Time to Feed the Dogs

Fledgling eastern bluebirds come to our suet dough dish with their parents every day. When the dish is empty they give us their sad, hungry hang-dog look. It makes us rush to put just a bit more in the dish—though in these insect-rich summer days we cut way back on the dough we dish out.

I swear I heard a whimper and a soft bark from the bird in the dish as I took this photo.

Adorable. The bluebirds in my yard have just realized where the meal worms are. A little more training is needed I guess.

What a sweet picture!

We put out mealworms for the Bluebirds, but the Nuthatches clean them out in no time flat.

Thanks for the fun bluebird picture! I've just started a birdwatching blog (mostly on bluebirds) and would love any feedback you might have!
