Bird seed for wild birds is a mixture of small seeds that are typically eaten by birds. The mix usually contains a variety of seeds, such as sunflower, millet, and safflower seeds. Wild bird seed mixes are often sold in bags or containers at pet stores, department stores, and bird supply stores.
I normally buy another brand but it was out of stock when I ordered. So, I found this brand and decided to try it. I am so glad I did. I have a hard time with the 20 Lb. bags and so I got two 10 Lb. bags for about the same price.
SO much easier for me to lift. As I have cats I have a few 20 Lb. empty containers from cat litter. I emptied the birdseed (with a funnel) into the containers. makes it easy to store the seed. I put several cups of the seed (a week’s worth) into a Ziplock bag (with a zipper) with a measuring cup which I take outside to feed the birds.
Try it if you are elderly or have arthritis. It is much easier than lifting a heavy container each morning. This brand is all I will order in future because of seeing so many more happy birds waiting on the fence for their breakfast each morning.
Not what I consider ‘Deluxe’ but nice clean seed that smelled fresh upon opening the bag. Seed is very small in size which works best for small birds and the mourning doves around here enjoy it. I put it in a platform feeder that hooks onto my garden pole so it’s accessible to any that want to stop by.
Finches, Sparrows and Doves, mostly. My feeders aren’t really busy in summer when natural food sources are available. Winter & Spring is a whole ‘nother story. Living on a fixed income, I have to find the best deals.
This is a reasonably priced, no inedible debris in the bag.
I ordered 3 bags for my mom she loves to feed the birds and will sit and watch them. She is in bad health and doesn’t go out much. I had these shipped to her house and I am very disappointed there is nothing deluxe about this bird seed.
It’s a little bit of sunflower seeds and then mostly that filler crap that the birds don’t like. The little round seed. I will not be ordering any more. I do not recommend this item.
Top rated seed that attracts a wide variety of birds. Perfect to offer a variety of food for the birds. Sunflower chips are a favorite for finches, chickadees, grosbeaks, nuthatches and many more. 100% Natural Seed grown in the USA.
Our bags are packaged into durable 50 pound bags. Easy to handle and store. Wild Birds Favorite Excellent source of protein and energy for birds. Not for Human consumption.
Most no-waste birdseed generate a lot of waste. It’s incompatible with condo living. After receiving 3 complaints from our ever vigilant HOA, I decided that it’s better to just get cracked sunflower seeds and throw it on an outdoor rug.
Super fast shipping and the seed chips were a good size for smaller birds and won’t sprout when tossed on the ground. They seem to be fresh with no musty odor. It will be nice to have plenty on hand as the cold weather sets in.
Keep your birds singing with Morning Song Goldfinch Thistle Seed. A high-oil content seed for your goldfinches. Attracts goldfinches, purple finches, house finches, buntings, siskins and redpolls. These tiny Nyjer (thistle) seeds provide a high-energy, high-oil treat.
For use in a thistle sock or finch tube feeder. Mills family owned and food safety certified since 2014.
So I put this on auto ship (because of the great price) but before I had a chance to try it, the 2nd arrived so I have 2 big unused bags now. I used to feed the goldfinches Black Thistle and I regularly had 20-22 finches between 2 socks on my patio throughout the day.
I refilled them daily! I filled it with this new brownish thistle and the whole Goldfinch crew up and left. They literally flew the coop. I thought they would be back, they stayed during torrential rainstorms in near freezing weather prior to the “food incident.
” So don’t start your birds out on Cadillac seed and expect them to stay if you change! LOL.
I too was very disappointed with this product. I absolutely love CHEWY products!! but this one was a disappointment. The finches won’t touch it. I usually have finches devour my niger feed and have never had a problem.
They go through an 8 lb bag in 2 weeks. But I filled the feeder and it’s barely touched. I’m having to go out and buy a replacement with the old brand. This one did have an odd smell and dusty when the bag was opened.
Wish I could get a credit or replaced with alternate brand.
I felt like the biggest bird lover LOSER when this seed poured out, dust and dirt everywhere. Not to mention the seed looked totally dried out too, the lightest brown color of Nyjer I’ve ever seen. No sheen to it at all, dehydrated at best.
I just know the finches were talking about us between their dry heeves, bless their hearts. I’m going back to Pennington, Windsong or anything but this brand.
