The Niger seeds are a bit of a pest to handle as they are so small and fine; the feeder seems to generate a static charge as you fill it and the seeds all try to fly out.

It is well worth it however as it does attract in the Goldfinches.  They are not very regular visitors, but they are rather spectacular when they do decide to drop in.

A note to the finches: don't eat too much food though or I will have to fill the feeder again ....
