Today's unseasonably warm weather brought several species out of hiding (or hibernation) This bee landed on a bowl of scraps that was waiting to be dumped into the field. I went in and brought out some honey and drizzled a little onto the edge of the bowl, this little lady immediately went to it and began lapping it up as if she was starving. She stayed with that honey for well over 20 minutes. I'm not sure if she is a honey bee or not, she looked different to me. One other bee landed on the bird feeder near me and I was able to get it to crawl onto my finger and it definitely was a honey bee, but this one I am unsure.
