Bee for MeBee for Me


The feeding activity for the birds, especially the hummingbirds,  has increased significantly over the past couple of weeks.  During the same time, visits from the Baltimore orioles has dropped significantly.  

The grape jelly feeders usually dominated by the orioles have been taken over by yellow jackets which some birds, like hummingbirds, stay away from.

The exception appears to be the finches which hang around the grape jelly feeders and periodically pluck a yellow jacket from the frenzy which they appear to enjoy as part of there protein diet.

Of course, we welcome the activity personally and photographically.
