I love putting out mealworms from time to time when high energy food is essential. Springtime baby birds benefit greatly from this high protein food source. Kaytee Mealworms are my top choice for ready-to-serve bug munchies without the squirm!
These aren’t as scary as they look. Kaytee Mealworms are brown, a few inches long, and oven-dried to a crunchy perfection. Mealworms, derived from the larvae of the darkling beetle, will attract bluebirds, wrens, robins, chickadees, woodpeckers, and cardinals.
The versatile part about mealworms is that you can serve them alone in a specialized mealworm feeder or you can mix them in with your wild bird food. I broadcast a handful on the ground, too, for my springtime ground feeders. I recommend starting out with a small bag of mealworms to grow interest amongst your feathered friends.
