Peanuts are a favorite food for many birds, and they’re a fast, easy option for backyard birders to refill feeders. But are these familiar nuts best for your backyard birds?

Because peanuts are high in fat, they are an excellent source of energy and calories, especially during cold winters, and they're ideal for birds to tuck away and store for another day. No matter what types of peanuts or peanut products you feed your backyard birds, you’re actually offering them a very nutritional treat.

Birds That Eat Peanuts
While the very smallest birds, such as hummingbirds and small finches, will not eat peanuts, many different species will give these nutritious nuts a try. The most common birds that enjoy peanuts include:

Towhees
Grackles
Crows
Jays
Ravens
Woodpeckers
Northern Cardinals
Dark-Eyed Juncos
Pyrrhuloxia
Titmice
Tits
Chickadees
Nuthatches
Wrens
Doves

Which birds will like your peanut offerings will depend on what types of peanuts you have in your feeders and what birds are regularly visiting your feeders.

Note: Peanuts and peanut-products are not always considered safe or appropriate for pet birds. Consult your bird veterinarian for an appropriate diet for your pet bird.
