Yellow Spiral Finch (Nyjer/Thistle) Tube Feeder - 17 inch


Consumers and birds LOVE patented Songbird Essentials BirdQuest Spiral Feeders! More ports means more birds. Birds love to "Run The Spiral" instead of flying to another perch. This feeder not only lloks great in your yard, it is also well made and affordable. 

- Lifetime warranty on workmanship and normal wear and tear.

- Aluminum and stainless steel parts.

- Squirrel-resistant with patented locking lid--just twist and lock.  For best results, use a baffle or guard with this feeder, as desperate squirrels can and will chew through the plastic tube.

- Easy to clean: twist and clean (patent pending) bottom comes completely off for easy cleaning. This allows you to fill the top one time and the bottom the next. This means seed never gets old or moldy.

- Easy to hang: looped wire hanging cable included (150 lb. test) and attached. Holds cap, so you don't have to wonder where you put it.

- 2.5 Quart capacity (1.5 pounds).

-Tray sold separately.

- Use the SESQ83 12 inch Hanging Baffle to help protect your seed and feeder from squirrels and weather.

Spiral Finch tube feeder

Installed our feeder first thing in the morning the day after we purchased it. Within minutes, we had several Finches feeding. They love it, and it is very easy to refill.


Yellow Spiral Finch (Nyjer/Thistle) Tube Feeder - 17 inch

Best finch feeder

Finches love this feeder and this is the third one I have ordered. You need to watch for squirrels as the can chew larger holes in the feeder.


It is just as ordered. Thank you.


No air can get to the bottom and the seed starts to mold

Thank you for your feedback! In case you haven't tried these yet, here are some suggestions that will help the nyjer seed stay fresh and avoid mold:
1) Be sure you are taking advantage of the bottom filling feature. Turn the feeder upside down, remove the bottom cap, and pour new seed in, so the oldest seed ends up on top and is consumed first. Discard any seed that has become moldy before refilling, clean the feeder, and make sure the drains in the clear bottom tray of the bottom cap are unplugged, so the feeder drains properly.
2) Be sure your feeder is located such that it doesn't get hit by your or a neighbor's sprinkler systems.
3) Try using a natural seed and feeder protector to help keep seed dry and avoid caking and mold. See this Feeder Fresh product for more info:
4) If you live in an area that receives a lot of rain and/or the air is very humid, consider purchasing a weather guard/squirrel baffle to minimize the amount of rain water that reaches the feeder. We sell several clear plastic and metal versions, if that helps.
5) Something of a pain, but if you know a big storm is coming, pull your feeders inside until the weather clears--it's the surest way to keep seed dry and know it won't spoil.
Hope this helps!
