Keeping Orioles Away from Hummingbird Feeder

I have both hummingbirds (around 3) and Orioles hanging around my house this year. Yipee! I only had one hummer all last year. Unfortunately the Orioles are feeding out of the hummingbird feeders even though I have put out a big Oriole feeder for them.

How can I keep the Orioles out of the hummer feeders? They seem to land on them, then tip them sideways and all the sugar water flows out. I even moved the hummer feeder to a tree branch but they still land on it.

I just let them 'take turns,' which they do quite nicely. You can't control this issue. Sorry, but you'll just have to live with it. They don't seem to mind sharing.
