Single Seeds and Peanuts

Premium Oil Sunflower

A favorite of almost all seed-eating birds, your feathered friends will happily fill up on our Premium Oil Sunflower bird seed. It's a great source of energy for the birds and 99% free of sticks, stems or other foreign matter so your feeders won't clog with debris. Oil sunflower has a high calorie/ounce ratio due to its high fat and protein content and its relatively thin shell. Among seed ingredients, oil sunflower attracts the greatest variety of small and large seed-eating birds. Studies by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology have shown that most birds prefer oil sunflower seeds to both striped sunflower and white proso millet. Fill your feeders with this top-grade fuel, and watch the birds flock.

Safflower

If you are looking to be more exclusive with your bird feeding, Safflower may be the solution for you. Many of your favorite birds will enjoy safflower, yet blackbirds, grackles and squirrels typically don't. Safflower can be offered in hopper, platform or tube bird feeders, and it is especially appropriate for window or deck feeders where blackbirds or squirrels may be a problem. Offer safflower gradually, mixing it with the seed blends you currently provide, and over time, you'll end up with a dining spot for all kinds of birds, including House Finches, woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees and cardinals!

Sunflower Chips

Get more birds for your bucks by offering sunflower seeds without their shells. No shells means no mess under your feeder. Hulled sunflower seeds have a high oil content and provide birds with an extra kick of energy. It's an ideal seed to offer in feeders near patios, sidewalks or balconies. Offering sunflower chips is also cost efficient because you're not paying for the shells that are not consumed.

Nyjer

Nyjer® (thistle) attracts finches of all kinds. Its high oil content is an excellent energy source for active birds and is best used in our specially designed finch feeders. It is important to keep the food fresh for our picky little eaters. Nyjer has a thin shell and is vulnerable to spoilage while in the tube. Once seed starts to dry out and become stale, finches will turn up their beak for fresher forage. Replace Nyjer seed in feeders every three to four weeks if it is not being actively eaten. Store your Nyjer in an airtight container for a longer shelf life, and buy in quantities that will be used up in a few weeks.

Shelled Peanuts

Add a peanut feeder to attract birds such as titmice, jays, chickadees, woodpeckers and nuthatches. Along with seed and suet, all of these birds will eat peanut pieces, which are high in fat and protein. It is fun to watch the behavior and abluentics of birds that come to peanut feeders.

Peanuts can be offered in mesh feeders, on platform feeders and in a variety of other specialty feeders.

Peanuts in the Shell

Try a peanut wreath feeder to enjoy another dimention in bird feeding. Watch as the bluejays take the entire peanut, shell and all, right out of the feeder and fly off to hide it for eating later. Titmice, chickadees, woodpeckers and nuthatches will hammer open the shell to remove the peanuts.
