Bird eating my bees
Noticed a mess on a bench near the entrance to the hive and another one under a branch of a tree about 2 feet away. At first I just thought some birds had taken shelter from the rain.. But then I noticed the bird mess was littered with bee bodies Generally just the back 1/2.. Stingers still in them.
Then I saw a small yellow bird swooping in and catching bees in the air and then sitting on a branch and eating them.
Never noticed this type of bird before, but it is really eating well.
Piles of bee remains in a couple of places. Quite a few actually...
Anyone else having this problem ??
