Bird lovers anxiously watch for the first Baltimore Orioles to return to the area in the spring and every day I am listening for their distinct song. Orioles are common at bird feeders but not any feeder will do. Orioles enjoy fruit and nectar so be sure to select a feeder that allows you to feed nectar, grape jelly, oranges or other fruit. Some feeders combine all three options like this one shown.
Choose colorful orange feeders made from recycled plastic, beautiful wood feeders or nectar feeders. Hang them now to have the best chance of attracting the birds. Birds & Blooms has a great article on how you can attract orioles if you are looking for more detailed information.
Select the perfect feeder for your yard and wait for the orioles to make the area near your yard their home for the summer!
