30# Nyjer Seed
Finches of all kinds will flock to bird feeders filled with fresh Nyjer seed. Often mistakenly called "thistle" seed, Nyjer seed is from Eastern Africa and will not germinate into the common prickly thistle plant most people associate with it. Two things about Nyjer seed: 1) It must be fresh. Good quality Nyjer should be a shiny black color, reflecting that it's still holding its natural oils. Your birds will reject seed that is not fresh. 2) It must be kept dry. Damp Nyjer seed will be refused by your birds and will quickly mold. This seed is best served in tube feeders made specifically for finch food, with mesh or small holes.
