Keeping Your Sweet Offerings Fresh Has Never Been Easier than with the Oriole Jelly Feeder Did you know that like hummingbirds, orioles have a sweet tooth? They do! What better way to attract them than by offering their favorite sweet treat – jelly! Other jelly feeders on the market expose the jelly to the elements, causing it to mold and spoil quickly. The Perky-Pet® Oriole Jelly Feeder has an inverted jelly jar, ensuring that your jelly is kept fresh and covered. The 32 oz jar can also be interchanged with most standard jelly jars. The built-in stirrer allows the perfect amount of jelly to be dispensed into the tray. In addition, this feeder boasts a vibrant orange color to draw more orioles to your yard!

cicrular feeding tray and perch
Circular Feeding Tray and Perches Orioles love to perch while they feed. This jelly feeder features a large circular feeding tray with a wraparound perch so your orioles have plenty of room to feast! Orioles are known to be attracted to the color orange – the tray’s vibrant hue is sure to catch the eye of passing orioles and draw them to your yard.

Jelly Remains Fresh Inside the Inverted Jar Jelly that is exposed to the elements quickly spoils and molds, which is bad for your birds. To keep your offerings fresh and protected from the elements, this feeder holds all of the jelly inside the inverted weatherproof jar so it lasts longer. In addition, the included bottle can be swapped with most 32 oz jelly jars, so there’s no need to scoop jelly when refilling. Remember to clean your feeder every few days to ensure that your orioles are receiving the freshest jelly supply.

Never goes bad By Al

For those who worry about the jelly going bad.....just scoop out half the jar at a time. The feeder comes with its own jars. My jelly doesn’t last long. Many orioles’, robins, catbirds, woodpeckers, etc all enjoy. We bring it in every night because Raccoons will break it to lap all the jelly.

For Shame, Perky Pet By Irene

Do not buy this. Feeding jelly to birds is lethal to them in so many ways. Please please do not buy this product. Do your research, and really think about what this is doing. Go to any hummingbird and wildlife Facebook page for info, like Hummingbird Addict. The ingredients, the mold, the stickiness weighing down little one’s feathers. And shame on you, Perky Pet. Shame on you.

Bees, so far, but no orioles. By Mack

Interesting concept. It's been five or more years since I had [early] winter orioles stop by, so I added this to my arsenal. No southbound orioles this time.... maybe northbound ones in the spring. However, it attracts five or more bee-like insects (not honeybees or bumblebees) at a time; in fact some crawl into the jar, and can't get out. Same insects are attracted to everything else that I put jelly in, but not as many.... and, obviously, they don't get trapped.

the feeder is a 10 for me By Gail

I love this jelly feeder not just for the orioles but for all the other birds that use it. I have finches that use it, hummingbirds and also wood peckers. I will use it all year.

The design needs tweaking so it is sturdier... By cathief

The idea of this feeder is great. However, I have more squirrels around than Orioles and the first time a squirrel went onto it, the entire thing tipped within the hanging chains and there was jelly everywhere. I don't think that I can use it, but I recently read that too much jelly is not good for the birds anyway.

Best feeding invention EVER!!! By sheila

I LOVE THIS FEEDER! I just bought it and hung it. The oriole's are singing in the trees and I'm confident they will come up to the feeder soon. I usually have 10-12 oriole's each year and this feeder is so convenient with the jar upside down. I have four small bowls going all day long that I have to refill daily. This will be so much more convenient. I just ordered another!!

Q.Where can I buy the jelly feeder in Canada?

Typical Canadian retailers that carry our products include: Beaver Lumber, Canadian Tire, Home Hardware, Home Depot, Lowe's, and True Value. Please call the store first to see if the one near you carries this feeder or would be able to order it for you.

Q.Can anyone comment on bees overtaking the feeder. I am constantly fighting to get the bees off my jelly feeders. This one looks so amazing, but am curious about the bee situation. 

If bees are invading a feeder, we recommend temporarily removing the feeder for a few days. Then, rehang the feeder in a slightly different location.

Q.What do you do with the feeder if it rains, storms. Jelly is lost from tray?

We recommend hanging this jelly feeder in a sheltered area. It can also be brought inside if heavy rains are expected.
