Monarch abundance

It certainly is good news that the Monarch numbers are up in the
northeastern part of their range - but this should not be surprising given
the very favorable weather reports I have been seeing for that area. Out
here in the northwest part of the range I am not aware of any sightings at
all and it has been a pathetic year for migrants generally due to the
weather.  It is true that insect numbers respond dramatically - both up and
down - to weather and presence/absence of habitat ingredients. Absolutely
nothing that extremist regulators and activists can do will change this
biological reality.
