The price of sunflower seeds has increased by about 10 to 15 cents per pound

For the past three or four years, he said the area for planting sunflowers had been around 200 to 245 square kilometres, but this year that increased to about 365.

“The supply last year was run right down. There was no stocks left,” he said. “So, then we as buyers were encouraging farmers to grow more sunflowers.” Sunflower seeds for birds are smaller while those used in confectionery are larger with grey stripes, Friesen said. Most migratory birds start returning to Vancouver in April, he said. And it was probably during April and May when a lot of people began realizing the presence of these feathered creatures as they were spending more time at home.Some of the questions the organization has been getting from new birdwatchers include how to get started and connect with other birders, he said.
