Butterfly effect

I don't know much about butterflies, but I sure have seen a lot of monarch butterflies around in Chicago and Cleveland during the past week. A quick check of Wikipedia seems to indicate they are migrating to their wintering grounds in Mexico.

Other recent wildlife highlights: two coyotes lounging in the grass along Lake Shore Drive just south of McCormick Place; a broad-winged hawk at my friend's house in Avon Lake, Ohio; red-tailed hawk, fox squirrel, turkey vulture and most notably yellow-billed cuckoo here at the homestead.
