They're Here!

Just a brief post to say the Monarchs were streaming into Cape May Point today! A bunch of friends helped out with the tagging and it was all we could do to keep up with the influx of Monarchs into the yard. Tomorrow I'll report if the numbers are staying up and if the Monarchs are hanging around or continuing their journay across the bay. A Question Mark and a Gray Hairstreak were also seen today, as well as the visitors from the south, the Long-tailed Skipper and the Ocola Skipper. Stay tuned!
