Premium sunflower hearts bird seed

    Best selling bird food!
    Put these plump, whole sunflower hearts in seed feeders, on bird tables or on the ground all year round and treat lots of species to bird food rich in oil and protein and bursting with energy and goodness. They're quick and easy-to-eat, and are particularly appreciated by tits, greenfinches, goldfinches, blackbirds and house sparrows.

    RSPB sunflower hearts are grown as close to home as possible, from European black seeds. Other hearts might come from as far away as China, Argentina or America (they've got many more miles on the clock) and lost their protective coat long ago. The RSPB sunflower heart is greener, plump, nutritious and in tip-top condition.

    Most garden birds will eat many different foods. Here's a quick guide to the birds that particularly enjoy this food, though other species may also enjoy it too:

    Favourite food
    On my third sack this winter. I now have a flock of about 8 goldfinches visiting regularly, taking these and the nyger seeds. The bluetits and greenfinches love them too. What gets dropped on the floor is quickly cleared up by the pigeons, blackbirds and dunnocks.

    Expensive but consistently devoured
    I've been buying these for years and they are now the only seed I leave out for the birds.
    All birds go crazy over then. Tits, finches, robins, pigeons and even foxes like picking up the ones that fall out.

    During the spring when the birds have fledged, I am filling my feeder once a day - such is the demand for these seeds.
    Unfortunately this means fat balls, fat cakes, niger seeds and dried mealworms are completely overlooked in favour of the sunflower hearts.
    Even goldfinches have moved on to preferring sunflowers to niger seeds.

    Everyone loves sunflower seeds.
    All the birds love these (plus woodmice and even a short tailed vole.) I get through them at a rate of knots. I'm happy that they are grown close to home too. I only wish they were packaged in paper rather than plastic sacks.

    RSPB response: Thank you for your review, we are pleased to hear how your birds love our sunflower seeds! As a conservation charity we understand the importance of reducing our impact on the planet and take this very seriously. At the moment we cannot use paper for the pack sizes below 5.5kg therefore we needed to use a laminate pack that keeps the food fresh, dry and when unopened safe from pests. We have looked into other packaging options but they are unsuitable. For instance biodegradable packaging may start to degrade before the end of the product shelf life meaning we would have high wastage. The other widely recyclable packaging used other processes that were harmful to the planet and conservation such as deforestation. We are still researching how we can make our packaging more environmentally friendly.

    More Birds Than You Suggest
    We just have one feeder on a pole (to stop the grey squirrels). As well as the birds you list, the sunflower seeds attract bullfinches daily (and I have seen two juveniles this summer), coal tits, greenfinches, nuthatches robins and even a reed bunting. Less welcome visitors include ring necked parakeets. The squirrels and wood pigeons and dunnocks hoover up below.

    Worth the extra cost
    In the past we used Garden Centre branded Sunflower hearts. We got fed up with the waste. The finches especially the Goldfinches would rake through the hearts from the feeder. 50-60% would finish up on the floor and ignored by most ground feeders. Since changing to the RSPB premium hearts there is very little waste and what gets dropped attracts Collared doves, Dunnocks Chaffinches et al.

    Most of the common garden finches/tits/house sparrows visit including a pair of Bullfinches which have been with us for some time since changing to to the RSPB hearts.

    All in all very happy with the product. Worth the extra cost but very little waste.

    Finches love these more than nyger seeds
    After trying for months with nyger seeds to attract finches to no avail, I gave these sunflower hearts a go. Well there are lots of finches visiting now and these go very quickly. When the seeders run out, they turn to the high energy sprinkles.

    Have been using these seeds for a number of years. Have one feeder low down so the pheasants can get at it but was surprised to find a hedgehog hanging on to the feeder and scooping the seeds out with a paw. It came pretty regularly for a time but sadly not around now.

    Great for feeders
    While not as popular as the premium seed mix, the Sunflower hears get eaten as a respectable rate - especially on the tray table and on the ground. However their ""slow burn"" in feeders is also great, as it means there's always something to eat even when the large birds have polished off all the mixed seed, peanuts and mealworms.

    Like most of RSPB's birdfood, it's pretty expensive especially compared with ""elsewhere"", but it all goes to supporting their good work so I don't mind paying a premium.

    Great stuff, highly recommended!

    Morning rush hour!
    Never had so many birds on my feeder at one time. We have all the usual suspects and since I started using it, there is a greater variety of birds. There is a morning free for all resulting in three tier feeding. The hanging feeders spill down to the next level which is a water dish. The Robin likes this level. Then down onto the ground which the doves and woodpigeons soon mop up. Birds wait impatiently in the nearby tree, then push each other off! The only thing is my seed bill has gone up because everything with wings now dines at my expense!!

    This is probably the best quality feed out there and really is brilliant for my garden birds. I seemingly am getting more now than I ever did using black sunflowers.

