Entrance Activity to a New Top Bar Hive
This is 15 mins. of video of the entrance to my new, and first, top bar hive, recorded last Saturday, 9 April 2011. SteveBee and I installed a swarm that he captured two days earlier (7 April 2011) near his home 15 miles away.
Fortunately, the weather was perfect early Saturday morning so the installation went off without a hitch. Unfortunately, the wind picked up after installation when this video was recorded so the bee audio is light. The birds and wind chimes however command the microphone.

Excellent video. Thank you very much for sharing. They look like they are doing well. I always enjoy watching orientation flights.
