Where's Sparkie? Visiting orange and black butterflies


Sparkie is visiting a site in Pismo Beach where traveling orange and black butterflies like to roost every winter. They fly south hundreds or thousands of miles beginning in October to escape freezing northern winters. In the spring, females will journey north laying their eggs on milkweed plants along their way.
