SHAFER SEED:  Nyjer Seed

(roll over for larger image)

The favorite seed of Goldfinches everywhere.


Nyjer seed (Thistle seed) is the absolute favorite of Finches, such as the American Goldfinch, Purple Finch, Pine Siskin and other small Songbirds.

This tiny delicacy is used in Finch feeders which have smaller holes and tiny perches – perfect for the Finches but discouraging to larger birds!

Shafer Seed's Nyjer seed is the ultimate choice for nurturing Finches with its high fat and protein content.

Nyjer seed is the only major Wild Bird Food ingredient imported from overseas -- sometimes referred to as “Black Gold”.

Nyjer seed may seem more expensive, yet it actually lasts longer.

Nyjer contains an incredible 150,000 seeds per pound, which produces more visits to your feeder.

Fill your Finch feeder with Shafer Seed Nyjer seed and enjoy the antics of these beautiful and sociable birds in your backyard.
