Actually plain white sugar is refined and cleaner. Do not use anything but refined Cain sugar!

Apparently regular sugar is bleached and contains some other artificial things in it. Not sure if it makes a difference to the birds, but I do not like the idea of there being chemical residues in the sugar.
