Review: Cardinals, Goldfinches, Juncos Love These Sunflower Chips

I needed to replenish my supply of sunflower seed for my bird feeders recently and decided to try a new seed for a change: Wild Delight Sunflower Chips. Within minutes of putting this out in my feeders, I’ve seen several birds like Cardinals, Goldfinches, Sparrows, and Dark-Eyed Juncos, itching to eat it. I wanted to write a quick review to endorse this as a great no-mess bird seed you can buy online.

Why should you listen to me? I’ve been into bird feeding for several years and have reviewed dozens of bird seeds and products on this blog to share what’s worth buying and what’s not. For this review, I’ll post pictures of my experience, so you can judge if this is a seed you’d like to buy. At the end of this post, I’ll put links to this bird seed for shopping.

Checking Out Wild Delight Sunflower Chips

I love sunflower hearts and chips for bird feeding because there’s a limited mess left behind compared to regular shelled black oil sunflower seed. It’s more expensive, but I find the added cost to be minimal for the convenience. Sunflower seed in all forms also appeals to a wide variety of birds at your feeders (I’ll list birds that like this seed further down).

If you read my blog, you know that I’ve yet to meet a bag of sunflower chips or hearts that I haven’t liked. I live in an apartment and I try to keep my mess to a minimum. I also love sunflower seed as it appeals to most of the songbirds in my neighborhood.

Here’s a link to view and purchase this bird seed here.

I got this bag of bird seed and didn’t see any rips or tears in the bag. When I purchased this on Amazon, the price was $15.99 (subject to change). I put it into my hopper and squirrel-proof bird feeder and saw my neighborhood flock of birds already starting to eat it a few minutes later. I’m calling that a win! I like these sunflower chips as they’re easier to eat for birds with smaller beaks like Mourning Doves and American Goldfinches.

Wild Delight Sunflower Chips certainly get the job done and have my endorsement as a great no-mess sunflower seed option online.

As you can see in the photo above, there are no fillers in this bag of bird seed. No red milo or cracked corn in sight! There were a few stray sunflower shells here and there, but nothing to complain about.

Here’s a view of the back of the bag below. I like to post this in all of my bird seed reviews so you can see that it’s a nice source of protein and quality-fat. The ingredients list checks out too, just sunflower kernels. I’ve also never seen a “formula” section on a bag of bird seed. A lot of this reads like marketing mumbo-jumbo, but interesting. Also, this is manufactured in Minnesota. Home state pride!
