Bees Flying Today, One Hive Dies

With the temperature outside reaching 60 degrees, I was energized by the activity outside the hives.  Alas, we did have one death, one of the nucs bred with a Bee Weaver queen.  Looking at the cluster I am guessing that they just did not have enough bees there to overcome some of the blustery cold we have recently had.  I'll have to be more careful with my populations going into winter.
