The best time to see the Monarch Butterfly is late September to early October. Look for it on the coastal barrens often perching on New England Asters and Canada Hawkweed. Mid morning visits are the best which gives the Monarchs time to dry their wings on the warm morning sun. If the wind is strong they tend to fly high and fast especially if its a favourable north wind.
