Success of feeding birds such as orioles seems to come when they are already present in the area. Mockingbirds seem to be very territorial. If you start feeding the mockingbirds, place the feeder away from existing feeders. It may take years to attract orioles if a customer is just starting to plant their yard with fruit trees and bushes. It is always fun to see what may be attracted to yards with fruit feeders. It is always worth the effort, especially if you are rewarded by seeing these birds up close.
