I have regularly purchased 40 to 60 pounds of Nijer seeds a month for the last few years. My last two purchases of 40 pound each have been a disappointment. The seeds were old and dried out. The Finches wouldn’t touch them and the common sparrows and wrens would have nothing to do with them. Plus, the seeds were dirty enough to clog up my feeders. These seeds aren’t cheap - so I’m moving on to spend my money elsewhere.
Absolutely the dirtiest seed I have ever purchased, and I buy several hundred pounds a year. The dust nearly choked me! I tried wagner to save a couple bucks. You get what you pay for!!
Just as you would expect, the birds that visit my feeders chow down eagerly on these nyjer seeds. I like being able to buy a really large bag of them, too.
the starlings are finally gone. thanks
Every year I look forward to their return and provide this seed. It’s a BIG hit for the last several years.
Have no idea what happens with birds or the seed. Was ordering this, birds stopped eating so I ordered another brand. Birds not interested. Back to Wagners and everyone's happy. The Wagner's nyjer looked shiny and I guess, plump. The prior seed was dull and dry looking. Maybe something in the processing at one point. Whatever, the lesser goldfinch are once again a happy flock.
The birds of all sizes love it, and now I think I need a nijer feeder to allow the smaller birds to get it without the larger birds eating it all. I have two feeders, and nijer (and sunflower seed when I use them) are favored over the feeder with mixed seeds. Southern California birds, and on, I don't know all the species, but a lot of different ones.
The smaller birds are always eating at the nyjer socks.
This is good bird food. It encourages cardinals and chickadees which are my favorite birds. And it discourages sparrows, which are not my favorite.
Quality seed with little to no waste. Attracts finches and other birds.
