    Just as soon as my strawberries are finished blooming, I scatter 
numerous red-painted, strawberry size stones among the plants.  The birds 
immediately descend on the strawberry patch to peck on those rocks.  Tiring 
of no tasty reward, the birds ignore the patch.  Then when the berries 
turning red, the birds continue to ignore the patch and I pick up the stones 
for use next year.
