How to Attract More Birds with Peanuts
Peanuts and Suets offer an exceptional high fat food source to the birds. Peanuts are a high-energy food enjoyed by a wide variety of birds including woodpeckers, titmice, nuthatches, chickadees, jays and more. With the shells removed, they're accessible to more species of bird. They’re 100% edible and are high in both protein and fat. Birds will often grab a peanut from a feeder and then carry it off to cache for a later meal. Peanuts in the shell are a high-protein, high-fat food enjoyed by birds such as chickadees, titmice, woodpeckers, nuthatches and jays. They’re also a fun way to feed other backyard visitors including squirrels. Shop Peanut and Specialty Feeders here.
