Providing Protein for Growing Chicks

June 29, 2015

Even late into June, many bird species are still feeding young, some on their second or third broods.  The mealworm feeders are kept well stocked as appreciative parents collect food for their young. Six species visit the mealworm feeders regularly, including the elusive Wrentit.  This remarkably sedentary bird spends its entire adult life in an area measuring just over an acre.  Having a Wrentit reside within the GNG is really quite extraordinary!
