Good, because I am a bit squeamish about live mealworms
I think we are out of synch with our Q and A
Dove, I can easily get dried mealworms; should I leave them in a saucer nearbye? I have heard that robins are ground feeders mainly.
I can't really see myself at 5.00 a.m. dangling a worm from a pair of tweezers over a potato bag I think I'll leave it to the experts; the parents
There is a very imperious Robin who comes quite close to the house and peers through the windows.
Dove, I most certainly will leave well alone; spotted the nest about 5 mins before I posted. What amazes me is how fast the nest was built and filled.
Fruitcake, I can't see where you are in the U.K. Here in the Norfolk Fens I grow some toms outside and some inside, and then hope for a sunny warm summer.
The eggs are smaller than my thumb nail.
Sadly there is no bird sitting on the eggs; don't know enough about this to figure out if nest is abandoned.