    What I really love about this product is it is registered as being accredited Fair to Nature (more info please!) fabulous that I can feed my birds and through buying this I'm helping the wildlife on the farm the seeds are grown!

The pigeons and the robin have learnt to cling to the feeders to get to it. Blackbirds eat what the finches, great tits and blue tits spill. Nuthatches are regular guests as are long tailed tits.

    An absolute must-have.
    If we had to be limited to just one food for our birds this would be it. They all love it; we have goldfinches, green finches, chaffinches, sparrows, robins, great tits, blue tits, coal tits and even a regular pair of siskins (all year round!) - in fact the latter eat nothing else. We cannot recommend this food highly enough - a complete essential!

    Excellent for Goldfinches
    I've started putting sunflower hearts in a feeder this winter and have never had so many Goldfinches in the garden. They are very messy feeders and spill as much on the ground as they eat. This doesn't go to waste as it is soon consumed by ground feeding birds. Expensive but well worth it!

    Fantastic value for money feeds almost all birds, have more goldfinches than I can count & recently also found the m & f goldcrests feeding. A pair of siskins are regulars, but last month we had a linnet, which stayed feeding for about half an hour.

    Finches aplenty!
    I first tried these as they came with the set of feeders and pole I purchased, within a day (we had just moved house and weren't sure what to expect in the garden) we had finches everywhere! They absolutely love these! The goldfinches, greenfinches, siskins, blue tits and blackcap are regulars now - I had to get the 12kg bag as they are getting through a medium feeder a day at the moment! The robins, blackbirds, sparrows, collared doves and dunnock also eat any that they find on the ground - a great purchase to bring a variety of birds in to your garden.

    All birds love it!
    All birds coming to our garden love sunflower hearts and there's no waste at all. House sparrows, blue and great tits and the robin are always around. Starlings, black birds, pigeons and doves get the seeds that fall on the ground. We do get wrens and dunnocks and we imagine that they may eat some of the fallen seeds as well. It's an absolute joy having adult birds bringing their young to feed them. We also see the male robin giving seeds to the female in courtship. Expensive but it's for a good cause and brings my husband and I many delightful moments watching them.

    A Must For Everyone
    Well this seed is a must for any garden or anybody thinking about feeding the garden birds. Like in the other review in my garden every bird loves this seed and a feeder can empty within days. I do place a little on the ground and bird table so all birds can eat it and they seem to enjoy it. I have finches many times a day flying in and eat and it great to watch as finches seem to stay on the feeders the longest and have a good old eat which makes watching them even better. Overall- Good price, Great size, Great seed! you really cant go wrong buying this well worth it!

We have several goldfinches visiting now which are new, as well as greenfinches and blue tits.The starlings love them too, and at times there is almost a squabble over who can get to the feeder. We have a hedgehog that comes in nightly, and i think it eats seeds that have dropped from the feeder. All in all a great buy, and i have just ordered some more.

    I've always fed the birds ever since I was a small girl, and with great results but after watching the infamous Springwatch I decided to give these a try. Well all I can say is I wish I used then earlier in my ornithogical life! The birds flocked to my city garden with hours! All finches, more tits than I can count, blackbirds, sparrows, collared doves, wood pigeons, starlings, and I even saw hedgehogs eating them, when I had specifically put out dried mealworms for them. Dont think I will buy mixed seed anymore, will make up my own and include all the birdies favourites....works out cheaper too as I seem to be making batches up every 3 days...but its all worth it.

    Finally decided
    this is the product for us. The blackbirds go through the other mixes and pick out just the sunflowers. The unshelled sunflowers live me with a completely dense mulch through which not even the hardiest weed can struggle (OK but not a flower border) and all the birds like it to the point of completely ignoring other foods like nyjer and peanuts. It is great fun watching the various 'ground feeding' birds take this out of the hanging seed feeder though. The chaffinches and robins act as if it's normal. The starlings turn into contortionists, and now the blackbirds have started to, with a fair imitation of a rather outsized humming bird!

The woodpecker sometimes prefers the sunflower hearts to peanuts. Magpies and Jackdaws also try, by clinging to the pole or knocking the feeder so seeds spill out. Wood pigeon, Pheasants and squirrels patrol beneath the feeder for the fallout.

    Best Quality Sunflower Hearts
    I've always used sunflower hearts in my feeder and prior to buying these, I used to buy Bakery Grade hearts, but then decided to try RSPB hearts after reading on this website that they are alot more plump and fresh then hearts which come from China and other places around the world. I was very pleased to see that it's true. These hearts are more plump and fresh then any other's I've used before and the birds can tell the difference! My feeder empties alot faster now then it ever did before. In addition to using these seeds along with peanuts, my garden has been visited by coal, blue and great tits, goldfinch, greenfinch, robins, housesparrows, blackbirds, wood pigons, collard doves, great spotted woodpeckers, ring necked parakeets, wrens, starlings and chaffinch - not bad for noisy north Hayes! (London). I wont be buying any other brand of hearts again! Excellent product and highly recommended to other people who are not sure which seed to buy for their feeders.

