We feed nothing but sunflower hearts.  They are a bit more expensive to buy, 
but since there are no shells, you get more "meat" for your money.  All kinds 
of birds seem to love them, and there is no mess of weeds under the feeders.  
Also none of the growth inhibitor from sunflower shells.  We feed an awful 
lot of birds - they just seem to come in swirls.  The cats sit beside the 
window and twitch their tails, but the only cat that goes out is far too fat 
and lazy to make the effort to catach a bird.
