here. Since I moved to this wooded area they are numerous. We sometimes have two or more on the feeder at the same time. Yesterday I watched a mama Oriole feeder her youngster a piece of orange. I never knew before a few weeks ago that Orioles like all kinds of fruit. I found this recipe for Oriole fruit salad. I can't wait to try it, but I think I'll cut it in half. In this heat I won't want to put out too much at a time.
If you give it a try, let me know your results. I'll be interested to hear how it works for you.

Heat the jelly in the microwave for 30 sec. to 1 min. until thin.
Stir the jelly then pour over fruit. Mix until the fruit is well coated.

Refrigerate the remainder in a container and use within a few days.
