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:
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.
Peanuts are packaged in breathable mesh bags.
Why Buy Seed in a Breathable Mesh Bag?
Bird seed, despite being dried, still has a moisture content. When this seed is packaged for commercial use there are three proper methods; nitrogen flushed, micro-perforated, or breathable mesh. All three of these prevent the development of microscopic fungus, especially Aspergillus, which can be quite deadly for both cage and wild birds. Breathable mesh is arguably the best method for packaging as it allows more "breathing" and is easier to store safely after opening since the bag can be closed back up.
Note: Peanuts and peanut-products are not always considered safe or appropriate for pet birds. Consult your bird's veterinarian for an appropriate diet for your pet bird.
