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.

This works only if you want the hummers to leave. I have 6 pesky orioles that are a real menace. I have 4 hummer feeders. Orioles use them all .

Someone suggested getting a feeder without a place for the Orioles to sit on. Hummers can hover , so this seems logical.I am facing the same problem, so I am on the lookout for a perchless feeder for the hummingbirds.

My Orioles fly up and hit the feeder do it will drip down and they flutter about getting their fill.
