The bees in our neighborhood appear to be starving and so they are gathering on our hummingbird feeder to drink the nectar. One of our resident hummingbirds had had enough!
The hummingbirds have come to gather nectar from the feeder hung in the Hibiscus Sorrel bushes. They are having to share the feast with the honeybees from other parts (we lost ours again), who are apparently being left hungry in this very hot and dry weather.
Apparently the neighborhood bees are starving in this hot dry weather. In addition to losing our hive to marauders for the third time, now they are bullying the hummingbirds!
In the Winter we check to make sure the bees have enough food. Ours had eaten one of the supers. We added sugar water for them to eat.
