Safflower, or "Cardinal Crack" is great alone in a feeder to attract cardinals, house and purple finches and doves. Chickadees and Nuthatches are also known to eat it, but they are more likely to head for black oil if it's nearby. It's a great way to provide privacy at a feeder for the more skittish cardinal and can be used when grackles and starlings are all over your regular seed feeders since they don't like it. It is sometimes misunderstood as a deterrent to grackles, starlings and squirrels - in reality, they just don't like it and will move on to feeders with other food choices.
