More birds no bees (yet)

My little Robbins are coming along nicely as you can see, and the chaps and I feel inspired by the parents work rate in feeding them....or so I keep telling them.

Right about the bees Thudders!

Mrs S said exactly the same when the sun was on the apple trees today - where are they?

We have a nest of little finches under the balcony/deck and hear their chirps and parents songs thru the window.
Unfortunately we also have some rude crows and their retarded offspring - of which they are overly protective, and the constant kaaw-kaww-kaawing is a reminder of Grandpa's wonderful old Browning shotgun and its rightful purpose. God I hate crows.

Bees are essential for nature. What's happened to them ?

Scrobs and EK.... I've read a couple of articles lately about bee problems but have only now noticed the reality of their abscence, rather worrying.

The bees in California have been hit with some virus that kills them by the colony load.
