We looked at photos on-line but can't find the name for this. These bees (at least we think they are some type of bee) have been in my oregano and thyme all summer long.
The small produce stand just up the road, has beehives up against the trees, that run along a small creek. I'm not sure if these are from his hives.
While I was out in the garden, this injured hawk appeared in a clearing on our property. We immediately called the division of wildlife, who gave us a phone number to someone local. Volunteers came out to the farm.
Unfortunately, right before the volunteers arrived, it walked into the tree line and we could not find him/her after that. Later in the day I could hear him/her crying for help. If it shows back up, we will put a laundry basket over it until they arrive. I was also given an even better tip - toss a sheet over it, then the basket, and slowly pull the sheet out.
