Attract Birds with Peanuts

PeanutsAdd a peanut feeder to attract birds such as titmice, jays, chickadees, woodpeckers and nuthatches. Along with seed and suet, all of these birds will eat peanut pieces, which are high in fat and protein. It is fun to watch the behavior and antics of birds that come to peanut feeders.

Peanuts can be offered in mesh feeders, on platform feeders and in a variety of other specialty feeders.

As with all bird feeders, it is important to keep your peanut feeder clean, especially during hot and humid weather. When peanuts get wet, they can become moldy. Mold or fungi can cause problems for birds or other animals that eat the food. Add a peanut feeder to your backyard and watch the birds go nuts over this tasty treat.
