The sunflower hearts feeder shown above is ideal for feeding nutritious, easy to digest, high energy, high protein sunflower hearts to the wild birds that visit your garden. The mesh of the stainless steel feeder is diamond shaped for extra strength with no sharp edges, is easy to maintain and the tray at the bottom of the feeder will catch any uneaten bits.
Sunflower hearts are eaten by nearly all of our wild bird species, including non seed eaters such as Robins, Blackbirds and Thrushes, but it can take a few weeks for birds to feel confident enough to start using a new feeder, so we recommend you add small handfuls of sunflower hearts to the tray at the bottom of the feeder to encourage the wild birds, leave your other feeders in place, fill them as normal with your favourite wild birds foods, until they become accustomed to the new addition, then you can decide weather to feed sunflower hearts exclusively from the specialist feeder.
You can also limit the amount of sunflower hearts stored in the feeder, until you are sure that enough wild birds are regularly using the feeder to avoid any wastage! The feeder can also be used to dispense peanuts and larger seeds such as black oil sunflower seeds, sunflower hearts or peanuts.
Please note when positioning the sunflower heart feeder in your garden, place it away from nesting boxes, so that birds raising young fledglings are not disturbed and out of reach of cats!