A nutrient-packed blend of pecans, black oil sunflower seeds, sunflower hearts and white millet is compressed into a solid, long-lasting cylinder that slips easily into the specially made Copper Seed Cylinder Feeder, sold separately.
Saves time and eliminates the mess and hassle of pouring bagged seed into a feeder. The treats in this blend attract a wide variety of backyard birds. The cylinder may also be hung using the included mesh bag.
Pennington Wild Bird Feed attracts a wide variety of birds year-round. It is enriched with Bird-Kote as well as vitamins and minerals for balanced nutrition. Contains sunflower seeds to attract songbirds.
Pennington Wild Bird Feed is a favorite of cardinals,finches, titmice, doves, nuthatches, downy woodpeckers, and grosbeaks.
Pennington is a fine if messy seed (part of that is the birds, of course). My Minnesota birds prefer the black sunflower seeds versus the millet. Unfortunately I need to spray around my bird feeders several times a year to kill the weeds that grow up through the river rock bed.
Still, after putting out the feeders this morning the sparrows and robins were already licking their chops before I’d even finished filling the tube feeders up. I would have preferred to put out cracked corn (lasts longer and no weeds) but when Wal-Mart offers free delivery on seed (versus corn) with the minimum order on a 50 pound bag my wallet and back both say, “thank you!” Thanks very much, Wal-Mart.
As we’re all stuck at home more than usual this year I’m looking forward to many evenings of “bird TV” from my porch.
In mid summer we use up to 20 lbs. of bird feed a week. We have used this product for several years but it has several negative things about it. First there are several types of seeds in it that our birds don’t like.
The birds throw them out and they end up piled up on the ground under the feeders. Secondly, there is some kind of seed that when it spouts out looks like grass. It even sprouts out in the bird feeders if any moisture happens to get to it from wind blown rain.
Then we have to empty the feeders and dig the ‘grass’ out of them. But it’s most problematic is when it sprouts in my wife’s flower garden and we end up with a carpet of ‘grass’ in her garden which has to be removed by hand!! 🙁 And I do agree with other commentators about the wood pieces in the product.
I don’t know what this is! The birds come, take a peck, let go of it, go to the next and do the same thing and then leave. They don’t like it. They don’t want it. They are not eating it. Pigeons seem to eat the sunflower seeds and the other dark seeds but those lighter colored things-nope! I don’t even think they are seeds of any kind.
There’s tons of pieces of sticks in the bag. Don’t know what that’s about. Maybe sticks were turned into those light colored balls and they aren’t really seeds and that’s why the birds aren’t having it.
I don’t know! But I won’t be purchasing this again. I will move on to another brand. Wish me and birdie friends luck!.
Songbirds will flock to this versatile seed blend. Fill your tube, Hopper, or platform feeder with our songbird mix & enjoy the sweet antics of your backyard Birds. Contains over 40% Sunflower seeds, plus peanuts & Safflower to attract the greatest variety of Birds.
I was hoping to attract back the goldfinches that were here earlier this year before the grackles and starlings took over. I managed to figure out a way to distract these bully birds by offering some of their favorite foods in a separate, more easily accessible feeder, so this mix goes mainly into the tube feeder.
Unfortunately, I just saw one goldfinch show up to check out the new food, but flew off without eating anything. He hasn’t been back. On the other hand, the house finches, house sparrows, and even chickadees seem to love it.
The sparrows tend to toss out some of the nyjer to get to the millet, but interestingly enough, the mourning doves seem to like it. Nothing is wasted. Now I have all sorts of bird seed mixes and feeders to cater to my various feathered friends.
I think as this is now summer, and there is actually lots of natural food (including actual thistles and sunflowers), maybe the goldfinch decided they don’t need to bother with competing with larger or more aggressive birds.
I intend to keep adding this for the rest of the season, and expect this to be especially popular with the return of cold weather. By the way, some of the finch seem to treat this as “dessert”. They eat at the safflower feeder for a few minutes, and then hop over to the finch blend.
We have tried dozens of mixes to find what works for us and this is the only one that makes us all happy. Other mixes bring starlings and grackles which pick on the smaller birds. We also have a problem being in the city, with pigeons.
This food takes care of all that. Don’t know exactly why, only that it does. I did read somewhere that the bigger birds don’t like fooling with the smaller seeds so maybe that’s it?? Who knows? Anyway, we get our goldies, red finches and purples along with the cardinals and a few sparrows.
