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!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. Clean your feeder every few days to ensure that your orioles are receiving the freshest jelly supply.Built-in Jelly Stirrer Allows for Even Dispensing Jelly can be clumpy and sticky. Thanks to the built-in stirrer, this is no longer a problem. This simple device allows the perfect amount of jelly to be distributed into the tray every time. Simply turn the knob on the bottom of the tray to dispense more jelly.Includes a Hanging Chain for Easy Placement With the Perky-Pet® Oriole Jelly Feeder, you can have ultimate flexibility in placement thanks to the built-in hanging chain and hook. Hang it anywhere around your yard, patio or garden. In addition, the chain’s sturdy metal design provides the perfect balance to the tray so it won’t tip under an oriole’s weight.“I've bought many oriole feeders and by far this is the best one. No mess filling up cups, you just put the jar of jelly on and twist the bottom. So easy to use. I have recommended this feeder to all my friends.” (Review from Anonymous) Read More Reviews »Perky-Pet® Oriole Jelly Feeder Watch the Oriole Jelly Feeder in action and see for yourself how much backyard birds love it!Accessorize Your Oriole Feeder When you’re feeding many birds, having the right accessories can make the experience that much more enjoyable.

Review RateGREAT FEEDER!!!
I have one of your Oriole jelly feeders and love it. We have had it for 3-4 years and the Orioles love it too. I received another one for Christmas but when I took the jar off the stirrer was almost broken into off of the base. I would say that it was probably broken during assembly. Not a problem on my end. If you would please send me a stirrer assembly I can fix it myself. I will be looking forward to receiving your reply. Thank you very much. Have a good day. Sincerely, Douglas W. Brown
Review RateLooks like it will work well.
I won't be able to try this until next spring but it looks like it will work well. I will only put out a partial jar of jelly. Cleaning regularly will be easy. Will have to see if ants will be a problem.
Review RateJelly drips through holes
Why are there holes? I am surprised no one has mentioned them. Did I put this together wrong? They are small holes, I thought to drain water from rain, but when jelly is warmed by sun it spreads and drips through holes. I have had to tape them closed.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! This feeder includes drain holes in the tray to help prevent water from building up. The built-in stirrer allows the perfect amount of jelly to be dispensed into the tray. We recommend cleaning the feeder at least twice a week to keep the feeder inviting and the jelly fresh.

Review RateBetter feeding system for us
We live in South-East Michigan and enjoy the oriole feeder so much I am buying a 2nd one. What is the problem with feeding grape jelly to the birds.
Review RateNever goes bad
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.
Review RateFor Shame, Perky Pet
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.Response From Perky-Pet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateBees, so far, but no orioles.
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.
Review Ratethe feeder is a 10 for me
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.
Review RateThe design needs tweaking so it is sturdier...
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.Response From Perky-Pet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the feedback and are sorry to hear about this experience. Our feeders are covered by a 30 day return policy and a one year replacement warranty.

I am very pleased with this feeder. I placed it outside and within 15 minutes a male oriole was eating from it. Good design and easy to clean. Thanks!
