Peanuts are the perfect high-energy food for attracting and sustaining wild birds year-round, and especially in winter when natural food is scarce! The nutritious fats found in peanuts offer the birds ample sustenance during life-threatening food shortages and cold periods.
With the shells removed, these peanuts are much easier for smaller birds to eat- like chickadees, titmice, and cardinals.
Peanuts are best offered in a specialized mesh feeder!
Birds attracted include:
- Woodpeckers of all kinds!
