I also have a couple of those large woodpecker suet feeders. It has the wire cage mounted inside a plank of green painted wood. I'm thinking about about drilling a hole in the wood, below the suet cage, and inserting a 1/4 inch dowell for a perch. Then, I'll put in two orange halves, one pointing one way the other the other way.
Here is it early in July and I may have lost the chance to feed any orioles, but I have several kinds of woodpeckers that visit, maybe they will enjoy a bit of orange.
Now, don't laugh but here is the orange feeder I fashioned from a coat hanger. Don't know if it will work, but you can't knock the price, lol.
