How to Attract Goldfinches
Goldfinches are found in most habitats across North America, including backyards. They are here in our area in the winter and early spring. To attract goldfinches to your yard, we recommend offering the right food and designated finch feeders or a designated finch-feeding station.
We recommend offering fresh Nyjer® (thistle) because it is goldfinches’ favorite feeder food. Nyjer has a high oil content and is an excellent energy source for these active birds.
1. WBU Quick-Clean™ Finch Feeders accommodate goldfinches’ small bills and allow them to easily dine on Nyjer. These feeders’ removable bases make cleaning a breeze. They are easy to fill and hang, deter squirrels and come with a lifetime guarantee.
2. Simply add our Weather Guard dome to your finch feeder to help keep seed dry and protect birds from inclement weather.
3. Because they locate food by sight, provide goldfinches with their own feeding station in an open, easy-to-find area.
Create a goldfinch feeding station with our exclusive Advanced Pole System® (APS) Basic Setup Hanging Hardware. It’s easy to construct and maintain. Just plant it into the ground, add the extension poles and arms, and top it with the decorative finial. Then fill and hang your feeders.
Keep your Nyjer fresh and mold-free with Feeder Fresh™. Mix it with the seed in your feeders, and the absorbent granules will “drink up” excess moisture. Feeder Fresh is completely safe for you and your birds.
