Premium quality clean Nyjer Thistle Seed wild bird food
Attract one of the UK’s most colourful wild birds in to your garden with this nutritious, oil rich seed.
A firm favourite with the Goldfinch, Nyjer Seed is very similar in looks to the thistle seeds that they would usually eat when seeking food in the wild.
Nyjer Seed is a tiny seed so requires its own style of feeder. Designed so the seed doesn’t fall out of the feeding ports, Nyjer Seed feeders have small holes where your wild birds can feed from.
Finches find this easier than others as their beaks are narrower and can fit in the feeder holes. Alternatively, you can mix Nyjer Seed in with your regular seed mix so it is beneficial for all your wild birds.
A real delicacy, and is packed with oil, making it an ideal food source. Loved by goldfinches!
Nyjer (Niger) seed is one of the most popular wild bird foods available for garden birds. It is highly nutritious and contains lots of oil. In terms of the actual seed, Nyjer seed is an ultra fine oil rich seed which is eaten by numerous garden bird species and is especially loved by the beautiful Goldfinches. Because Nyjer is so fine, it is advised that it is fed in specialist nyjer or thistle seed feeders – as conventional feeders have ports that are just too large, and the seed would be wasted.
Attracts Collared Dove, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Redpoll, Siskin, Turtle Dove.
