I've taken up a big interest lately enjoying the local wildlife and more importantly helping support there survival. I have been experimenting with different types of food and seeing which birds come in and feast, snack or pop in.
I think Gold finches are beautiful, so vibrant and full of beautiful colours and make fab little noises.
If you want to attract these into your garden, I would high recommend our Johnston & Jeff Niger seeds - We sell these in large bags 12.75kg or 1kg bags. If your starting out and are also limited on space the 1kg bag is ideal for you!
By introducing Niger seed, within a few short hours I now have 6 regular gold finches on my feeder.
I like to say they are the wee bullies of the small wild birds - well mine definitely are, they sit on the feeder stuffing themselves until they can not eat any more while their pals wait by for there shot!
Its like a bunch of kids sometimes squabbling for their shot haha it makes me giggle.
