Varmint proof oriole feeding

So we now have two male orioles "feeding" on our hummingbird feeder. I don't mind, but sooner or later the hummingbirds are going to want in. I'm wondering if there is a way to put out some jelly and orange slices that isn't going to attract all kinds of varmints to our yard and they will for sure vandalize something lightweight. We have raccoons, skunks, opossum, groundhogs, and squirrels, not to mention chipmunks. Also starlings. I'm not trying to eradicate all mammals from my vicinity, but I'd like to keep their numbers in check! Just setting out a dish and an orange slice isn't going to cut it, I've already had those dragged around the garden overnight. Anyone have an ingenious oriole feeder that works for them?
