very first monarchs seem to be arriving! Yes, it seems to be that
it is so!
my youngest brother saw a Monarch flying at the yard of our house!
For some seconds she could be seen then she left.
Today, also, I was watching the news at noon time, and they officially
announced that some Sanctuary colonies at the state of México
--Sierra Chincua, most likely--, (bordering with Angangueo) have
been declared as having seen the first manadas of Monarchs
arriving to overwinter with us!
I need to confirm this and I also need to know about the Sanctuary
of El Rosario, too.
a whole week of rain and wind, after weeks scarcely having some
sunshine, it seems that the rain season is almost over. Maybe two
or three weeks more with some distanced rains but not more. In spite
of the weather, temperatures were never under 12-15 Centigrade and
now, cold mornings and evenings will come but with deep blue sky
So it seems that I'll write back to you short after. None of the
people I'm in contact with have come to tell me about any important
sign of Monarchs arriving to our forests yet.
Until later, then.
