A Baltimore Oriole visited the hummer feeders late yesterday afternoon. I've put out fresh sweet grapefruit halves, and will add oranges when we have some on hand.

Janie, your present feeder will be fine. Hummers are clever enough to remember where food is found. That bit of red ribbon serves to attract their attention. After that, the little buzzbirds will remember food is there.
