Price is good, fast delivery

Items are always packaged with care. If seed cylinders are busted up you can bet the delivery company is to blame. Might be helpful if a red label was put on box saying Handle with care. Breakable.
They also attract woodpeckers

Ordered 3; 1 fell apart

I purchased these as they are supposedly tasty for most of my visiting birds, but not to the flock of Red-winged blackbirds that were decimating my other stackers. The first package I opened crumbled into large chunks. I put up the other 2, but they are only eaten by the house finches and a few lesser goldfinch. My Nuttall's Woodpeckers and White Breasted Nuthatches completely reject it. Also, a pair of Red-wings didn't get the memo and are eating these, just not very enthusiastically. I wouldn't purchase these again due to the limited birds they attract. (I'm in Ojai, California)

Thanks for your feedback. That third cylinder you mention should not have fallen apart, and I am concerned your package was mishandled during shipping. That is the only time we've seen these seed cylinders crumble. If you have photos of the crumbled cylinder and all sides of the shipping box you can email me, I will submit a shipping claim on your behalf. Look for dented corners, creases along box walls, smushed ends, and holes as evidence of the box being dropped or something too heavy dropped onto it.  Please always check over seed cylinders for squishy areas and loose seed and report any issues you find right away, so we can help resolve the issue with a shipping claim.
Since we are in MI, I'm less familiar with the eating habits and bird species in CA, but, typically yes, some species prefer safflower (cardinals and grosbeaks) and others don't (grackles and blackbirds). Using the Project FeederWatch website set to the southwest and safflower, here's a list of birds documented to eat this type of seed for your region:*106mz8e*_ga*NzY3NjUxMTM4LjE2NzQ5MjY0OTM.*_ga_QR4NVXZ8BM*MTY3OTQxMjI2MS4xMy4wLjE2Nzk0MTIyNjEuNjAuMC4w&_ga=2.55020907.1386874079.1679412262-767651138.1674926493
They don't list red-winged blackbird as a species that eats safflower, but I've learned not all birds have read the book/web resource and behave accordingly.  If you have other types of bird seed available, many species will consume their favorites first.  Peanuts and suet are the favorites of the woodpeckers and nuthatches we have in MI, and you might consider offering the Woodpecker Favorite cylinders we carry instead:

I hope these resources and suggestions help!

Safflower seed cylinder

I like the safflower because it lasts10 times longer than other seed cylinders. The starlings and grackles don't care for it and it still attracts the cardinals and woodpeckers.


Good birds, like it, mostly finches and cardinals and nuthatches are feeding off of it.

Doesn't Attract Undesireable Hordes of Starlings & Etc.

This is a great product at a very good price. Cardinals, finches tit mice and woodpeckers love it. So good that I ordered a 12 pack of these cylinders. More on this shipment later as there was damage and problems in shipping the case of 12 that is now in resolution. The order of 2 were shipped timely and received in great condition.
