PEANUT GRANULES FOR BIRDS

Peanut Granules are brilliant bird food  they are power packed with proteins and oil which makes them a nourising nibble for our garden birds.

  Peanut granules  give birds  energy for the day and night ahead.  This is important at any time of the year,  but more so when it is winter  because in winter birds need high protein to survive the dark, cold nights.  So peanut granules are a good all round bird food

Feeding Peanuts to birds

Peanuts and birds go together.  A lot of birds eat peanuts. 

I put out peanuts every single day along with other bird food.

Peanuts are rich in oil and protein and so are a good energy rich bird food to give to birds.

Peanuts can be fed to birds in two ways –

  • Whole peanuts
  • Crushed peanuts

In winter I put out both types for my garden birds. 

IT IS POSSIBLE THAT YOUNG BIRDS CAN CHOKE ON WHOLE PEANUTS SO NEVR FEED WHOLE PEANUTS IN THE BREEDING SEASON.  IN THE UNITED KINGDOM THIS IS BETWEEN APRIL AND SEPTEMBER.

I keep a hanging feeder full of peanuts and this attracts a flurry of birds

I also put peanuts inside the meshed feeder and it’s great to see blue tits, great tits and a lot more birds flit in an out of the feeder.  It gives me a great view (but sadly not many photos)

Birds I attracts to my garden through feeding peanuts

  • Blue Tits
  • Coal tits
  • Dunnocks
  • Great Tits
  • Greenfinch
  • Song Thrush
  • Chaffinch
  • and the pesky starling

I’ve also had a woodpecker clinging to my peanut feeder

  • Siskins also like peanuts but I have never seen on in my garden

If you are just starting to feed birds or if you’ve been feeding birds for years peanuts are a good source of energy for birds.
