Black oil sunflower seeds are the single most popular wild bird food in the United States, hands down. Inexpensive and energy rich, sunflower seeds can and will attract an incredible variety of wild bird species to your backyard feeders. These seeds are smaller, and more lightly shelled than "striped" sunflower seeds making them easily edible for even the smallest songbirds like chickadees and goldfinches, as well as larger birds like jays and doves.
Species attracted by black oil sunflower seeds include:
- Morning doves
- Finches (house finches, purple finches, goldfinches etc)
- Sparrows (song sparrows, chipping sparrows, fox sparrows etc)
These seeds are prefect for tube feeders, tray feeders, metal mesh feeders and bags, hoppers, and make an excellent ingredient in homemade seed mixes and suet.
Comes in a easy-open moisture-resistant bag.
