Hummingbirds & Orioles - Do They Get Along?
Since this is my first year at feeding Hummers and Orioles, my question is short and simple:
It is alright to place hummingbird and oriole feeders on the same pole system?
Or will this cause an Avian conflict of some sort?
I just obtained a second Wild Birds Unlimited Advanced Pole system - with two sets of arms -specifically with the intention of feeding both hummers and orioles.
One end of one "arm" is (temporarily or permanently) supporting a hanging basket of two Fushia plants (I'll decide its status later) and the other three "ends" will support one or two hummingbird feeders and/or one or two oriole feeders - one of which contains two jelly "jars" and two spikes for orange halves.
I'll probably obtain an extension post and add a separate third arm so that I can add a fourth feeder on the pole and still accomdate the Fuchsia plants.
For those not familiar with WBU's Advanced Pole System, I have provided a convenient aducational link.
Any insights and/or advice will be greatly appreciated.
