Things are slowly picking up here, tagged 89 on Sept 11 in four and a half hours. The Monarchs are flying closer to the ground, nectaring longer and moving in a more general southwest direction. I tag at Hawk's Cliff near Port Stanley, Ontario. Lat 42.667 Long -81.217. We have had a cooler summer, with more days of overcast resulting in an extended period of growth for milkweed. Normally, it is finished by the end of July. I am still picking cats as of September 15. We seem to have a delayed, local migrating population which may extend the timeline of the overall migration.
