I've been feeding wild birds in the backyard for several years now, but I had never tried feeding them mealworms until now. So far I have seen Western Tanagers, American Robins, and Black-capped Chickadees dining on mealworms. The finches, sparrows, and grosbeaks don't seem to pay them any attention.
|Western Tanagers are much more dainty eaters than American Robins. They delicately pick up one mealworm at a time and politely swallow it.|
