We Don't Want to Share our Grapes with the Birds
One of the things my sister has tried to deter the birds, is to place a goose and an owl ornament on and around the arbour. I'm not sure how that should work, since they're birds too. Would smaller birds actually be scared of them? Doesn't seem that way. For now she has some of the vines covered with a bright fabric. That way the pests can't get to our grapes and we may actually be able to enjoy at least a few bunches.
Do you grow grapes? Would love to hear what you do to keep the birds away.
