Feeding Birds Fruit Attracts a Variety of Birds

feeding birds fruit with an Oriole feederFeeding birds fruit is a good alternative for attracting birds that don't visit seed feeders.

Fruit can be offered in hanging feeders, on platform feeders or in wire mesh fruit feeders.

Try orange slices, diced fresh fruit such as apples, melons and grapes; or even dried fruit, such as raisins or currants.

View our Oriole Feeder page for feeding orange slices, nectar and grape jelly to orioles and other birds such as catbirds and mockingbirds.
