    Some warblers that passed by early this spring before the bees were fully out. They come for a few days in May on their way to the boreal forest up north. Most are from Tennassee. Our spring time is a time of gale force winds so any photography during these conditions is quite challenging. Without these birds, the plums would be bare. 19601063_1380416302041053_195383894080378221_n.jpg

    The bees do love the Stevo. However they come out only in force after the blossoms have dropped. We get some mason bees so it is about half- half bees to bird pollination.

    Such a bounty of nectar for the tiny travellers.
    It can be hard to provide a suitable food source & safe temporary habitat for small birds when there are so many large meat eating birds inhabiting our gardens.