Sometimes the sparrows have been pushy at the feeder, but they aren’t even sticking around too long. They do knock a little on the ground and the doves enjoy that. All good. Anyway, at this price we are thrilled because even other mixes that were much more expensive have caused problems.
We will continue to purchase this as long as our feathered friends are satisfied. It does leave some hulls to clean up in the evening when we service the feeder, but even that is an easy fix.
Live in a rental, second floor balcony, suburban Northeast U. S. , and wanted something less obtrusive so the neighbors don’t complain, and take away yet another simple enjoyment in life–feeding wildlife.
In January, so far we’re getting sparrows, blue jays, chickadees, tufted titmice, starlings, and occasional squirrels climb up for the peanuts and sunnies. It is entertainment for the kitties and the two-leggeds.
It does work well for less mess. Seems to completely be cleaned up from the shingled surface of the balcony by the end of each day. And expect there will be less plants emerging down on the ground from fallen seed, though the yard maintenance here is pretty delinquent, which is fine by me.
Let the grass and clover grow for the bunnies, and chemical free lawns, please. Can we at least try to save the planet, and have proper priorities for life on earth?.
Pennington Finch Blend Wild Bird Feed is specially formulated to attract finches and a range of birds. Vitamins and a mineral supplement are added to the food to create an enriched diet that birds love.
Keep your birds happy and well fed with Pennington Premium Seed Wild Finch Blend seed and food. Attracts Purple Finches, Goldfinches, Siskins, Cardinals, Doves, Chickadees and more.
Great quality bird seed! It does not cake up and “start growing” after getting wet (after it rains). I learned a lesson NOT to buy “cheap/inexpensive” bird seed because the cheaper stuff will cake up and start growing roots after it rains (roots will grow from the grass seeds in the feed).
This Pennington Premium Blend does not cake up and start growing after it rains. I live in Virginia and the Blue Jays, Cardinals, finches, and woodpeckers LOVE this bird feed. Not to mention the grackles (but I love the grackles too, they just eat so dang much!!).
I got this Pennington Wild Bird Premium Bird seed from Walmart Online, and a good deal ($17 for a 20lbs bag). Its the best deal I could find online for this particular bird seed.
I purchased this product from Walmart’s web purchase system through a search for thistle and the common name for this seed based on one usual source on the African continent. The product picture has black content in the bag – looks a lot like the bags of thistle we purchase.
Wrong. The bag we received contained yellow seeds (maybe millet? other seeds but not characteristically black thistle) or grain. If we wanted grain or mixtures of grains and seeds we would have purchased them – our nearby agricultural suppliers have them affordably in 40 or 50 pound bags and some birds like these products.
We have purchased thistle for specific birds and Walmart’s brick and mortar stores were a good source for some years for us. The online Walmart business was a good opportunity for Walmart but this most recent purchase was a big bust for Walmart on 3 counts: 1.
their web tool led to a product that was not the thistle I searched for. 2. the product Walmart’s picture was black and certainly looked like the, thistle I and others were looking to buy. 3. Returning the product required standing in line for maybe 15 or more minutes.
The point of a multi item purchase was to avoid driving to the store but getting rid of what we did not have a reason to buy negated any benefit of the on line purchase. And the store did not have the thistle in stock.
If you do not have the product be upfront with your customers and tell them. This was a small purchase but the lack of candor in Walmart website’s presentation of information and the fact that returning the Walmart provided product we had no intention of buying was inconvenient and totally offset the cost savings and convenience of the online purchase.
Walmart web based marking needs review and correction.
I’ve always used nadir seed for the Goldfinch feeders, but was open to try this blend. Watching the birds focus on all the other feeders and only coming around to feed on this one last told me they were not impressed.
It hung for almost two days before I could even see a dent in the level. As I sit here watching standing room only at the platform feeder – there are no birds at the feeder with this product.
Pennington Wild Bird Food is a blend of high quality grains and seeds that attract a wide variety of beautiful and colorful birds. This bird food is great to feed birds anytime of the year. This wild bird food blend contains grains in the proper ratio that birds love.
Review for Pennington EarthSmart Ecozebo Bird Feeder and the Pennington Select Peanut Butter Delight High Energy seed & Suet Mix Wild Bird Feed: I received the feeder and was pleased with the lightweight, but seemingly strong, construction and design.
