Bees out of the box

I’m a little surprised.  When I tried peeking in to the hive yesterday, bees were sitting on the box and I didn’t see a lot of movement toward the front of the hive.  It appears that they got moving when I finally calmed down and left them alone.  This morning when I went out to remove the box, they were ALL clustered up at the front and about a quarter of the quart of sugar syrup was gone.

It’s difficult to take a picture through the plexiglass, but you can kind of tell.
It looks like about 20 didn’t make it and considering how they are put in the box, that’s pretty impressive.

Actual package creation starts at 3 minutes.
