Feeding Bluebirds: What Do They Really Want?
If you are lucky enough to have one or more of these lovely blue-colored thrushes visiting your property, you are the envy of bluebird-less bird watchers everywhere. Being insect eaters for most of the year, bluebirds are not naturally inclined to visit bird feeders. However, there are a few feeder offerings that they will eat, including mealworms, suet dough, fruit, and sunflower bits. You'll want to be careful, though, that you don't offer your bluebird visitors too much of a good thing.
