The Zen Birdfeeder

Kathleen, could you describe your habitat to us? Is it pretty wide open, no chemical usage, and have you seen bluebirds regularly?
If you don't have the right habitat, mealworms will not draw bluebirds to the area. Other birds will partake, though.
If you do have the right habitat and have bluebirds in the area, try putting the feeder closer to where you've seen the birds so they can find the food. Once they do, they will be regular at it.

How long does it take to attract bluebirds to your feeders? I have a platform feeder with mealworms in it, haven't seen one yet!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
