To Kill a Mockingbird
not really but we have a pair of pesky mockingbirds living in our tree in the backyard. We really enjoyed the antics of these 2 birds until they spied our juicy, ripe, red strawberries. They honed in on these luscious berries eating them right down to the stem. We planted these strawberries last year, not expecting much but, surprise, these are producing a nice size strawberry. Hubby put some wire baskets over the berries 2 days ago and the mockingbirds were not happy. They would sit on the windmill above the plants, zoom down, sit on the baskets, walk around the baskets, trying to find a way to get at just one of the red berries. They do not give up, everyday they see if we have moved the baskets just enough to get to one berry. T decided the birds should not get all the berries yesterday.
