Black oil sunflower seeds are a perennial favorite for backyard bird feeding. It has a very nutritious source of high-quality protein and a high percentage of meat per shell. Additionally the seed contains  high concentrations of oil, which is especially critical for your winter birds.  Birds like to spread the oil from their oil glands all around their feathers which helps with buoyancy, body temperature regulation and to keep them dry. The black oil sunflower attracts a wide variety of birds and its shell is easily cracked open, even by birds with small beaks.

Ideal For: seed tube feeders, hopper feeders and tray feeders

Black Oil Sunflower Seed

This is more like it. My previous supply of conservation backyard mix was devoured in no time by the House sparrows. It appeared all the house sparrows from this side of town were here. Now the cardinals, chickadees and occasional sparrow are enjoying a leisurely meal.
