Battling the Birds

We have an abundance of cherries this year...

...which are not yet quite ripe...

...and even though some of them look ALMOST ready, they are not. The birds, however, seem to feel that by using the same strategy they used with the strawberries (pick 'em while they're green, that way we get them ALL), they will be the winners again. I'm thinking about a herring net to cover the trees for next year, as the number of cherries left on the trees each day is rapidly diminishing. On the other hand, I really like hearing them around the house and yard, it makes quite a difference. Cherries or birdsong?

I also have a few blueberries to look forward to, though, and so far, I don't think that they've been spotted...
