Peanuts are one of the most popular foods for feeding garden birds. Unfortunately peanuts are also popular with squirrels too! These bird feeders are specially designed to hold peanuts and many will prevent squirrels from getting at them.
Please remember that you should never feed whole peanuts during the breeding season as baby birds can choke on them. By using a special peanut feeder you will ensure that the birds have to peck at the nuts rather than eating them whole. And of course by doing so they will stay around longer in your garden.
The hanging lantern style peanut bird feeder has a built-in handle allowing you to hang it up. It comes with an easy to open lid for convenient filling and cleaning and a tray for preventing any spillages. The ideal bird feeder for attracting tits, finches, or even woodpeckers.
There is apparently a scientific basis to the design of this excellent feeder, to do with the relationship between the amount of food and the area of the feeding surface, but to us it just means there’s room for lots of nuts and lots of birds to eat them! Although just 6″ in diameter, the all-metal Nutosphere holds over a kilo, and comes complete with hanging chain and hook.
Tough, practical and superb value for money, these feeders are manufactured entirely from stainless steel. A domed, overhanging lid, with rubber grommets where the hanger passes through, helps keep the weather off and the nuts in better condition, longer. Complete with 2 rubber-tipped perches and a mesh self-cleaning base.
This peanut feeder from Peckish features a decorative leaf design with a distinct finish. The feeder's small mesh size makes peanuts a safe size for younger birds. It is constructed of hard wearing metal and holds up to 850 g of peanuts. Perfect if you've got a lot of hungry birds in your garden.
