Black Sunflower Seed for Wild Birds

Black Sunflower bird seeds are popular with many wild garden birds. They have a high oil content so are good energy providers and are suitable for feeding throughout the year.

 

Using Black Sunflower Seed for Wild Birds

Black Sunflower Seeds are a great all-rounder seed if you're looking to feed or attract wild birds to your garden. As Sunflower Seed tends to attract smaller birds, such as Finches, Tits and Sparrows, we'd recommend using a seed feeder to supply them. Using a seed feeder prevents smaller birds from picking up whole Sunflower Seeds and instead encourages them to peck and chip away at the seeds until they're small, manageable pieces. 

 

You can also use Sunflower Seed on bird tables and on the ground, however, as birds don't eat the black husks it's likely that you'll end up with lots of mess and wastage on the ground in your garden. Not only is it possible for this mess to attract vermin to your garden, it could also cause problems for the birds. Wastage from Sunflower Seed can decay and mould which can cause serious harm to any birds that might eat, so if you do feed this seed on a table or on the ground, make sure to clean up the leftovers. 

 

Species that enjoy this bird food include Blue Tits, Great Tits, House Sparrow, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Nuthatch and Siskin.

Never let me down, easy to order and very quick to respond . Delivery very fast and the bird food is excellent, well the birds think so they can’t get enough of it . It’s great when they are feeding young or themselves they are down and away after stopping for about 5 pellets for themselves then away with some in their beaks for their young.

Bird food was excellent as usual. Very poor delivery service as the driver left the parcel on the doorstep and did not even bother to ring the doorbell, so we did not know it was there in the blazing sun. This delivery company delivered two other separate parcels from a different retailer, approx. a week ago and again did not ring the doorbell. This is just idleness on the part of the driver.
