I have not tried feeding oriole's but I have seen both oriole and gray
catbird at orange half feeder and oriole nectar feeder at my Aunts in
Rochester, VT. Both came more frequently to cut orange. The only thing I
noticed, maybe because I was trying to photo, is she had located feeder in
heavy coverage. ( Lilac brush I think) It had leafed out and was secluded
from a distance. Maybe they are shy diners! Keep trying, it does work.
