    Cardinals didn't like it

    By kate32168 on Dec 18, 2021

    I've always fed the cardinals white safflower seed, after the squirrels developed a taste for it, I decided to try the Golden Safflower. The squirrels left it alone! But unfortunately, so did the cardinals. I gave the remaining seed to my niece hoping her chickens would eat it.

    Keeps the squirrels away!

    By Mvhg on Dec 26, 2021

    This seed is great for the birds in the lower Hudson valley area (NY). The squirrels don’t like the seed so they don’t bother the feeder nor birds. The bag doesn’t have a reseal option which would be helpful.

    small birds devour this :)

    By bonbon on Jan 12, 2022 top1000Contributor

    This is such a favorite for finch and other smaller species, especially in this cold. There will be 3 tube feeders filled in the morning and by night they are empty!

    Song birds eat it up

    By Willy on Nov 6, 2021

    Had squirrels getting into my feeders. No squirrel problem now. I have Cardinals, Finches, Chickadees, & Morning Doves who all seem to love this Golden Safflower. Did a gradual switch with my feeders & the birds didn't skip a beat.

    GREAT for Songbirds! Keeps bully birds away!

    By Yzabeaux on Jul 26, 2021

    My Cardinals, Wrens, Jays absolutely LOVE this! Chickadees, nuthatches, juncos, cardinals, purple finches, titmice and pine siskin all appearing at my feeders since starting this food. I can't keep my feeders filled long enough! They just gobble it up! Having this particular brand of "Golden Safflower" makes a HUGE difference in terms of health and benefits each seed is packed with. White Safflower can't compete with this Crème de la Crème for my song birds. My wild birds ARE fussy and they just LOVE the Golden Safflower!! Other bully birds wont' touch the stuff and therefore they have graciously VACATED the area and left it for the songbirds and took their mess with them!

    Birds won't touch it

    By Disappointed on Aug 2, 2021

    I thought I would try this for our four squirrel-proof feeders in our back yard in Orlando, FL, having never tried the "golden" and to keep our cardinals and friends happy. Haven't seen a single bird on the feeder for a week. We will be tossing this and going back to the white safflower seeds. Live and learn.

    Not a fan of the golden

    By 07418PHIL on Jun 18, 2021

    I tried the golden safflower because of the better price. I have over 30 feeders and it was cheaper than the white. The birds almost completely avoid it. I have it in 3 spots and barely eat it. If it was your only food, it might be ok, but the birds like the white much better. They choose other food now. I will switch back to the white. Notice in the picture on the waiting line for the other food.

    Not the same as regular safflower

    By Kymbesha on Jul 24, 2021

    I didn’t realize that it would not attract my chickadees, finished and cardinals. They usually wipe out the feeder when I put safflower in, and I don’t see any birds on that feeder now.

    Birds love it!

    By Swish on Aug 13, 2021

    The thing that I like the best about this seed is that squirrels and grackles will not eat it!! Chickadees, finches and sparrows love it as well as cardinals.

    Wild birds won't eat it at all

    By NancyR on May 21, 2021

    I bought the Lyric Golden Safflower Seed Wild bird food because my normal safflower seed from Chewy, was out of stock. Normally the doves, cardinals, finches, etc will finish 1 to 1 1/2 feeder tube in a day. This Lyric Golden Safflower Seed smells different and looks burned, not yellow. The doves gave it a try yesterday, but left all of it in the tube. After 24 hours, the tube was still full. The doves now are eating peanuts only. I can hardly wait for the regular safflower seed I order to come in so I can actually feed the birds
