Peanuts for garden birds
Whole peanuts for garden birds are a highly nutritious source of protein attracting a wide variety of visitors. Regulars to the Hedge Buddies garden are woodpeckers, great tits, blue tits, coal tits, gold crests, green finches, sparrows, siskins and a family of squirrels to name a few. These peanuts have been selected from a top quality provider as it is important to use the best you can. You should store them in a cool dry place to prevent mould growth because this will make the birds unwell.
Whole peanuts are best put into mesh feeders so that birds can peck at them. Putting them onto a bird table whole will attract larger birds like pigeons and crows, but they will keep your small birds away. Maybe you could have a feeding station just for the larger birds in another area. They need to eat too and due to farmers ploughing so quickly after harvest a lot of their food sources have also disappeared.
