*Please note that due to its size, it is not possible to ship this item. Online orders containing this item must be picked up at the centre. 

Nyjer, also known as thistle, is a small black seed enjoyed by goldfinches, siskins and redpolls. This seed requires the use of a nyjer-specific feeder. Please note nyjer spoils quickly; it is better to purchase smaller quantities often to ensure seed freshness. Also note that nyjer is not a true thistle and will not grow if spilled on the ground.

Food safety

To prevent food poisoning in birds please remember to:
- Store seeds in a dry cool location such as a garage or a basement. Do not store seeds outside.
- Do not use seeds that are too old. Depending on the seeds, shelf life varies from a few months to a year.
- Do not leave seeds in a feeder for more than 2 weeks.
- Toss seeds that are wet, spoiled or moldy.
