Interesting about your Tulip Poplar [Liriodendron tulipfera] already in bloom! Ours have no leaves and no flowers in keeping with trees here that are all several weeks late due to convincing hard freezes in April. Usually our orioles also like their flowers. So, our Baltimore Orioles are sticking with oranges, grape jelly, suet, and hummingbird food.

It's now a week later, and I may go broke buying oranges, jelly and oriole "juice". My best guess is we are feeding somewhere around 25-30 orioles (20-25 Baltimores & 5-10 Orchards). Just yesterday, they went through 4 oranges, a jar of jelly and a nearly a quart of oriole "juice".
