THOUSAND PALMS, CA - MARCH 09: Painted lady butterflies pause to feed on the nectar of California's second 'super bloom' in two years during a rare mass migration triggered by recent abundant rainfall on March 9, 2019 near Thousand Palms, California. A wet winter with a possible link to the El Niño climate pattern fueled vegetation growth in northern Mexico, giving painted lady caterpillars an abundant food supply and causing millions of the resulting butterflies to embark on a one-way migration to the Northwest and Canada. The butterflies are expected to pass through the region for just a few weeks. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

The Butterflies Are Coming!

It seems like the extra wet winter is bringing the people of the Bay Area a surprise.

It is estimated that around a BILLION Painted Lady butterflies are going to fly past the Bay on their trip form Southern California to Oregon.

According the Sf Weekly it’s going to be the biggest swarm of butterfly to come to the Bay Area since 2005.
