What are Sunflower Hearts For Birds?
Sunflower hearts are a fantastic feed to give your wild birds! Being the kernels of the black sunflower seed, they are packed full of goodness. The sunflower hearts are a fantastic source of protein and they provide the birds with the nutrients and oils they need to keep their skin, beaks, and feathers healthy. The hearts also have a high calorie-to-weight ratio, which is why they are such a popular feed, due to the high energy the birds take from the seed. They can be fed from any bird feeder, ground tray, bird table, or a specialized sunflower hearts feeder.
Sunflower heart chips are also a favourite with wild birds. They are a mixture of broken and small sunflower hearts. They contain similar levels of energy and protein and leave less mess on the floor. The small size of these chips is great for fledglings and to stop the finches from chomping down the middle of the seed and letting the edges fall to the floor. But with less mess on the floor, there will not be as many ground feeders.
