Not suitable for bluebirds By Janet

Purchased this feeder for my bluebirds. I have had it hanging for about 3 weeks and it is not suitable for the bluebirds. They will land on the ports but are not able to obtain the mealworm. I think they are too big for this feeder. They give up and fly away. I would return it if I had not bought out of state.

Bluebirds love mealworms but so do others. Open tray feeders were an invitation to every bird in the neighborhood, especially Starlings and Blackbirds. Ten worms were splashed on the ground for every one they ate! I discovered this feeder by accident. Bigger birds (or squirrels) can't get a grip. It is perfect for the bluebirds and those cannibal sparrows don't seem to like them. The vertical slats hold in the worms but make it fairly easy to get at them and there is very little waste. Cleaning and refilling is easy. Sturdier material might be nice but I will take the trade-off. My local hardware store charged me $25 for one. Shop around or buy online!

Keeps the mealworms fresh! By Barbara

Excellent mealworm feeder keeps them from getting wet and molding. I gave it 4 stars because it could use to be twice as large with 4 ports instead of 2:) Otherwise, great improvement to my feeder that is open to the elements!

Nice, well-built feeder, but, the birds don't seem to like it. By JC

Nice, well-built feeder, but, the birds don't seem to like it. After several weeks, I haven't seen a single bird on it. My meal-worms may be the problem. I'm using some that I bought a year ago & when I rub them between my fingers there's nothing but dust. I don't know if this is normal or not & haven't had a chance to but a fresh supply.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What are the most popular bird seeds to use?

A: Black Oil Sunflower Seed is the most popular bird seed. It is much smaller than the traditional sunflower seed and best for those birds with smaller bills, such as the sparrow, junco and goldfinch. This seed is accepted by the greatest variety of birds.

Mixed Seed is also popular. It is best to buy the mixes that contain white proso millet, a tiny cream colored seed with a shiny shell. Mixes containing finely cracked corn and black oil sunflower are also preferred by a large number of birds.

Niger (Thistle Seed) is imported from Africa and Asia. Niger won't germinate, but it does have a tendency to become moldy due to lack of air circulation. If you notice mold on the seed, it must be removed from the feeder and the feeder must be cleaned thoroughly.


Q: How do I clean my bird feeders?

A: Before filling your feeder with fresh seed, it is recommended that the following precautions are taken:

  1. Remove all old seed.
  2. Soak feeder in water.
  3. Scrub feeder and allow to air dry.
  4. Rake and remove accumulated hulls and droppings from underneath the feeders.
  5. Spread mulch (bark or wood) under the feeder, replace mulch when soiled.
  6. Thoroughly wash hands after handling and cleaning feeders.

Q: What is the importance of providing water for wild birds?

A: Wild birds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need seed. Birds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also for bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide birds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for birds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy. By adding a water source, you also can attract a larger variety of birds to your yard. You may even attract more colorful birds that don't eat seed, but are in need of water!
