What’s Eating Sunflowers

Anonymous added on May 8, 2014 | Answered

When I plant my sunflowers, many times squirrels dig them up. However, this year ones that did start to grow are getting cut off about 1/2" above the ground. Do squirrels eat them also or could it be birds? The part of the plant missing is gone completely. Nothing is there at all. Thanks.
