Subject: Honey Bees gather pollen from California Black Walnuts
Geographic location of the bug: Mount Washington, Los Angeles, California
While working in the garden Sunday, Daniel noticed a Honey Bee flying around the catkins of an endangered California Black Walnut. He thought this was unusual since the male flowers have no nectar. Upon doing some research, Daniel learned on several sites, including Bee Spoke Info and Beeginner Beekeeper, that Honey Bees gather pollen from such trees as alder, hazel and willow, but no mention of black walnuts.
