birds in cherry tree

My cherry tree limbs are so loaded with cherries that they are dipping so much that it is impossible to walk under them. However, am I ever going to get any cherries? The birds are feasting. Nothing seems to deter them. I have white fabric strips dangling from limbs plus my metal butterfly cutouts. Does anyone know anything that will really keep the birds away? Ideas appreciated.

I live in southwest Michigan where the cherry trees are abundant. I suggest getting an fake owl (found in bird feed stores or online at Gardner's Supply) and placing it in the tree. The owl will scare the birds away. Also you might try hanging old aluminum pie pans from strings in the tree. Hope this helps
