Gilbertson Hanging Bluebird Feeder

Gilbertston style hanging bluebird feeder for meal worms is updated in recycled plastic, lets bluebirds dine in peace!

Innovative design keeps starlings, mockingbirds and robins out of worms! Bluebirds love the easy in and out fly-in style that's open on all sides, saves meal worms from larger bully birds. Carolina wrens, chickadees, even orioles are known to use the patio style bluebird bird feeder.

Features 4-side entry and exit which bluebirds prefer. Easy to fill, one removable rail has locking pin for easy dish access.

Non-porous poly-lumber is easier to clean than wood, resists weather and insect damage. Stainless steel hardware, complete with large eye-hook for quick hanging.

Customer's good Idea:

"Quick update.  Put up the new feeder with that one bar removed to allow easier access.  Put mealworms in dish inside and sprinkled a few worms & seed on top of feeder and around the inside.  Nothing for first 2 hrs, then chickadees & house finches started to explore.  Within about 20 more min bluebirds were feeding on top and a few soon found their way inside where bar was absent.  

They already seem pretty comfortable going in and out thru that larger gap.
My current plan is to leave that bar off for the first day or 2 and then put it in place once the bluebirds have gotten used to things and we've had a chance to see how the local starlings react to the feeder.  We've got a big snowstorm starting tomorrow around superbowl time.
Thanks again for your help."

Mealworm feeder

Shipping took a little longer than anticipated, but definitely worth the wait. Larger birds can't get in and the mealworms are lasting much longer. It took a while for the bluebirds to get used to the feeder but I'm looking forward to this summer's fledglings diving in for a meal.

My bluebirds love eating from this feeder! They can enjoy mealworms without being bothered by the starlings that used to chase them away from my previous feeder.

Birds love it, and the larger birds can't get in. Very sturdy and well made.

Success the first day!

I am in love with my new feeder. A Carolina Wren began using it within minutes of putting it out and within a few hours, my normally apprehensive to change bluebirds began using it. The Starlings can only hang on for a moment and get what is outside of the bowl on the edges of the feeder before they give up and fly off. I went from over 20 starlings to just 2-4 coming to the feeder while one tries and then all fly off. I've now had chickadees, tufted titmice and nuthatches using it too for mealworms. I'm very happy with this feeder and am so glad I purchased it. The quality is excellent! Shipping was so fast as I got it in a few days. Also Beth was extremely responsive to questions and letting me know when my product was shipped. I could not be more pleased with my purchase or experience.
