Oriole At The Feeder

This is a Female Bullocks Oriole. The Orioles love to feast on Hummingbird food. They especially love this big orange Oriole feeder(-:

That is a GREAT oriole feeder Cindee. I want to find a new one this summer since one of the perches broke off my old one. I wonder if they are attracted to the orange (thinking it's an orange?)

I've never seen one of these birds. Really pretty. I like the feeder too. Do the hummers feed on it as well?

That is such a cool feeder. I'm curious, do they drink sugar water like the hummingbirds do?

I think the Orioles are attracked to the orange because it looks like an orange to them. They will supposedly also eat oranges cut in half.(-:

Hi Meadowview Thymes,
Yes the hummingbirds also drink from it as well(-:

Hi Robin,
Yes Orioles drink the same water as the hummingbirds do. They can share the feeder that way(-:

I've never seen an Oriole in my yard, maybe I need a feeder to attract them. Yours is cute! :)

Cindee that is a great shot and wow ! on that feeder : )
I was just going to say that Linda (Crafty Gardener) had an Oriole at her humming bird feeder .. the pictures were quite funny.
I have to think of a way to get them over here some day ? : )

Great pics Cindee. Love that it has one foot holding on to the rope or whatever it is. That's so cute!
