    Along about this time of year i start hanging out my 'decoys.'  I bought 
round beads and berry beads (berry beads resemble raspberries), installed 
wire to hang them, and hang them in the trees and bushes.  The birds go wild 
over them scattering them all over the yard.  Then I just collect them and 
re-hang them.  By the time the fruit turns red, most of the birds seem 
convinced that red things are not edible.  Some birds, like Robins, are 
easily fooled and some not.  Doesn't work 100% but it really helps.
