Do birds eat sunflower seeds?

If you are talking about domestic pet birds, unsalted sunflower seeds are used sparingly as a treat. Domestic birds do not need the high fat content.
However, wild birds need them in their diet, especially in the cooler months, for the energy. Most prefer the black (oil) sunflower seed, but some species will also eat the striped sunflower seeds. As with the pet birds, only feed them unsalted seeds.
yes, unsalted is better.
Yes but only feed seeds as a treat. Sunflower seeds are high in fat and taste but low in nutrition.
Mine did
Yes, but they should only be given as an occasional treat- as with all types of seed.
YES .. they love them. the squirrels love them too.
unsalted is always better for animals as it is people :)
they are often mixed in bird seed and it's cheaper than buying straight bulk sunflower seeds.
yep. some do. small birds can't (they can't be able to bite it but if you crush them so they will be in little pieces (bits) they can and will eat them)i hope.
Yes but never give it people kind of sunflower seeds only 1's from the bird section.
birds like sunflower seeds !! i have a Senegal parrot %26 sunflower seeds are her favorite.
If you are asking about sunflower seed to feed wild birds then YES.
Most seed eating birds love black-oil sunflower seed. You can attract many species of wild birds with black-oil sunflower seed including: red-bellied woodpeckers, finches, goldfinches, northern cardinals, evening grosbeaks, pine grosbeaks, chickadees, titmice, nuthatches, and grackles.
