i can keep the robins off the hives, but not the swallows out of the air.
Need more practice at the range  huh

I've got to deal with the robins and some swallows too.  The darn robins do like to hang out next to the hives and snack away in the spring.  They seem to move on to other things later on.  Luckily I only have about a half dozen swallows to contend with.  I will admit they are a pain in the butt  grin

Purple Martins are the "on the wing" bee eaters here but I don't mind to much cause they decimate the mosquito population. Other birds that make a meal of my bees include blue jays,  blue birds and mocking birds. I don't really think that they substantially impact the numbers that much.
