I had a new bee eating bird this spring, of course, because its my first year with bees! It was a young male summer tanager, not ever seen by me in this area but a quick search proved they have been spotted here by local birders. I was ready to shoot him (shhhh, protective mother bee instincts) but my curiosity held me off. Then I read this was normal and wont harm a healthy hive. So I enjoyed his presence and still do...he even quit eating my bees and started eating the grape jelly!
Good dog!, Er, bird!
