Feeding Nuts

An all time favorite food choice of wild birds is nuts. Americans have caught on to the idea of feeding peanuts to wild birds and we for one think it's a wonderful idea. Peanuts attract some of our favorite species to our backyards and their presence is a daily joy. The antics of these birds as they enthusiastically wrestle a nut out of the feeder is worth the small extra effort it may take to supply this healthy food choice. In Europe, peanuts have been a basic of bird feeding for years! The peanuts we use for bird feeding are rejects from the cocktail peanut trade. Peanut growers and producers have come to realize that the wild bird food industry was the perfect place to market the bits and pieces of peanuts that were broken in the process of being made into snack foods for humans. Bird watchers could offer these rejects in their feeders and benefit both the birder and wild birds. Now, nuts unsuitable for the food industry are typically sold as bird food and are also found in many specialty seed blends. Most often they are shelled and usually roasted but not salted. Do not use salted peanuts in your feeders!
