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!

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."

    Well the bluebirds are not familiar with this feeder so we have a learning curve! It is a beautifully crafted feeder!

    Starlings can get in!

    The bluebirds didn't take long to get used to it, but starlings can still squeeze in, although it seems to be a last-ditch effort. They can also just BARELY reach the bowl when they stretch from the edge. I also sort of miss seeing my "bloobs", as we call them, sitting on a feeder. I wonder if a jail feeder would work better? I still put mealworms in a tray feeder for the bluebirds. They know that if a starling lands on it I will scare it away, so they sit nearby and come right back.

    Excellent product

    This is so well made! I haven't had luck with the bluebirds coming to feed yet, but am hopeful.
