This is the first time in several years that I have a hope of getting some cherries from this tree. Once it got too big to net, the birds stripped it clean before the cherries fully ripened. I got many responses to my post about how to keep the birds at bay. Tried many things like hanging strips of white fabric, hanging pie plates so that they bang, wrapping with sheer curtains, etc. However, the one that worked, was hanging rubber snakes from the branches. So far this is working GREAT. The birds feast on the high branches and the snakes protect the fruit I can reach.
