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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from no problems at all. received seed promptly, well packaged. birds love this, I put out 4 socks and... no problems at all. received seed promptly, well packaged. birds love this, I put out 4 socks and within minutes all socks are covered in the yellow finches. 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.

It is filled with a LOT of dust, bits of branches, and fairly large dirt clumps (size ranges from raisin-sized to small stones), which jams up even a simple funnel that I use to fill my narrow Nyjer feeder. The dust also makes itself to be to respiratory hazard while filling the feeder, creating clouds of brown dust. I've had to use a fan to gently blow the dust away while refilling my storage buckets, wearing a dust mask to prevent the irritants from getting into my lungs. This is the first time I bought this, and with how much dust and post-package processing I need to do after receiving it, I feel that the price is a bit too high. Other than that, if you don't mind the dust, buying it when it's on sale is pretty good considering Nyjer is expensive...

I live near the ocean and attract 40-60 finches each day to my 3 feeders among the shore pines. They empty the feeders each day and go through a 50 pound bag of seed in about 10 days. During the summer, It seems like I spend more money on thistle than I do on groceries! Although this seed is less expensive than others, it is good quality. In the two years I've been buying it, there are occasional twigs and dust, but neither the birds nor I are bothered by it.

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.

I skipped buying from Home Depot one time and went with some Nyjer seed from my local feed store and I was very disappointed in the feed store seed. It seemed to be to moist and the birds wouldn't eat it until a few weeks after it hung in the feeders. I will never buy from anyone other than Home Depot in the future. The Finches love HD seed and there is no reason to buy any where else.

Much less expensive than small bags and handier too. Price is right, no pun here, the seeds are clean and virtually dust free. I keep 4 thistle seed feeders for 'my' finches. They love it... some of 'my' white wing doves have self-taught themselves to use the feeders. It's a hoot to watch! Free shipping makes this purchase a win!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wagner's 50 lb. Nyjer seed wild bird food Good value for the price. About half the price of seed from the specialty wild bird store. The seed appears to be fresh and is attractive to the lesser goldfinches in our yard though a little dirtier than seed from the specialty store. There's a lot of seed, so it was perfect for sharing with my neighbor.
