I gave them birdhouses and nest-building-yarn and I've been careful not to use toxic chemicals around the yard. The only thing I asked was that they stay out of the vegetable garden. As a gentle reminder, I hired Stevie Wonder as a bouncer.

Lately, I've noticed suspicious litter all around the outside edge of the garden. I don't actually see the birds do it, but the evidence is there every morning - bird droppings all around the outside of the fence.
So far they haven't been eating the vegetables (although Sparky thinks they snatched his blueberries despite the wickedly brilliant bird cage he built) but they're getting closer.
The next thing we know, they'll be smoking and drinking and making s'mores in our firepit.
So I think we need to get some additional security.
