Nyjer Seed - Bird Food
This fine textured seed, rich in oil, is often regarded as a highly beneficial food for garden birds and is thought to have played a significant role in increasing population numbers of Goldfinch and other declining species in recent years.
"It is all seed - no empty husks. When the birds are not eating it quickly, it does not go off, even if the bag takes months to go through. Our population of gold finches has increased significant since putting this seed out." Review via Reevoo from Tansy, Ventnor, December 2019
The fine Nyjer Seed also appeals to the larger Collared and Turtle Dove. Offering Nyjer Seed can help to attract these species to your garden if you have them in the area.
The seed is particularly fine - too fine for a standard seed feeder - and should be fed from one of our specialist Nyjer feeders designed with smaller gauge feeding ports than standard seed feeders to minimise the amount of food that is lost from the feeder.
To further reduce waste, we recommend using a feeder tray with our Nyjer feeders to catch any falling seed.
