The Early Stages of a Bird’s Life

There are numerous ways to help your adult and baby birds throughout nesting season.

 

Bluebird Eggs

Egg Stage

  • Offer calcium-added foods, such as WBU Plus Blends and WBU Calcium Care™ and PB&J No-melt Suet, to help promote stronger eggs and bones for mother birds and their babies.
  • Use thick-walled nesting boxes (wood: at least ¾" thick; recycled plastic: at least ½" thick) to help protect birds and their eggs from extreme outside temperatures.
Bluebirds Nesting

Nestling Stage

  • Continue to offer calcium-added foods to help supplement or replace the calcium females lose during egg production.
  • Use a predator guard over the nesting box hole to help keep critters from disturbing your nesting birds. 
  • If you pole-mount your nesting box, be sure to place a raccoon baffle just below the box to keep squirrels, raccoons, cats and other animals away.
Bluebird Fledgling

Fledgling Stage

  • Protein is essential for body and feather growth, so offer high-protein foods, such as mealworms, peanuts, Jim's Birdacious® Bark Butter® and Nutty for Nuts™ cylinders.
  • Create brush piles that provide shelter for fledgling birds.
  • Provide a reliable source of water so fledglings can stay hydrated and keep their young feathers in top-flight condition.
