It’s that time of year again…possible my favorite time of the year when the monarch butterflies are making their annual migration.
Northeast Oklahoma is just a layover as they continue their southerly journey to Mexico where they will overwinter in the country’s central highlands. I’ve been catching glimpses of them here and there – a few in my backyard and in the neighborhood – but I think we’re still a little bit early for the main event.
In recent years, the monarch population has been declining. Plus, there was a terrible storm this past March in Mexico which reported to have killed nearly 7% of the monarch population. So whenever I do catch a glimpse of these magical creatures, it makes me really, really happy.
I hope they make you happy too!
