My backyard bluebirds bring their babies to my Hot Meats feeders. The little, spotty, uncertain babies hold tight to the shepherd’s crook above the feeder, while the parent, generally Dad hops down, gathers seed, and feeds the young fledglings. The parents and babies will do this for 2-3 days, then the parents will hop down on the feeder and wait for the babies to learn to jump down and feed themselves. It is my favorite bird watching activity!
