I've read that the same mixture we make for hummingbirds is perfect for orioles. 1 part sugar 4 parts water. It might be less expensive than oriole "juice". Our orioles are drinking out of the hummingbird feeder this year for the first time.

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".
