Monarchs at Ellwood: First Report!
By Robert Bernstein
This is usually the peak season for the Monarch Butterflies at the Ellwood Main butterfly grove. Here are my photos there this week.
For years there has been concern that butterfly numbers are declining. Back in 1989 counts began and I participated in that first count. We put tiny tags on butterfly wings. UC San Diego was organizing the counts at that time.
I will keep checking back to see how the numbers change during this wintering season!
