Black Sunflower Seed for Wild Birds by Garden Dreams are a high quality, excellent source of energy for birds . You can supply them all year round, but they become especially vital in winter, as natural food sources dwindle and most of the wild birds’ energy goes towards keeping themselves warm.
The main species attracted by Black Sunflower Seed are House Sparrows, Finches, Great Tit, Blue Tit and Woodpecker.
As many of the birds you’ll see are small species, it’s a lot safer to only provide whole Black Sunflower Seeds in hanging feeders, where they can peck off pieces themselves. This is especially important in the spring and early summer, when young birds will be around, as the young birds, and some adults, don’t realise that they can’t eat the seeds whole, and can choke if supplied with Black Sunflower Seeds on a tray. Please always use a hanging feeder or if using a flat surface, crush the sunflower seeds before putting them out for the birds.
Always renew the seeds on a regular basis.
