Since the inception of the CTBirds Listserve, I believe I have read, almost every post.
And of them all, this has become one of my all-time favorites. I haven't heard anything as interesting since Farley Mowat's "Never Cry Wolf" (ie, when he ate all those mice, to demonstrate that wolves can subsist, on them).

We had a Painted Bunting overwinter in Blue Hill, ME and a Townsend's Warbler that spent a few weeks in Winterport ME a few years ago. I bought a bag of freeze dried meal worms and neither of these birds would touch the freeze dried ones but these two birds would not touch them. So...., because I hate to waste good protein I ended up eating them. I can assue you that the birds and I agree, there not any where as good as the "Real McCoy". When it comes to eating, the birds know what's good.

> When someone suggested mealworms I was assuming freeze dried mealworms. Though it is extremely unlikely that live mealworms would survive, it is probably better to use freeze dried rather than live ones.
