    It is possible that more monarchs overwintered at Chincua because of habitat
    destruction at other sites, which could harm the monarch's less disturbed
    locations. The increased numbers could also be due to a strong 1996 summer
    reproduction period and fall migration, and a relatively easy winter. Her
    impression was that the monarch numbers were high compared to other years.
