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.

 

Birding Quick Hits

Purple Martins begin to arrive back in the United States as early as January.  Track the arrival of martin scouts on the Purple Martin Conservation Association web site to track arrival time for your part of New York.   As soon as the scouts start to show up in your state you should open your martin house.
