October 7 (Milanville)

A big day. "A dozen monarchs appeared in the garden after lunch. During one 15-minute interval in early afternoon, 8 monarchs flew south across the hay meadow, near the Delaware River. One of them caught an updraft and soared above the tallest trees."

"At a highway rest stop on I-80, a few miles west of I-81, a single monarch flew above the parking lot and landed on a thistle flower near my car (about 11:55 a.m.). Later, on a back road near New Columbus, PA, I disturbed a monarch that was resting at the edge of a plowed field."
