In the dwindling evening daylight I had half a dozen Common Nighthawks put on a show over my house in Mason County.
Besides the Nighthawks I saw several migrating Monarch butterflies all flying in the southwest direction. They passed by right up until sunset. The last one I saw at 8:12 PM, 4 minutes before local sunset. It did a couple of laps around one of my White Pines before settling onto one of the branches to roost for the night.
