Here's my new feeder.  You'll quickly surmise that it's my first time using my new camcorder.  Smiley

Good video.    If you are worried about the shaky cam, they have lots of video stabilization programs out there to smooth it out.    I really like the way you set up the feeders on the TB hives.   I do not us those feeders any more because I have sugar ants real bad here and they were getting most of the feed.   I also had lots of SHB hiding around in them.   But they are easy to use feeders.   Good set up there.

"The best laid plans of mice and men go oft' awry."
I installed the two 3# packages of bees two days ago.  I checked both feeders yesterday; there were over one hundred drowned and/or half dead bees floating in the sugar water.  The bees were able to get under the white covers some way.  I removed the white covers and put a handful of straw into the sugar water.  I looked this morning, and there were still a few drowned bees, but only a few; others were walking on the straw and taking sugar water.  After things settle down in a couple of days, I'm going to remove the straw and put in wooden sticks instead or with some straw.  It's working now, but I sure hated losing those first bees just to learn what not to do.

I deleted the video from YouTube. I'll make another one later.
