Shelled sunflowers have no hulls so won't create waste around the feeder. High quality seeds provide plenty of protein and vitamins.
Shelled sunflowers spoil quickly and harbor bacteria, but this should not be an issue since birds really love this stuff, so you’re going to be re-filling the feeders constantly. Squirrels will make a bid for it, too.
There are a whopping 150,000 seeds per pound, with no dust, filler or any wastage – plus, the seeds are non-germinating.
The seeds are small, so the feed needs to be used in a fine tube feeder.
This premium blend contains peanuts, cranberries, papaya, raisins, sunflower and more, all enriched with vitamins and minerals. Very little waste. Resealable bag.
Raisins are toxic to cats and dogs, so make sure they can’t scrounge from any that fall from the feeder.
Contains 50% sunflowers, along with 7 different seeds, 3 varieties of nuts, and cracked corn with no fillers. Comes in a resealable bag.
A few issues with spoiled bags containing mold, fungus, or other contaminants.

Watching wild birds at your feeder can be a gratifying pastime, and even city dwellers can hang up a window feeder and enjoy some up close and personal wildlife. To attract the most diverse species, consider getting a variety of different feeders — like nectar feeders for hummingbirds, while goldfinches will gravitate to mesh tubes, woodpeckers like suet feeders, and bluebirds prefer mealworm dishes. Bear in mind that the cheapest seed has a lot of fillers, like corn and wheat, which tends to get tossed overboard. At best, it will make a mess and prompt some weed growth under the feeder, and at worst, it will attract rodents. While birdseed has a long shelf life, it should always be kept in a container where it will not spoil. Keep bird feeders clean, too, and always place them where predators cannot get to them.
