Product Description

Product Description

The Oriole's appearance was a brillant flash against the landscape¿..and what way to attract them to your garden than with our 32 ounce oriole feeder. It's exclusive two-position perch adjusts to feed all varieties of orioles.It's patented bee guard lets bird feed, keeps birds out.Four feeding stations allows for fine dining. It comples complete with a free oriole identification chart

Amazon.com

While plants, flowers, and insects naturally provide food for our feathered friends, a well-stocked oriole feeder encourages more frequent visits. Opus’s egg-shaped feeder holds 32 ounces and provides four feeding stations, to allow as many orioles to dine as possible. Adjustable perches offer two different perch heights to accommodate all nine species of orioles. A patented bee guard keeps pests out and secures food. A convenient hanging hole permits owners to hang the feeder by a special stand or on tree branches.

Opus even includes an oriole identification chart to inform bird enthusiasts. To attract orioles to the feeder, place it in a sheltered southeast location in the yard or garden. Orioles also enjoy dining on fresh oranges and grape or apple jelly. Keep the feeder stocked year-round to nourish any birds that linger through a cold winter, and help tired birds rebuild strength after the long flight north in spring. To deter pesky squirrels, hang the oriole feeder from tree branches as far from the trunk as possible and at least four feet above the ground. For best results, handwash the feeder with equal parts water and white vinegar--this will help protect birds from bacteria and disease. Avoid chemical cleaners that might poison birds. When shipped, this item weighs two pounds. --Jessica Reuling

Easy to clean.

I had removed the bee guards from a hummingbird feeder and the hooded orioles were using it fine.

NOT easy to clean out at all.

Orioles readily take nectar from my 8 oz. Perky-Pet Four Fountains hummingbird feeders, and can quickly empty them. Buying larger hummingbird feeders was not entirely satisfactory since all have feeding ports which exclude non-hummers. I got this Opus oriole feeder so the orioles would have their own large capacity feeder.

My feeder has springy buttons in the nectar ports which act as bee guards. (Note: The image on this page differs slightly from the feeder I received.) Initially the orioles and hummers explored the feeder but were unable to figure out the bee guards. After a few days I removed the bee guards, which involved undoing a few screws, and thereafter both orioles and hummers used the feeder.

The feeder disassembles into three parts: the clear plastic reservoir bottle and the two parts of the orange base. The bottom of the base houses the adjustable perches. If you submerge your feeder to clean it, this part will require some shaking and draining, but this is a minor matter. All parts of the base which touch the nectar are readily accessible for cleaning.

This is a good feeder for those crunch times when a lot of nectar is being consumed, but the orioles really prefer the Perky-Pets. Finally, _I_ really prefer a glass reservoir and just couldn't give five stars to a feeder without one.

We are glad that the orioles are now able to have their own feeder, which they only sometimes have to share with the hummingbirds. We appreciate the time you have taken to share your experience as well as your comments regarding the construction of the feeder.

Please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions. We are available Monday through Saturday to offer assistance with this or any of our other feeders.

This feeder works fine, however, it is the most difficult thing to clean I've ever had! First of all the container is a really awkward shape. It does not fit in your hand very well due to it's wide girth. An old soda bottle would be easier to handle! Secondly, it has a very small mouth which makes it difficult to insert a bottle brush. Then on the inside there are small plastic squiggles that hold the nectar dispensing buttons on which are also difficult to clean. The other problem is emptying the bottle. It's flattened at the bottom and even with vigorous shaking you can never completely empty it.If they were to change the shape of the bottle (make it smaller in girth and widen the mouth) It could be a great product!

Unpacked it, filled it and hung it up. Had Orioles right away. This unit was a replacement for a another brand that allowed the Humming Birds to feed as well as the Orioles. The Hummers were confused and unable to feed from this one because of the bee guards. We disassembled the unit and removed the bee guards (bees aren't a significant problem in our area). Now everybody feeds!

Nice unit. I would recommend it.

We tried another brand of oriole feeder two summers ago and had to get rid of it because of the problem it created with the local bees: some crawled into the feeding holes and drowned, others created a swarm around the feeder, and the rest decided they owned the patio and chased us indoors. The spring-loaded bee guards on this model keep the bees at bay--in fact, they don't even try to get into it--and the orioles have had absolutely no trouble pushing past the guards to get their drink. I did notice a slow-drip leak after a few days, but fixed that easily by making sure that the two parts of the orange (bottom) portion of the feeder are screwed together completely. Other reviewers have written that they'd prefer a glass upper canister instead of plastic, but be careful what you wish for. One heavy-footed oriole landed so hard on this feeder that she knocked it off its mounting hook; the feeder fell 6 feet and landed on the concrete patio without breaking. All things considered, I'm delighted with this design and plan to buy a spare before someone changes it.

I purchased this item based on its claim of the patented bee guards keeping bees out. First off it does not look like the picture, the drinking holes are round and have a small button inside that the orioles will push down to feed. Unfortunately, the bees learned within about an hour how to push the button down. They then go in to drink, can't get back out and die. The entire bottom of the feeder was full of bees within 24 hours of hanging the feeder. Does not work as intended. And is definitely not the same product shown.

The oriole's didn't like this, but it didn't last more than a week until the sun beating on it warped where the bottom connected to the middle section & then it leaked. I should have returned it, but instead tossed it. Very disappointing. May have been OK in the shade, but the birds didn't care for it anyway. They liked the hummingbird feeder.

I've had this out for a couple of weeks now and it seems to be working fine. Seems to be well made and has not leaked. The orioles went to it within a couple of days. The picture looks like the feeding stations are made of rubber or something, but the one I received is hard plastic with the little plastic balls to keep bees out. The orioles just push the ball through to get the nectar. I added a couple of pictures of orioles feeding.

I purchased one of these a year ago, when I noticed the Scott's Orioles trying to eat out of our hummingbird feeders. They were unsuccessful, as their beaks were too large. I found one of the Opus feeders online, and when it was installed in our yard, we had an Oriole invasion; both Scott's and Hooded Orioles congregated around it. One smart family even built a nest about 10' away from the feeder! It's easy to clean and fill, easy to assemble, and the birds love it. The only thing that might improve this feeder is if the reservoir was glass instead of plastic, but we're very happy with it.