Included was the mix of both seed and peanut butter suet nuggets. I think the suet nuggets, in particular, are good for the birds who are winter-feeding and it had a good quantity of sunflower seeds which also seems to be a favorite of the birds in my Boise, Idaho area.
I did wonder if the nuggets would flow freely to the port openings due to their larger size, but I checked and it was not a problem. I thought, at first, there were no instructions as to the operation of the feeder and how to fill it, and how to hang it properly for best usage.
I then realized that the “instructions” were a statement of features such as the Twist & Lock top, and its operation, and info on the port openings and their benefits. It would be helpful if the statement of features highlighted the usage and features by simply using a larger font in certain areas which would have helped me notice the information much sooner.
The hanging apparatus consists of a plastic tether that is secured at the base of the twist & lock top and runs through a hole in the top of the lock and terminates with a small loop secured with a metal clamp.
Although I was able to hang the feeder by using string through the termination loop, it would have been nice to have had more options such as a larger loop which might have allowed me to loop through and onto a branch directly.
It worked fine, but the tether doesn’t seem too sturdy and I am wondering if it will break with the weight of the seed or if a squirrel lands on the feeder or strong winds affect it. Time will tell! It sure is a pretty addition to my back yard, however! So far, I have observed smaller birds such as House Finches, House Sparrows, Song Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos and Black-capped chickadees using the feeder.
It is fun to watch them! I have not, as yet, noticed any squirrels on the feeder (good!) and no larger birds such as Doves or Quails or Magpies, although they will feed from the ground underneath the feeder if the seed drops there.
I am looking forward to enjoying this EarthSmart Ecozebo Bird Feeder and the Pennington Select Peanut Butter Delight High Energy Seed & Suet Mix Wild Bird Feed for the benefit of all of the birds which visit my yard each day in all seasons.
This is my “go to” bird seed. It keeps peace around here. When the feeders go out suddenly there is a riot. We had a bumper crop of blueberries this year on our three mature bushes and enjoyed them immensely.
There was one picking left of them when the bird feeders ran out of seed. Well, besides being “honest” I can be a tad “lazy” at times, too. The birds had miraculously left the blueberries alone and we had been happily devouring them.
So, after the sunflower seeds had been gone for a few days I went out to get the rest of the blueberries. it was a massacre!!! Those feathered dinosaurs had devoured everything last one of the blueberries!!!! Leaving a few tattered ones hanging there as a warning to me to not let the sunflower seeds run out again or.
I was next!!!! Innyhoo, I learned my lesson and won’t be letting the feeders run out again!!!! The bigger the bag the cheaper the price on these, too! They do have some debris in the bags. a few sticks and twigs.
But, the debris tells me that the seeds are not over-processed and there’s really little of the debris. I hate to admit it, but I *have* bought other brands of black oil sunflower seeds. and regretted it.
much more debris and the see felt “light”. These days I try to keep life simple without complicating things so. I only buy Pennington!!! Oh, and the squirrels like them, too! But, that’s a war-story more fit for the History Channel.
Squirrels detest the pepper oil but birds love it. Fortified with vitamins for reproductive health. Ideal blend for chickadees, cardinals, nuthatches, finches and juncos. It is blended with spicy Habanero oil and contains the ingredients your birds prefer.
Contains sunflower, peanuts, safflower, calcium carbonate, red pepper extract, mineral oil, flaxseed oil, mixed tocopherols, vitamin A & E supplement, riboflavin, D- calcium, pantothenate, vitamin B-12 supplement, biotin and roughage products.
This blend has good variety and is surprisingly well priced for the amount. I feed birds only half the year – mid November thru early May. Winter can be harsh in the midwest so need a seed combo that would be nutritious for my most common visitors – finches, sparrows, mourning doves, and the occasional cardinals and bluejays.
So my main hanging feeder, which gets devoured daily, is this Kaytee blend. It has a nice variety with a generous proportion of sunflower seeds. On the ground I use it as a base and add (shell-less) sunflower chips for the tiny birds, and fruit and nuts for songbirds, and some larger seeds and extra sunflower seeds for the ginormous mourning doves.
This is not the first time i have bought this food to find it no good. Last year i bought a couple bags, opened one to put into my lidded container, left the 2nd one unopened for two weeks while i used first bag.