    Better than the No Mess Mix
    I have always bought the no mess mix, but noticed an increasing trend for the birds to pick out the sunflower hearts and leave the rest. I therefore swapped to this option and, like other reviewers, can't keep the feeders stocked to meet demand. The goldfinches are feeding all day, joined by tits, chaffinches, greenfinches, thrushes, blackbirds, sparrows, starlings, etc. A brilliant no waste product.

    A charm of Goldfinches
    I have been buying these sunflower seeds for the last two years and have watched my garden become a magnet for a 'charm' of Goldfinches, Bullfinches, Chaffinches, Greenfinches, Robins, Dunnets, Sparrows, Blackbirds, Pigeons, Starlings and one or two others which I have failed to identify. It gives my neighbours and myself a great deal of pleasure to watch as many as 30 to 40 birds in my small garden at any one time, especially in this very cold weather. I have tried cheaper bird food mixes but fussy little devils that they are they won't take to the cheaper mixes. I am going through a 12.5kg bag in less than a month. However, the pleasure is worth it!

    Top Tuck!
    This is the food of choice for our locals. Lots of tits, finches and a pair of very well mannered collared doves have become regular diners at the table. Those that spill onto the ground are quickly hoovered up by the blackbirds and thrushes. A bit more pricey than full black sunflowers, but much less messy on the ground around the table. The bulk bags make for good value

    We have put sunflower hearts in our bird feeders for several years now and these have attracted a very wide range of birds. We have many of the tit family including coal tits, also, bullfinches, greenfinches.goldfinches, chaffinches regularly feeding from the feeders. In fact they empty a feeder in 2 to 3 days which is why I buy the 12.75 kg packs. Occasional feeders have included siskins and blackcaps.

    Superior Quality
    I only bought these as they were on special offer, having always used cheaper ones before from elsewhere. However, you can see that these are really superior quality and they have attracted and retained far more birds than the other ones did. The birds seem to know the difference! I don't get that many smaller birds due to the large amount of starlings putting them off a bit. However, since using these sunflower seeds, I now have goldfinches, greenfinches, blue tits and great tits as regular visitors and have also had a robin and juvenile house sparrow on that feeder. The seeds that drop are readily eaten by the blackbirds, collared doves, stock doves and woodpigeons.
    I just wish they did a 3kg size, as it hurts my back trying to lift the 5.5kg ones.

    Bird Attractor
    Since putting out Sunflower Hearts I have been swamped with Goldfinches, Siskins, Chaffinch Greenfinches and Robins. What they spill is gobbled up blackbirds, Woodpigeon and Collared Dove They just can't get enough !!

    sparrow heaven
    Delighted with this product, which I got as part of an offer,and is a bit more expensive than I would usually pay, but the sparrows and tits love it and I'm amazed how quickly they vanish! The sunflower seeds are truly plump and fresh, and in fact look far tastier than the ones we have at home for us humans to nibble.

    I never expected these to be so popular .....
    ... but I'm having to refill the bird feeders every day !! The Goldfinches fight over the feeders and just sit there stopping other birds from getting their share, while the Blue tits usually come when it's quiet, take one seed and fly back to the tree to eat it. I thought the Nyger seeds were popular, but not as much as these.

    gone in a flash
    very high quality and the birds absolutely love them, finches, tits even Mr robin chows down on these with great relish. They are expensive so we try to limit them to the squirrel proof feeders but definitely worth it. The only problem is keeping up with demand

    Bank Voles & Birds
    Sunflower seeds are also excellent for attracting small mammals. We have a family of bank voles in our dry stone garden wall and they share the sunflower seeds with the smaller garden birds.

    Premium Sunflower Hearts
    I have tried many seed mixes in the past but nothing has been as successful as these premium sunflower hearts. At first it was a couple of goldfinches. They went back and told their mates. The group increased to 12-15 of them that now come several times a day. We have watched the young ones grow up and get their wonderful color. Also coming to eat them are greenfinches, sparrows, great tits, blue tits, robins, wrens and chaffinches (and these are only the ones that eat off the feeder!). Blackbirds and pigeons eat up what's on the ground. Not bad for central London! Well worth every penny!

    Sunflower Hearts
    I switched to premium sunflower hearts from a seed mix of various cheaper sunflower hearts for one of my hanging tube feeders. I have been so surprised to have Goldfinches, Greenfinches and Nuthatches living on this feeder ever since. Great tits love them too. I would say that these are the best 'all round' feed that can go into a tube feeder to attract the largest number of different birds. They are slightly more expensive but less mess and waste makes them very good value IMHO.
