    You use dead birds to keep the flocks from congregating around bee yards, and the easy meals they provide.
    It works with keeping starlings out of the cherry trees also. also what works in starlings is catching one and keep it in a cage set it out side and let the cat come and eye him up. He lets out an alarm screech that tells the flock to stay away.
    Nice sign and happy New Year to you also.

    that is a mighty pretty bird and the honey flowing from the extractor looks awfully pretty also.

    we have a lot of wild mustard here and this crop is quite often the first significant flowers we will see in the early spring time.

    ​thanks for sharing the pictures.

    interesting color of the Coriander pollen. But check out picture #3 the number of bees that have pollen loads in the pollen baskets. That is Wild don't see that many bees all with pollen loads all in one place and at one time very often. Does the brood nest get pollen bound and do you trap and sell pollen? Is there a market for pollen in India? Thanks for sharing the photos Ajaz

    Thanks for the link Ajaz. I had seen that article before and discounted it. But, coming from you, made me study it again. Maybe what I had photographed and assumed was standing on display in its natural position, was actually sitting on its side and the cells I saw "on top" were really on the side of the collected honey, not on the top. If what I saw was honey from Apis dorsata, I'm amazed at the lack of any cells or bee spaces inside the mass of crystalized honey. Could it be that they disassemble old inner combs and build new outer combs as their ball of stored honey expands outwards?
    Live and learn.
    Thanks again

    @ApisBees
    There is no market of pollen in India...
    We came here in 10th of November and the bees were 2-5 frames now our bees are more than 12 frames...
    We make bees here and extract honey as much as we want then move 1150 miles back to our home for wild flowers in march 1

    Wow is right, that looks like more than I would get from one hive.

    Thanks for all the great pictures. What type of hive housed (produced) that huge honey comb?
