Oriole feeders are designed to accommodate the oriole's unique palate. Oriole feeders differ from most feeders because they are equipped to offer nectar, orange slices, mealworms, jelly, or any combination of these sweet oriole treats.
Orioles are often recognized by their bright exuberant colors, so it is to be expected that they are most attracted to feeders with bright hues.
Like hummingbirds, orioles are attracted to flowers such as honeysuckles and petunias and will be drawn to any natural food source in your garden, including a variety of berry bushes. When attracting orioles and/or hummingbirds into your gardens be sure not too spray any pesticides on these flowers because it can be very harmful to the birds. The insects and pesky bugs we try to spray off are a good source of protein for these wild birds.
In the eastern United States, orioles are present most during the months of April and May. In the west, March and April are peak months for sightings. Starting to prepare for orioles earlier on in these months will ensure that you attract these birds at just the right time. The sugar in fruit, nectar and the popular oriole favorite, grape jelly, provides necessary energy for these little fliers as they migrate and nest. It is also beneficial to provide a water source for orioles, considering a birdbath can be a wonderful addition to your backyard and be beneficial to our colorful friends.
When shopping for a nectar feeder, keep in mind that oriole feeders are equipped with larger feeding ports than similarly styled hummingbird feeders, as orioles and their beaks are significantly larger in size.
Clean your feeder once a week and refill the nectar or jelly to maintain freshness. Increase this habit to 2-3 times a week in very warm weather.
