goldies and sparrows

we have been putting mealworms in the mealworm feeder for quite a while now (at least 4 months), and up until now only the robin has found his way in (the female will not go in), we think that the sparrows have been watching the robin and decided that they will have some of that. we only get the sparrows from may - early october, does anybody know why that should be.

sitting in the garden yesterday i noticed the sparrows flying off with mealworms in their beaks, wondered if it could be a second brood or a late first one.
