After spending the next few days watching my green berries turn red, and then disappear at the very moment I’d anticipated eating them off the vine, my sister and I came up with a plan.
Well, actually, SHE came up with the plan and I merely encouraged her once I heard it.
We have a plastic owl to scare away the pigeons, and it’s actually done a really great job for the past year. We just keep moving it around different areas of our front, back, & side yards, and it clears an area of about a block of those pesky, annoying, loud, dirty pigeons. So, why not put the owl in the strawberry bed? Really, it’s so simple, I’m embarrassed I didn’t think of it before she did. Sibling rivalry never really goes away, not even when you’re both adults. Anyhoo…here she is with our Plan A:
Decoy owl in the strawberry bed. Doesn’t he look scary?! That would keep ME out of the strawberries, if I were a little tiny bird.
HA! Take that, theiving birds!
Round 1 winner: The humans.