By the time i opened 2nd bag, it had a ton of webs and little moths in it. Horrid. Tried this feed again recently, bought two bags, opened one and it’s powdery and not fresh. Nearly all of the sun flower seeds i found inside have a small hole in them where something got into it.
I had to go buy a big bag of black sun flower seed from the Lowes store, and then buy more feed that is fresh. The whole reason for me to buy feed online is because i live in the boondocks and convenience means a lot.
I am very unhappy with this feed. I have not even opened the 2nd bag. I don’t recommend this and i won’t buy again. horrid. I do however recommend chewy. Just not this feed.
This is the second or third time I’ve ordered this product and I believe it’s a good value. I put it out on my platform feeder and it attracts most of the bird species that visit my backyard. The only drawback is that it also attract many Starlings, Grackles, and House Sparrows, which I don’t particularly want.
I only put out a small amount in the morning, so these birds move on when the food runs out. Then I put out more later in the day for the other birds that couldn’t get to the feeder in the morning. I prefer to attract Cardinals, Blue Jays, Woodpeckers, Chickadees, Titmice, and Wrens.
Rationing this fruit and nut mix enables me to offer it without too much being wasted on unwanted birds.
I bought a bag of this seed a while ago in hopes to give the birds outside something to pick at while it was cold and snowy. I couldn’t get anything too expensive at the time, but now I wish I woulda spend a couple extra bucks on something better.
Most of this seed is just corn, milo, and some grain. Even when it’s been out for weeks, there’s so much waste because the birds pick out the little bit of millet and sunflower seeds they can. I’d say if you have a lot of birds in your area that like corn, grain, milo, go for it.
But it really didn’t work out for me unfortunately.
This is a true economy bird seed. The birds barely touch it (a good mix of SE PA natives), though the deer gobble it down. I stopped buying the cheaper stuff at a local home improvement store because of the amount of clay found in each bag.
This one is much worse! There is a powder that goes everywhere when filling the feeders, so much that it leaves a coating on the plastic windows that I can’t see through until I’m right on top of the feeders.
This product is a good basic bird seed to draw backyard birds as well as wild turkeys, deer, and squirrels. It is cost efficient and works well in most hopper, tube, and platform feeders. In my experience, this seed does not necessarily draw unusual birds, but the more common ones enjoy it and always come back for more.
I, also, mix this seed with corn and put it out on the ground in the field behind my home for the wild turkeys, deer, and squirrels to enjoy. I recommend this product to be used in the manner I do.
Black oil sunflower seed, the most desired seed by birds. Attracts cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, finches of all types, sparrows, jays, woodpeckers, grosbeaks and indigo buntings. Has high concentration of oil making it more desirable.
Ingredients: Oil Sunflower Seed Feeding Instructions: Fill a platform, tower, tube or hopper feeder as needed. Provide food at all times during the year. Maintain a clean and healthy environment for your backyard visitors.
Offer a source of fresh water for drinking and bathing. Supply ample cover and proper placement for feeders with protection of trees and shrubs.
My wild birds love this. I get a nice assortment of house finches, sparrows, red-winged blackbirds, scrub jays, chickadees, juncos, and more. I even had a black phoebe the other day. With this mix, you can keep a bird book around so you can identify them.
I can sometimes get a better deal at Ace but haven’t been able to for months, so this is a great price and super convenient to have it delivered to your door. My birds are messy and toss it on the ground so I get quail families wandering through the yard as well.
And then sometimes my dog decides she likes it too. (So much for all those dog food ads that brag ‘no grains. ‘ My dog loves grains and her poop shows it. ).
Almost out of seed for our feeder, I needed delivery fast, so I chose to buy from Petco for same day delivery even though this bag was 50% larger than I had been buying elsewhere. Good thing. The birds love this stuff — house finches, gold finches, black headed gross beaks on the feeder; juncos, morning doves (and, of course, a squirrel below) and occasional other species — plus other birds like Wilson’s warbler and white-crowned sparrow, even a hermit thrush, that must feel safe.
With all the activity. They go through at least 5 cups a day!.
The birds like it, but it’s cold out and they’re hungry so they would probably eat anything. But the best part is for the birds in my area, there is v little waste which is easily noticeable Every other bulk seed bags, the not eaten parts is quite a bit.
So maybe they like this mix a lot. It’s a good balance overall.
