Think they like the feeder.

Think the wild bees like the feeder to.  Definitely more than the one hive he has using it.

If you're in a dearth bees will come from all over to a feeder. The majority of those could be from a close by hive though. I had a similar crowd when I put some extracted frames out for them to clean up. There was a lot of fighting when I did it. I can't tell if there is fighting in your video but I am guessing my event was from multiple hives trying to feed.

Didnt notice any fighting, he has two of that style feeder out.  And they both have the same amount of activity.  Definitely a lot of wild bees hitting them.  The only fighting I saw was the bees keeping the vekvet ant out of the feeder.
