when do birds attack fruit trees?



They wait till the fruit is ripe and then pile in! Starlings like cherries and grapes. Apples sometimes are pecked at. Ripe Williams Pears get visitors too. Depends on the sweetness of the fruit and how many birds are around the place. My brother says pigeons go after Jostaberry on his allotment. He only uses it as a hedge/windbreak, a few pots of jam come off them, and the birds can have the rest. I don't recall them attacking our raspberry, loganberry in one garden we had. We had such long rows maybe we didn't notice. A lot of people grow soft fruit in a cage.
