Did you know that our Black Oil Sunflower is LOCALLY-GROWN? It is...and right now the fields are in full bloom! For this reason, we wanted to share a little info about the beautiful Oil Sunflower Seed along with sharing photos of the local sunflower fields!
What is Black Oil Sunflower Seed? Well, it happens to be the most-preferred seed of the many that you might offer in backyard feeders! It will attract a wider variety of beautiful feeder birds! If comparing it to Striped Sunflower, for example, one would find that it is meatier with it containing a higher oil content. This, in turn, provides more nutrition & calories with every bite the birds take...so very necessary during nesting season, cold weather, etc.! Black Oil Sunflower also has a thinner shell making it much easier for a larger variety of birds (especially smaller birds) to "crack".
