    Default May 16th, Okanogan Highlands 4000 feet

    Amelanchier anifolia (June Berry, Service Berry etc) local reports of honeybees utilizing this variety has not been noted at this location, solitary bee of dark color seems to be primary pollinator.

    Kinnikinnick continues, less HB activity
    Dandelion continues, less HB activity

    Fragaria virginiana (wild strawberry) some activity

    Vaccinium caespitosum (dwarf blueberry) just opening

    Balsamorhiza Hookeri (dwarf Balasam root) no activity by HB noticed.

    Current flow seems to be originating from sources unknown, Chokecherry is blooming to 3,500 feet, yellow sweetclover to 1,500 feet so some sources may be within flight distance given terrain.
