The Peanut Pole (It’s a Popular Place!)

The peanut pole is a recent addition to our backyard bird feeding set-up.
It is a rather thick branch that is strapped to the side of the deck rails that has three holes drilled in it (courtesy of hubby) that are perfect for filling with peanuts.

The Nuthatches have officially declared it their personal snack station. All three types have been showing up on a regular basis. Like this Red-breasted Nuthatch…

…and this White-breasted Nuthatch…

…and of course, the Brown-headed Nuthatch.

Now, the peanut pole is not a sit down diner, but more of a grab and go type of place. Whereas we have drive-thru restaurants, think of this as a fly-thru.

The Downy Woodpeckers have also discovered this delightful new place to load up on peanuts.

And not to let space go wasted, the top of the branch has a perfect Bark Butter notch.

Yep…the peanut pole is definitely becoming a popular place!

    The Nuthatch birds are fun to watch! Looks like your new pole is top notch! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘

    I guess you can officially say that you have a “peanut gallery” here Kathy. Peanuts are such a draw for our “wildlife” – I had a cardinal following me around the park today, flitting from tree to tree, waiting to grab a peanut when the squirrels weren’t watching their stash.

    I hope these birds appreciate all you do for them.
