Yeah, don't feed them corn
Corn is treat food anyway, really, and only offers mediocre nutritional value. If I ever use it, it's only in winter to give the birds a little extra fat and energy for the cold nights. It's certainly not essential though. As to why they won't eat it, who knows? They can be fickle buggers when they want to be. If you really want them to have it, maybe try mixing in a bit of olive oil. I swear if I'd dipped dog muck in olive oil, mine would have eaten it
