Peanut Bird Feeders

Bird Feeder Types: Peanut Bird Feeders

Peanut bird feeders

Peanuts are a great source of protein and energy for birds. You can choose what type bird you want to attract based on the size of the mesh on the peanut feeder. Whole peanuts are only handled by large birds such as Blue Jays. Most birds can’t handle the large outer shell of a peanut. A greater variety of birds are attracted to shelled peanuts and peanut pieces.

Peanut Feeders are generally a wire mesh tube feeder with varying sizes of mesh openings. Birdfeeders etc. carries a variety of these peanut feeders offering you options for capacity, shelled or non-shelled contents and squirrel proofing. Squirrels love peanuts and will do almost anything to reach the bounty so consider a weighted squirrel proof peanut feeder only allowing birds lighter than a certain weight to feed and will deny squirrels access to the peanuts. A peanut silo birdfeeder is designed for acrobatic birds such as Woodpeckers, Chickadees, Titmice and Nuthatches who can cling and feed upside down. No matter which peanut feeder you choose, be sure to check the bird feed often for signs of mold or darkening in color. In hot weather peanut feed can become rancid so only put out as much bird feed as the bids will eat in a few days.
