An estimated 2000 Monarch butterflies roosted overnight in the trees along the dunes of Ocean Ave at St Peters Church in Cape May Point,  Wednesday Nov. 1, 2017.  The Monarchs lay-over at Cape May Point waiting for the right weather conditions to cross the Delaware Bay, on their annual migration to Mexico. This year has been the best year since 2012 for the number of Monarchs moving through Southern New Jersey according to the NJ Audubon Cape May Bird Observatory.
