750 feet - Bees bringing "orange" pollen, very lightly, only a few bees have found it to work. Could not confirm what is being worked and at what elevation.

White Popular has begun to bloom, only about 5% or so. Bees are starting to work. Still hitting the pollen substitute very hard.

Red Maples are swollen, but have not opened yet. They bloom and then leaf out. Hard maples are still a ways off as they leaf out and then bloom.
