Wild Birds Unlimited has the best Oriole feeders

Baltimore Orioles arrive at their mid-Michigan breeding grounds near the end of April. They are orange and black birds that enjoy a variety of foods. At the feeders they enjoy suet, nuts, mealworms, nectar, grape jelly, or fruit (oranges, grapes, apples).

Wild Birds Unlimited has lots of oriole feeders: 

WBU Oriole 3-in-1 Feeder 
My favorite is the unique saucer shaped feeder that offers three ways to attract orioles with nectar, oranges, and jelly. 

Recycled Oriole Feeder 
The second most popular feeder is the Poly-lumber feeder made from recycled milk jugs. It has lifetime guarantee to never crack, split or fade, stainless steel screws, thick, heavy-duty acrylic roof to allow Orioles to see the food and protects it from rain, and two   removable cups to hold grape jelly (Orioles’ favorite jelly flavor) and two pegs for orange halves. The cups also may be used to feed mealworms, peanuts, chopped fruit, suet nuggets, and a variety of other foods. 
Spiral Three Cup Feeder 
This is a versatile three-cup feeder with a durable a powder coat finish. You can use the cups for orange halves, chopped fruit, nuts, mealworms, jelly and more. 
Brushed Copper Oriole Feeder 
With an umbrella to protect the food from the weather, this Brushed Copper Oriole Feeder has 2 jelly dishes, stake for 2 Orange halves. 

Ring Dish 
When looking for inexpensive but unique dish feeder, keep this ring design in mind. Versatile enough to fill with an orange, mealworms, jelly, and so much more, this piece fits anywhere and is sure to please the eye. But why just have one dish. You can hook two feeders together or three or as many as you want to build the feeding station that fits your needs!

It's SO good - You'll want to have "Breakfast with the birds!" 
BirdBerry Jelly is a human grade product that emphasizes quality. This is an all natural product with no preservatives. BirdBerry Jelly has no sweeteners and has low sugar levels which is better for birds. The unique grape & blackberry flavor attracts orioles and other birds and keeps them wanting this product "with its unique flavor".

Durable and functional 20.5 ounce squeezable jar makes refilling feeders fast and easy with no mess or waste!

Made in the USABirdBerry is made of grape juice, concorde grapes, blackberries and pure all natural granular sugar. Compare to normal grocery store labels and you'll see that BirdBerry is higher in quality - that's better for the birds. Made in the USA.

We have lived in our home in a suburb of Grand Rapids for over twenty years. This is the first time that we haven't had orioles by early May. Are they late this year?

Mine were a week late too. Keep your feeder clean and the food fresh and they will arrive on their schedule. They are worth the wait!

Saw our first one today! May 3rd in Portage, MI. I just put the feeder out. Do all of the stores carry the feeder pictured above with the orange umbrella? I have the base like that. Can you get the umbrellas separate?
