    Adolescent just taking a mealworm from Papa.
    ( I've noticed all adult birds close their eyelids when an adolescent lunges for the food in their beaks...but first time I ever noticed the adult Bluebird's eyelid seems to be blue) View attachment 60598

    Pleasant surprise...a local TV station just selected / aired the 2nd photo in the OP above.

    Here's a shot of the 2 adolescents returning to the mealworms by themselves...looking a little perplexed...a caption might read:

    "How do we get mealworms into our mouths without Mom & Dad here?"
