“My” orioles like my h-bird nectar feeder too (as well as all the oranges and dishes of grape jelly)!
One of them even flicked off one of the bee guards to make the sugar water easier to drink. One also discovered he can put 1 foot on a little tiny hummingbird perch for better balance!

We have lots of Mourning Doves and have never seen this behavior. Maybe because we have so many feeders? Year round we have 13 sunflower seed feeders and three suet feeders (each holding three cakes). Now we also have a hummingbird feeder (no hummers yet tho), a Baltimore Oriole feeder, and a grape jelly feeder. Some years we have four hummingbird feeders. The Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers like the hummingbird feeder too. Actually, the Oriole prefers it to the Oriole feeder.
