Goldfinch and Siskin Mix
Long-Tailed Tit, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Siskin
This is the ULTIMATE Goldfinch and Siskin magnet. Now with extra Calcium.
The ultimate mix to attract Goldfinches and Siskins to bird feeders. This is a very special blend of small oil-rich seeds enriched with natural calcium-rich seeds for healthier birds.
Goldfinches are now found in almost five times as many gardens as they were sixteen years ago (BTO Research 2012) which means there's a good chance of you seeing one of them in your garden if you put out the right bird food. To say they're in around 33% of UK gardens (RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, 2012 Results) they're ranked seventh in average bird count per garden, which is easily explained as they are gregarious and feed happily together and often in large numbers of Goldfinches. We experimented over ten years ago placing our Goldfinch Mix alongside Niger Seed in trials and it became clear (quite quickly) that Goldfinches and Siskins enjoy variety in their seed diet too. This year we've improved the diet further and have introduced dried Sesame Seed to provide useful calcium which can be lacking in birds' diets.
"Have bought seeds from Haiths for years now and have always been delighted with quality and service. Simply 1st Class"
"Good quality and the the birds loved it. I used it in a niger seed feeder with no problems and a seed tray at the bottom prevented a lot of waste"
"This has to be the best seed ever for finches. I place it in a normal bird feeder, not a niger feeder, and it works really well. I think a niger feeder would not be as helpful to the birds seeing that some of the seeds are slightly larger than the holes in a niger feeder, and it may tend to get blocked whereas I've had no such problem with a regular seed feeder."
"This mix is brilliant for all types of little birds, goldfinches, sparrows, chaffinches, blue tits, great all round seed for them all"
"A great mixture for all the little birds, recommend it totally"
