Bringing home the bacon

This beautiful male bluebird is reaching deep into a glass dessert dish in order to pick-up offered wax worms/mealworms. Mr. Bluebird is capable of handling 6 at a time in order to return to a nearby nesting box where Mrs. Bluebird and 6 fledgling chicks await. If you are fortunate enough to have a nesting bluebird family on your property, you can purchase mealworms locally at Mrs. O’s Bait & Tackle in downtown Rockford. Bluebirds love these tasty little morsels so much that they oftentimes can be coaxed to feed directly from your hand. Photo by CLIFF HILL
