Oscar First Inspection

Went into the Oscar hive for the first time to check for signs of egg laying, etc.  Found capped brood and open larvae, so I know the queen is laying.  Jack and I found the queen as well.  There is comb on frames one through six and the bees are continuing to bring in pollen.   I replaced the Brushy Mountain top feeder with a Boardman feeder over the hole in the inner cover.  Too many drowned bees.  I am going to leave them to their business for another week or so before I go back in.  Photo credits go to my son Jack.
