How to keep black birds away from my small bird feeders?

I put black sunflower seeds out for the finches as they seem to like it. But I end up getting invaded by the blackbirds. How do I keep the blackbirds away?

    Use small feeders with tiny perches. Birds don't like sitting on perches that are smaller than they are. You might also throw some seeds, crumbled cookies, bread crumbs, etc... on the ground. Most large birds actually prefer eating on the ground.
