|Monarchs come in many sizes. This male was smaller than average. |

With the on and off drizzle today, our monarch census numbers were low. Monarchs were still seen on the point, but rather than flying, they were busy nectaring and fueling up for the next leg of their journey. It is hard to predict what tomorrow will bring. Current weather forecasts call for morning showers into the afternoon. Different weather sources are predicting different wind directions. If there isn't too much rain, perhaps we will get some new monarchs to Cape May.
The team still had plenty of monarchs to tag for the demo. The demo season is wrapping up, but if you haven't caught one yet, you still have two more chances. We have a demo both Saturday and Sunday at 2pm at Cape May Point State Park.
