Blackbird Food.

Could anyone recommend a food that blackbirds like to eat? I can hear one singing at any given moment of the day but it never comes into my garden to sample the various seed which has fallen from the birds' feeders, visiting only occasionally for a swift half from my birdbath. As I take a great deal of pleasure from their song - the jazzmen of Birdland - I'd like to give a little back to them.

Thanks in advance.

They like mealworms. Also grapes, chopped apples and pears, grated cheese all go down well here. They are ground feeders so won't visit a hanging feeder.
