I keep a small tray of mealworms outside my office window and happened to see this bluebird swoop in for a snack. The sparrows and wrens have been beating him to it until now!

    Beautiful capture!!! Mealworms huh? Maybe I should try that. I know that we get the Eastern Bluebirds around here. A couple of years ago a pair raised their family in a birdhouse at Lori and Doug's.
