I’m extremely excited 3 out of 4 eggs have hatched today! The only problem I’m having is I haven’t seen Boone (male bluebird) in a few days. I wanna help her out but can’t get any meal works for a few days is there anyway I can help her now?
Congrats. You can go to a pet store and get a few. Although it is much cheaper to buy in bulk. Is she trained to get mealworms? That will take a little while if she isn’t. Other than that there isn’t much you can do. I think she’ll be fine right now. She may need more help later as the babies get older.

I hang a little dish with mealworms in it on the pole below house & above baffle. I only do this when I can keep watch, though, so they don’t attract predators. I always remove the dish when sun goes down. Use it most when we’re having lots of rain. That could be helpful to a single mom, so she doesn’t have to leave the nest site as much. Wild Birds Unlimited has a dish on a hanger that fits on the pole. Again, would only recommend for certain situations.
