Our OR-1 Oriole Feeder was one of the first feeders we designed over 30 years ago and it works so well it is still the design we use today! Orioles find the deep, vibrant orange of the base and top of our oriole feeder irresistible. The color draws them in naturally as ripe, juicy fruits do in the wild. We use our same proven clear, up-swept feeding tube design as our HB-1 Hummingbird Feeder which allows easy access for the much larger orioles and still allows you to watch them drinking. One of the best perks of this feeder is that it not only attracts orioles but Indigo Buntings, Purple Finches, American Goldfinches, and of course hummingbirds all enjoy drinking from the OR-1, too! The larger birds mentioned don’t feed while hovering so we designed the feeder to have a generous pair of flexible non metallic perches, but even hummers will land for a break while feeding. Here’s what some of our customers have said about Peter's Feeders OR-1 Oriole Feeder and we have these letters on file:
“We would like to purchase 1 or 2 more because the orioles seem to prefer this type of feeder.”
“We absolutely love your feeders. We have tried in the past to get orioles and thanks to your feeders we are successful. We also have many other varieties of birds we’ve never had before.”
“The birds absolutely love this feeder and out of my 17 hanging throughout the yard, this is by far their favorite.”
We designed the OR-1 to be easy to fill and it holds 8 oz of nectar (sugar water). Peter's Feeders are handmade in Wisconsin from impact resistant plastics, the feeders come with instructions for making your own nectar and are very easy to use. Expect a variety of visitors to your Oriole Feeder!

I've never had Orioles visit any of my feeders before. They loved my Peters feeder. The only complaint I have is that the wire releases too easily and my feeder dropped twice and pieces broke off. It is still functional and I glued the wire on so it won't come off again. I can't wait until next season when the orioles come back to my area.

I am avid birder. Absolutely love these critters. With my help ( I police the box and keep sparrows and ants away), we even have a few hatchings of blue birds at my house. But I have always been frustrated with the oriole nectar feeders one can buy. They are junk. I have tried just about every one of them and they all have 3 things in common. Cheaply made (though they command a fairly spendy price tag), hard to clean and every last one of them leaks. This year I went on a search for a better one and I found Peter's Feeders. So happy! This feeder from Peter is very well made, sturdy, great design, easy to clean and has not leaked a drop. I love it! I see my hummingbirds are using this oriole feeder, even though they have their own feeder. If you love the orioles, get this feeder.

These are Christmas gifts and they have not really used them yet.

Our Goeorgia hummingbirds love this feeder! They feed and then rest. We have seen several who spend several minutes just sitting there, before expending their saved up energy and fly off.

Exactly the right size for an oriole feeder. Very well made. I haven't put it out quite yet, but I know the orioles will love it.

I was very surprised when Peter's Feeders actually volunteers to stand behind an earlier purchase that broke. I was about to replace it and it was Peter who talked to me about allowing him to try to fix it. When I sent it to him, he decided that he wasn't happy with the way the plastic was weathering and chose to replace instead of repair the feeder.
Very impressed with his professionalism.

I have had this type of feeders for about 28 years and am totally pleased with it. I have the red hummingbird one also. The orioles and hummingbirds use the same feeders. It is easy to clean and fill and since it is clear, I can give it a quick look to see when it needs refilling.

I ordered this feeder and was sad that it arrived with a broken piece. Pete called me immediately in response to my call and drove over to replace it the very next day. The feeder is fantastic and what an amazing company.

I have purchased 3 other Oriole liquid feeders in the past and they always leak or break after only one season.
My Orioles kept getting on my hummingbird feeders, so I was looking for a feeder that the orioles could have for their own. I found the Peters Feeder and it works great! It is sturdy and the concept is awesome and no ants! I am very pleased with my purchase and would highly recommend this feeder.
