Wiggly but delicious

Wednesday, 26th March 2014

Mealworms provide essential protein and moisture for garden birds to feed themselves and their young. Read here why.
Mealworms. Yes, I know they look like shiny maggots, but they are not so squishy, and handling them is rather like grabbing a fistful of animated rice! More to the point, the birds love them.

I have been putting out mealworms for years now. I usually put them in a little doggy bowl. They can’t climb the smooth sides; at least not before they have been gobbled up the Robins or Blackbirds. The only “problem” is that a pair of Jays has recently discovered the fast food supply, and if they get there first they tend to wolf the lot, before any of the smaller birds can have a share.
