Monday Update

The winds are subsiding and monarchs are on the wing again in Cape May Point. Not huge numbers today, but encouraging to see monarchs engaged in normal feeding behavior again after 4 consecutive days with 25 to 40 mph winds. The weather forecast for Tuesday calls for NNW winds at 8 mph, ideal conditions for monarch migration. We're hoping enough monarchs weathered the recent storms to bring a big migration into Cape May over the next few days. We'll let you know if that happens.
