 I visited Coronado Butterfly Preserve to see over-wintering butterflies.
This is one of the largest Monarch butterfly over-wintering groves in California.
They over-winter here during December through February.
I was told the height of over-wintering is in the month of December.

I got there around 11:00am in the morning of Feb.10, 2008.
It was a nice sunny day, and many butterflies were already in the air.
