The kernels (often called sunflower hearts) within the Black Sunflower are full of energy due to their high oil content. This seed is carefully 'cleaned' to remove unwanted chaff and offers great value for money. It's a firm favourite with all the finch family and the tits too.
Use them as they are, placed on the ground, bird tables and in seed feeders or try mixing them with other seeds to add variety to your garden bird's diet.

We recommend feed wild birds year round, in Autumn and Winter when natural food is scarce and in Spring and Summer to help parents when they are rearing their young.
Put out feed early in the morning and toward late afternoon
When feeding from the ground, scatter the feed, do not 'pile' it.
Only put out sufficient food for one day. Remove uneaten and stale food promptly.
Make sure clean fresh water, is available at all times for drinking and bathing.
Using different types of feeding methods will encourage a wider variety of birds to visit your garden. Try feeding from the ground, on bird tables and using hanging feeders
Keep your feeding stations, feeders and accessories clean. Regularly wash them using a suitable disinfectant and rinse thoroughly after using clean water.
Move feeders, bird tables etc. frequently to prevent a build-up of unhygienic deposits.
