Migration Beginning?


Migration Beginning?

We saw 5 potential migrating monarch butterflies roosting on the east-most tree in the middle of the circle. Here is a picture of one possible migrant. That makes the migration happening a day earlier than last year! There are a few local butterflies around and they seem to be landing in the previous clustering spots. Check out the spots and see if you can catch a glimpse of them.