A 10 lb bag that contains suet pieces blended with seeds for a powerful boost of energy. Fortified with vitamins for reproductive health. Ideal blend for cardinals, chickadees, nuthatches, titmice and woodpeckers.
Songbird Crunch with suet is mixed with fruit, nuts and suet pieces for America’s favorite songbirds. Also contains sunflower, safflower, peanuts, raisins, dehydrated cherries, calcium carbonate, wheat flour, rendered beef suet, glucose, natural colors, mineral oil, flaxseed oil, mixed tocopherols, vitamin A & E supplement, riboflavin, D- calcium pantothenate, vitamin B-12 supplement, biotin and roughage products.
This bird seed is the best I’ve ever bought! It attracts more varieties of birds than I have ever seen at my feeder when using other bird seeds. For the first time in 20 years, I actually had a bluebird at the feeder! I’ve seen cardinals, woodpeckers, nuthatch, snowbirds (junco), sparrows.
The food is a mixture of suet is mixed with fruit, nuts and suet pieces, sunflower, safflower, peanuts, raisins, dehydrated cherries, and other delectable items to entice the birds. I highly recommend this bird seed!.
This Bird seed was more expensive than my usual Kaytee songbird, but they’ve been out of stock for a while, and decided to try a new brand. This was HIGH quality- no fillers and really like the added suet pieces.
I have never heard of this brand before, but the birds in my backyard went super crazy with this bird food. Just within one day my bird feeder was half gone. I have to fill it up twice a week. I got this brand at Ace Hardware because they were having a a sale buy one get one bag free.
Entice wild birds to frequent your backyard with Kaytee Sunflower Seed Bird Food – 10lb. This premium seed blend attracts beautiful, uncommon species such as woodpeckers, cardinals, nuthatches, grosbeaks, chickadees and more.

Reviews From Real Customers
Oh wow, a bit of a mishap with this feed. Wish I would of read the other reviews that mentioned the seeds are pulverized. most of it is like sand, obliterated! My husband came home to find a massive box at the bottom of our driveway, in the middle, and had to put his hazards on and pull over to the side because he couldn’t turn in.
He couldn’t even fit the box in the back of our SUV. It was the size of an old school washing machine. He had trouble getting the box through the front door of our home! He says “what did you order, it’s from chewy but not very heavy.
a dog bed?” I said “. no, just seed” I never dreamed they would put 3 small bags in such a huge box and with zero padding, but they did. So when I saw that the seed was extremely chipped up I assumed it was from the bags banging against each other inside the massive box.
I opened one bag and tried to put it in my sunflower feeder but it ran right through the holes. I couldn’t even put it in my platform feeder because 75% falls through the screen. I put some in a tube feeder but the birds kept picking bits out and throwing it on the ground, looking for a bigger seed to fly off with.
I ended up mixing it with some whole sunflower seeds and putting it in a tube feeder, hoping some of the little finches and wrens might grab it. So far there’s a lot on the ground that nobody seems to want.
One caveat, I did get these bags on sale. I thought it was a good deal, something like 40% off, and I have bought Kaytee products many times before. If it would of been noted that it was on sale because it was damaged or defective then buying it would of been a risk I assumed but it was not marked so.
I wouldn’t have purchased it, even on discount, if I had known it was tiny bits that the birds don’t even bother with. I can’t even imagine how I could use it aside from maybe homemade suet cakes but it would take forever to use up that way and they’d probably go rancid before I could.
I have two unopened bags that I can see through the plastic are also pulverized so I’ll just be returning those.
I was very happy to see the quality of these chips and hearts. They are very clean and no fillers. I have purchased other brands from companies that only do medium and coarse grind and was very disappointed.
Medium and coarse grind is very inviting for birds you rather not have at your feeders. Also Chewy is really great to deal with no hassle. And no I didn’t get something free for this review. Happy birding!.
Give your feathered friends quality Safflower Seed. It’s specially enriched with Bird-Kote to promote overall health. The wild bird seed is ideal for cardinals, nuthatches, evening grosbeaks, chickadees, buntings, red-winged blackbirds and other birds.
The 1-star reviewers complain no birds come and that even squirrels will not eat these seeds. I give it 5-STARS and have used it for years!! I learned awhile ago that switching from your usual seed to this Safflower Seed is not going to go over well.
