    Ways of Feedings Dried Mealworms

    Thank you, thankfully I buy bulk, but it’s the small birds I’m thinking off but trouble is, as soon as I put a feeder of mealworms out hanging, the starling empty it with the hour, along with the hovering dishes... Thankfully thought they leave the ground feeder dish alone. But as Delia has...

    Ways of Feedings Dried Mealworms

    Yeah that’s true, didn’t think about the ground feeders... As for the fat balls, strange enough no bird has gone for any of mine since I started? Note the suet block or coconut half eaither. Seams to be sued pellets, mealworms, sunflower hearts & occational seed & peanuts :)

    Ways of Feedings Dried Mealworms

    Thank you Delia for the tips, very much appreciated :) By the sounds of things, it’s another case of giving it a go & seeing what happens. And if the starlings get too abusive towards the hanging feeder of mealworms, then just remove it & stick back with what I’m doing no? The good thing is...
