Location: Lake Church, Wi., Belgium Wisconsin
Over the years this private residence has been known to be a over night roosting area for Fall migrating Monarchs. However no large layovers have occurred since 2009. One 15 minute observation window of the tree line revealed 65 Monarchs, Later a 45 minute watch 137 monarchs counted up in the sky along the treeline. We recorded a total of 84 Monarchs on the 16 acre property grounds within another half hour! Total sightings including other butterfly species was 324 for a six hour day including nine different species.
It is obvious that Darner Dragonflies & Ruby-throated hummingbirds are also migrating at this time!
