Still cold and rainy — 2 Comments

  1. Carol,

    We did get an oriole! And he did eat homemade jelly! Our of two different feeders. They’re just starting to show up in our neck of the woods so I’m hoping our male brings a lady friend to set up housekeeping for the summer!

  2. I am sure you have been told by others by now——I have found to get orioles to come to feeders is to put grape jelly or jam out. Problem is that it has to be store bought. They won’t eat homemade jam. They usually come quickly . May not get them this year if they have their nests made. Good luck
    I sure do enjoy your blogs and articles in Backwood Homw. I agree with everything you say. We live in southeast Minnesota, not far from Rochester.
