Bluebirds nest in cavities and will use artificial nest boxes. Habitat and nest cavities have been declining for many years. However, thousands of nest boxes across the country have helped to make a remarkable comeback.
How Do You Attract Them?
The larvae of the Tenebrio Molitor beetle are known as mealworms. Mealworms can be eaten by birds such as bluebirds and chickadees. Mealworms can crawl so it is important to keep them in a place they cannot escape.
Mealworms can last for several weeks at 40-50°F. The worms can use a potato or apple slice as a moisture source.

The Hulled Sunflower is a bird’s favorite food, but it doesn’t have to be contaminated with shell debris.
You can get more birds for your dollar by selling sunflower seeds without shells. There won’t be any mess in your feeder if there are no shells. The oil content of hulled sunflower seeds is high and provides birds with extra energy. This seed is ideal for placing in bird feeders on patios, balconies, and sidewalks. Because you don’t have to pay for shells that aren’t consumed, hulled sunflower can be cost-effective.

Many country drivers will see Eastern Bluebirds while driving through the country during the summer in eastern North America. They may be perched on nest boxes or telephone wires, or calling out in a weak, waving voice, or dropping to the ground following an insect. The male Eastern Bluebirds can be captured with your binoculars. They are a stunning royal blue on their backs and heads, and warm red on their breasts. The grayer females have a more elegant appearance thanks to the blue tinges in their wings and tail.
If food is available, this species might visit your backyard. If you have feeders that offer mealworms, this species won’t come to your feeders often. Use the Project FeederWatch Common Feeder Birds bird list to learn more about this bird’s diet and which feeders are best.
If you have enough space and your yard isn’t surrounded by houses or trees, Eastern Bluebirds can be a good choice for nest boxes. To attract breeding pairs, you might consider putting up a nestbox. It is important to put it up before the breeding season. To prevent predators from stealing eggs and young, attach a guard. Learn more about nest boxes at All About Birdhouses. You’ll also find plans to build a nestbox of the right size for Eastern Bluebird.