Don’t dishearten; it definitely takes awhile for the birds to come. Squirrels WILL NOT eat this seed! That was a HUGE plus for me! ! Once that first bird checks it out and then comes back and/or sends another to try it, the “tweet” goes out; waitlists needed.
I kid you not, we get so many birds esp cardinals, finches and many others; some I’ve yet to ID. My feeder hangs from a pole firmly set up on a slight hill, overlooking the grassy front court. The birds sing, chirp and swoop taking turns at the feed ports.
It’s a joy to see them and boy oh boy, those birds can eat!! I can’t keep up with them!.
I love this seed. Hey trolls, the birds love the soft twiggy stuff. Don’t knock it until you try it. There is NO twiggy stuff under the birdfeeder. And, birds have NO problem throwing seeds they don’t like down on the ground.
Beats the heck out of me, what they use that twiggy stuff for, but if they want to take it back. Or if they throw it down, the mice/chipmunks take it. Somebody is eating it. Pennington price is beyond reasonable, compared to the other brands.
And, I even feed the seed to my cockatiel. He loves it the best; never seen him eat the twiggy stuff, but never saw it lying on the floor of the cage either. Twiggy stuff seems to be quite welcome at my house, and they especially devour the seed.
Thank you Pennington, keep up the good work. I have been buying from you for years, and will continue for many more.
I bought Safflower Seed primarily for two reasons: (1) Hoping squirrels would not eat it (because they habitually scarf up most of the other bird seed that ground-feeding birds will not or can’t don’t eat at from the squirrel-proof feeder, and (2) hoping that mourning doves WOULD eat it, because they’re one of my favorite kinds of ground-feeders.
Mourning doves can not can’t eat from the squirrel-proof feeder, although I’ve seen a couple of them try and fail because their large size and weight shut off the protective cover over the seed inside.
Late yesterday I put Safflower Seed on the ground for the first time. As of this afternoon I had seen neither squirrels nor any birds eat any. Earlier today one squirrel ignored the Safflower Seed and tried its persistent best to find some leftover regular seed on the ground seed to eat.
Finding none, it tried to get into the squirrel-proof feeder, even tried to climb the pole up to it or jump down onto to from a high overhead limb, but of course it failed and eventually wandered away, still not touching the Safflower Seed.
Then, voila! A bevy of 5 mourning doves arrived late this afternoon and began eating the Safflower Seed. Two wandered away but 3 kept on eating as long as I stood indoors watching from my window. Verdict so far: Apparently the squirrels WILL NOT eat the Safflower Seed at all.
The mourning doves WILL. I have seen no other birds of any kind eat any of the Safflower Seed, although a variety of ground-feeding birds have pecked all around it, trying to find leftover sunflower, millet, or other seed I had been putting out before.

For years we bought a high end, quality bird seed from a local store. The store has since closed so we looked around for a replacement seed as good as what we had been buying. My wife worked at the store that closed and was familiar with the seed we had used.
One day while shopping at Sam’s Club we discovered Members Mark Supreme Blend Wild Bird Food. My wife looked at the contents of this seed and said it appeared to be comparable to the seed we used to buy.
She read the seed content and discovered it contained no milo, a filler that many companies use in their bird seed mixes but that no birds (other than pheasants and turkeys) in our part of the country will eat.
She also noticed a high content of sunflower seeds in the mix, which is a favorite of most birds. We have been using the Member’s Mark Supreme Blend Wild Bird Food for a year now and the birds that frequent our feeders really go for it.
I found this bird seed about 3 months ago and am thrilled with all the different birds it has attracted. I have identified at least 15 different types of birds at my feeders and of course squirrels and chipmunks come too.
Many birds love sunflower seeds and this food is heavy on the sunflower seeds. It also has peanuts, raisins, safflower seeds, and millet. The millet is the only thing that does not always get eaten entirely.
The only issue I’ve found with this food is it’s availability in store so I just ordered 2 bags online. It came quickly with no problems. I’m glad to know that it is available online. I’d hate to disappoint my feathered friends!.
I currently feed this to my wild birds, but I mix in premium mix. My last few bags have had no Safflower seed, maybe the entire bag had about 15 peanuts, there were branch stems. The white millet is ignored by all my birds, Cardinals, Titmouse, Chickadee, Woodpeckers, etc.
