Feeding mealworms to juveniles

Adult male bluebird feeding mealworms to the juveniles from the last clutch and to the adult female bluebird who is tending five eggs in the Gilbertson nest box.

Mealworms really help out bluebirds when they are feeding their young and while the female bluebird is tending the nest.

If you want a “bluebird friendly” yard, be sure to provide mealworms.
