A Bluebird’s Diet
Eastern Bluebirds are primarily insectivores, ingesting spiders, live or dried mealworms, millipedes, caterpillars and other delectable lawn bugs. It is vital to the ongoing health of the bluebird population to provide a pesticide- or chemical-free yard.
During the early spring and late fall, when insects are less plentiful, the bluebirds will dine on sumac seeds and honeysuckle, as well as several types of berries and grapes. They also have been attracted to feeders using nut meats, suet and raisins.
Many people have success attracting bluebirds to specific insectivore feeders. All Seasons Wild Bird Store offers several types of feeders, and in our stores we sell the live and dried mealworms to use in them.
