Black-throated Finches mainly feed on the seeds of native grasses and some introduced grasses e.g Sabi Grass - Urochloa mosambicansus, Red Natal Grass - Melinus repens. They consume yearly and perennial grass seeds.
Seeds are collected from the ground and directly from the plant as well. As the season progresses, the birds add different species of grass to their diet. Black-throated Finches need a continuous supply of seeds throughout the year.
