Ever so often when I'm looking at my bees one will come along and sound so much louder than the others. Almost an angry sound with somewhat a darting flying pattern. Could this be a drone? a warning? robber? or just a bad driver? The other bees will be just humming along.

My observation is drones make that kind of sound.

this time of year the drones are getting fatter and the girls making them get out and do something. so they kind of have a little more wieght load to care so they have to flap harder. at least that what my wife says I sound like after a holiday dinner and taking out the trash. tongue Undecided Kiss

Yep, drones. I've sat and watched the bees many times and hear a Piper Cub coming in for a landing.
