I have a wire mesh peanut feeder hanging outside one of the kitchen
windows. It's under the eaves so it stays dry and the squirrels can't
get to it. I get nuthatches, chickadees, flickers, downy woodpeckers,
and hairy woodpeckers eating out of it just a few inches from the
window. The good thing is that they have to work at it for a little
while to get a small piece of peanut to take away so you can get a good
long, closeup look at them.

Here's a picture of a hairy:
