Wild Birds Unlimited Safflower

The Safflower Solution

Sunflower-eating birds love Safflower; squirrels and blackbirds typically don’t.

If you are looking to be more exclusive with your bird feeding, Safflower may be the solution for you. Many of your favorite birds will enjoy safflower, yet blackbirds, grackles and squirrels typically don't. Safflower can be offered in hopper, platform or tube feeders, and it is especially helpful for window or deck feeders where blackbirds or squirrels may be a problem. Offer safflower gradually, mixing it with the seed blends you currently provide, and over time, you'll end up with a dining spot for all kinds of birds, including House Finches, woodpeckers, nuthatches and chickadees.

We also offer Nutrasaff, a safflower seed which wild birds digest easier. It also provides a higher energy source with less waste than other safflower seed on the market. Nutrasaff has 15% more oil content, 25% higher protein, 30% higher fat content (energy), is organic and chemical free, and is non-GMO. In addition, birds love it!  Squirrels do not!
