Today at the Macricostas Preserve of Steep Rock I had at least 12 
Mourning Cloaks "hilltopping" along a 100 yard stretch of old logging 
road at the top of the ridge.  They were very aggressive, forming 
groups of 2, 3 or in one case 4 individuals dogfighting up and up 
until they reached the top of the trees, at which point they would 
split apart and return to their territories.  They were interested in 
me as well sometimes approaching so closely I could hear their wingbeats.
