Gilbertson Hanging Bluebird Feeder

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

Innovative design (by a bluebird conservationist) 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-sided entry and exit which bluebirds prefer. Easy to fill, one removable rail has magnetic catch 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.

New hanging bluebird feeder keeps live or dried mealworms reserved for your bluebirds!

Available in Blue Only

Measures 12.5" x 12.5" x 4"

Item Weight 5.0 lb
Material: Recycled Plastic, Stainless Hardware
Handmade USA

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."

    Although the original solid blue panels were not available anymore because of supply issues, I'm very happy with the look of the blue and white alternative. It took a little longer because of disruptions in the supply chain, but the wait was worth it. The communication and customer service was excellent ! Looking forward to seeing some bluebirds when the weather warms up here in Northern Michigan.

    I love this bird house! I currently have a nesting pair of EBB in my back yard, and they use it all day. I would highly recommend it!

    I really like the design. Blue birds nesting in a little bluebird house, but not eating the mealworms. I took one bar put as suggested. Purple Finches & Wrens venture in. The feeder is hanging with a seed feeder & suit. Any suggestions to attract my Bluebirds to the feeder?
