Bees - spring cleaning and already bringing in pollen

I was out to check on the bees this afternoon. With the weather being +14 and sunny I expected lots of activity. The bees were busy dragging out dead bees ... and hauling them to the far side of the pile outside the hive (all the darkened area in the bottom right of the 2nd picture below) - a huge job.

But, I was surprised to find so many bees bringing in pollen already. I don't know which plants are blooming this early in the season. We'll have to try to figure it out. Any ideas?
