Safflower seeds compared to Sunflower seeds

Food for thought. Are safflower seeds superior to offering sunflower seeds? The nutritional composition of both seeds are similar and both are high in fat, low in calcium and many nutrients. The big difference is that safflower seeds are more bitter tasting and therefore many birds consume fewer of them over the more yummy sunflower seed given the choice. Macaws are high fat parrots and therefore sunflower seeds are ok in moderation. There are many nuts out there that are healthier than the sunflower
