Lyric® Golden Safflower Bird Seed - FAQs
Q: What is safflower?
A: Safflower is a thistle-like plant that is considered one of the first crops cultivated by mankind. Vegetable oil can be extracted from its seeds and its yellow flower petals can be used as a natural fabric dye.
As a human food source, it's used in the production of margarine. Its oil is sometimes used in cooking. Safflower seeds are sometimes used as a health supplement, too.
As a bird seed, safflower seeds are often used as a substitute for sunflower seeds and can attract Northern Cardinals and several other species.
Q: How do I introduce safflower seed to my feeder?
A: Your birds may not instantly realize that safflower seeds are edible. Give them a week or two to discover it.
During that time, squirrels may sift through your feeders as they hunt for the seed they really want. Don't give up! Eventually, those squirrels will realize there's nothing in your feeders for them and find food elsewhere.
Q: What birds enjoy safflower seeds?
A: The primary bird you can expect to attract is the Northern Cardinal. Beyond cardinals, individual birds can also develop a taste for safflower. Among those occasional bird safflower eaters are grosbeaks, doves, chickadees and North American sparrows.
Generally, squirrels don't like safflower seeds.
