You just need to stuff your bird feeder with what they like to eat and they will come in numbers. Gardeners tend to attract these birds to keep in their garden and help them get rid of insect pests as they are voracious insect consumers.

You can place the bird feeder in your backyard to warm it up and attract them.

The best type of feeders for this species of bird would be hopper feeders, filled with grubs called mealworms. Bluebirds will also eat raisins soaked in water or berries during the winter. They will also feed on peanuts, sunflower kernels, and suet.
One example of a blue bird feeder is the Sky Café Bluebird Feeder. This mealworm feeder has a dish at the bottom of it where the birds can feed from and hold the birds as they feed comfortably.
