Peanut Feeders for Birds

Peanut feeders are usually nothing more than a simple tube feeder.  Instead of a solid tube, however, a stiff wire mesh forms the tube. The holes in the mesh just small enough to keep the peanuts from falling out. Shelled peanuts are offered in the peanut feeders.

Jays will also take peanuts in the shell. Its quite a site to see a Steller’s Jay swallow a peanut whole.

Take down hummingbird feeders about 2 weeks after the last observation. Leaving your feeder up too long will not prevent healthy birds from migrating.  More hummingbirds are over-wintering in the U.S.  If you live in Gulf Coast states condor leaving your feeder up all year.
