Several years ago I put up the red plastic Oriole feeder and didn't have any takers even though I did have an Oriole or two passing through in migration.  A couple of weeks ago one came to my suet feeder for a flash of a second.  Yesterday, another appearance.  This bird went right to the suet location but I  had stopped putting it out for a few days because of the influx of black birds and Jays.  So off went the Oriole.Today I hear one singing near my property.  I would love to know what kind of feeder to use - how to put out oranges,  location of feeder, or any secret methods of attracting an Oriole.Maeve, your story left me yearning!!  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
