Sighting for September 30, 2021

my yard NABA #1151 & Monarch Waystation #8318
Cape May County, NJ

Just a 2 short visits to the yard as most of the my day was at CM Point. 25 Monarchs tagged in the yard but over all I would estimate that there were at least 75 that moved through the yard while I was there between 11AM & 2PM. Monarchs were tagged and left with other Monarchs replacing them. A Brazilian Skipper eclosed today making 2 BS in the yard with the other also being very fresh and sunning on a canna leaf. Both Fiery Skippers and Ocola Skippers continue to be in the double digits. Don't know if there are any roosts this evening because I went back to the Point.
