Do finches need yellow on a bird feeder to eat from it?
By anngirl249 from deale, md
No, just fill the feeder with niger (thistle) seed and once the finches find it, you'll have a feeder full of goldfinches, house finches and purple finches. Make sure that you use either a thistle sock feeder or the thistle ports in your regular feeder. Otherwise far too much seed gets wasted. Good luck and enjoy the birds!!
Thank you so much.
No - birds can't recognize color. In addition to the thistle mentioned by readingiggits, they will also eat black sunflower seeds. That's all I buy because it isn't wasted as much as thistle is, and I have loads of different types of finches dine at my house regularly! Enjoy your birds and God bless you.
I buy hulled sunflower seeds and there is no waste, no leftover hulls to clean up. ALL the birds LOVE them
