[NAFEX] Varmints and Netting

    Go to a hobby store and buy some red beads and aluminum wire to take 
care of your cherry eating birds.  I have zero problem with birds eating my 
cherries.  I leave the cherry decoys in the trees all year.  The soft 
aluminum wire expands as the branches expand and if I find decoys on the 
ground, I know some critter pulled it off.
    Warning:  If you loop the wire around the beads, it won't fool the 
critters.  You've got to attach the wire so it mimics the  cherries.

I used to have cherry picking parties here and everyone went home with
a box full.  Then the crows noticed and have nested in my surrounding
conifers ever since.  They like them as they just start to colour, so
the cherries are all gone before they are ripe enough for me.
