Straight Seeds

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.

Black Oil Sunflower

The seed that practically all the birds are looking for! Black oil sunflower has one of the highest fat and oil contents among seeds for the birds, which makes it favourite for most of them. Look for large, plump seeds that appear shiny or glossy - this means they're fresh and full of meat.

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 hulled sunflower is also cost efficient because you're not paying for the shells that are not consumed.

Sunflower Chips

 

Safflower

If you are looking to be more exclusive with your bird feeding, Safflower may be the solution for you. Many of your favourite birds will enjoy safflower, yet Starlings, Grackles and  Grey 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. You'll end up with a dining spot for all kinds of birds, including House Finches, woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees and Cardinals!

White Millet

This tiny, round seed is ideal for feeding on the ground. It's a favourite of Mourning Doves, sparrows, and juncos (in winter). Sprinkle directly on the ground or put in a ground feeder, such as an open tray or covered fly-thru feeder.

Peanut Mixture

  Peanuts

Both in-shell and without the shell, peanuts are a great addition to your backyard birdfeeding buffet! Peanuts in the shell are a favourite of Blue Jays, and no-shell peanuts are ideal for Woodpeckers, Chickadees, and Nuthatches. No-shell peanuts and in-shell peanuts are sold separately, in multiple sizes of bags.

 

 

Whole corn kernelsCorn

Offer corn as an alternative food for Blue Jays, Geese, Ducks, or even the squirrels! Available as whole kernels or cracked. Also try ears of corn for feeding squirrels and chipmunks.
