Bird Feeder help

Post  littlejo on 11/28/2011, 2:32 pm

I'm really not into bird watching, for down here in the south we really don't have a long winter. We do get lots of traveling/migrating birds, either now or in the Spring. To list all in a thread would take pages.

But, I am having visitors to my hummingbird feeders. I saw none during the summer. I only had a type of bumble bee as pollinator in my garden.

Are these honey bees? Maybe someone has located a hive nearby, they used to yrs. ago.

They look like honey bees to me, too. If I were concerned, I would take the feeder down for awhile and maybe they move on.

But, honestly, they won't do any harm. And, they won't chase off any hummingbirds. In fact, they may help some find the feeder if they are still migrating through or setting up winter residence. And, honey bees don't consume much, either.
