Peanuts are a favourite food for many birds, and they're a fast, easy option for backyard birders to refill feeders. But are these familiar nuts best for your backyard birds?
Also called groundnuts, earthnuts, pig nuts, goobers and monkey nuts, peanuts (Arachis hypogaea) really aren't nuts at all. They're actually a legume in the bean family, and they are a rich source of protein, oil and other nutrition for many backyard birds.
Because peanuts are high in fat, they are an excellent source of energy and calories, especially during cold winters, and they're ideal for birds to tuck away and store for another day. No matter what types of peanuts or peanut products you feed your backyard birds, you're actually offering them a very nutritional treat.
