Bluebird Blog ~ Feeding Babies

Updating you on this 13th day since the bluebird babies were born in my backyard house. The photo attached is the female (eating inside the feeder), and the male (on top of the feeder pole). They are eating mealworms. Their favorite food. The feeder works because it is screened in to keep out larger birds. Most birds enjoy worms as well, this is the only safe way I have found to provide mealworms to the bluebirds. I still have mockingbirds and robins trying to get to the worms but all they can do is flutter their wings, they cannot get inside.

The babies will be fledging in the next few days. A sad feeling is coming as they leave the nest. But I am so proud of what I have helped accomplish. I provided a safe environment, food, water and shelter for these bluebirds to start their family. Now the rest is up to them.

And when he sings to you, Though you’re deep in blue, You will see a ray of light creep through, And so remember this, life is no abyss, Somewhere there’s a bluebird of happiness. Life is sweet, tender and complete, when you find the bluebird of happiness.  ~ Bluebird of Happiness by Edward Heyman & Harry Parr Davies, 1934

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.
