Wild bird vs pet bird food- Wild bird food, depending on where you live, is usually a mixture of different types of seeds, consisting of thistle, sunflower, safflower, millet, and sorghum. Furthermore, numerous wild bird feeds consist of peanuts and corn, which are preferred by certain species like cardinals and blue jays.

Domestic bird food is normally a mix of similar seeds, with added nutritionally dense pellets added in. Conures, doves, and pigeons enjoy millet, as do budgies and parakeets. They also enjoy safflower and sunflower seeds when they're hulled, though parrots and hookbills will like larger seed types.
