PLAINFIELD, CT – July 1, 2013

Droll Yankees’® Onyx Clever Clean® bird feeders, known for their removable bases and contemporary lines, have a new model featuring patented Magnet Mesh that is more attractive to finches.

Finches are flocking birds that will feed together in harmony. When greater access to the seed is provided, more birds visit the feeder.
Droll Yankees’ new Onyx Clever Clean® Finch Magnet features a mesh feed tube with 50 openings per square inch to dispense Nyjer® seed and Nyjer mixes. The diamond-shaped openings of the patented mesh align with the direction of the seed in the feeder. The benefit of this alignment became clear when Dr. Aelred Geis’s controlled studies showed that the use of this mesh resulted in 68 percent more bird visits when compared to screen-type nyjer feeders.

From 2005 to 2008, the Wild Bird Feeding Industry conducted a study that asked consumers what could make the bird feeding experience better. “Attracting more birds” to bird feeders ranked second, at 42 percent, and the Finch Magnet satisfies this desire. (Attracting more species of birds came in first at 69 percent of respondents.)

With 50 openings per square inch, the 18″ Finch Magnet has over 1800 access points when the feeder is full. More access, more finches! The finches easily cling to the mesh without the need for perch rods.

The new Finch Magnet comes in two sizes; the 12” version (CC12FM) holds one pound of Nyjer or a nyjer mix. For greater capacity and more birds, the 18” model (CC18FM) holds almost 2 pounds of seed.

Droll Yankees’ Onyx Clever Clean line of bird feeders derive their name from the “twist and release” feeder base that allows for the removal of any chaff, debris, or clogged seed ports quickly and easily before each refill of the feeder. Also, by removing the base, feeder tubes can be accessed from either the bottom up – or the top down – allowing for a simple scrubbing with a Bird Feeder Brush (BFB).

To attract even more finches, Clever Clean Seed Trays (CCT, CCT-S) can be attached to the base of any Onyx feeder to catch dropped seed. The trays conveniently stay attached when the base is removed for cleaning. Look for Onyx Clever Clean products at your local retailer, call Droll Yankees at 1-800-352-9164, or shop online.
