I know that one answer to this is to cover everything with reemay or some time of netting but aside from that, is there anything else that can be done for all of these little birds munching my peas, lettuce & even brassica leaves down to the nub? Seriously here, it's birds. Not rabbits or rats or mice or anything else. I've watched them do it and now I am so grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
I suppose netting is an option but it is a lot of area to net and I wondered if anything else works for you---shiny things like mylar strips or foil or scare eyes or?
Thanks for the help. I'm hesitant to even start seedlings in the ground this year. They seem voracious.
