs at about 20 per minute, sometimes more, sometimes less. For a brief period (about 10 minutes) saw at least 50 a minute. I observed for a period of 90 minutes and a conservative estimate would be 2000 Monarchs flew over. Overcast with very little breeze. Saw Monarchs flying in circles trying to catch a lift.
