No Nyjer For Me

I had a chat with a friend trying to lure goldfinches to her property, and she mentioned using nyjer seed---but was disappointed with uneven results.  Namely: the birds won't accept a refilled sock.  And I have been there.  Goldfinches are notoriously finicky with this seed and I've thrown too much of the pricey stuff out.  I suggested what I have done myself and that is to scrap the nyjer and offer only black oil sunflower seed.  The goldfinches love it and it holds up longer.  It may be fun to watch finches cling to the sock but it is too expensive a look!  No nyjer for me!
