Rated 5 out of 5 by Grantina Freshest Nyjer Thistle; Goldfinches swarm like bees
When I opened the bags of Drs. Foster and Smith Nyjer Thistle seed for my Goldfinches, I couldn't believe how delicious it smelled. The seed is shiny and pure black, pours freely from the bag, not sticky, dusty or brownish like other inferior brands. Almost good enough to eat! My Goldfinches thought so too. They swarmed the three 'socks' I keep hanging in a nearby tree as if they were bees. The tree actually looked like a lemon tree as other male finches waited their turns to eat the delicious Nyjer thistle seed. Drs. Foster and Smith have the freshest seed by far.

Perfect for the finch varieties at my feeders. A little messy so I put a hoop feeder below it and it catches the leftover mess for easy clean up.

My wife bought a timer release bird feeder a few years ago and we've been using this thistle seed purchased from Drs Doster & Smith ever since. There is an absolute minimum of extraneous matter in the seed so the feeder has never been clogged. We get an array of gold finches, house finches and doves twice a day, whenever the seed dispenser drops its seed. The birds have figured out the schedule, congregate and hang out until it's meal time!
