A Butterfly Migration Super Highway Could Bring Millions Of Monarchs Through North Carolina This Fall

The flyways in North Carolina have been very busy this year. Most recently, there was a swarm of dragonflies migrating through the state that was so big it showed up on weather radar (you can read about it here). And now, it’s time for the annual Monarch butterfly migration! Each fall, millions and millions of these dainty, winged creatures leave their summer roosts in the north and travel thousands of miles southward to their overwintering spots found in Mexico and parts of the U.S.

The migration into and through North Carolina has reportedly already begun. Have you spotted more butterflies than usual in recent days? We’d love to know and to see your photos in the comments!
