Habitat for birds is always off, and thus it is that some of their natural food sources. Fortunately, in almost every supermarket you find Seed wild-birds. But what kind to buy? Did the Cardinals have the same Wild Bird Seed, nuthatches do? These questions and get an idea of what to buy give, here is a list of more affordable and more birds seeds they eat. Remember that birds do not read these lists and have learned to adapt. In some areas, some of these birds have learned to eat or not there are some seeds on this list, but for the most part, they will be. Moreover, this list is not exhaustive for the bird that eats seeds.
Sunflower is available in two versions: black oil and striped. Striped varieties for human consumption, has a harder shell that can be difficult for birds to open and usually not as nutritious for the birds. Black-oiled seeds thinner and softer, making them easier to crack. They are high in fat and calories than striped. Make sure that the sunflower seeds of wild bird seed to get into the housing, as housing seeds will spoil quickly, so the bird damage. If you must use purified variety, with only what you can in one day or two to eat together.

Safflower is slightly smaller than sunflower seeds and a thick skin. They like the Cardinals, Blue Jays, chickadees, doves, finches, goldfinches, Grosbeaks, red sparrows, Juncos, Doves, Purple finches, redpolls, tits and Towhees. Presumably, proteins, Grackles, starlings do not like safflower and must leave the feeders alone, but I’ve also seen listings that say the Blue Jays and others not fun. As I said earlier, wild bird food and will adapt to try it and see what it attracts.
Niger Seed Wild-birds enjoy the doves, finches, house finches, pine siskin and purple finches, redpolls, White – Throated Sparrows and especially putters.
