The Elusive Monarch
Monarchs are so scarce this year that some observers in Connecticut, Maine, New York, and New Hampshire saw their first this week. We made a new map for people to report "few or no monarchs." Notice how elusive monarchs have been in the northeastern part of their range.

"This is the only monarch I have seen this year. This was the only photo I could get by the time I got my camera.... it was ready to leave!"
