Some warblers that passed by early this spring before the bees were fully out. They come for a few days in May on their way to the boreal forest up north. Most are from Tennassee. Our spring time is a time of gale force winds so any photography during these conditions is quite challenging. Without these birds, the plums would be bare.

The bees do love the Stevo. However they come out only in force after the blossoms have dropped. We get some mason bees so it is about half- half bees to bird pollination.

Such a bounty of nectar for the tiny travellers.
It can be hard to provide a suitable food source & safe temporary habitat for small birds when there are so many large meat eating birds inhabiting our gardens.
