Queen on the landing board

Sunday evening I was observing the bee's coming and going from one of my hives. I saw this bee land that was definitely not a worker but did not look like a drone either. It went into the hive and then every little bit it would come back out on the landing board and walk around and then take flight, fly around the hive and then back to the landing board and back into the hive. This occurred several times. I believe that this hive swarmed the first of May based on the acivity around the hive. My guess is that I have a virgin queen that was getting orientated. Have you guys ever seen this happen? I am going to wait a week or so before inspecting the hive for new brood.
