    It seems every year after the little ones fledge my blues disappear for a month or so. But they come around for a couple of weeks late in the fall.

    I’ve been away for a while because I hadn’t seen a bluebird since the fledge at the end of summer. I stopped putting any live mealworms out because they were going uneaten. The other day, I thought I spotted a bluebird in a nearby tree. I put dry mealworms in a tiny dish that hangs on my fence and filled the cup in my new cage feeder. I sprinkled some mealworms on my deck rail. They are back! I have 5-7 bluebirds visiting my feeders and birdbath each morning and again in the evening. I don’t know if they will stay all winter, but my winters (in PA) have been relatively mild the last few years. We’ll see!

    I scored two BEAUTIFUL bluebird tree ornaments today at a local Christmas store. I just love them.

    OH Susan that is so good to hear. I have heard a BB early in AM here in this area of PA but have not been able to put an eyeball on it. I have dried mealworms, maybe I ought to give that a try. About the ornaments, were they the only two they had or is it a possibility I might be able to get in touch with the store to see if they would mail me a couple? Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Really great sharp photos. Mine overwinter here in NW Ohio. As usual they disappear in August and return late September.
