With winter coming I thought time had come to add mealworms to my backyard birds' diet. Daily feedings (for 2 years) has familiarized me with each bird's food preferences. I haven't seen any of the birds take even one worm. It's somewhat disappointing because it's my first purchase that they are completely uninterested in. The usual birds that come to my feedings are: Nuthatches, Chickadees, Jays, Towhees, Juncos, & other Sparrows. The Robins and other Thrushes are too shy to come close to my house but I might recommend mealworms to someone who feeds them. Maybe they're less picky about their worms/grubs. Also, the worms mysteriously vanish from the feeding area overnight so it seems SOME creature is enjoying them.

This is an excellent food for Robins. I have Robins who build nests under my deck and I hear them sing and can watch the babies and parents most of the springtime of the year. I switch to Mealworms when I learned Robins do not eat bird seed and have been rewarded by being able to watch the parents eat on the deck from my living room chair. Only complaint is that the worms are very expensive and would like to be able to buy in bulk to get discounts.
