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?
