Is Grape Jelly Safe for Hummingbirds?
Posted 18 May 2012 - 10:11 PM
We've been hoping to draw the Orioles to the nectar in an Oriole feeder and I put some grape jelly in a small yogurt container and its hanging from a hook. The only takers of these are our little Hummies. I use the same sugar to water concentration for both oriole and hummingbirds. We are quite surprised they are eating the jelly. Is this safe for them? If it isn't, we'll just stick to feeding nectar and oranges, then eat the jelly ourselves.

I am assuming both the Orioles and Hummies are getting other food sources since they stop for a bite or sip and then leave.

I tried putting jelly into a bowl that could have passed for an orange half, but the Orioles seemed downright frightened of it. Silly birds...
