Why Choose a Niger Seed Bird Feeder?
Niger seed, a favourite among goldfinches, is a fantastic choice for bird feeders. High in oil, it provides essential energy and nutrients for these beautiful birds, while the small size of the seed means less waste and mess in your garden.
Keeping pests away
Due to the small size and high oil content, niger seeds do not appeal to squirrels as much. Therefore, using a niger seed bird feeder can help deter squirrels from raiding your bird feed, leaving more for the birds you're aiming to attract. Additionally, many niger seed feeders are designed with small feeding ports, for example our clinger niger seed feeder, that are perfectly suited for small birds like finches but are difficult for larger creatures like squirrels, doves or rats to access.
Our Range of Niger Seed Feeders
Our range of feeders includes classic tube designs, ideal for hanging from a tree or a bird table, and models with trays to catch any loose seeds. Designed to be sturdy, practical, and easy to clean, our niger seed feeders cater to the feeding habits of goldfinches while withstanding the elements.
