Here come the butterflies

It’s time for butterflies!

Every spring Monarch butterflies migrate from the fir forests of central Mexico to Texas to lay eggs.  From Texas, the Monarchs keep moving throughout North America during the late spring and summer.  After their summer migration they will travel back down south, and we can see them again in September.

Monarchs like it here when it’s warm, humid and there are southerly winds. When a cold front comes through, they keep heading up north. Check out this map.

Monarchs migration patterns.

Have you spotted any Monarchs yet? Let us know!

For more information on the butterflies and their migration, check out Texas’ website on them, or the University of Kansas’ Monarch Watch website.
