    Default Saw first drone today

    My 2 handfuls of overwintered bees have built up to package size and today was finally sunny and calm. They must've gotten stir crazy this last week of windy rain because they are all out in front of the hive,crawling and orienting or flying off to work. What a joyful sight for me! The workers bringing pollen back can hardly get in the door. And then I saw my first drone of 2014 crawl out and look at the world! Oh oh. I better start making space in that brood nest already!!!

    Today I saw a White eyed drone!!! That's a first for me. He flew and crawled to the top of the hive and I grabbed him and took a good look. Internet says he's blind but will be fed,just no queen chasing
