Mealworm Jail Feeder-Recycled Plastic

Deemed the Bluebird Jail Feeder... it's designed just for Bluebirds.


Innovative caged feeder is made for bluebirds, keeps larger birds out and saves live worms for your blues. Bluebird Feeder may be pole or post-mounted or hung. It should be placed about five feet high, preferably in an open area with trees nearby for perching.

Recycled plastic is impervious to the elements, easy to clean, and long lasting! Features 1.75-inch entries on each end, and caged grid openings which measure 1.5".

Save precious mealworms for bluebirds, and help parents train babies to learn the feeder by leaving the lid open so they can start feeding on their own!

    Great Size

    I have another feeder similar to this but the Starlings can still reach in and get the meal worms. This feeder is larger so the Starlings cannot get to the cup with the meal worms, perfect size. My only complaint is the velcro is not holding and I will have to replace it after removing the cup the first time to clean it.

    Mealworm feeder

    We are happy with the feeder although some bluebirds are still having difficulty figuring out how to get in. I don’t think it’s the fault of the feeder as the holes are the standard size of bluebird houses. I took off the plastic side shields when I received the feeder as I anticipated that problem. Some birds go through the sides and some through the holes on either end. I have read about slightly enlarging the grid holes but can’t do that because then starlings could enter. I do think more blues are figuring it out or, maybe, they have given up but we see fewer struggling to get in. This feeder does significantly reduce the amount of worms the starlings can get. They can only get what has spilled out of the center cup and is near the edge of the feeder floor. We’re pleased that the little carolina wren is also enjoying the mealworms now as well as chickadees and occasional nuthatches. I would recommend this feeder if one has problems with gluttonous starlings.
