Flower-Visiting Insects and Birds
of Trumpet Creeper

Campsis radicans (Trumpet Creeper)
(Hummingbirds suck nectar from flowers, while orioles perforate [prf] the flowers near their corollas to steal nectar [sn@prf], and sometimes hummingbirds sucked nectar from these perforations as well; according to Robertson, bees collect pollen from flowers & are non-pollinating, however Bertin found that the honeybee and bumblebees sometimes sucked nectar within the flowers and successfully pollinated them; Halictid bees, ants, and flies suck nectar from extra-floral nectaries; observations are from Robertson, Bertin, and Smith et al.)
