IS BIRD SEED GENETICALLY MODIFIED?

I received a question the other week asking if  any bird seed / bird food  is genetically modified.  I do not know so I could not answer.

I was also asked –  if we  buy bird seed which is generically modified  and then put it in our feeders – would wild birds know it was different and not eat the bird food?

These are two good questions. 

Does anyone know the answer?

I know bird food is produced to the highest standards, but can it be separated from GM crops and does it matter if bird food is genetically modified?

I think I need help here to figure this one out.
