Every year there comes a time when we achieve "Migration Magic" around here. Usually it occurs around September 11. By now everybody knows who everybody else is and have become one happy family. The young birds have discovered there is no more mystery about the honeybees: "They Sting". Usually one sting is enough for the birds to hone their skills of not getting stung! I suggest one sting is good for the birds as it builds up their immune system for the big trip, somewhat like a human getting a flu shot. I have never found a dead bird on the ground from stings or wounds. The only dead birds I have witnessed are from feral cat hunters (a real problem all over). I built fences to keep them out which works. The honeybees and hummers have worked out a sharing system at the feeders. There is only one Queen around here: The Texas Red Wasp! Everybody gives right of way to her! Enjoy your photostudy (link to album below)!
