Sunflowers Attract Finches, Cardinals, Sparrows and Squirrels.

  Planting sunflowers is a great spring project... They are easy to grow, and also, they attract many different bird and mammal species.

So far this year I have seen squirrels, house sparrows, northern cardinals, and american goldfinches eating the seeds out of the sunflower head.

 Also, carolina and black-capped chickadees, white and red-breasted nuthatches, various woodpecker species, and blue jays are also just a few of the many species that will come to eat out of sunflowers.
