Orioles

Oh! Things to Know About Orioles

This has been a banner year for Orioles. We are very happy to hear of the number of sightings. Thanks for sharing!

One of North America’s most popular fruit-eating birds is the Oriole and we can help you attract them to your yard if they are in your area.

Orioles are known to enjoy orange slices, grape jelly and mealworms offered from tray-style feeders. Nectar feeders can also be used. You can use the same recipe as for Hummingbirds (4 to 1 ratio). Remember to keep your feeder clean and the food fresh, replacing every few days. The feeder shown in the picture is a three-way feeder, allowing you to feed oranges, nectar and jelly. Please do not use store bought jelly that contains preservatives and corn syrup. We have feeders and jelly in stock.

Oriole Fun Facts

  • When not feeding on nectar, orioles seek out caterpillars, fruits, insects, and spiders.
  • The Oriole nest is an engineering masterpiece. They weave a hanging-basket nest with plant fibers, grasses, vine and tree bark and sometimes string or yarn placed out on the small twigs of a branch 6-45 feet in the air. This keeps them safe from most predators.
  • The Baltimore Oriole is a common inhabitant of suburban landscapes due to is preference for open settings that are bordered with mature trees.
  • Orioles are a member of Icteridae family, meaning that their closest bird relatives include meadowlarks, blackbirds, bobolinks and grackles.
  • The oriole gets its name from the Latin aureolus, which means golden.
