How It Works


How It Works:

We make getting bird seed easy!

For most of our blends, we have two simple options, 3.5 gallon buckets and 5 gallon buckets. Simply pick the quantity of seed you would like, and we will deliver it to you in a high density 3.5 or 5 gallon bucket with a lid. Then you can either keep the bucket, or return it to us the next time we deliver you seed. When we deliver seed, and collect a Bird Seed Source bucket and lid, we will leave you a coupon for $2.50 off your next purchase. Delivery is free in select areas of Baltimore, Harford, and Howard Counties. Nyjer (thistle) seed is delivered in a rodent resistant mint scented bag.

See our shipping policy page for our current delivery area. We plan on extending our delivery area in the near future. If you would like us to consider your area please email Currently, we deliver on Mondays and Thursdays. 

It’s that easy!

Why do we sell most seeds by volume?

We sell by volume because volume is the dimension that is most important for filling your bird feeders. Your feeders will take different weights of different seeds. However, it will take the same volume of any seed. Therefore comparing weight does not provide you with meaningful information on how many times you will be able to fill your feeders with seed. By comparing prices by volume it also means that better seeds are relatively less expensive.
