Keeps the Grackles Away!

We got this seed for the purpose of deterring the large grackle population from our yard. They were stealing the wild birdseed blend from the cardinals and doves, so we had to change that seed to Safflower seed only. Now the grackles don't come anymore, and we get to enjoy watching our regular feathered friends eat the Safflower seed in peace.

Good product, stays fresh

Part of my appreciation for the Wagners products I have bought for my wild birds is their clever velcro closure, so the bags stay closed!! Love that you can get this at chewy along with the dog food order. ;^)

Good quality seed

I started using more safflower seed in an effort to cut down on the Starlings. It is working pretty well, although, I still see a Starling now and then pigging out at the feeder.

Cardinals love Safflower

Cardinals, Mourning Doves and finches love this seed. Seed was delivered fresh and the bag was intact. I usually mix this seed with the grey sunflower seeds for them.

Cardinals love it.

I pick this particular seed for the cold months because I love to see all the cardinals. The tree behind me will have sometimes 20 of them. Red birds in a leafless tree against the winter sky. Beautiful
