While having my morning coffee I witnessed this display or should I say frenzy of birds as they fought over dried meal worms in a bluebird feeder!
This feeder has only one hole to enter and exit. The birds. Sparrows, love these worms but fight over who goes first into the feeder. I snapped many photos of these birds as the fought in and out of this feeder. It was quite comical to see.
My husband refills this feeder almost daily lately besides the other feeders. He can’t keep up with the birds the way they eat!
I showcased some photos here in a gallery and put some of the gallery separately so you can really see the birds in action.
The hibiscus plant below the feeder is a waiting station for the birds. At one point there must have been half a dozen birds waiting on the branches for their chance to eat. Things finally died down after most of the birds had their fill or maybe the worms were depleted. John will be on the spot to refill the feeder again.
Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. I hope you enjoyed seeing these birds in action, so to speak. They are fascinating to watch. Please come back again real soon. You are always welcome.
Blessings & Hugs! Stay Safe, Stay Well and God Bless!

We put dried mealworms out on the ground – they are a favorite for most of the birds.
We also put out peanuts, which keep the squirrels happy – they eat side by side with the birds!
Great! Helping the little critters to survive! They especially need it in the winter. We feed them all year round. 🐧🐿
We do too despite people saying we shouldn’t. They give us too much entertainment and pleasure!
