New package has small cluster hanging out

915 2
I installed a package on Saturday afternoon. On Sunday I noticed a small cluster of bees hanging out under the eave of the outer cover (see photo). They were still there this morning, presumably they stayed there overnight - it’s dropping to high 40s here in the Seattle area. I’ve not yet check to see if they’ve freed their queen nor have I popped the cover to see if I can tell what their clustering around. Any ideas what this behavior is all about before I start disrupting things?
