Flightline Jr. Oriole Feeder 9.5" dia x 8" high
It has brought Baltimore Oriole's as well as Hummingbirds to my feeder in January! I am very impressed! Today it has been very busy as Charleston, SC had snow and ice that has stuck to the ground! The birds are Happy, Happy, Happy!

I recently placed 2 of these to replace my worn out ones. I wanted a larger resevoir, due to the fact I have FLOCKS of Orioles. At last count, this year alone I have 23 fledglings and I can't begin to count how many ASY 1s, and 2s, plus a multitude of mature adults. I can easily go through 3 nectar refills, 1/4 of a bushel of oranges, plus 1/2 jar of jelly a day. So it was obvious I needed nectar feeders with large resevoirs. Two major flaws to this possible perfect feeder. 1) the bee guard is a joke--birds can't seem to get around it. 2) Perches are way to close to the the nectar holes. I have watched my birds contort themselves trying to use the perch and eat. They eventually give up and go back to the oranges and jelly. I haven't had to refill these feeders once since I put them up (they have been up a week--I have cleaned the feeder and replaced the nectar)but the nectar level never goes down. I have removed the bee guards, so we will see if they can overcome the perch problem. BOTTOM LINE: DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.
