Now every tree can be a birdfeeder. No other food attracts more birds than
Jim's Birdacious Bark Butter.
Bluebirds primarily eat insects when available and supplement this main diet of insects with various fruits and berries. Raisins, nut meats, sunflower chips, meal worms and prepared food such as WBU Suet Snacks are all readily eaten by bluebirds.
Bluebirds can be attracted to feeders. Providing an easy source of food allows bluebirds to spend their energy on nest building and caring for their young instead of foraging for food.
Bluebird feeders were designed to make it harder for other species of larger birds to reach the food. Any bird that is the same size or smaller than a bluebird could potentially fit into the feeder. Sometimes it takes putting food on a tray close to the bluebird feeder before the bluebirds catch on. The feeder may need to be moved away from human dwellings if sparrows seem to be a problem. If you find that wrens or other birds are competing for food in the bluebird feeder, adding another feeder is suggested.
Feeders should be placed in an area that is visible to the birds. Find a place that is in an area that the birds frequent to find their food. It is not recommended to place the feeder close to bluebird or other houses. If a mockingbird in the area is keeping other birds from reaching the feeder, the feeder may need to be moved.
Bluebirds need to ‘learn’ to eat from a bluebird feeder. Feeders should have a platform underneath the entrance hole so that food can be placed on the platform while the bluebird is learning to go inside the feeder to eat.
