So last weekend the kids and I went out our local park to tag some monarchs, only to come up empty handed. Being a librarian, my first question was why? Well, according to the volunteers out that day, they had tagged over fifty the last few days. My first thought was that it had rain quit a bit the day before.
Then much to my surprise, as I was sitting and waiting to catch a ride on our local mass transit train one afternoon (instead of in the morning like I usually do) the following week, I counted six monarchs in the course of maybe twenty minutes.
