I haven't seen any this year either and I have been checking the milkweed
for chrysalis' and caterpillars. Maybe the never ending rains (until
recently) have something to do with their low numbers. Just a thought.

Sorry, this is a little off topic for bird, but has anyone seen a Monarch
butterfly this year? I
always leave the milkweed in my garden for them. By now there are usually
some but I
have yet to see any this year.
