Recipe for Oriole Nectar

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

Much like hummingbirds, orioles are very fond of nectar. Here's a recipe for some simple oriole nectar.

Mix 1 cup of sugar into 6 cups of water. Bring to a boil for 10 minutes, and then allow to fully cool. Pour mixture into an oriole feeder, and store any unused portion in the fridge until used. Be sure to change the feeder frequently, as old nectar can be harmful to the birds.

Orioles also LOVE fresh fruit. Oranges seem to be their favorites. Nail a nail into a tree. Slice an orange in half. Jam the peel-part of the orange up against the nail so the soft inside is facing out, and easy for the oriole to eat.

Orioles will also eat suet, as shown above. Their main diet is caterpillars, insects and bugs.
