Baltimore orioles are beautiful black and orange songbirds that can be attracted to feeders by giving them two of their favorite treats, grape jam and orange halves.

Sugar solutions may also be used, although we haven’t had much success with sugar water. Grape jam is their favorite treat.

There are dozens of oriole feeders available on the market. Some for sugar solutions, others for orange halves or for jam, some for all three. We purchased ours on Amazon.
