A number of wild song birds consider peanuts a “treat” and will frequently visit peanut feeders. If you place the feeder near a window, you will be able to take great photos of a variety of wild song birds. Be sure to use the peanuts made for wild song birds and not the kind purchased at food stores. The appropriate peanuts can be purchased from many stores selling wild bird song bird supplies.
