Fantastic day! I spent some time on the hawk tower and then walked the east and west prairie trails. Maybe 40 Monarchs flew past the tower; the rest were feeding in asters and goldenrods. In the past few weeks, the Monarchs have been worn-out, "Gen 4" Monarchs; today's were crisp, new "Gen 5" Monarchs. One odd-colored Monarch.
