butterfly Track the Spring 2013 Monarch Butterfly Migration

Journey North Monarch Butterfly Migration - Spring 2013
Quote:
In a unique partnership, you can join students and scientists across North America this spring to track the monarch butterfly's migration from Mexico.

Spring migration begins in March, and an announcement comes from Mexico that the monarchs are on their way. After living off their fat reserves all winter, tens of millions of monarch butterflies head northward. With just a few weeks to live, they race to produce the next generation.

I never see monarchs on my property in the spring, only in the fall when there are presumably more of them returning than made it north from Mexico (or if that isn't the reason, I don't know what is.)
