Best Sunflower Helianthus for 'looks', birds & butterflies??

Cincinnati (Anderson, OH(Zone 6a)

Puhleeezz...a little help?

I would like to have your opinions about your favorite sunflower (Helianthus)??

I have a nice sized sunny space (behind the 'sun' border in the picture) and would like to grow a couple of different yellow sunflowers~~for the birds and butterflies, for cutting, and also the giant kind for fun for the neighbor kids, but I'm having trouble deciding...

I think I need the kind with seeds (for the birds), not seedless. And I don't want little flowers (I have that kind already).

So, what do you recommend from your experience??

Thanks. t.
