I live in Vermont, and around Christmas in the midst of s snowstorm, looked out my kitchen window and saw what I thought was a bluebird. Just in case, I found some bluebird nuggets and put them on a feeder. The next morning, I saw 2 bluebirds. I thought maybe they were just procrastinators who had got caught by the storm, but I went out and bought some mealyworms, put them on the feeder, and by the time I got back in the house, there were 2 bluebirds, then 3, then 5 on the feeder. I have been feeding them all winter, and when I was away, one of my neighbors came and fed them. ...the little guys have quite a fan club ! Has anybody else had a similar experience?

I think that more and more they are staying around some northern areas. Sibley's guide shows their winter territory's northern edge up to Pennsylvania. So with warming that line is likely to move.
