Judy Porter, of Nelson Township, sent us these photos of birds eating grape jelly from her back deck last summer. She said they are two different types of Baltimore Orioles, and that she also feeds them orange halves.
Judy said she feeds the birds from early fall to late spring. “We have pine, wild cherry, young maple and wild crabapple trees, with a pond in back, so get a big variety of birds,” she explained.
They also get a variety of food, including wild bird seed, plain sunflower seed, cracked corn, peanut butter, suet cakes, old bread and nuts.
So how do birds know what’s good for them to eat? Click link for Ranger Steve’s article, “How birds know.”
