Outsmart the Birds


Stones painted as strawberries when put around strawberry plants in the spring will keep birds from eating your berries because the birds will think the ripened berries are stones.

What a cool idea! I will do this! Can also put a basket of them in the kitchen....I like this one.

Will the birds break their little peckers when they try to eat the rocks??

I have absolutely NO artistic talent. The birds would be laughing their little tail feathers off at my berries. Got a place where I can buy some?

What if you paint the cat to look like a strawberry? That might discourage the little birds a lot better
