In a bowl, combine 1 part sugar with 4 parts water.
Mix the ingredients until the sugar dissolves in the water.
Purchase an oriole feeder, as the typical hummingbird feeder is too small for these larger birds. Make sure that the ports and bases are a bright color, such as orange, in order to attract the orioles.
Buy a feeder with ant moats or install your own. This keeps insects attracted to nectar away from the sugar water.
Pour the nectar in the oriole feeder.
Place the feeder in a location away from pesticides and close to nectar-producing flowers and berry bushes that also attract orioles.
Every two or three days, clean out the nectar feeder with hot water. Replenish the ports with fresh nectar, discarding any remaining nectar during the cleaning.
