I used to put cracked corn out for birds. At the time deer could get to that area. On sunny days during the winter the bees would gather the fines just like they gather pollen. One day the bees were work ing the corn very well when a young buck decided to grab a mouthful of corn, bees and all. He started shaking his head wildy and then took off running with bees in hot pursuit.And we had the first »Duck Incident« with the bees: Fluffy Fluffbutt Duck, one of my white layers investigated the bee-hives while i was busy digging a hole in the ground for my new rhubarb-plant. When all of the sudden there was that characteristic loud humming of a bee that is trapped somewhere, like between some white feathers…
Fluffy outright panicked and tried to run away from a bee that was stuck in her feathers. I have never seen a duck of her breed running that fast. 🤣
No clue if she was stung or what happened to that bee, but Fluffy is not going anywhere near those white-things ever again.
