What Seed Attracts Goldfinches





  • I’ve found that Goldfinches will neglect a nyjer seed feeder if there is another feeder with sunflower meats even if the feeders are not that close together. Another observation: If you feed a Finch seed mix, the nyjer seeds will make their way to the feeder opening faster because of their size, and soon the opening will be almost exclusively composed of nyjer seeds. This is the case even with the fine Coles mix. Of course, you can always dump out the feeder and shake up the mix occasionally to avoid this. Not a problem if you have just one or two feeders. I guess this is the case with all seed mixes and we have gravity’s ways to thank for this.
