Were having unseasonably warm weather in western WA. We have been touching the 50's and sun shine. Yesterday in fact there were Robbins in the tree and during a drive out and about I noticed a flowering plum with flowers on it. Were at least a month ahead of schedule.
This leads me to ask.... is there greater chance of starvation if the bees are active and flying collecting pollen only? Or are they more likely to starve when its cool out and they are in a tight cluster?
I'm doing my part in feeding as needed and hope everyone is at least checking their stores.
