"Gimme my mealworms, now!"
|A Carolina Wren hangs on a suet feeder. Usually he's happy with the suet treat, but when it snows, he demands mealworms.|
|Grumpy little thing....|
|...grumpier little thing!|
|A pouting Carolina Wren cannot be ignored, so I did what any well-trained bird lover would do. |
I got on my coat and boots and went out in the snow to refill the feeder!
|Uhhhh ohhhh.....guess who else likes mealworms?|
A Starling was the first bird to return to the deck after I refilled the mealworm feeder.
|The Starling quickly snapped up the mealworms on the ground.|
|...but no worries for the Carolina Wren. He knows I put mealworms in this tiny ceramic bird house. It's too small for a Starling to fit in, but a Carolina Wren can easily poke his head in and nab a mealworm.|
|...yes C.W., next time I'll do a better job keeping the mealworms replenished!|
