I have prepared a feeder solution of 1 part sugar to 4 parts water and filled a hooded oriole feeder hoping to attract the parents that have set up shop in the Palm tree next door. Not seen any babies. We have a crow family that is really obnoxious and I am afraid they are offing eggs and babies. My neighbor is putting out chicken meat for the crows to hopefully fill them up! We will see how this works.
My feeder has not been found yet. I know it can take time.
Hooded orioles create a woven basket for the nest that is made of the dried palm STRINGS, for lack of a better word. They weave the string into the underside of a Palm frond.
