    I am just so excited – I have seen SIX bluebirds at my suet feeder lately, for about 2 weeks. I have had four all along (mama, papa and 2 youngins) but there are now six, which would be the parents and the 4 from last nesting. Of course, I have to watch very carefully, as I have at least 15 or 20 others birds there, also (juncos, white crowned sparrows, HOSP) I have two cage feeders, and they sure come in handy in the wintertime. It brings a smile on my face, especially during this pandemic period, as I spend most of my time now at home.

    Hope everyone here is well and had happy and safe holidays.

    P.S. I still have no luck with the HOSP ground traps – just too many other birds around to get caught.

    I go through these hot streaks with the groind traps. They seem to go for the bread or crackers like saltines, goldfish. I don’t use seeds. I keep it near the house near the trash cans. Hope you’re still getting bluebirds on the suet. Exciting.

    Yes, my blues (and all others) are coming to my suet feeder by the groves. We had about a two inch snow yesterday and all the birds were frantically looking and eating today. Besides the two cage feeders in which I feed the suet I have a BOSS seeder set up in the yard, probably 50 feet from the house. They are eating us out of house and home on these sunflower seeds – have LOTS of cardinals, etc. out there and that is quite a site with all the cardinals against the snow.
