Black sunflower seeds for birds

Black Sunflower Seeds for wild birds are the perfect addition to any garden. With their high nutritional value and full of essential oils, your garden birds will be sure to thank you for these delicious treats.

What is black sunflower seed?

Black sunflower is sometimes known as black oil sunflower seeds. Invariably they are meatier than the striped sunflower seeds you often find in wild bird food.

Why choose them?

They have a much higher oil content than striped sunflower seeds, so are great for keeping birds feathers in tip-top condition. Essential oils are necessary for helping birds build up fat reserves during key seasonal times such as during winter and breeding season.

The essential oils found in our black sunflower help maintain your wild bird’s ligaments, cartilage and plumage which can become weakened by lack of nutrition. Providing a good source of essential fats and oils for your garden birds will help them to thrive and stay healthy all year long.

They also pack a punch when it comes to vitamin and mineral content too! They are an excellent source of vitamins A, D and E, potassium, calcium and iron.

How to feed black sunflower seeds to wild birds

You can feed black sunflower seeds in a variety of different ways. They can be sprinkled on ground feeders, hanging feeders and trays or mixed with other bird seed, to add an extra dash of nutritional value to your wild bird food.

It’s important that any waste husks that gather on the ground below the feeders are cleared away on a regular basis to prevent any build up of bacteria that could harm your birds health. To maintain clean and hygienic feeding stations, ensure you move the position of any hanging feeders on a regular basis.

Which birds eat them?

Black sunflower seeds will mainly attract hard billed birds that are able to open their husks with ease. Birds that are particularly partial to them include:

Always ensure water is available.
