Bit of a surprise I gather. There were at least two (female also added separately) among what I presume were native lignaria. This mason bee house has not been maintained for a couple years, so I'm not sure where these originated or if they're established.

so there have been lots of taurus in the area. this one started picking up in frequency, never saw it land anywhere. didn't know if it was a bigger form of taurus or what. it was only attracted to bricks, and less often wood. haven't really seen many of them in the last few days. behavior was completely different than the taurus who were erratically flying fast from flower to flower, hard to keep up with. this one would just have at a brick, then stay there, never land, then dark off to another brick. much bigger than the taurus that have been pollinating flowers over the last month

Description

Saw quite a few different individuals all in the same area digging burrows in hard-packed earth along a trail next to the Arkansas River. They were all performing the same behavior- excavating stones/dirt from their holes and bringing down small twigs or dried pieces of grass. I watched these bees for hours just working away at their burrows. They were also surprisingly picky with their grass/twig selection, sometimes investigating 10+ pieces before finally settling on one fit for the nest.

Both antennae of this bee are adorned with the remnants of tiny ant heads. Apparently, after being attacked by ants, this bee was able to remove the ant bodies (or they just fell off) but their heads remain firmly attached where they latched on to the antennae with a death-grip (ouch!). These ants are common in the same Prickly Pear Cactus flowers where this bee normally forages for nectar and pollen.
