- All About
Finches are seed-eating songbirds, most of whom are native to the northern hemisphere. The largest finch is the evening grosbeak, weighing a little over 3 oz on average. The smallest is the lesser goldfinch, which weighs 0.2 oz, and is considered a close cousin to the American Goldfinch. Learn about several finch species at our Bird Library, including the grosbeak, American Goldfinch, purple finch, pine siskin and house finch.
Wild Bird Feeders - FAQs
Q: What do Goldfinches eat?
A: According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the American Goldfinch is one of the strictest vegetarian species of bird. They eat seeds almost exclusively, only occasionally eating a bug by mistake. At feeders, they are big fans of niger seed, which is sometimes sold as Nyjer or thistle. They also like sunflower seeds.
Q: How do Goldfinches eat?
A: Unlike many birds that enjoy thistle seed, American Goldfinches have no problem extracting food and eating it while upside down. That’s why this feeder is designed with port plugs that can be switched so birds eat above or below the perch. If you want to only attract goldfinches to this feeder, just rotate the patent-pending port plugs into the upside-down feeding position!
Q: Why would only Goldfinches eat from this feeder?
A: When the Perky-Pet® All-in-One Finch Feeder is converted to “goldfinch” mode, no other thistle eaters understand how to access the port. Goldfinches have the unique ability to hang upside down while eating thistle.All other thistle eaters aren’t comfortable eating upside down.
Q: Why are the holes so tiny?
A: The Perky-Pet® All-in-One Finch Feeder is a thistle feeder. Since thistle is such a small seed, the holes need to be small. Don’t worry, the birds will be able to get what they need!
Q: I haven't seen any birds visit this feeder yet. What should I do?
A: Most importantly, give the birds time to discover the feeder and feel comfortable with it. You also might want to start using the feeder in the “normal” feeding position for all birds. Once you have regular visitors to the feeder, you can switch it to the goldfinch-exclusive setting.
