BACKYARD WILDLIFE ENTHUSIAST SHARES BALTIMORE ORIOLE FEEDING TIPS

         After posting the blog entitled Baltimore Oriole Sightings, I received an email from a backyard wildlife enthusiast that  lives in the southeast Alabama community of Ozark.

       According to the author of the email she has enjoyed having one oriole visit her hummingbird feeder for the past four years. This year the male oriole appeared accompanied by a female.

       In hope of enticing both birds to stay, she purchased an oriole feeder.  She has stocked the feeder with nectar, and halves of satsumas.  The food offerings apparently did the trick as she has been with being able to enjoy watching the birds ever since.

       A few days ago she offered the birds some red grapes and watched as the hungry birds quickly devoured them.

       She went on to say she also offered the birds store-bought tangerines and found the Baltimore orioles did not like them as much as the satsumas and grapes.

  1. Grape Jelly seems to be the food of choice here in Valdosta to have Oriole visits Terry.. Brad Bergstrom in particular has enjoyed multiple Orioles every winter using jelly.
