Mexican Monarchs head north

Posted

A single monarch migrant reached Baton Rouge
LA on February 28. In July, descendants will visit Narrowsburg.

The scene was painted from a girlhood
memory by my friend Bessie Nickens, at age 90. Her father was

friends she loved to explore Louisiana swamps and forests.
When she searched a field guide, decades later, Bessie learned
