    Bluebirds are my favorite. I have boxes and wait on them every year.

    We have them already. I heard a screeching out back and that's when I knew they were here. I love birds.

    I put out meal worms for my bluebirds. They love them! It's a big treat because I don't go to the store too often and buy worms! for birds :) We have buds on dogwoods, blooms on bartlett pear trees and cherry trees. The buttercups are up and in bloom too. Spring is in the air. It was 80 degrees one day last week although it is back in the 30's at night but this is how the season CHANGES- Yea :)

    Cyn, me too!!!!! True story....I am terrified of worms. Hate them so much, but I buy them for the bluebirds, and make BF and the kids put them in the little feeder for me!

    Cyn, where do you find the worms? we have a pair that has raised 4-5 ????nest of babies, don't know what they're called but want them to stay, also does anybody know how to attract red birds? we tried sunflower seeds but only had onw passerby, I would like for the mocking birds and blue jays to leave tho. LOL :oops: we have oodles of doves, 3-4 different kinds