The doves will eat it, but those have all but disappeared in my area. I would like the white millet removed in favor of white stripped sunflower seed, or more safflower or peanuts. This bag is not supreme but is a great filler for other supreme seed.
Maybe reduce the bag size to 25 lbs, keep the price the same, but add more quality ingredients. I do enjoy the Members Mark product line, but this is a miss for me.

Reviews From Real Customers
We’ve got blue jays, cardinals, mourning doves, finches, chickadees, nuthatches, crows and wild turkeys, chipmunks, a variety of squirrels – they all give 2 thumbs up for this. Even the deer seem to appreciate this particular blend.
So it’s been great for having lots of wildlife in our backyard.
I buy this to feed to the birds in my yard and at our local park. They seem to love it. I like to buy the 10lb. bag, to keep up with the birds in the park and in my back yard. I think that the price is extrememly reasonable considering the high quality of the ingredients.
The birds love it!! People may not realize but birds are like cats, Picky!! I grabbed a bag of this bird food while I was at the store just because it was convenient, and I was in a hurry. There are some very happy birds in my yard! I buy it all the time.

First ingredient listed is “Grain Products. ” I’m guessing that is mostly corn and corn dust. Corn is a lousy wild bird food. Second is white millet, third is sunflower seed, both decent. Next is calcium carbonate (otherwise known as limestone) which can be beneficial for bone development.
Bottom line, don’t buy wild bird seed that contains corn. Also, check out sites like Audobon to learn what makes good (and bad) seed mixes.
I recently bought 10 40lb bags of this birdseed. to say i am very upset is an understatement. the amount of dust that’s in these bags is exessive. I have resorted to sifting the seed before filling the feeders after having to unclog the feeders from the dust which prevents the birds from getting the seed.
I have opened two of the bags and they have been very dusty to the point when i sifted the seed I must have had a good 5 lbs of dust. to me this is false advertising as it states its 40 lbs of bird seed if 5 is dust that’s only 35 lbs of seed.
Then i opened the 3rd bag and it was all moldy so must have gotten wet at some point before i got it as it was the day i bought it. beware what seems like a good deal is not such a good deal when you add in the extra work of cleaning the feeders and sifting the seed.
Don’t understand how they can call this premium seed.

We feed birds year round and have purchased Sunflower seeds for Farm and Fleet for many years. Our most recent purchase was not the package pictured above, but rather a green and orange bag with the name Valley Splendor.
Yes, these are black oil sunflower seeds, but they have much more chaff (hulls and stems). My unscientific observation is they have something like 10% waste in the bag. If Valley Splendor continues to supply sunflower seeds to Farm and Fleet, they need to do a much better job of cleaning the seed.
Should Farm and Fleet continue to carry this inferior grade of bird seed we will be forced to look elsewhere to feed the birds. We have had so many great experiences with Farm and Fleet and hope this anomaly will turn out to be just that – and they will get back to the high quality we have grown accustomed to purchasing.
Product is great and I usually buy a couple of bags a month. However, the price went sky high and the sale price is 50% more than the normal sale price $19. 99 to $29. 99. I cannot afford this and will be purchasing my black oil sunflower seeds elsewhere where they are much more affordable.
Too bad because I usually came into the store and made at least $100 in additional purchases every time I picked up the bags of seed.
Good bird food. contains a lot of good millet and black oiler sunflower seeds. If you don’t want any cracked corn, don’t buy this product. There’s quite a bit of cracked corn in the mix. It doesn’t have any milo, which is a plus.
I’ve been using this seed for many years. The sparrows love it. Also some other kinds of birds. There’s nothing wrong with sparrows, they need food too.
There are many different types of bird seed that can be used to attract wild birds. The most common type of bird seed is sunflower seed. Other popular types of bird seed include: safflower seed, millet, and thistle seed.
Each type of bird seed has its own unique benefits that can attract different types of birds.
Sunflower seed is the most popular type of bird seed because it is high in fat and protein, which is essential for birds. Sunflower seed is also relatively cheap and easy to find. Safflower seed is another popular type of bird seed because it is high in fat and protein, but it is also slightly more expensive than sunflower seed.
Millet is a type of bird seed that is high in carbohydrates, which is important for birds during the winter months. Millet is also relatively cheap and easy to find. Thistle seed is a type of bird seed that is high in fat and protein, but it is also very expensive.
