Attract twice the amount of finches with Droll Yankees Onyx Clever Clean® 12″ Nyjer® Seed Finch Magnet. It’s the world’s cleanest feeder with twist-and-release removable base technology and rust-resistant powder-coated metal tube.

  • Twist and release base ensures easy cleaning, every time
  • Rust-proof, heavy-duty steel mesh tube is powder-coated in black, creating a sleek silhouette and high contrast for bright yellow finches
  • Patented “magnet mesh” design is proven to attract up to double the number of birds than any other mesh on the market; diamond-shaped openings fit birds’ beaks better than traditional screen mesh
  • Hang or pole-mount
  • Attach an Onyx Clever Clean Tray to catch spilled seed: ingenious tray design allows the tray to remain on the base of the feeder when removing it for cleaning
  • Lifetime Warranty against squirrel damage
  • Made in the U.S.A.


Droll Yankees
For years I had several wire mesh feeders that rusted out and wasted a lot of expensive Nyjer seed. I sent an inquiry to Droll Yankees' Customer Service about the Ring Pull and Onyx Clever Clean Nyjer Feeders. I went with the 18" Onyx Clever Clean. I am extremely pleased with the build quality and the ease of cleaning. This past rainy season I enjoyed dry seeds which attracted more birds than in years past. I highly recommend the Onyx Clever Clean.

Please! For the sake of the birds, keep your feeder clean! Dirty feeders spread disease. Soak all parts in a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water. Use a Droll Yankees Bird Feeder Brush to brush away grime inside the tube.

Birds that use this feeder: Purple Finches, Redpolls, Goldfinches, Chickadees, Juncos, White Throated Sparrows, and more!

    I am not sure why this has one star. It did take a couple of weeks for the birds to warm up to the change, but I really love this feeder. It is constructed very solid, it looks nice hanging in our yard. I have so many finches (I finally have my first Gold Finch!!!) and little birds who love this feeder

    Feeder is hung among other feeders holding black oil seed. Finches will not go to this feeder. Even took moved other feeders away for a week. The finches disappeared until I brought back the black oil feeders and they still won’t feed off of this one!

      Hello William,
      Thank you for contacting Droll Yankees. We are very sorry that you are not seeing birds on your new feeder. Birds are creatures of habit, and it can take them days or even weeks to use a new feeder. There is something new in the yard that they are not used to, and they need to warm up to it first.

      Temporarily placing the feeder near a shrub or tree where birds will feel safe can also encourage them to explore the new feeder. Adding something like a colorful ribbon can also help, as the movement in the wind can make the birds feel like another bird has found the feeder to be safe. We would suggest temporarily removing other feeders in the area so that the birds must use the new one. Oddly enough, filling the feeder half-full seems to help attract the birds to the new feeder.

      We hope that the birds begin to use the feeder soon, and please keep us updated! If you have any additional questions or concerns, please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-352-9164 and any one of our Customer Service Reps will be happy to assist you. Our hours are 7 am – 4:30 pm Mon-Fri (EST).
