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

Monarch tagging in my yard by CM Monarch Project volunteers the past 2 weeks. RH tagged 25 today when he ran out of tags before running out of Monarch’s. This afternoon I counted 20 monarch chrysalis’s including one on the bottom rim of a trash can by my back steps. Most are on the siding or on the steps overhang. Still a few Mon cats eating Swamp Milkweed that is about dead. One newly enclosed monarch today.
