Hearts in the Right Place
With Sunflower hearts there are no husks for the wild birds to discard and so debris will not accumulate beneath your bird table or feeder. However, inevitably some sunflower hearts will end up on the floor. Smaller birds often throw a few hearts on the floor as a diversionary tactic. If they can divert larger birds away from the feeder then they can eat unchallenged.
