Feeding Time!

July 26, 2009

It is a good idea to provide plenty of mealworms in a convenient location to help bluebirds with the task of feeding nestlings.  You will also get to see the juvenile bluebirds from earlier clutches visit the feeder along with the adult bluebirds.

This is the third and final clutch of 2009.  It has been a very productive nesting season with 14 new bluebirds introduced into the population.
