Kaytee Cardinal Food

The cardinals LOVE it. I filled a feeder and I put some out for them in different spots. Every time I put it out, its gone the next morning. They have been lining up in my trees lately, waiting to get at it. I just looked out and there was a cardinal at the feeder right now.

Quality mixture of Cardinal Favorites!

Contains only black oil sunflower seeds and safflower seeds, so cardinals really flock to this (see what I did there?) While a wide variety of birds love sunflower seeds, fewer birds enjoy safflower seeds. However, the cardinals around here LOVE the stuff. I occasionally buy it as a treat only because good quality safflower seeds(that isn't rotten or dirty) can be expensive. My mourning doves also seem to love the stuff. Other birds will go for the sunflower seeds, so while I do offer other bird food mixes at the same time I offer this one, I do see some sparrows and finches enjoying this mixture. Heads up though, starlings because they have softer beaks have great difficulty trying to eat safflower seeds and supposedly dislike the bitter taste. I don't mind almost any bird at the feeders, including grackles, but when the starlings come, they completely take over to the extent that they won't even allow the other birds to come to drink water. (Except for bluejays and the larger woodpeckers who don't put up with such nonsense!) But this mixture has sunflower seeds, so what happens is that on days they show up, they end up dumping out all the safflower seeds on the ground to get at the sunflower seeds! Luckily, there are other feeders in the neighborhood that apparently have food they like better (none of my mixes have cracked corn, for example), so they don't come around as often as they used too. At least the doves, cardinals, juncos managed to eat the spilled seed--and the squirrels enjoyed the fallen sunflower seeds. The only complaint I have about the seed is the use of artificial cherry flavor. It makes the seed smell a bit odd, and personally I don't know why they would use artificial flavoring in wild bird food, but it hasn't put off my feathered friends. I do recommend this for anyone who would like to attract cardinals and keep them around. I would buy this again on occasion depending on the current sale price as a special added treat.

Cardinals Continues to Come to Feeders

Since this food was on sale, I bought for wild birds. I was using Kaytee Nut & Fruit Blend Wild Bird Food, but I think this food attracts small birds such as sparrows, purple finches, junco, etc more than cardinals. With Nut & Fruits Blend Wild Food is more expensive, but overall the food made colored birds happier. I felt sorry to wild colored birds to feed less attractive seeds for them than Nut & Fruits seeds, I add peanuts, smashed suit cake, and some old fruits I forgot to eat from fridge together. If you are already using high quality seeds, you may want to keep using it to keep colored birds to your feeders.

Birds like it

It's birdseed. Birds and squirrels like it!! The squirrels monopolize it and I have to shoo them away so the birds can eat!!

Sparrows are kicking out the seeds bc they don't like safflower

The previous type of food we put in our bird feeder did not have safflower, and birds and squirrels were enjoying it. This food has safflower, which only cardinals like. the sparrows figured out to bump and shake the bird feeder causing the seeds to fall out, so they can get past the safflower seeds. What a mess, and I bought 2 + got 1 free..

Birds Didn't Eat It

The seed is good if you have the right birds. I was surprised the cardinals didn't like it because they usually go for sunflower seed.
