Love the convenience

It is not always easy to find Safflower seed in the local stores. Yet it is one of the only seeds that squirrels don't like. My cat loves to watch the birds feed outside the window and this product only attracts the birds.

birds don't like

For some reason my cardinals who usually love safflower seed are not eating this by Wagner. It's been 3 weeks and no seed has been eaten!! I had a friend tell me the same thing happened to her. Crazy. But I'm glad the birds have sense to know something is wrong with it!!

Great for Cardinals

Love Cardinals and they love Safflower seeds and Black oil Sunflower seeds. I love to feed the bird I have a Courtyard garden and feed lots of birds.

the only seed to put out

IF you are tired of squirrels stealing it all, rats raiding your feeder, Safflower seed is for you. Rodents don't like it, birds love it and it is nutritious for them. If it's the only thing in your feeder, all you will see is birds. The rodents are more than happy to go visit the neighbor with sunflower seeds and millet in their yards to tear their feeders apart.

Joy of the neighborhood

My wild birds, wild geese, pet geese, pet ducks, squirrels, raccoons love these seeds. I spread a mixture of seeds in boot trays, large flower pot trays or in small piles on the ground ; also feeders and platform feeders. We enjoy watching God’s wonderful gifts.

So upsetting, bought this so unwanted big birds would stay away, the only birds at my feeders are the blackbirds, jays, catbirds, etc. No small , no cardinals, red-wing black bird, no finches. So upset.

Still in the try out stage

This is my first time using Wagner's brand. There seems to be trash in the bags I got. Sticks , lumps of something that was not seeds. Hoping this was a one time time thing, but I bought two bags and it was in both.

No squirrels

I previously was using the wild bird deluxe bag (light blue). The squirrels loved it. Switching to this seed resulted in the same number of birds and no squirrels.
