Valley Farms Cardinal Mix Wild Bird Food contains a mix of ingredients.

Striped & Black Oil Sunflower Seed:
These are the seed of choice when it comes to wild bird food preference. A majority of birds will feed on the sunflower seed with it’s high fat, protein, and nutrient content. Black oil sunflower seeds are somewhat plumper than the striped version, have more oil and more caloric value.
Both of these versions of sunflower are readily eaten by most wild birds. With a thinner shell, smaller birds can easily open the Black Oil version as compared to the striped sunflower seed.

You might know buckwheat from cereals we typically eat or as crop cover for fallow fields which means cultivated land that is allowed to lie idle during the growing season. For Cardinals, it has been seen that although oats and millet are sometimes used, buckwheat is a clear favorite.

Safflower Seed:
The safflower is a white colored seed with a tough shell. Cardinal really enjoy it and have no problem feeding on it. Doves, chickadees and grosbeaks also love this hearty seed, just to name a few species.
