Peanuts are also popular to mix in suet for winter feed .

During the cold spell peanuts are a high calorie, fat-rich nut that appeals to many backyard birds , including jays, titmice, nuthatches and chickadees. Because the nuts don't freeze, they are perfect for winter feeding , whether you offer whole or shelled peanuts. 

Common winter birds  include finches, sparrows, titmice, jays, woodpeckers, chickadees and cardinals, though there are always other birds  that may appear at full, enticing feeders. Birders in northern regions may have pine grosbeaks, evening grosbeaks and red crossbills visit their feeders in winter .
