    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.

     

    Packaging: Our 2kg and 6kg options come in a fully recyclable plastic bag. Our 12.55kg option comes in a fully recyclable plastic liner inside a cardboard box. Our cardboard boxes are also made from recycled materials and our gum tape and labels are all recyclable. Please note, the plastic liner is to protect the seed in the box only and is not a carry sack. Do not attempt to pull the plastic liner out of the box.
