Product Overview

Nyjer Seed is the absolute favorite of finches, such as the American goldfinch, house finch, purple finch, pine siskin and other small songbirds. This tiny delicacy is used in finch feeders that have smaller holes and tiny perches -- perfect for the finches but discouraging to larger birds.

  • Nyjer seed is a perfect choice for nurturing finches with its high fat and protein content
  • Nyjer seed packs an incredible 150,000 seeds per pound
  • Seeds create no waste, no mess, no growth and more visits to your feeder
  • Use with a finch tube feeder
  • Wagner’s has been a trusted supplier of wild bird food for over 100 years
  • Tips for selecting birdseed at The Home Depot

QUALITY CONTROL

I was extremely pleased w/ my first two bags of Wagner's Nyjer Seed. My finches loved it! I ordered my 3rd bag & filled my feeder with it. The finches wouldn't eat it. Eventually, they didn't even fly into my yard. I had thought they migrated -or- were attacked by a predator bird…. I purchased the 10 lb bag of Wagner Nyjer seed also from Home Depot. I filled the same feeder w/ it. The finches were back in their original numbers within two days! Has anyone else recently had this problem? Could it have been a bad batch? The printed info on the bag was in 'black' ink NOT 'red' as shown online. Also said the country of origin was 'Ethiopia'… I would appreciate your thoughts. Thank YOU!
Asked by: BeachyGirl
I'm on 2nd bag, both arrived with the green lettering. First bag from Ethiopia: rusty brown in color and VERY dusty. Second bag from India: dark brown to black, almost no dust. Fortunately, birds ate them both, although second bag has a lot more birds coming around. That just may be that the word is out on the birdie hotline ;) I will look for an option to request the product from India next time. I do wonder where the red lettering bag of seed comes from though.

January I found no stores were stocking this seed, I read the reviews for this product and they were mixed from excellent to bad, but ordered despite some bad reviews. Am very happy and so are the birds. Having this shipped to store makes this a very affordable and is much less expensive that the 20lb I was buying. I will be buying this product again.

As an avid birder, I feed a VARIETY of birds on our property-- but when it comes to the Goldfinches --i cant keep enough of this around. 3 sock feeders and one tube feeder. I have to refill them all (on average) twice a day. As of Feb 2017 im feeding about 30 visiting American Goldfinches and about 15 Lesser Goldfinches at any given time which has been equaling just under 20lbs a month. (photos attached) Our local Home Depot (Visalia, Ca) has stopped stocking ALL of the Wagner's brand and has replaced it with an over priced, lower quality brand that my plethora of wild birds are refusing to eat. I will continue buying Wagner's products BUT will have to go directly to Wagner's site now since its not available on the shelves from our local store anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nyjer Bird Seed We were buying 5 lb bags of finch seed from a local nursery in So Cal. Finches are small birds but they know how to eat seed. A 5 lb bag did not last long and at $3.00-4.00/lb it was very expensive to maintain. I bought this 50 lb bag and was worried the birds would not take to the change. It was seamless. The birds loved the seed and I'm about ready to order another bag. The price is half the price per pound of a retail 5 lb bag.

I have two thistle feeders that can attract around 20 or more birds at a time. As you can imagine, it needs to be frequently refilled. The quantity (50 lbs) is a lot but economical if you get a lot of birds like I do. The smell seems fresh and the birds seem to love it. Mostly American goldfinches eat it, as well as some house/purple finches, dark eyed juncos and mourning doves who happily pick at the seeds that fall to the floor. I've even seen the curious black capped chickadee, tufted titmouse, Downy woodpecker and even red bellied woodpecker check it out! The birds come back day after day, sometimes fighting their friends over the seeds. I have had this bag for a little over a month now, and all kinds of birds seem to love it, including house sparrows (which usually do not eat thistle). As a human, I get a lot of delight and entertainment watching different kinds of birds visit my deck day after day :)

The only challenge is storing it away from critters until you use it. The 50 pound bag was delivered on time and in good condition. I use 1 gal ziplock bags to store the seed until needed. I love watching my feathered friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from our finches love it I've tried other name brand nyjer seed sold I box stores and some were a waste of money. The finches would not eat them. I was concerned about buying 50 lbs of seed the birds would not eat. I was relieved when they totally loved it. We live in So Cal and our yard is home to 20-30 finches.

The last bag was not screened very well. I had many kidney beans and twigs which end up blocking the feeding holes. I very much appreciate the bulk buy and especially how quick I receive it once I place the order.
