Monarch Fall Roost

Date: 10/29/2012

Number: 87

Monday, Oct 29: Monarchs continued on the Coastal Flyway, crossing Lavaca Bay at the causeway Monday (midcoast of Texas). Altus and I were over on the peninsula to the Lavaca Bay Causeway in the afternoon twice and she netted 20 that were nectaring on camphor daisies. We watched as clusters were forming late in the afternoon. We went back after 7:30, and found two clusters that Altus could walk thru the weeds to. She used her LED head light and finger picked 87 monarchs from the two clusters in thorn brush/trees just before the edge of water for a total of 107 monarchs captured for the day.
