Bluebirds eating dried mealworms
Bluebirds in CT by Pat Bachand


Bluebirds enjoying a winter treat in this photo by Pat Bachand. She found her birds didn’t seem to care much for dried mealworms, so she soaked them in hot water for 15 minutes, and they are chowing them down now!

You cannot begin to preserve any species of animal unless you preserve the habitat in which it dwells. Disturb or destroy that habitat and you will exterminate the species as surely as if you had shot it. So conservation means that you have to preserve forest and grassland, river and lake, even the sea itself. This is vital not only for the preservation of animal life generally, but for the future existence of man himself—a point that seems to escape many people.
