I've "found" a few nests.
Typically, soon after I find a ground nest
so does one of our local wild animals. Most likely
skunks, who like to dig up the nests and eat the
bees, they are tough little mammals.
I recently found a nest,...
a few days later it was dug up.
There were still some bees flying around so
I quickly grabbed U's leash and got him moving away.
He ran right back,...
and started back filling the hole.
Luckily, U didn't get stung and we got away safely.
That night our unknown bee eater went after the
nest again and really dug up a big area.
Another nest down.
