I haven't seen too many lately. We did have our 1st hatch out today. I read in the local paper that the fall migration is in the next 2 weeks so hoping to see more. Is it ok to cut back the regular milkweed? I wouldn't think they would be laying eggs this late in the year. We have 6 more monarch to hatch, 9 black swallowtails plus just had another batch of swallowtail eggs hatch.

My milk weed was totally stripped of leaves, never did see a cat. It is just stems sticking up right now.

My two feeders hold around 20 lbs of seed each, enough falls to satisfy all the birds, squirrels, ground hog and whatever else shows up.

I could put 10 lbs of seed out daily. Not to mention the peanut feeder hanging, they are pigs. Dawn to dusk.

Always seeing goldfinches on the coneflowers this time of year. It seems they've just about finished all the coneflower seeds already.
