Following my post about my hives not gaining any weight and no honey in the super, the bees are bringing in lots of pollen, I can see the pepper bush blooming on the other side of the brook, and yet for the first time the bees are all over our hummingbird feeders...?!?!

They found the feeders first(?) You might could take the feeders down for a couple of days and that may redirect them.
When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you - then you know your nation is doomed.

In 5 years they have never bothered the hummingbird feeders - it clearly seems that they are not finding sufficient nectar in the environment, but I'm stumped about what is going wrong this year.
