Hah. University City Cardinals feed on Sunflower or Safflower with thistle 2 ft away. They never touch the thistle here.
We were given a nut wreath for the birds and had it out a week as mass of birds ignored it even though we moved it around to different locations. Finally some House Finches noticed it next to a safflower feeder and it is now being used.
