Safflower is a hard-shelled seed that attracts Northern Cardinals, Mourning Doves, Black-capped Chickadees, Carolina Chickadees, and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks. Some birdwatchers switch to safflower during periods when grackles and starlings are present. The seed is difficult for them to open and so discourages feeder visits. And it is one bird seed that is not liked by squirrels (although hungry enough and they seem to eat anything)!
