Nyjer Bird Feeders

Bird Feeder Types: Nyjer Bird Feeders

nyjer bird feeders

Nyjer seed is a black oil seed imported from Africa and Asia for wild bird seed. Nyjer are extremely tiny seeds contained within a black shell, each being smaller than a grain of rice. Finches are particularly fond of Nyjer seed and will flock to Nyjer birdfeeders. These birdfeeders are designed with extremely small feeding ports allowing the tiny seeds to be extracted by the fine billed finch. Some Nyjer feeders are made of a tube of fine mesh which allows the goldfinch to cling directly to the feeder and feast upon its contents.

Some backyard birdwatchers will complain Nyjer feeders are messy leaving a pile of seed below the feeding stations. The mess is not lost seed, but rather the black outer layer of the Nyjer seed. Finches are extremely adept at extracting the meat of the seed before disposing of the shell. Squirrels aren’t fond of Nyjer seed so you can purchase a fairly inexpensive Nyjer bird feeder without worry of squirrel damage. For hours of entertainment and beauty, invest in a Nyjer bird feeder. The finches in your neighborhood will thank you with endless songs.
