1st brood of 5 ready to fly next week. Very early this year

I have a nesting bluebird. The male has not been around for over a week so I assume he is dead. Anyway I have five eggs, one has hatched today. I am in CNY and it is cold and temps are below normal today. I have been feeding the mother the past two weeks with mealworms. I have little hope for the babies with this cool weather and mom having to go hunt for food even though I am putting out mealworms. Is there anyone who could advise me how I can help mom? Thank you

The issue of house sparrows, an invasive species that kills the bluebirds, is one of the most difficult issues to discuss.

I put up my first two bluebird houses ever in my new backyard. I've been doing what I can to attract bluebirds - playing their calls in the morning, offering mealworms etc;

House sparrows have moved in I ordered some traps for them. But today I saw the sparrows going nuts and saw a male eastern bluebird come out of the box. Will they have scared him for good? I know it can take years to attract a bluebird so I'm a bit sad.

Thoughts?
