Mining Bees; subfamily Andrena

I discovered hundreds of small holes in the ground, mostly beneath our shrubs.  The mining bees are having a grand time foraging and tidying their entrance holes.  I'm using the book, Attracting Native Pollinators: The Xerces Society Guide to Conserving North American Bees and Butterflies and Their Habitat, to identify these native solitary bees.
