Similar to black oil seeds, striped sunflower seed is a good high-fat, high-oil seed that many birds will sample. The hulls on striped sunflowers are thicker and harder than black oil sunflower seed, however, making it more difficult for smaller birds or birds with weaker bills to feed.
All the birds that will eat other types of sunflower seed will munch on striped sunflower seed, but it is most popular with larger species such as cardinals, jays, and grackles. If both types of sunflower seed are available in the same mix, the striped seed may be eaten last as birds naturally seek out easier, more convenient foods first.
Striped sunflower seed can be offered the same way as black oil sunflower seed, in hopper feeders, wide-mouthed tubes, broad mesh feeders, or in open trays, dishes and platform feeders.
Packaged in breathable mesh bags
Why Buy Seed in a Breathable Mesh Bag?
Bird seed, despite being dried, still has a moisture content. When this seed is packaged for commercial use there are three proper methods; nitrogen flushed, micro-perforated, or breathable mesh. All three of these prevent the development of microscopic fungus, especially Aspergillus, which can be quite deadly for both cage and wild birds. Breathable mesh is arguably the best method for packaging as it allows more "breathing" and is easier to store safely after opening since the bag can be closed back up.
