    On the Monhegan Calendar there is a book discussion scheduled for July 29 for the book entitled”A Month in the Country.” However there is no book author provided and there are two books published by this title, one written by J.L. Carr and the other by Ivan Turgenev. Please clarify to me which book is being discussed. Thank you.

    Good morning. I have never been to Monhegan Island but have been told how beautiful your Island is. I would love to plan a one day trip this fall and have heard that monarch butterflies gather and rest there in numbers on their migration flight. Can you inform me on the best time to come in order to experience this? I cannot find anything online or anywhere else to seek information. Thank you so much.

    • Hi Wendy,

      So, while we do have monarchs, sadly their numbers are decreasing here as elsewhere in the country. They’re out right now, but you won’t see huge amounts of them. I’m wondering if possibly it was a different area that this happens in? I doubt it is in Maine however.

    I have seen them in numbers once on the back side resting in the evergreens and then feeding in the field in the morning but it was several years ago and it’s pretty hit or miss – but similar time to the bird migration, around 3rd week of September.

  6. Fantastic web site. Lots of helpful information here. I’m sending it to some friends
    ans additionally sharing in delicious. And obviously, thanks in your effort!
