Safflower is an annual flower seed favoured by medium and large songbirds.
While it looks like a white sunflower seed, safflower is actually a completely different plant. The white seeds are favorites of doves, titmice and cardinals, though other songbirds will also feed on safflower seeds if sunflower seeds are not available. Safflower is generally more expensive than other seeds and may be mixed with sunflower chips or millet in premium mixes to be more affordable and appealing to more bird species.
Grackles and starlings shy away from safflower.
Available in 5lb, 10lb and 20lb bags.
