Love That Niger.

Recently there has been a string of letters in the newspapers, about how Goldfinches love Niger seeds. Once they are offered at a feeding site, they are quickly discovered and devoured, ( the seeds that is.)

We did our own test. Goldfinches to not usually visit our offerings, but once Niger seeds were available, it took a pair of Goldfinches only five days to find them.

In some of the reported cases, these birds took only hours to arrive. In any event, the theory is substantiated.
