A major ice storm struck most of Oklahoma leaving everything with a thick coating of ice. That means all the natural food sources of songbirds are locked up tight. Our feeders have been a popular place and the bluebird’s daily ration of mealworms is important in weather like this.
The ice wrecked havoc on our trees and shrubs. Most are laying down or broken. I have lots of shrubs with berries for the birds, but they can’t get to them because of the thick covering of ice. Hopefully we will get some thawing after three days of this and the birds will have access to natural food again.
Merry Christmas to all our bluebird friends.
