Blackbirds feeding in my garden......................................................................

                                    I had just put out a handful of dried meal worms for the birds...



...and it didn't take this pair of Blackbirds very long to polish them off.

It's a short clip (22 secs) so it won't take up much of your time... many thanks for watching.

I love the video of the black birds eating the meal worms.

I am curious....Do dried meal worms attract other birds? I have never heard of them. Our feeders are all full, but the birds disappeared a week ago and have not returned. I am so concerned. Cannot imagine what happened. Our bluebird babies are very wee but looking healthy. Any suggestions? Like seeing the blackbirds up so close and personal. Beautiful beaks and eyes...that bright yellow really stands out on the beak and around the eyes. genie

My favourite birds, they visit my garden in the spring then disappear.

Okay, call me stupid. Y'know, stupid is as stupid does? That sorta thing. But I always assumed that they're 'fresh' worms...but they're dried?!!! Learn something every day. Great video. Love the yellow ring around the eyes. And I'm glad you included a female in the video. Now, question is...where do we purchase meal worms?
