I was excited to see 5 eggs in the bluebirds 2nd nest! I know there’s always that chance one of the eggs may be infertile. I’m still hoping they all hatch! The babies from the first brood have been hanging around as I’m occasionally feeding them mealworms.
I occassionally put out mealworms after lightly dusting them with calcium carbonate and the baby bluebirds love eating them as well as the adults. I would try it with yours and see if that helps lure them out of their hiding places. It’s delightful when you see the parents and the babies taking turns gobbling the mealworms down!
Hi Dana, thanks for suggesting feeding mealworms. I do feed live mealworms, but not close to the house. I have to look through binoculars to see them. Sounds like you may have them coming up close to your house. I would love to have them coming to the deck for a Birds eye view. I have them spoiled, LOL…..I have to take the worms to them.
