If you let your ornamental sunflowers go to seed, they clean those up too.
Every year I plan to cut them down when they start looking ratty, but the
finches move in & it's impossible to worry about with the show they put on.

Absolutely!  I grow sunflowers just for the goldfinches.  Some mornings when 
look out I think the trees are already turning color - they will be filled 
with the
bright yellow finches. I love them, and there seem to be more this year than
ever.  I know some have thistle feeders especially for them, but they seem to
be completely happy with the sunflower hearts in our feeders.
