    I am happy to report my last brood is still around. I see them at the feeder every day. I never see any of the first brood unless some of these ones are part of that brood, but I doubt it. We are going away again for a few days, so it will be interesting to see if they are still here when we get back.

    Yay! I’m seeing mine too. I’m leaving for 4 weeks and I feel so bad because mine are coming and begging for suet every day. But usually they show up when I get home from a trip. I wish I had a neighbor I felt comfortable asking to feed them daily.

    Hi Tammy:
    I felt the same way about going away but not for more than a week, and they did return to feed once I filled the feeder and whistled for them. Today was a bonus when I saw them show up without any feed in the feeder, in fact my husband took the feeder down since we had not seen any blues in a few weeks. Maybe I should have left it up and tried the suet with them. If I see them again, I will have him put it up again and see what happens.

    If you aren’t feeding them, they probably won’t keep appearing even if they are in the area. Is keep feeding them if I were you. I’ll get mealworms when I get back. They did fine with the suet. Almost makes me want to forget buying mealworms and stay with the suet.

    Tammy is correct – need to keep feeding them if you want to see them – they look and stay where there is a food supply. My blues have definitely figured no more worms (besides costly, they will freeze quickly in our Missouri weather) so they are at the suet bowl regularly now. I was only seeing my pair for a while, and recently I saw four of them. Keep that feeder up & filled and you will have a joyous winter, although I’m not sure about your weather there. I live right on the edge of the Missouri north-south line where just a little more north they don’t usually overwinter because it is too cold.
