A free-hanging honey bee nest in Minnesota
This large, free-hanging honey bee nest was discovered by Greg Munson of Rochester, Minnesota. Greg found the nest in February, tucked in the Wiscoy Valley between Rushford and Houston. “It is beautiful bluff country with bald eagles in abundance, as well as occasional rarer golden eagles, along with lots of other wildlife and varied habitat,” he said.
Greg, a nature columnist with the Rochester Post Bulletin, asked the landowner for permission to take down the nest for display at the local nature center. Now, with permission granted, Greg has a major project ahead. It will be difficult to move it, so let’s wish him the best.
