Feed the Birds: Fruit Feeder and Jelly

There are many birdies that like fruit . . . and not just smoothies! To offer up this treat in your backyard choose a feeder with spikes for actual fruit, trays for jelly and, if you're brave with the squirmies, a spot for mealworms. I like this feeder ($24.95) because once again you can see feathered friends from any treeless home — all you need is a window!

To find out which fruit to use – and who will come to dinner – when you

.

Simply cut or halve apples, oranges, peaches, nectarines, grapefruit, or melons and add to the copper spikes and fill the little dishes with grape jelly as a special treat rather than a diet staple as it's richer in sugars than natural fruit. The backyard dwellers looking for a sweet snack include:

  • Orioles
  • Tanagers
  • Mockingbirds
  • Bluebirds
  • Thrashers
  • Cardinals
  • Woodpeckers
  • Jays
  • Starlings
  • Thrushes
  • Cedar waxwings
  • Yellow-breasted chats

My kitties love bird-watching. And I'd love to get some Orioles around the house. :)
