Nyjer / Niger Seed

Nyjer Seed Wild Bird Food


Nyjer or Niger Seed wild bird food is smaller than other seeds or straight wild bird foods and will fall from most standard wild bird seed feeders.  Dedicated feeders should be used which have much smaller feeding ports usually found as very small slits in the feeding tube.

Depending on where you site the feeder it could also be advisable to use a tray that attaches to the feeder or ground catching tray in order to reduce wastage of the seed.

A favorite of wild birds such as the Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Coal Tits, Great Tits, House Sparrows, Tree Sparrows, Bullfinches, Chaffinches and Siskins.

Try mixing wild bird seeds with added niger and sunflower hearts to attract a larger range of species to the same feeder, mixing the the foods into a standard  feeder will prevent the small niger from escaping.

We have a range of feeders suitable for feeding this seed which can be viewed here.
