Fruit Feeders

Fruit Eating Birds

Adding fruit feeders to your backyard can attract many fruit eating birds that might not otherwise come to feeders. Fruit can be offered in hanging feeders, wire feeders designed for holding pieces of fruit or fruit suet, or nectar feeders for fruit eating birds.

Some of the birds that like to eat orange halves placed in a holder are:

Eastern birds

  • Red-bellied Woodpeckers
  • Northern Mockingbirds
  • Brown Thrashers
  • Orchard Orioles
  • Baltimore Orioles
  • Scarlet Tanagers
  • Gray Catbirds
  • Rose-breasted Grosbeaks

Western birds

  • Hooded orioles
  • Bullock's orioles
  • Gray Catbirds
  • Western Tanagers

Grapes can be put on a cage or on a platform fruit feeder. Grapes are particularly attractive to:

Eastern birds

  • Northern Mockingbirds
  • Eastern Bluebirds
  • Cedar Waxwings
  • Gray Catbirds
  • Scarlet Tanagers
  • Rose-breasted Grosbeaks
  • House Finches
  • Robins
  • Towhees

Western birds

  • Acorn Woodpeckers
  • Western Bluebirds
  • Western Tanagers
  • Black-headed Grosbeaks
  • House Finches
  • Towhees
  • Robins

Raisins can be placed in a platform feeder and are particularly attractive to:

Eastern birds

  • Northern Mockingbirds
  • Gray Catbirds
  • Eastern Bluebirds
  • Cedar Waxwings

Western birds

  • Western Bluebirds
  • Cedar Waxwings
  • Northern Mockingbirds


Success of feeding birds such as orioles seems to come when they are already present in the area. Mockingbirds seem to be very territorial. If you start feeding the mockingbirds, place the feeder away from existing feeders. It may take years to attract orioles if a customer is just starting to plant their yard with fruit trees and bushes. It is always fun to see what may be attracted to yards with fruit feeders. It is always worth the effort, especially if you are rewarded by seeing these birds up close.

Planting fruit producing trees and shrubs will attract a wider variety of birds and assist them in surviving hard winters.  The Robins will be attracted to cherries and crabapples.  Bluebirds will also be attracted by fruits!
