        A:  That is true, it also is a deterrent to squirrels.. apparently they don't like the scent of this seed.

        by|Mar 15, 2022

        A:  I have seen sparrows, black birds and an occasional squirrel on my feeder eating the seed. The squirrel climbed the pole and reached over to grab the feeder and eat the seed.

        by|Feb 7, 2022

          A:  I am not sure about sparrows but the squirrels don’t like it and all the other birds do.  They just flock to it.  

          by|Feb 5, 2022

            A:  Hello, sparrows are known to eat many varieties of seed including Safflower. Thank you.

            by|Feb 4, 2022

              A:  My sparrows, finches, titmouses, and cardinals said yummy! Squirrels say yukky, they would rather move Jim's tulip bulbs around.

              by|Apr 20, 2022

              A:  The seeds are not enjoyed by all birds but I bought it mainly because of the squirrels love it too. We have enough trees with acorns that satisfy the pesky squirrels. Dove also love it.

              by|Apr 19, 2022

              A:  Southern California, tons of sparrows and mourning doves; squirrels will eat this even though they supposedly don't like it.

              by|Jun 21, 2022

                A:  Yes, our sparrows will not eat this type of seed. Our finches, cardinals and juncos do eat it.

                by|Feb 4, 2022

                  A:  It is true. Birds that eat safflower seeds do not include sparrows. I buy them for cardinals.

                  by|Jul 24, 2023

                    A:  Nope, I have LOTS of sparrows at the feeder. It's supposedly not liked by squirrels, but I see the occasional squirrel foraging on the ground too.

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  I don’t think so, but it looks like it may kill the grass

                      by|Feb 18, 2021

                        A:  Yes it will. Put the feeder in a flower bed not grass. The sprouts are easy to remove with a hoe or put down some Preem.

                        by|May 9, 2023

                          A:  It doesnt seem to. Been feeding safflower for years and it has not stayed on the ground long. Ground feeding birds .

                          by|Dec 15, 2020

                          A:  Hi BirdBrain, As they are not treated, yet they will sprout a bit if they fall onto the ground. Thank you.

                          by|Dec 14, 2020

                            A:  Not that I have noticed. Between the birds emptying the feeders because it's like crack for birds,and the doves on the ground cleaning up anything that falls, I doubt it will ever have a chance to go to seed.

                            by|Feb 18, 2021

                            A:  I assume so. Every other brand of safflower seed I've bought over the years does.

                            by|Feb 18, 2021

                            A:  Yep. Mine does. In the warm months, after rain, I find sprouts. Just pull them out though.....

                            by|Dec 13, 2020

                            A:  It has not sprouted in my yard.

                            by|Dec 13, 2020

                            A:  I'm not completely sure. It may depend on where you live, but I have not seen safflower sprouting around my feeders here in Tennessee. Sunflowers? Heck yes! But no safflowers that I can recall. One reason might be that the seeds that fall on my ground are consumed by happy pigeons, crows, squirrels and chipmunks. Hope this helps. BTW, I buy the sunflower seed and safflower seed, and mix them, instead buying the general bird seed with millet which as far as I can see, the local birds do not care for.

                            by|Dec 13, 2020

                            A:  I feed the birds on the ground and I have never had the seeds to sprout.

                            Premium bird seed at a reasonable price....finally! It's been killing me to see my wife spend so much on seed that brings the birds to our yard. This is the reasonable compromise I've been looking for. Birds love it. Am seeing some birds we've never had before which is great. So now happy birds, wife happy and I get to save a few bucks in the process. WInning!

                            My birds don't like the safflower bird seed. They just ignored it even though they ate all of the other types of bird seed. I have a pesky squirrel who comes daily to check to see if there is any left over bird seed on the ground to eat. I watched out my bedroom window and he sniffed this seed and went right past it. So I'm uncertain what birds would eat the safflower seed. Can't recommend it.

                            We are on the flightpath of a lot of different species of birds according to Michigan State University, so we enjoy feeding a lot of different birds. The Pennington Premium Safflower bird seed was put in one of our tower feeders and has been attracting a number of different types of birds. The beauty of the safflower seed is that it is practically waste free. We use a lot less of it compared to other seeds and seed mixes. Since the squirrels don't like it, they stay away from it and because it doesn't have the hulls that the sunflower seeds have, it is a lot less messy. We also have sunflower seeds in the wooden covered feeder, which leaves a big mess on the ground from the hulls. Not a problem with the safflower seeds. They work great. I pour the package into a dog food container and use a scoop to load the seeds from there into the tower feeder. I made the scoop from cutting the top off of a half-gallon plastic milk carton. Works great and you can't beat the cost - as in free!

                            These are very high qualify safflower seeds: whole, very few chips, and virtually no dust. They'd be a great addition to any bird feeder, though we use them for a slightly different purpose: as an eco-friendly cat litter replacement (for use in the Smart Cat Box). For that they work really well, and the quality of these whole seeds definitely exceeds that of cheaper brands. We're certainly fans!

                            Safflower seeds, now you're talking about turtle doves boy do they take over the feeders. I have 6 feeders you want to have small birds to get any feed you have to use the tall tube feeder. That is because doves will toss the millet on the ground. So a feeder they can't get on is needed, And use each feeder for a different kind of seed or feed. But this bag of safflower seeds will last for 2 or 3 hours less if all 100 doves show up. I have had up to 200 birds at the feeders. Oh DO NOT place a feeder with in 20 feet of any big bushes. You will have 100s of birds making flights in and out of the bushes which will kill the bushes from to much bird droppings and their wings will beat the leafs off the branches and keep them off forming a tunnel that destroys the bushes. As long as there is no bush that the birds can use the same flight path all the time then your bushes will be fine. Birds are creatures of habit they use the same flight path all the time if its close to food.

                            only purchased because the seeds will not germinate. Way too pricey!

                            I am happy to be able to purchase this seed at my local Home Depot. All my favorite feeder birds like this seed, while many nuisance birds do not. The bags are a nice size, and easy to handle.

                            Many different kinds of birds are enjoying this. The bully birds are not interested in this seed, so they are not bothering the others.
