Review: Morning Song Sunflower Chips are Cardinal and Goldfinch Approved

Hi there! Dan the Bird Seed Man here coming at you with another review. Today, I’m writing a post to detail my experience with Morning Song Sunflower Chips. I recently bought a bag to replenish my sunflower seed stockpile and it’s been fantastic. This is a great no-mess bird seed with no fillers and it’s appealed to Cardinals, Goldfinches, Chickadees, Juncos, and more on my patio so far.

I wanted to put together a review of this seed below as a bird feeding hobbyist who’s tried more bird seed than I can count since I started this hobby years ago. I’ll also post some pictures, 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, along with similar products for shopping.

Checking Out Morning Song Sunflower Chips

A bag of Morning Song Sunflower Hearts & Chips Wild Bird Food.
This bag of bird seed has no fillers and no shells. So, there should be limited residue beneath your bird feeders if you use this seed.

If you read my content, you know that I love sunflower chips for bird feeding. Sunflower appeals to a wide variety of birds at your feeders (I’ll list birds that like this seed further down). At a slightly higher price, sunflower chips also limit the mess of leftover shells in your yard. This is important to me, as I live in an apartment development. So, I almost always keep a feeder or two stocked with sunflower chips.

This is completely observation-based by me, but I also feel many birds prefer sunflower hearts and chips. They require less work from them to eat.

Here’s a link to view and purchase the seed here

When I purchased these sunflower hearts and chips on Amazon, the price was around $18 for the 5.5 lb bag, cheaper or on-par with many other sunflower chips on the website (this is all subject to change). I’m impressed with the price and quality of this seed. It didn’t seem dry at all in the bag. I put this seed into my cedar hopper and squirrel-buster bird feeder and it works great. Bird immediately started going after it!

Here’s a view of the back of the bag below. I like to post this in my reviews so you can see that it’s a nice source of protein and quality-fat. You can also see in the bag the lack of any fillers. The ingredients list checks out too, just chipped sunflower seed.

Overall, this bird seed is about as perfect as you can find when shopping online. It’s quality, a decent price, and birds love it.
