Oranges and Wild Birds


Many wild birds LOVE oranges! Especially orioles.  The Oriole is the most popular bird you will find feeding from your oranges.  Other birds that also enjoy oranges are cardinals, cedar waxwings, tanagers, finches and woodpeckers.  Oranges are easy to feed to your neighborhood birds, just nail a halved orange, or orange peels to a tree or fence post in your yard.  You can reuse the nail for the next orange you feed. Just push the new orange peel onto the used nail.

When peeling oranges, use a knife which leaves some orange fruit on the peels, which I then nail outside for the wild birds to devour.
