It's said that the Orioles like grape jelly, and oranges.. and while I see them check those out, it is always the hummingbird feeder that they will go to first!
I have a few feeders out there, so that the Hummingbirds can get to one or the other if they are around.
I have pictures of the Hummingbird and the Ladderbacked Woodpecker perched together on the feeder,(an unbelievable site) the Verdin and the hummer, and the House Finch and the Hummer!
Occassionally they seem to peacefully share together. The Orioles however, wont tolerate any other bird or even other Orioles, with the exception of their own young at the feeders, while they are there!
Enjoy your bird watching this summer!! I hope this helps some of you! Cindy
Thanks a bunch for the photos Cindy. I'm sure it will help countless visitors figure out what Orioles are coming to their Hummingbird Feeders.
You're correct about the oranges and grape jelly. While I go through an orange a day and a quart of grape jelly a week. The hummingbird feeder is always empty. Thanks again,
