Black oil sunflower, peanuts, raisins, cherries, safflower, and gelatin. YUM!

Cardinals like a strong and sturdy place to perch, so this cardinal seed cylinder needs to be used with our seed cylinder holder (sold separately). Cardinals aren’t necessarily picky on the type of seeds they eat, but they do have a few favorites like black oil sunflower seeds, safflower, nuts and fruit. Since cardinals don’t migrate, this is a good food blend for them to have all year round.

-Black oil sunflower seeds provide a very high oil/fat content and it’s meatier than regular sunflower seeds. This type of black sunflower seeds is very important in the winter when food is scarce and their energy levels needs to be high.

- Peanuts are the #1 choice for most wild birds. Not only are they super yummy, but they provide very important protein, fat, vitamins A, E, calcium, as well as fiber. Peanuts are especially critical in spring, fall and winter, but it’s an excellent food source year-round.

-Male Cardinals get their red coloration from berries! The red pigment in their feathers come from carotenoids which is found in raisins, dogwood fruit, blueberries, raspberries, cherries and more. If these pigment-rich treats are in short supply, their red feathers may fade to a more brownish colour.

To attract Cardinals, provide our special seed cylinder blend beside lots of bushes, trees and shrubs for them to hide in.

Why Seed Cylinders?

Seed cylinders are the best bird feeders for people who want to enjoy looking at their birds longer.

With traditional bird feeders, the birds will often swoop in, grab a seed and then fly away before you can really enjoy looking at them. Seed cylinders are tightly compressed keeping the birds at the feeder longer, because they have to work hard to remove the seed.
