Safflower seed is a great seed to use to attract the
birds you want – Cardinals, Chickadees, Titmice, and Grosbeaks – and at the same
time discourage the “feeder hogs” like Grackles and Starlings that keep smaller
birds away. And best of all, most squirrels don’t like the bitter taste so they
will stay away as well. If you have unwanted birds & squirrels crowding out
your songbirds, temporarily fill your feeder with Safflower seed for a few days
until you see fewer nuisance visitors — then gradually mix in your favorite
Shafer Seed wild bird food.
Shafer Seed’s Safflower Seed is truly a premium, high
value seed not found in ordinary blends.
