    Just a tip for people who have trouble with squirrels. I use only safflower seeds and have yet to have a squirrel go after the seed. The seeds attract titmice, gray jays of some kind, all kinds of finches, mourning doves (they love it!) and cardinals. The cardinals may fuss at first, but if you keep it up, they’ll come.

    The nice thing about safflower seed is that the blackbirds and sparrows don’t care for it. We have finches and cardinals all day long with the safflower seed. The mourning doves are too fat to fit on the feeder, so I leave handfuls of it on the deck railing. They enjoy that, and the cats enjoy the show.
