|X1 Seed Saver Feeder
You can put oranges in it for orioles. No this is not an oriole, but bluebirds will feed from it on meal worms. Or just use it for seed. $40, not cheap for a hunk of plastic, but the X1 is versatile and worth it for year round use. The height of the top adjusts and the dish has drain holes. A popular, versitle feeder.

Make Your Own Oriole Nectar:* If you mix your own food the ratio is 1 part sugar to 4 parts water, do not use any coloring. Food coloring may be harmful to the birds. * Wash feeder well and replace nectar every 3 or 4 days whether used by the birds or not - it will turn black and icky. This means you cannot put a new feeder out, waiting for the first orioles, and just leave it. * Just stick out half and orange until you are sure your orioles are back and then put out nectar. * If using jelly, just put out a little at a time, too much may get on the birds. * Never use honey.
