    What type of seed(s) do you have in the feeder? What type of finches are they?

    If they are goldfinches they like Nyger seed. (Sunflower seed that is hulled.)

    If they are Purple or House Finches, they like to eat sunflower and millet seeds.

      The Examiner-1 says instead of sunflower seed I meant to say the Goldfinches like thistle seed.
