Black oil sunflower seed is the most popular seed among a wide variety of backyard birds. It is a valuable and nutritious part of any bird’s diet. Birds that regularly eat sunflower are cardinals, finches, woodpeckers, sparrows, and mourning doves. Sunflower seeds are best offered in hopper, platform, or tray feeders since the seeds are too large for many tube and mesh feeders. Sunflower seeds can also be sprinkled directly on the ground for ground-feeding birds, and dried sunflower.
