Sunflower Seed Buried In Clumps

by Alethea
(Arlington,TN, USA)

Something is planting big wads of black-oil sunflower seeds in my flower pots that are around the corner from my bird feeders, maybe 15 or 20 feet away.

They sprout in a large clump.

I just pulled one out and counted 70 sprouts.

What would be doing this -- squirrels, chipmunks, a bird?

It can happen in any season of the year.

Hi Alethea

This is very odd.

Other than a squirrel, I cannot imagine what would bury such a large amount of seed in one spot.

Maybe someone else has experienced this and will pipe in to help.

Thanks for asking!
