Unfortunately have seen hardly any monarchs this year despite copious amounts of milkweed growing everywhere on our farm. There’s a lot of milkweed tussock. Last night we had the porch doors open and it sounded like we were on the African savanna about 11 o’clock there was it a Stericha shrieking we lost two chickens I’m still not sure what got them but they were feathers everywhere from a Rhode Island red and a barred rock. Lots of coyote activity last night as well and what sounded like a fox shipping but could’ve also been a small dog. No idea why suddenly last night there was so much nocturnal activity we haven’t had that in a while. Perhaps the Pisces full moon.
