Its has been 206 days since. . . .
. . . . I have seen a Monarch Butterfly. While walking around Red House Lake here in Allegany State Park this evening, I observed my very first Monarch for 2007! It is so hard to believe that it was over 6 months ago when these wonderful butterflies were migrating south to winter in California and Mexico. Their offspring continue their cycle and now moving back north again! I would assume the one I saw was a female and probably laying numerous eggs while moving north. Shouldn’t be too long before they become very common and they begin their movements south again.
When you find your first monarch butterfly, make sure you report it on Journey North’s website at: http://www.learner.org/jnorth/monarch/
