Sometimes a feeder works great right out of the box. Sometimes you need to make adjustments. You might remember that I now use Erva’s Starling Proof Mealworm Feeder to offer dried mealworms to Eastern Bluebirds and Carolina Wrens. I like this feeder very much, but I think it is really designed for live mealworms rather than dried. You might not think that would make a difference but it does.
I’ve bought several bird feeders in the past several months. One of the more interesting is the Squirrel Buster Classic. I’d seen this feeder in stores before but always thought that its sister, the Squirrel Buster Plus, was a newer, better, bigger feeder and so never gave this one much thought. But this spring I took another look at it and have been using one in my yard for over a month. I’ve found that I really like it and so do the birds! Here is my review of this feeder.
Here in Maryland, the temperature has been jumping around: winter, spring and summer taking turns all in a week or two. But today I took the plunge and put away my birdbath heaters and put up one of my hummingbird feeders. (I’ll put up the second one once I get some customers on the first.)
