Bluebird Feeders and Bulk Mealworms
Bluebird Feeders and live mealworms are key elements to attract these desirable birds! Traditional blue bird feeders keep larger birds out and are designed for feeding one of their favorites... mealworms! Provide nesting sites in your yard, and soon bluebirds will be regulars!
Use Specialty Feeders to Entice Bluebirds
Use Fly-In and dish type bluebird feeders to entice these sweet songbirds to your yard.
Traditional (or fly-in) bluebird feeders are enclosed, they resemeble a birdhouse, with plexi-glass windows and entrance/exit holes the same size as a bluebirds' nest box.
For some reason, most birds will not enter a feeder, but the bluebird will. This type of feeder is excellent for feeding meal worms... a favorite treat! Mealworms may also be fed on a platform or in a dish or type feeder. But... be it a hanging dish or staked one, once discovered, many other birds will devour your mealworms in no time flat!
The bluebird diet consists mostly of insects in spring and summer. They'll resort to berries and suet in colder months, and possibly sunflower hearts, though not considered seed eaters. So bluebirds aren't likely to visit your other bird feeders.
We feed bluebirds for the simple pleasure of watching these beautiful winged creatures. Parents raising fledgelings with juveniles' help is like witnessing a storybook tale!
Providing adequate nest sites in open spaces is highly encouraged using NABS Approved bluebird houses. Birdbaths will also entice "Blues" and other songbirds to your yard. Many Eastern Bluebirds will over-winter, provided there is an adequate natural food source (with supplemental live mealworms) and a consistent fresh water source, like a heated bird bath.
