Nesting Bees

Yesterday afternoon (26 June 2016), I noticed a lot of activity around our native bee nesting box.  Several dozen bees recently emerged as adults.  The male bees were buzzing around the nesting box trying to attract females.  Females were busy clearing nesting sites of last year's nesting materials, collecting pollen, and laying preparing to lay eggs.  Here is a short video showing some of the activity.
