I put out slices of oranges in addition to the grape jelly, but they definitely prefer the jelly. I seem to recall having substituted strawberry jelly for the grape one time, but they weren't very enthusiastic about it.


We also get a fair number of orchard orioles here too. Instead of the bright orange, they have a brownish orange color, more like a robin's breast, but darker.


Cat birds like the jelly feeders also.

I bought grape jelly this morning. I myself prefer strawberry over grape, but I picked their favorite flavor so now they will have to eat it all. Will fill up the clementine rinds with grape jelly.
