Trying to help a friend identify he yellow and black bird.   She says it eats oranges and grape jelly, if that helps.  Thanks!

I was sure it was going to be a Common Yellowthroat until I saw you said it eats oranges and jelly; that's classic oriole! Note that Orchard Orioles are smaller than many other orioles, so that can help wiht ID for females or immatures (males are pretty distinctive). I kept looking for black and rust-colored warblers the first several times I saw wintering Orchards here!
