Added syrup to Hive A

Hive A got syrup when they were installed on April 22. I opened the top of the hive to refill the hive top feeder today, and to clean out a lot of dead bees. Curiously. several dozen bees were clustered beneath the inner cover, clinging to the bottom corner of it. I shook them off on the ground in front of the hive. I saw this same behavior two days ago when I did the main hive inspection. Both hives appear to be very active. Today was sunny with occasional showers.
