The Original Bluebird Nut

    It can take them a little while to get used to the sight of the feeder and become comfortable with it. Make sure your mealworms are super-wiggly. It might help to replace the glass cup with a light-colored dish (plastic butter tub?) to begin with, as the worms show up against a light colored background. Propping the lid open is a temporary thing, not meant to be done permanently. I have gotten bluebirds used to the feeder by doing that for a day or even just a couple of hours. Be persistent, don’t feed outside the new feeder – you CAN teach an old bird new tricks!
