It's a beautiful day for some Monarch tagging!

Monarchs beginning to roost in Cape May
Hi Everyone! Today was a great day for Monarchs here in Cape May and Stone Harbor too! I was lucky enough to reach the roost site early this morning before our butterfly friends warmed up and started to move. The roosts broke up around 8:30 and then the tagging began! I was able to tag 120 Monarchs from 8:45-12:15! I was super excited to break 100 tagged in a day! Thank you to those who visited us at Cape May Point State Park today for  our tagging demonstration! It was great! 
Fingers Crossed for another great day tomorrow! 
See you around the Point,
MMP Intern
